Why you would want to use slugs at all for a home defense shotgun though is beyond me, the point of a shotgun is a spread of shot.

But I hear you. I recently had to diagnose a problem with a guys 870 at work, he said it was wildly inaccurate. I boresighted it, and he asked me to shoot it. Pulled a group fine, but my shoulder hated me after putting some 300gr Hornady SST's down range.
the slugs are just for going to the range because well... i like shooting stuff i have the regal low recoil buckshot and military grade 00 buck that sits in it while it's laying around the house... i grew up using my dads mossberg 500 but i'm open to the idea that i should be shouldering it wrong now that it has the new butt stock on it.
