    I half purchased it with my girlfriend in mind. Also, I did want the 12ga., but if I were to get one in that size I would have wanted a different shotgun altogether. I would have wanted the 12ga. Coastal Marine, which is another $225 that I didn't want to spend right now. I plan on making other firearm purchases come summer time. Not sure which direction I'll go then (rifle/shotgun/pistol). This is the start of my personal armory and I'm happier than a pig in shit about it:wiggle:

    I would have got the 12 regardless of my gf, make her buy her own :rofl:

    and the Coastal Marine is a huge waste of 225 more dollars. :ugh:

    The only shotgun I want an excuse to buy is a Browning or Benelli turkey gun :bowdown:

    I tend to not like shotguns, I dont know if its the noise factor or just the kick. The only one I would ever buy is the Bennelli M4 super.

    I prefer rifles over shotguns, but that's probably due to more diverse amount of calibers and what not. I hardly use shotguns, except for squirrels and rabbits, and some skeet every now and then. I want to take up turkey hunting just to have an excuse to buy a nice turkey gun :hs:

    I'll eventually own all sorts of guns. I've asked a bunch of questions to you guys in here about the 3 major kinds. I decided on the smaller gauge shotgun as my first as an easy way to get into firearms. Not many moving complicated parts on a pump shotgun, and very simple to break down and maintain. For the price of what I paid, I don't think you can beat it.

    Well...the more and more I read on the internet, the more I'm starting to second-guess my decision. I figured I had informed myself enough, but aparently not. I knew the Defender wasn't the ideal shotgun for sport/target shooting, but everyone seems to hate it! Most people consider it a piece of shit throw away gun...can't say that isn't a little dissapointing. I knew I wasn't buying the Ferreri of shotguns, but still. Oh well...I intend on taking my 18" barrel, 8 shot holding, pump shotgun and learning how to shoot with it. :dunno:
