Remington 870 12 gauge Pump Shotgun
That sound, piercing the darkened silence inside an otherwise quit home, has probably thwarted more burglaries than any statistician will ever know.
It is a criminals worst nightmare.
Owner awake - Armed with a shotgun...
Nothing says "Get the hell out of here" clearer than that.
I have a lot of firearms. Most of them are kept in a large reinforced concrete and steel vault.
This one isn't.
I have it modified with a 10 round magazine extension, and I carry a full reload on the sling.
"Just in case"
I have also opted to keep this weapon equipped with a nice, hard wooden stock.
I learned the art of the vertical and horizontal buttstroke in the Marines once upon a time, and I have a special fondness for weapons capable of properly employing such tactics.
I am a strong proponent of the "I'd rather have it, and not need it, than need it and not have it" club.
I've never been much of a bird hunter or trap shooter. I'm not bad at it, just haven't done a lot of it.
Therefore, I feel more comfortable with the Deer sights than I would with a bead or rail.
If I were shooting skeet or trap, or birds, I wouldn't be using the 18" barrel anyway.
However, shooting skeet isn't what I bought this particular shotgun for.
This is the last thing many bad men have seen since the 870's inception.
It is a fate I would not hesitate to impart upon anyone threatening my family inside my home.
So long as I knew I had acted in the self defense of those I love, I would never lose a moments sleep thereafter.
So help me God!
