What do you guys recommend for a "relatively inexpensive", yet rock solid reliable shotgun for home defense. Be specific (gauge, barrel length & model#) please?

Thanks! :D

This is what I use, a 590A1 with 18.5"bbl, these were Fed overruns and offered to departments while I was an LEO for individual purchase. They come with Accu-choke barrels and GR sights.

this is old school

We used to have an old Hardware store in town, and the owner was a class III dealer, of course at my young age I didn't know anything about that, but always stopped in there every time I rode my bike to town to look at his window display. He had one of those in there along with a Browning Air cooled machinegun, and other nice toys. This was in the early 60's, and a very small quiet southern town, where you could leavee your door's unlocked, and everyone knew everyone. That old hardware store is now some posh little coffeshop, even the old barbershop is gone. I miss my old town, and wish I could have it back!
I sure do, my dad started me off with Gun Digest when I was 7yrs old (1966), and I've gotten them every year since. So I've got a fairly large collection. Plus I've gotten other gun books to expand my knowledge of firearms.
