But in the scenario in the OP, the threat a homeowner would be expecting to have to face (maybe), would be rioters and looters, not cops in body armor. If I thought they were going to light me up, I wouldn't be out on my porch, and I'd be holding my M1A, rather than a shotgun.You can't win a war (or even a local conflict), sitting in your house by yourself with a shortgun.I'd make the same choice in a close quarters scenario.People are stopped quicker by a shotgun blast than a 9 or 556.<50 yards is handgun and shotgun territory. Mossberg 500 w/8 rounds and a 45I guess you're one serious dude to take a shotgun to troops that can call all manner of arms waaaAAAy bigger Frey.....~S~If I'm outside my house, I'm armed. If I'm outside my house and there are reports of rioting within 10 miles of me, I will have a long gun, of some sort (probably a riot shotgun) with me. Yelling the phrase "Light 'em up!" and then me seeing muzzle flashes is absolutely, 100 % guaranteed to get me shooting back at you..... and I have been in dozens, if not hundreds of gunfights, and I haven't lost one yet.Ha. Actually, Freyasman nailed it right out of the gate in post #2. Of course, his statement was made in the proper context of this particular incident. These people were just sitting on their front porches in a residential environment minding their own business when the skirmishers assumed formation and fired on them.I'm surprised it took that long for the 2nd to surface here
So these guys would lose at least a couple people before it was over.
How many casualties are they willing to take before they retreat? If other people on the street begin sniping at them from windows or the side of houses, how many homes are they willing to fire into?
MOUT sucks..... and these guys are trying to learn that the hard way.
You need good weapon, good organisation and good discipline to win.
