    They say one of the most terrifying sounds in the world is that of a shell being jacked into a 12 ga. That being said I wonder why I choose an automatic.

    Agree 100%, Carl. Don't give your position away and make that 1st shot count. I prefer a shotgun as well if I'm dealing with multiple intruders in a dark house at 0-dark thirty in the morning.

    Actually (wish list)...... I'd love to have a couple AA-12's for home defense. 12 gauge, fully auto with drum magazines. Russian military issue. Can't seem to get them in the States though. Ditto Saiga in similar config. but Saiga has a lot more recoil. With the AA-12, you can keep it on target even when firing one handed and just hammer away......

    Thoughts...... I understand there is a semi-auto civilian version of the AA-12 available here now. Came out in 2018. Very hard to find and very pricey, though. Might be better off (certainly more cost effective) to station several 12 gauge double barrel coach guns in strategic positions throughout the house. All the firepower in the world isn't going to help you if your weapon is at the other side of the house and several drug crazed thugs kick your door in.

    BTW...... As you have had it for a while now, how do you like your RIA pump action? How many shells does it hold and do you consider it a good value for the money?

    Thanks,

    I have a 12 gauge pump and an automatic and both are loaded with 00 buckshot. I also have several handguns but the shotguns are the ones I would go for if the need arises. I hope that day never comes. I keep a loaded 45 caliber Glock with an extra clip in the console of my Expedition. It is loaded with hollow points.

    Been procrastinating about buying a Remington Model 870 Tactical magazine-fed 13-1/2" bbl, 12g81360_REM_870_DM_12ga_18in_IC_RS_PG_right (1).jpg shotgun. Three and/or six round mags. Fastest time of any pump shotgun.

    I thought once of trying to come up with and alarm that would go off with the sound of a shell being jacked into a 12 ga. Thought it might scare them off.

    Thanks, Carl! I'll see if I can find a RIA pump action and check it out. I looked at their website and I see they have magazine fed shotguns as well. The one I looked at had several stick type mags of different capacity. The 9-shot mag is about as long as I could imagine using in a practical sense, though. The larger capacity 19 round mag is crazy long and I don't know how you could possibly maneuver in close quarters with it. I wonder if there is a drum mag that will fit the RIA VRPA40?

    Best regards,

    Harry
