Dr. Feelgood Mk-2
http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd369/Pfletch83/DRFGMK2.jpg

Both are .410 defensive shotguns.

The MK-1 came from the factory with a wood stock set while handier with the short 18.5 inch tube,it still lacked a bit,for starters the L.O.P. on the wood stock was a tad long for intended uses,and because of the wood stock set the weight was 6-1/4 pounds.

The MK-2 solves the problems of the MK-1,the factory pistol grip was removed from the 50455, a 13.5-inch L.O.P. synthetic stock was installed (which keeps the weight at 5.5 pounds) and a sling was added for easier carry.

All that's really missing now is a good light and a buttstock ammo carrier.

I'm thinking about a Remington 1100 defensive build (But thats farther down the road,yeah they cost a pretty hefty chunk of change) for a semi-auto .410.

The weight would be more but it should still work (Gas system instead of recoil based)

Something I've just started thinking about....

I was able to pick up some Federal #4 Buckshot the other day.

I'm planning on using that load as an in the home defensive round while the '000' would be better for "yard work".

The 3-inch shells hold 9 each.

From what I've seen online #4 buck has been called little better than birdshot,upon looking at the pellets first hand I would beg to differ,the load in question should do very well for the close quarters work encountered in a defensive situation.

I'll be posting pics of the test targets A.S.A.P.

why .410 and not 12ga or even 20ga?

Because the .410 is perfect for close range work (with the right ammo).

The 12 and 20 are best used for other jobs outside the house where the larger payloads will be more useful.

Thanks.

The MK-1 is pretty nice,I'm thinking about installing a sling swivel on the stock so I can use it as a BBQ showpiece (one of the other reasons I've went with the MK-2 as a carry gun,didn't want that wood stock to get beat up)

I'm planning on picking up another 50455 so I can have spare parts for the other two guns and I'll have another barrel for the MK-1. or I could put an order in for a .410 hs and put the "Spreader" choke barrel on the PG (MK-3) and make another MK-2 with the 50455's barrel on the HS.

Still dont understand using 410 for home....you breing ganged up on by quail?
If you or family or being life threatened r great bodily injury i just dont see using a small shell as making sense.

Unless larger is too heavy for you
And no i would not want to get shot by a 410 -

Wasn't going to say that at all friend.

Why do you doubt that a .410 pump with '000' buck can get the job done just as well as a 20 or 12 gauge?

Remember with the bigger gauges you have more recoil to deal with,not so much with the smaller gun.

The Larger gauges would be more of a use outside because the larger payloads would be needed to ensure a good hit.

The smaller load of shot thrown by the .410 means that there will be less overall structural damage to your house (also lessening the chances of bystanders getting hit by pellets that either missed or slammed through the threat) in the event that said firepower is needed.

It's more firepower than a handgun and faster/easier to hit with than a rifle or carbine at close distances.

Feet per sec is the same in most shells 12/20/28/410 just less payload.Nice pair

I dont get your outside/inside idea. Your talking about defending life inside your home. So if you have to defend your life on your patio you will grab diff gun!? If you are shooting at such a distance you need diff guage-.?That means there is no longer an immediate threat. Arevyou in a running rifle battle? I have not read about these long distance "home defense" shoots.

The distance in the vast majority in homes is under 20 feet. Id rather have more pelets then less
Less damage to home!?.? Are you seriuos? That is the last thing you should even think about...you just killed a human...think about the law issues you will be dealing with and your own mental situation

Paint and drywall are cheap
Bystanders? Uhhhh you are using a shotgun. It might be time to grab your sniper rifle if you are dealing with hostages:-)
The idea of folow up shots and kick?.i go back to your home, one shot should be enough in your hallway or bedroom if not you should be easily capable of letting another round loose. Unless you live in a walmart size home---- look at your home and the spaces involved...very tiny especially when using a scatter gun
You imply uou have time and a clear enough mind to choose weapons. You wont.

Please keep in mind that in no way am i implying a 410 wont work. It absolutely will. But to imply its better then using a 12 gu you are wrong.

Well since I have no idea what a 12 gu is I'm going to have to say that the .410 will work better....because it exsists on this side of reality.

Now if you mean a 12 gauge is better that's a different story,and I'll agree as far as payload,but it will have more than is needed for a close range defensive encounter.
