Shotgun for my wife

Post by noname » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:48 pm

We are both getting "long-in-the-tooth" so to speak. She wants a shotgun for at home defense. She is enthralled with the clack-clack of a pump. Last weekend we took one of my 12 ga out. She is a bit on the small side 5'3" 122 lbs and her arms and body are not really built for a 12 ga pump though she could shoot it but with a sore shoulder after 2 rounds of #4 buck. Her thinking is the clack-clack of a pump would get most home invaders heading for the door but if not she could shoot-em. Regardless the gun needs to be one she is not afraid to practice with.

She has a concealed carry permit and keeps a Kahr PM 9 in her purse.

I found a Mossberg .410 pump but only has a 2 round mag + one in the chamber. Probably enough, though we routinely don't keep a round in the chamber of any home defense weapons. It seemed to be a size for youth or smaller people.

At one time, I had a 28 ga side by side and like a fool sold it. I have not found a 28 ga pump yet.

Any advice??

Mossberg's web site shows several .410 pump-action shotguns with 5+1 capacity.
