The deterrence of the sound of a slide racking is overblown, but the devastating impact of nine 00 buckshot pellets hitting the chest of an intruder is not. Few things offer the same incredible ability to stop an attack as a shotgun.

When defending your bedroom, a shotgun hits like a howitzer. Here’s a look at some of the current home defense shotguns that might make sense for you when you’re protecting those you care about.
