I picked up one of these today for home defense purposes. It got a great deal on it so I figured what the hell. I loaded the chamber with a 3 1/2 in #4 load and the rest in the tube are the PDX Slug/Buck combo. I have only fired 20 rounds out of it but I was impressed. It patterned well but its light weight made it slightly recoil heavy. Overall I liked it pretty well.
