At A Glance: Pump Action Shotguns
Pump action shotguns make for an excellent, reliable firearm for home defense. Also called slide-action shotguns, pump shotguns require the user to manually reload by pulling the forearm back in between each shot. This releases a shell from the tube magazine into the shotgun, and then returning the forearm to its position locks the shell into place. Pump action shotguns remain popular thanks to their simple design: this makes it easy to operate, and the small number of parts makes it highly reliable. It also means pump action shotguns are relatively light, and they are less expensive than their semi automatic counterparts. Be prepared for a stronger recoil with a pump action shotgun, and of course remember that you will need to operate the slide in between each shot - you will need to keep the presence of mind to do this even during a home defense emergency.
