I only own one gun, a Remington 870 that I only using for target shooting a handful of times per year. All of the tactical shotguns look super cool, always wanted one; I'm looking for an opinion from somewhere other than the reviews posted by Cabela's employees on their webpage.
However I feel if I'm going to get a gun that has little to no purpose except for slaying zombies, and looking cool, I should get an old side by side coach gun. Opinions from owners?

After typing this, I feel purchasing one of those guns would be like taking $400 and lighting it on fire.

You won't find a more reliable and functional shotgun than a Remington 870.

The old coach guns are cool and am still kicking myself for passing on a genuine Wells Fargo gun I found at an estate auction many years ago. You really have to ask yourself the purpose of the gun. If in the back of your mind it is a self-defense weapon, an old gun isn't a good choice. If it is just a fun gun, whatever appeals to you is the answer. The tactical guns are cool. I haven't justified having one as I have an 870 and a 9mm handy.

Each person has their own ideas for personal defense and how they should prepare. The 870 Tactical is a great weapon for the money. Next would be the 887 Tactical then the 870 LE version. Best would be the Benelli Tactical. All based on what we install in Law Enforcement Vehicles.

Benelli tactical shotguns are the best ... shoot great and clean up easy

I second the Benelli. Bought one a couple of months ago for home protection and love it. You can rip the shotgun apart in seconds to clean.

Thank you for the input fellas! Very doubtful that I would use this gun for personal defense, it would be a fun gun for shooting whatever my brothers and I feel like. Our latest target is filling up water or soda bottles, then launching them with the water balloon slingshot, and blasting them with a 12 gauge! I will take a video after this memorial day!

If you are just looking for having fun and blowing things up, there is always a street sweeper.



You should also check out exploding targets too.

KSG, that is about the only "tactical" shotgun I would consider. But, I don't have the asking price for one right now.
