Double Barrel Shotgun vs. AR-15

 Hickok45 writes: "The suggestion to just get a double barrel shotgun for home defense deserves some discussion and demonstration, I believe, particularly since it's promoted in the context of being so much better than an AR 15. Let just take a look at how they might stack up. The double barrel shotgun is a Stoeger 12 gauge Coach Gun, one I've used extensively in cowboy matches. The AR15 is my Colt M4 Carbine."
It's always a treat to watch Hickok on his firing range. As he demonstrates today, the AR-15 is his weapon of choice for home defense. It has low recoil and is very easy to shoot well.
