OK, so technically we’re not supposed to call these shotguns. They’re non-NFA “pistol grip firearms.” Fine. None of that changes the fact that firearms like Remington’s short barrel 870 TAC-14 and Mossberg’s Shockwave have become plenty popular as compact, powerful home defense and truck gun options.
But those smoothbores are pumps. Remington’s latest is the V3 TAC-13 semi-auto featuring their ultra-reliable, recoil-absorbing Versaport gas system. That should make shooting the 12 gauge TAC-13 — whether it’s birdshot or buckshot — a lot more pleasant.
