The Shotgun is said to be the ultimate in a home defense firearm. Shotguns cast a shot pattern instead of a single bullet. They can take down an intruder even in the most inexperienced hands. Once properly set up, the shotgun is probably the best all-around choice for the average homeowner seeking a defensive firearm.

Shotguns shoot a shot pattern and can take down an intruder even in the most inexperienced hands. Learning to clean and maintain your shotgun is very easy.
You will need to learn to properly set up your shotgun, and how to manipulate it. The shotgun is probably the best all-around choice for the average homeowner seeking a defensive firearm.
The Simple Sound of Racking a Shotgun
It has been said and often repeated, that the simple sound of racking a shell into the chamber of a shotgun is enough to repel the most determined intruders. This mindset is incredibly shortsighted and is not true.
Shotguns can fire an array of standard and specialty ammunition. Ammo manufacturers offer numerous specific loads for practically every animal that walks the planet including humans.
The primary benefit of these loads is that most have multiple projectiles. That means multiple pellets of the same size. Each time you pull the trigger those multiple pellets increase your chances of impacting the target. As the distances from the muzzle increase, so does the spread of the projectiles. The pellets spread like a cone shortly after leaving the muzzle.
Ammo for the Shotgun is Available
Ammo for the shotgun consists of three categories birdshot, buckshot, and slugs. The good news is shotgun ammo is available. In tests of ammunition for self-defense stopping power, it is said that birdshot is literally for the birds. Slugs are a single projectile like a bullet and are very powerful. Many times slugs are considered too much for home defense. They can go through obstacles and outside walls ending up outside your home. Doing damage to people or property that you did not intend to do. Remember we are responsible for every round we fire. Buckshot is the number one go-to ammunition for home defense.
Picking the right gun and barrel length can be a mind-boggling process. There are a couple of manufacturers of good quality home defense shotguns that are reasonably priced and we can help you with these choices. Most time a shotgun purchase will be less money than a good handgun.
Do not worry about all the accessories made for these guns. With a little knowledge, you will be able to choose what’s right for you.
The beauty of a pump shotgun is its utter reliability, simplicity, and tactical usefulness. Shotgun training in Pueblo, Colorado can be obtained from a mini-class taught by Rick Sindeband. You can put yourself on the right path for shotgun use as a self-defense tool with just a little training.
