This is a discussion on a shotgun is a sucker's choice of a shtf longarm, almost as bad as a muzzleloader. within the Shotguns forums, part of the HandGuns, Pistols and Revolvers, Long Rifles, Shotguns, SKS, AK, AR category; Originally Posted by Annie When applying for homeowners insurance I was asked twice if my dog was a pitbull...

I have a 30 lbs furry chicken that barks when it hears something. That's good enough for now.

My last impulse purchase was a used Benelli Supernova Tactical. Gun was practically new with less than 100 shells run through it, I couldn't pass it up.

See when you compare apples and oranges....its easy to hit the pros and cons that you want.....but it doesn't lessen the argument that a person should eat fruits and veggies....
You sir, are making an apples and oranges comparison....but if your going to have one SHTF gun....have it be one that suits YOUR needs, not someone else's.
I strongly believe that a good shotgun should be considered for anyone’s arsenal. With different loads, barrels, and on some shotguns chokes, it can be used to take any game in North America. Although possible to take pheasants, geese, and ducks with a rifle, most people would have better luck with a shotgun. It can also be used for self defense. I own several shotguns and in addition to their long barrels own a smooth bore 20” slug barrel and a rifled barrel for shooting sabot rounds for longer distances.
I have different firearms for most situations that I can think of, including shotguns. If someone could only own one firearm I would not criticize them if they chose a shotgun, especially if they lived in an area where because of trees/brush was heavy enough that in most cases their visibility was limited. Yes, there are disadvantages to shotguns including limited range and the weight of the ammunition, there are advantages to owning one because of their versatility. One last thought, I believe that some people focus entirely on self defense and ignore hunting for putting food on the table. Personally I try to cover both.
Suck it up buttercup.
The right tool for the right job. Shotguns are among the many tools I have at my disposal.

Honestly my shotgun is the go-to home defender. Should we have to fall back, regroup and up-arm there are battle rifles and so forth. I really want an Mp-5. I still think the little subgun is the perfect CQB weapon. Rifled slug at 30 yards? all day long in a paper plate.
