Call me old fashioned and nostalgic, but I still think short, side-by-side 12 Gauge Coach Guns are Cool as the other side of my pillow.
Now this is not to say that I think they are COOLER than a Pump 12 like a Remington 870 or Mossberg 590, but they are right up there!
Why? Like all shotty’s, they can handle all manner of threats: 2 legged, 4 legged or no legs at all (snakes) but they are compact and fast!
And before you start talking about ammo capacity, take it from me: If 2 rounds of 00 or #4 Buck Does not solve your problem, you seriously need to think about something belt fed because buddy, YOU GOT SERIOUS FUCKING ISSUES!😄
The best gun for the money from this list IMO is the Stoeger.
FYI: I could give a shit about exposed hammers. I am not a cowboy shooter, I am just a cowboy who occasionally needs to shoot things.
SEVEN STEALTHY TOOLS FOR SELF-DEFENSE IN NON-PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENTS
We live in a hyper-security conscious world for the most part. Metal detectors and body scanners are popping up everywhere now, even in the most unlikely of places. Combine this with traveling overseas to countries where personal weapons are strictly forbidden and illegal and the armed civilian needs to have a SOLID plan for these types of scenarios so he does not find himself with just his johnson in his hand when the shit goes down.
I highly recommend Ed Calderon’s Site, Ed’s Manifesto for further reading on this subject.
