5 REASONS TO MAKE A SHOTGUN YOUR PRIMARY HOME DEFENSE WEAPON
01 Larger Point of Impact
Hitting a target 25 feet away, a shotgun can yield an 8- to 10-inch wide spread. This increases the probability that your first shot will be the last shot as the threat is neutralized.
02 Wider Variety of Ammo Types
From buck shot to bird shot to slugs, the variety allows you to fine-tune what you use to defend your home.
03 Greater Stopping Power
This goes hand-in-hand with the larger point of impact and ammo choice. A chest load of double aught buck shot is harder to recover from than a 9mm through the shoulder.
04 Easy to Aim and Transition from Target to Target
Because precise aim and trigger control are not factors, a shotgun is more forgiving with respect to aim; this the leads to faster target transitions to neutralize multiple threats.
A shotgun is often perceived as more dangerous than a handgun. Maybe because the bad guy knows that when you pull the trigger he’s gonna get hit.
