Home defense shotgun- breakopen or pump?
Complete gun noob here, but me and my wife are researching shotguns for the house. A friend's dad is a retired cop of 30 years, and he recommended a break-action shotgun for the following reasons:
-They tend to be shorter due to the lack of the pump mechanism, and therefore easier to handle indoors
-Easier to load/check if loaded
-Less moving bits
Gun bullies, what's been your experience with break-action guns, and what can you recommend? I haven't got my heart set on one, I'm just looking for more information before I drop the money on anything.
