    Thank-you to all who left posts on my thread. On Monday my wife and I purchased a 20 gauge Remington-11-87 auto in a youth stock.With the youth stock the shotgun is lighter and enables us to handle the shotgun fairly easy inside our home. We haven't test fired this gun but when we do I'll let you know how the Remington handled.

    Mossberg 500 18.5" barrel. If you want it really short, get the pistol grip. Of course you'll catch grief from many. Not me, I have one.

    As mentioned previously, the coach double is the most compact of the legal (Non-NFA) shotguns that still has the stock. I have a Stevens coach gun in 3" chambers that stays by the side of the bed. It is simple and very effective.

    Great gun... easy to manage..., my wife feels very comfortable w/this one as well. Me, I prefer my Rem 11-87 or my Moss J.I.C. 500 Cruiser... check them both out.

    remington 870 is the way to go.

    I like the steel receiver of the Remington Model 870 better than the alloy receiver of the Mossberg guns. My 870 isn't configured for defensive use but I've hunted with it on occasion for years. The 870 seems to be more dependable and durable than the Mossberg. This is only my view gleaned from observations on the range and in the field.
