    And a single 00 pellet does not equal a 5.56 wound channel.

    Plus for most people the carbine is easier to shoot, while taking less training to get to and maintain reasonable proficiency.
    Not to mention a rifle has 4x the ammunition without reload. I love my 1301, but hard to argue a rifle is just a better all around fighting weapon.

    Truth of the matter is most shotgun fight don’t go more than two rounds. As with anything else you have to put the time in on them and most won’t. It will stay loaded in the closet or the corner waiting for the day.

    For me personally-there will never be a time where my defense shottys wont have a role.
    The obedient always think of themselves as virtuous rather than the cowards they really are.

    It's funny 'cause it's true.

    A short (18 in, shorty stock) SxS with a light & two extra shells on it (optional) and a pistol on you for backup & you're plenty HD ready.

    Unless your concern is a home invasion by guys who have armor and REALLY are willing to push aside their dead to get you. That's kinda rare.

    Same. I would feel just as confident and comfortable with my 1301 as I would with any of my rifles or pistols.

    Another thing to look at depending on where you live and the political climate, defending yourself with a shotgun might be much easier to justify than using a Black Rifle. Imagine a leftist prosecutor making a huge issue out of using a weapon of War (because no one needs a weapon of war) to defend themselves. I keep a plain Jane 870 20” rifle sights Hogue youth stock on loaded with #4 buck. Hey Mr/Mrs prosecutor I used my youth modle deer gun to defend my self. It’s all bullshit but something to ponder depending on where you live.
