      Talking Shotgun Recommendations for Beginner?

      Evening friends,

      So hey listen, anyone got a recommendation for a good shotgun ideal for those kind of LA Riots type situations where I might be surrounded by massive fires and lootings, especially when it comes to protecting my Barry Manilow collection? Because you never know in life.

      I was suggested a Benelli M-2 but the price tag is pretty steep right now. Also suggested Mossbergs but there's quite a few models out there and I get lost in the details.

      I guess my criteria would be an all black model, using rounds that are still cheap to buy right now, good for a beginner and affordable (under $1000), but would continue to appreciate in value.

      Thanks for any suggestions!

      For self defense, your typically looking at a 12 gauge (the all-time favorite home defense gun). 16 and 20 gauges are also available though not as plentiful. Contrary to the numbering they are less powerful. Consequently, they kick less, and that's a definite advantage for your first shotgun! I have heard it argued that a good load in a twenty gauge makes a fine home defense gun. Someone more educated than I should fill you in on the intricacies of load, velocity, etc.

      As to manufacturers, these are the top names:
      Benelli
      Beretta
      Mossberg
      Winchester
      Remington
      Stoeger

      (What others am I missing guys? Any lesser known names you would vouch for?)

      Your second big decision is pump or auto. Personally I'd go with pump because it's a heck of a lot cheaper ... and it just sends tinglies down your spine everytime you rack it

      Check this guy out: http://www.winchesterguns.com/prodin...d=252&cat=021C I haven't heard anything on it, but that's a rocking price!
