Shotguns vs. Hand Guns

Auther: Detentus

I finally made it to the firing range at the sportsmans' club after months of not shooting(elder care issues.) Surprisingly I did really well. I own a S&W .22 revolver and a .22 rifle with a scope(which I did not bring.) My husband has Walther .22 pistol and a S&W .40 pistol and he always does well(former military and police).

While we were there we noticed two fellows with all kinds of weaponry including shotguns. They were nice enough to let us examine their weapons and I noticed a Mossberg shotgun. I have never fired a shotgun before and the owner would have allowed me to but he had run out of shells. He wanted to test it out as he had purchased this for his wife for home defense. I saw one at the gun dealer when we stopped in last week to get some ammunition and have been toying with the idea of finding a reasonably priced shotgun.

So, any recommendations would be helpful. Both my husband and these gentlemen explained that a .410 would be much easier to handle than a 10 or 12 gauge, especially with a pistol grip(which is what I would want.) Or, do I really need a shotgun at all? This would be used for home defense.
Any ladies here who have a shotgun? Are you comfortable with it?

What do you gentlemen recommend? Stick with what makes me comfortable or take a chance and research this more? I guess I'm just a little bit intimidated by this. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
