I’ve been fortunate to have tried almost every tactical 12 gauge pump action shotgun on the market today; and I own many as well including Mossberg 500′s and 590′s, Remington 870′s and 887′s, H&R Pardners, etc., etc. While they are all well made, quality firearms, if I only had time to grab one for the zombie apocalypse; for me the choice is clear.
The shotgun I would choose must have 8+1 shotshell capabilities within the tube; using 00 buckshot in 2 3/4″ length. It must hold an additional 5 shells on the folding ATI stock and hold an additional 4 shells on the aftermarket shot shell carrier which mounts opposite the ejection port.
The shotgun I would choose can be used with the stock folded in confined spaces; or unfolded for proper cheek weld and shoulder support. It must be rugged, durable, dependable and most of all, be as close to 100% reliable as possible. If the zombie apocalypse happens; my choice of shotgun; for the reasons stated above is my Mossberg 590 12 gauge pump action shotgun.
