    Personally, I think they are a joke. A hunting shotgun would just as good, if not better, than a tactical shotgun. The gun by my bed is NEF single-shot 20 gauge. Besides, a gun is only as good as the person behind it.

      You have a Breacher Barrel made for Blowing off Door locks and Door hinges? A Regular 18"Barrel will do the same thing with out a Claw on the end.

          Also, ya gotta be aware about how it's gonna look in court, in front of a judge and/or jury.

          If your shotgun has no hunting application, it is easy for a DA or the perp's lawyer who is suing you to paint a picture of you as a paranoid who can't wait to shoot somebuddy.

          A cheap shotgn is best, cuz they're gonna take it from ye ennyhow!

            The main reason i'd ever want a shotgun with a short barrel is for bear defense.

              Tactical crap is for military/police/wannabes. Any shotgun is the best home defense weapon.

                Silly. It is a big investment that can't be used for anything else and will probably never be used. Most Americans will live a lifetime without ever having a shootout in their own home and I don't place high value on unused opportunities. If you ever do use it, as bayouwwoof says, it doesn't look good for you in court.

                You could easily use a good hunting shotgun for defense if needed, however that would not be my first choice for a home defense tool either. Have you ever tried to point one around a hallway door without exposing your vitals to a bad guy? Have you ever tried to operate one with one hand? A shotgun is better than nothing but I'll take a 1911 with a few extra clips any time.

                  I think its awesome man. Its a purpose built "home defense" shotgun,what it looks like in court as some others have said does not even make sense? I don't want to sound like a jerk but I wouldn't take advice on your shotgun from guys using single shot hunting shotguns to protect their life and family. I think your shotgun is awesome and lets face it, that standoff barrel just plan looks cool as hell, would make a great face masher too.

                        A breacher barrel it's a good Barrel what the court thinks about you doesn't really matter if you decide to put this type of Barrel on your shotgun it is totally up to you also a preacher Barrel it's made to take down doors to take the hinges off the door but it could be used 4 tactical defense what the judge doesn't really care about what kind of barrel you got a rifle if you like the barrel on your shotgun it is totally up to you let's put it this way if someone breaks into your house they got what's coming to them especially if they're threatening your life Semper Fidelis
