The Joe Biden Tactical Defense Shotgun

I may be a bit late to this party, but I was very surprised/interested to see a review (in the March 2014 issue of Shooting Times magazine) of the Stoeger Double Defense Over/Under 12 gauge shotgun. I was surprised because I didn’t know that Joe Biden’s ideas for home defense — “If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun” — had gotten the attention of the gun industry.

According to the editor of Shooting Times, “The old double gun served well as a home-defense tool on the prairies of the old frontier, and I see no reason why it can’t do so today.”

Here’s a video by Stoeger promoting the old double gun:
