Best Tactical Shotgun

If you are thinking of buying a tactical shotgun for home defense, you really need to get the best and most suitable weapon you can afford. Let’s face it, there is no point in pussy-footing around – you want that bad guy down and down quick.

Certainly I have heard the argument that simply racking a pump action is enough to scare an intruder anyway, but that is simply not the case. He’s probably expecting you to be armed when he breaks in, and all that does is confirming his suspicions. In any event, as a firearm expert once said, the only time intruder should hear that is after you’ve fired the first shot. If someone is breaking into my home, I don’t want to take any chances. I want something that I KNOW is going to do the job, not keep my fingers crossed that I “might” scare him. In any case, he might well be armed too. tactical shotgun trainingThere are a lot of guns to choose from out there, but there are certain criteria that we should stick to. Not the least of these is barrel length. Maneuverability is key here. You need something with a barrel that’s short enough to swing around in a small space. You are not out hunting deer. If you can’t get the barrel through the doorway quickly, you can be in a lot of trouble. So you really need something 20″ or less. Most of the home defense shotguns are this kind of length anyway, but it is a point to bear in mind. Next, for a tactical home defense shotgun you want a pump action or semi-auto. Why? Because they are easy to load and easy to use. And they hold more than two shells. This is extremely important; suppose it isn’t a bad guy breaking into your home, suppose it’s two bad guys? You want a gun that has a stock. Sure, there are fans of the pistol grip, and in a very small apartment it might be an option that’s better than nothing at all, but only just. With a pistol grip, you just don’t have the same degree of accuracy that you have with a stock, or if you’re still using sights then you might just need a visit to the dentist afterwards. The stock of a shotgun is there to ensure that you remain in control and hit your target accurately. Shotgun Shell BandolierYou also want a shotgun that has several rounds. As mentioned above, it might just be two bad guys breaking into your home; it could even be more. You need to be sure that you’ve got enough shots to deal with any situation that might arise. If you had three intruders and only two shots and you were spot on target both times, you still have a problem. Let’s have as many rounds as possible.   So what are the ten best tactical home defense shotguns?

Remington 870 Express

It’s an old favorite, but it’s a favorite for a reason. It is tried and tested in many a bad situation.

It’s a 12 gauge and has an 18.5″ barrel and pump action with a capacity of 6 (+1). Not that it matters much for home defense purposes, but it has Cerakote weather resistant coating. It has a fully adjustable XS Ghost ring sight rain with a removable white bead front sight. SuperCell pad reduces the felt recoil by more than 50%. Yes, it costs a few dollars more, but then it’s a Remington.

Before you rush out to buy the one that you think is the best tactical shotgun, there’s one more thing you need to bear in mind. That is..

BONUS: Your Mind!

Two things you really need to be absolutely sure about. 1. The first is that you are fully prepared if the worst should happen. You need to think where you will keep the weapon so that it is to hand if you ever need it. 2. You also need to make sure that if push comes to shove you will use it. There’s precious little point in owning a tactical shotgun for home defense if you stop to worry about using it when faced with an intruder.

    Enjoyed the video; simply confirmed what I either knew or suspected. I have a Rem 887 tactical 12 ga. and here’s some interesting FYI. I originally had the full length 4+1 887 and sold it to a friend in order to get the 18.5 6+1. Turned out it had a defective bbl…..would not extract expended shells, but would simply jam every time I racked the slide. It didn’t matter what of several loads I tried. Incidentally, it also had a wavy, crooked shroud which I hadn’t noticed when I bought it (my bad). I called Remington Service Dept and explained the problem, mentioning the shroud and offset front sight as an afterthought. I was then asked for my name, address, and serial number of the firearm. I was then sent a replacement bbl (included another front sight and doorbuster choke) at zero cost to me. Have since installed it. Works like a charm. Thank you Remington.

    • Hi Derek,
      thanks for your comment here

      Could you share with the audience about what you either knew or suspected when you watching the video?
      And what do you think of our site and what other info you want to know?

  2. I am confined to a wheelchair from being run over by some fool in an SUV while on my new Buell XB9SX, My choice for a home defense weapon is the Mossberg 500 series with the 20 inch barrel and the nine round magazine. To modify the shotgun for my situation, I installed a Tapco M4 collapsible stock with pistol grip included, a heat shield, ghost ring sights and a laser sight. The pistol grip and laser allow me to shoot from the hip, along with having a weapon short enough to get through the house in a hurry (chasing bad people.) I also have a Charter Arms Detective Special in .38 Special that makes a fine companion for the Mossberg. All your comments in every presentation I have seen so far make perfect sense. You obviously have been there.

    • Hi Matt, thanks for you comment.

      I’m very happy to know that you customize shotgun the way for your situation. Actually, I’m about to write some posts about how to choose the accessories for shotgun. You really give me some idea that people may like what I’ll publish here. Quite encouraging.

      I wish you all is well, keep smiling and cheers! =)

    • I totally agree with you Matt, the Mossberg 500 is my home defense weapon as well and its California Legal! …for those of you who live here as well.

      I enjoyed reading your article David. thanks

    Thanks for the video James. Great info! Just looking for a tactical shotgun and happened on this site. More break ins in my part of the country so thought I would take an extra precaution. I have a double barrel 12 loaded with #1 buck but have decided to go tactical. Thanks!

  4. John Cooke says:

    I would have 5nately included the Benelli M400, 12 guage auto. This has been the the choice of the USMC for at least two decades for a battle shotgun. I can attest to its reliability and ease of use especially with Slug, breach and double

  5. Great list. Thinking about investing in a tactical shotgun. Thanks.

  6. geoff cooper says:

    ive recently acquired a weatherby SA-459, has anyone had any experience w one and if so, what do you think, overall I like the shotgun its light weight and fires nicely, maneuverability in tactical type situations is easy, but occasionally it doesn’t cycle properly and I will have to manually eject the spent shell

  7. I see that your # 1 pick for HD shotgun is the Remington 870 Express Tactical. I purchased one about a year ago because of it’s supposedly great reputation for reliability. Well, there is something your readers should know. Remington should be ashamed of themselves for putting a cheap ass orange plastic follower in this gun and marketing as a tactical weapon. The follower hangs up in the tube and when that happens you might as well have a ball bat in your hands because the shells in the tube will not cycle. If you buy this gun the first thing you absolutely must do is replace that part with an after market metal follower, preferably one that does not reduce the tube capacity. Again, shame on Remington for going cheap on such a critical component. I hope their stock holders appreciate the $10 saved on each one sold.
