Winchester Super X Pump Defender
With a matte finish and a relatively short barrel designed to throw a wide pattern of shot, the Defender is an excellent home defense option, but it can also be used with buckshot or slugs for hunting.
We mention that simply because a gun that’s well-suited to hunting and home defense is a bit of a survivalist double-whammy. Plus, you’re a heck of a lot more likely to use a hunting shotgun. Hopefully you’ll never need to use it to defend your home.
For the price, you really can’t go wrong with this Winchester model. It’s not quite as versatile as the Remington 870, though it’s slightly better suited for a home defense setting than Remington’s base model.
