When it comes to any type of TEOTWAWKI (The end of the world as we know it) survival situations, there are some common sense survival tactics that everyone should be aware of.

  • Survival requires proper planning, a proper mindset and good gear.
  • Food, water, guns, ammo and other necessary survival gear should be already stocked before a survival situation occurs.
  • Avoid dehydration and starvation at all costs.
  • Have a secure, well stocked, defendable location available.
  • Firearms and knives for defensive purposes are essential.
  • Avoid strange, dangerous areas and strange, dangerous people.
  • Crowds can quickly turn violent and can get you killed.
  • Light and noise discipline when appropriate is essential.
  • People will fight over scant resources.
  • Thugs will try and take what you have.
  • Martial law is always bad.
  • People who thought you were nuts for prepping when times were good will start showing up on  your doorstep when times are bad. 
  • Never show weakness.
  • You must rely on yourself.
  • You must have the will and the skill to stay alive.
  • Be a positive thinker and be confident in the decisions you make.
  • A welfare mentality will get you killed.
  • Trust your sixth sense.  If something seems wrong then it is wrong.
  • Bad guys with guns should be avoided.  If you cannot avoid them then you need to be better armed then they are.

The 12 Gauge Pump Action Shotgun is best suited for close range, short duration, defensive conflicts that do not require a significant amount of rounds per target.  In terms of close range stopping power, the 12 Gauge Pump Action Shotgun using 2 3/4″ 00 buckshot is one of the best available small arms to defensively end hostilities at an effective range of 0 – 25 yards.  If your home is invaded and your life and families lives are on the line; the 12 Gauge Shotgun is a formidible self defense weapon.

Proficiency with a 12 Gauge shotgun is only one part of an overall defensive solution.  It is just as important to have the right mindset and the right attitude.  You should practice defensive shotgun techniques at reasonable intervals, but also remember it is not only the shotgun which can save your life but the skill and determination of the person defensively using the shotgun.

Recommended 12 Gauge Pump Action Shotguns for home defense include the Remington 870 Express Tactical, Remington 887 Nitro Mag, Mossberg 500, Mossberg 590, Mossberg 590A1, and the H&R Pardner.  The ideal defensive shotgun should be a 12 Gauge Pump Action Shotgun with a short 18.5″ smoothbore barrel. 

The shotgun is a tool which is designed for a mission so any modification which enhances the mission should be considered worthwhile.  Recommended shotgun accessories include a Pachmeyer recoil pad, ATI heatshield, ATI side saddle for stock mounting,  TacStar side saddle for receiver mounting, Surefire or UTG light, Blackhawk single point sling with single point sling adapter, Molle ammo pouches and a sufficient supply of 12 Gauge 2 3/4″ 00 buckshot ammunition.

Train with your shotgun and make sure you know how to handle it properly.  Fundamentals should include safe handling, loading, unloading, clearing malfunctions, target acquisition and proper shot placement.  When used at close range, hitting an attacker with a well placed round of 00 buckshot = the equivilant mass of 4.5 rounds of 9mm ammo. 

Remember that using your shotguns sights is essential at all but the closest of ranges.  The more distant the enemy, the more refined and precise your sight alignment must be.  Be aware of what is in front of your target, behind your target and to the sides of your target and factor in the possibilities of over penetration accordingly.
