help me out here folks. also whats the shortest barrell legally i can get for it?
why would you do buy an $800 shotgun and then use it for home self defense? i'd just buy a shitty 870 and put the shortest barrel i could on it for self defense.
$800 for an 1100?
dont use an 1100 for home defense
unless it's being attacked by ducks
or if someone breaks into your house and starts throwing clays at you
The 1100 came in an 18" tactical police model which was a great gun. If you wanted to modify yours for home defense, you could try and track down an 18"-20" barrel but odds are you would end up paying more for just that barrel than it would cost you to buy a Mossberg 500 or Remy 870 with 18".
save your self some time, effort and cash. and save the 1100 from a butchering. just go to a pawn shop/gun store and buy a used Remington 870, Mossberg 500, winchester 1300 or other gun intended for non-hunting purposes. i picked up a 1300 defender from a pawn shop for $175 and i don't think it had ever been fired.
if you really want to use the 1100, just get a shorter barrel for it..you dont need a folding tactical mall ninja anti zombie stock or a side saddle to carry 8 extra rounds, or a 10 round drum mag.
