Thought I would throw this out for some pointers. I am looking to get a short barrel for either a pump that I have or a semi. The primary use would be home defense. I am looking at the pros and cons for each. Feel free to post your opinions/experience. THANKS

pump is more reliable in general depends on what semi you have, the Benelli m4 is one that is very dependable but expensive

Also the psychological impact of the 'shick-shick' sound on a pump when you rack one into the chamber ..

One of the most universal sounds, the shucking of a pump. Anyone that hears that and keeps coming deserves to get shot.

It's also a great way to give your position away.
So you are just gonna waylay somebody that's in your house?
what if it was someone who was in an accident, was out of it and needed help and you just happen to have left your front door unlocked? Good way to be BFF's with Bubba is more like it. "I am armed". Get out or I will defend myself". Maybe try that insted of "Boom goes the dynamite"???

Please show me where I said I would "waylay" the intruder?
Maybe you should read more closely.

And by the way, I never leave my door unlocked.

Keep on racking,

No one said waylay anyone, but if they hear sound of pump and don't reply I would assume they mean nothing good!

If ya got a pump your good to go. I keep some #4 buckshot handy. In a 3" mag thats 41 .24 cal pellets per shell. I also realize that if it came down to it this is meant to kill. I can't imagine someone living thru a blast of this from the knees up.

You would be better off with birddhot for in the house. Buck can go through walls and hit unintended targets.

2 sounds you hear that you don't have to see them to know what they are,hizzing sound of a rattler and the action of a pump gun.
