I didn't want to steal the other thread, so I started this one. I hope I made the right choice.
I have never owned a shotgun but am looking at the 870.
If it can be used for HD can it also be used for hunting? Remember Newbie here.
I would like to justify my purchase as a dual purpose weapon.
What kind of spread at 100 yards? you use slugs? 00 buck?
I saw on a TV show "The Best Defense" where they said to use Bird Shot for home defense. Devastating up close and hardly any wall penetration .
Can a 12 gauge use bird shot? Or is it only 410? Please refer to Newbie statement above.
I am sure some of you are LOL, but I gotta learn sometime. And I don't mind.
Thanks, And have you've seen this?
