I don’t have a heck of a lot of information to offer on Shotguns as I am not much of a bird hunter or skeet shooter.  I have a Mossberg 500 series for home defense and that is the only one I have listed here.  In a survival situation, some people prefer a shotgun and feel more secure with them.  My wife would rather have a 12 ga shotgun than an AR-15 for example.  So, we own one.  If I find more tasty information on shotguns in survival situations, I will put them here.

i have a mossberg 500. i highly recommend it. take the plug out and you can hold (8)2.75″ shells. notice that the magtube is the same length as the barrel! a shotgun is always a good choice for survival because it is many weapons in one depending on your ammo choice.

the advantage of the shotgun is versatility: bird shot, small critters
buck shot,defense and medium animals
slug, big game hunter
non lethal ammo
cheap a used mossberg 500 can be found for $200
more common ammo other than .22 unlike the mosin nagant
reliable and don’t take magazines
