The 12 Gauge pump action shotgun is an extremely effective home defense weapon.  The following are 10 reasons why.

  1. It is the most powerful home defense weapon available at ranges of 10 yards or less.
  2. An attacker shot with 12 gauge 00 buckshot equals the equivilant mass of 4.5 rounds of 9mm ammo.
  3. Shotguns can be relatively inexpensive, are widely available and are lightly regulated.
  4. The basic sights are simple and easy to use.
  5. It blends simplicity, effectiveness and close range firepower.
  6. It offers one of the best one stop shot potentials when dealing with a hostile attacker.
  7. It is accurate, easy to use and can be safely loaded, operated, stored and maintained.
  8. It is mechanically reliable even in adverse conditions.
  9. It is best suited for short range, short duration conflicts.
  10. Many exterior components can be added or modified for mission specific use without any gunsmithing.
