What should I look for in a shotgun for home defense? Never handled a shotgun so trying one out will be a must do, but what are the essentials I should look for. I was looking at a Remington 870 for home security, but again, I don't know much.

I shot competition with the 870 for years. The nice thing about it is you can change the barrel for different needs. You should buy a gun you will go out and shoot with. You might hunt or just shoot clay targets. Buy one that is simple, modified choke, normal stock. Go to walmart, buy it there for price. Its not the big pattern you see on TV. Great for home defense and anything else you want to do with it. The Mossberg 500 is another good choice.

I got my 870 from gunbroker.com. It was barely used and came with two barrels for $400. I'm very happy with it.

I have both a Mossberg 500 and Rem 870. I like the 870 for shooting, but the Mossberg better for home defense. The main reason being the placement of the safety. The safety is on the top of the reciever, whereas the safety on the 870 is on the trigger guard. Handle the both of them and see what is the most comfortable.

Guys, stop giving spider guard good advice re shotguns. The only reason why he needs that is because he needs an equalizer from the ass whooping he gets from his other half. Yo Makul! I'm back in Manila fool!
