There is nothing in the 2nd Amendment that states what particular firearm we must use for our personal self defense. Many politicians attempt to dictate their unreasonable opinions, but we need not listen. Therefore, we have the right to choose whatever firearm we feel will best suit our self defense needs.
Three years ago, Remington and Mossberg developed short, pump action firearms chambered in 12 and 20 gauge. These are not shotguns. A shotgun uses a shoulder stock therefore they are classified as “firearms” that uses a shotgun load. They were developed to be shorter, lighter and just as powerful. These “shot load” firearms literally took the gun world by storm. Since then, many people have decided that a 12 or 20 gauge firearm would be an excellent home defense firearm.
Remington took the same pump action concept and created a 26.5” semi auto version called the Remington V3 Tac-13. It uses a magazine tube that houses five 12 gauge (2 ¾ or 3”) shot shells. Adding one round in the chamber, the V3 Tac-13 has a six round capacity. It also uses a birdshead pistol grip, a forend hand strap, a lightweight aluminum receiver and a 13” contour vent ribbed barrel. They included their VersaPort gas system that will feed anything from light target rounds to heavy buckshot loads. Also, 12 gauge slugs are no problem for the V3 Tac-13. Remington added their patent VersaPort gas system to reduce felt recoil and increase reliability. Based on my experiences with the V3 Tac-13, Remington accomplished that goal quite well.
In the video attached, I explained and demonstrated why I felt the Remington V3 Tac-13 is a great “Home Defense” choice. Check out the video and let us know what your thoughts are on the V3 Tac-13 or anything else you feel would be a solid home defense firearm.
