Another Plug for the Shotgun

Yesterday, I read Richard Johnson's article in Guns & Patriots called "Guns for Disaster: What to Have When Katrina Comes to Your Town."

His comments on owning a shotgun make the perfect follow-up to my post on Monday:

A pump shotgun is probably the most versatile single weapon you can own.  With a 12 or 20 gauge shotgun you have a single tool that is well suited for taking birds, varmints, deer, bear and stopping bad people from doing bad things.
I like tactical guns as much as the next guy, but if money is tight, find a good condition, used Remington 870.  With a very small investment, you can get a second barrel to compliment the one it came with, giving you something short (18-20”) to protect the home, with something a little longer for hunting.
