Who doesn’t want a suppressed shotgun for home defense duty? Why would anyone risk permanent hearing loss and tactically-inadvisable muzzle flash blindness during a defensive gun use if they didn’t have to? Because money; this superb Iron Goat Guns “reflex design” suppressor will run you a grand, plus gun. Because weight; unless you commission a credit card-melting titanium version, the Mossberg 500’s six-pound snout makes the 12 gauge a tad nose heavy. Because paperwork; the ATF is currently in a race to see what’s faster: continental drift or a processed NFA application. Because pump action; I’m not so sure I’d trust the action to cycle on a semi, especially if we’re talking home defense. Other than that, my Benelli Super Nova’s about to get a nose job. Eventually.
