When you consider how you set up your home defense shotgun, you should be aware of the specs that make it optimal for close-quarters defensive situations. Rob Pincus discusses the components that he thinks are best suited for your home. He explains everything from the length of your barrel to the various options you have for the top and bottom of the gun like sights and flashlights. Ideally, you should think about getting a shotgun with a short barrel, an extended tube, a short stock with recoil absorption and an accessory rail for a secondary light or laser.
