This brings up a question I had... strictly as a home defense weapon, would you really need that many rounds vs. say 8 or 9 rounds? I know you can never have too much ammo when you need it, but in a practical sense is it actually "needed?"The only possible scenario where I might see an advantage would be clearing a building. Even then, I'm not convinced that I nee the extra ammunition. If I have to clear a building. I believe I'd firebomb it.
I'll pass on Kel-Tec's newest.
Pretty much what Unalist said below. And, after owning one of their SUB2000 carbines that took Glock mags I could do better and do it more reliably with any of my Glock pistols.What do you like about the 870 over the Kel-Tec?
The reason I personally would choose an 870 over the Kal Tec is because the 870 has a 60 year track record of sporting and combat from Remington. This means that spare parts, accesories, smithing knowledge, hunting and tactical experince with it are everywhere. http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/usa/remington-70-e.html
The Kel Tec Dual Tube is a nice concept. After looking at the info it would be nice to have 14+1 rounds in a bullpup design and be able to switch from one tube or the other. I took notice you can fire and feed it but that's the same with both.
Granted the 870 was new once upon a time too and if I was there then I would be recommending the Whinchster 1897 as having the proven track record over the newcomer too.
