Was looking at this particular Mossberg Cruiser, 12 ga., 18 1/2" barrel with pistol grip as a home defense weapon. It is a mean looking dude with the jagged doorbreak barrel. Wanted to get some opinions from this forum before I moved forward on a purchase. Liked the short barrel on this shotgun, but looking for some opinions. Is this a good choice or can someone recommend another brand of shotgun? How is the Mossberg quality compared to some other brands out there. Big thing is the short barrel. Look forward to hearing from you all.
