Ithaca makes great shotgun, though aftermarket parts and accessory maybe limited. I suggest Remington or Mossberg due to their commonality. Mossberg
500 or 590 are very well tested shotguns. They are the Fords and Chevys of shotguns.
It's great to have assault weapons as toys, fantasizing SHTF scenarios when you need to pump large rounds quickly into multiple targets. But have
those as 2nd line of defense, or when you want to launch an assault on some unfortunate group of people.
At self-defense range (that means less than 50 yards), a .308 will over-penetrate, and just not made for close quarter combat. They are made for long
When you kill someone with an assault weapon, you will have a LOT LESS sympathy from the judge and jury and your self-defense excuse will have holes
that the lawyers will lock-on to put you in JAIL.
Think about it, killing someone with an assault rifle in the name of self-defense will give you a weak chance in court. It will give those stupid
lawyers a REASON to label you "Gun NUT" or "A gun nut looking for a reason to KILL".
Guns are no jokes in these days and age, many Americans view gun owners as extreme right-wingers and would love to see gun-owners put in jail for just
owning a firearm.
Times have changed, use of deadly force for HD/SD requires solid reasons and the right firearm that won't paint you as a gun nut looking to kill for
I love guns and I hate to see people go to jail for some dumb reason.
