Top Ten Best Tactical Shotguns

Studies show that a shotgun is the best weapon for home defense. While you could use a regular shotgun, the barrels are too long to be effective in confined spaces and sawing off the ends can be both dangerous to you as the shooter, and is generally illegal.

Below are the best Tactical shotguns you can use to defend yourself and those you love at home.

The Top Ten

1 Remington 870 Express Tactical

A 12 gauge with a short barrel that is tried and tested for home defense.

2 Mossberg 930 SPX

Another 12 gauge. You can affix a scope to this weapon to keep things easy.

3 Benelli M4

I have traditionally been a Mossberg shooter but after much research and digging a little deep in the pocket I purchased the Benelli M4. I will confess, this shotgun can shoot any load, feed and eject any shell (even when the barrel is hot from hundreds of rounds), and has an immediate sight alignment when you put it to your shoulder. I don't regret a cent and I know this will be my multi purpose shotgun for the rest of my life.

Used by the Marines, a semi-auto 12 gauge that will set you back on the price but it's worth every penny.

4 Mossberg 500 Tactical Persuader

Simple and clean, this gun has a ton of attachments you can put on it too.

5 Saiga 12 - SGL12-07

It's Russian, semi-auto, and has a detachable magazine.

6 Interstate Arms 12 Gauge Defender

Very inexpensive but still quality and effective.

7 Mossberg 590A1

A little longer barrel than the others, it's affordable and easy to find. It also holds 9 rounds.
