similar to CigarMonkel's thread, but slightly different.
I've been wanting a gun for quite some time, but never actually went through with it.
at some point in the future, i would like several, but for right now I just want something mainly for home protection, and possibly target/fun shooting out in the country. I won't be hunting.
What I have been considering are a Mossberg 500 special purpose shotgun (such as the 500 persuader or cruiser), or a Glock.
I havent decided on caliber... maybe .45 auto.
for shotgun leaning towards 12 gauge, but 20 may be an option being the woman of the house may have to use it if i'm not here.
I will only be getting one of these two for now, but what do you guys think as to what would best suit my situation: which gun, and what model/round size for the gun?
also is there much difference in a shotgun with or without the stock?
