MadMax 0 Posted December 29, 2006 Report Share Posted December 29, 2006 I was posting on another gun forum in a thread where the poster was asking for input on what kind of shotgun to get for home defense. Naturally I mentioned a Saiga-12 with 10 round magazines. One guy replied that 10 rounds was too much - "if 5 or 6 rounds of 00 buck doesn't stop the threat..." and all that. It seems funny to me that other gun people will look at 10 rounds of 12 gauge and say it's too much but 30 rounds of 5.56, 7.62X39 or 20 rounds of .308 is OK. If this reaction isn't coming from either ignorance or "firepower envy" I don't know what it is. The way I see it my Saiga-12 with a couple extra 10 round mags is probably a better in-house weapon than my class-3 MAC-10 in 45 ACP. Round for round it has a lot more power and even with the 3-to-1 ammo advantage the better control of round placement of the semi-auto just makes for a better gun up close. In the few cases where I had to draw a weapon and face criminals in the act I found that the nastier the weapon I drew the quicker they went into "cease and desist" mode.
