    Personally, more interested in the V3/13. It's a big $ differences from the 14, but with an RDS that's a potent combo. Perhaps more ammo sensitive?

    The V3/13 looks like it fits the role of tight quarters defense pretty well. Quick follow up shots with no need to cycle the action (like the Shockwave) is appealing. The weak link would be if it's a finicky eater when it comes to ammo. Instead of working a pump action you'd be clearing malfunctions if it doesn't agree with the ammo. The cost is certainly up there as well.

    That's what I said at the beginning of this thread.

    The Versa Port gas system, which Remington introduced with the VersaMax, generally gets good reviews for it ability to adapt to different powered loads:

    The V3 which the Tac13 is born of, is different from the VersaMax primarily that the receiver is built for 3inch shells instead of 3.5 inch Magnums.

    Wish they would fix the site so it didn't double as much as it does.

    One good thing about shotguns is you can use #1 or #4 buckshot and if any miss they wont penetrate walls and neighbors' houses near as much as a missed 9mm bullet.

    Living in the country on acreage, I bought the 20 gauge Tac14 to carry with me on the riding mower for snake and vermin response. The damn water Moccs will chase the mower when I'm down near the creek. Rides much better in the scabbard and quicker to get into action.
