There exists a Bewildering Array of shotguns available. I did some looking at manufacturer sites, but didn't see anything that attracted my fancy. I know that there are folks here on the Forum that use/carry a shootgun for bothersome bears.
What is the best Pump, or Auto, shotgun/slug gun for Bear Defense, IYO, what you decided on yourself?
Is Mossberg the only Brand that has the Safety on the Tang? (This is something I like.)
What length barrel is needed, for such an endeavor? (I don't like Pistol Grips, Porting, any kind of tactical lookin stuff on the muzzle.)
(I envision a rather short barrel, with a vented rib, on top, and Iron sights that are adjustable.)
(I assume, I'm talking about a Rifled Barrel, that is designed to shoot SaBots.)
I would want a SLING.
What's out there to fill that bill? Am I trying to fill the wrong bill?
