Tactical Shotguns for Sale

Hinterland Outfitters offers a wide variety of dependable, high-performance tactical shotguns for sale. Our selection of tactical shotguns is always expanding, and our online inventory features some of the highest-rated firearms available today. Let's explore tactical shotguns in depth –  their history, how they differ from regular shotguns, key considerations when making a purchase, and more.

Tactical Shotguns vs Regular Shotguns: What's the Difference?

Are "tactical" shotguns really that much different than regular shotguns? Absolutely. Law enforcement and military organizations rely on tactical shotguns in critical situations – criminal apprehension, combat operations and similar scenarios – and they've also become more popular with regular citizens looking to add an extra measure of protection against home invasions.

Here's what separates tactical shotguns from typical shotguns, so you should consider these factors before you buy a tactical shotgun:

  • Butt Stock & pistol grip – Most tactical shotguns feature a shorter grip or stock than other shotguns. Stocks may feature pistol-grip-only formats, strait stocks w/ grip, adjustable stocks or just a strait stock. Most tactical shotgun stocks these days are synthetic or composite.
  • Magazine capacity – Running out of ammo is a matter of life or death for soldiers and law enforcement personnel, so tactical shotguns usually provide a larger magazine capacity. Most will hold more than 3 to 5 shots, which is the normal amount for a standard sporting or hunting shotgun. Most tactical shotguns use a tubular extended magazine to hold cartridges, which is mounted underneath the barrel. Shotguns with a barrel length of 20 inches can hold a capacity of up to 10 shots. Tactical competition shotguns with extra long extended magazine tubes can hold even more.
  • Barrel length – Generally, tactical shotguns have shorter barrels than other shotguns, typically ranging from 18” to 20” in length. For close-quarter operations, distance isn't a primary concern; accuracy is. Thus, you'll find that most tactical shotguns have a shorter profile, thanks to a truncated barrel.
  • Portability – Tactical rifles and shotguns are easier to carry and maneuver than other types of firearms. They're designed to be ready at a moment's notice. Whether it's a life or death combat operation or a Sunday afternoon shooting session at the range, no other firearm provides the go-anywhere portability of a tactical shotgun.

These are just a few characteristics that distinguish tactical firearms from other types of firearms. Many gun owners think the differences are slight, while others believe that tactical shotguns and rifles offer distinct advantages. The best way to find out is to test one for yourself at your local firing range. Tactical shotguns are more popular than ever, so finding one to test-fire shouldn't be too difficult.


History of Tactical Shotguns

The tactical shotgun's roots can be traced back to the 16th century with the invention of the blunderbuss by the Dutch. The blunderbuss was a muzzle-loading firearm with a short, large caliber barrel and flared muzzle. It was used with shot or other projectiles, adapted for military and defense use. The blunderbuss was used throughout the 18th century, and considered an early form of the tactical shotgun.

The US military would later perfect the loads used in these types of firearms using a smaller lead shot in combination with their larger bullets, a combination known as the "buck and ball.” Soldiers could appreciate this type of loading because they had a great chance of hitting the enemy. During the American Revolution, General George Washington encouraged troops to use the "buck and ball” because of the effectiveness and likelihood  of a hit compared to traditional cap and ball rifles. They would go on to be used in the Alamo and in the Civil War by Union and Confederate Forces.

The development of the repeating pump-action tactical shotgun in the 1890s led to use by US Marines and would soon be favored by civilian police units and "riot" guns. The modern concept was later fully developed during World War I by the American Expeditionary Forces.

The "Trench Gun," as it was called, was a short-barreled pump-action shotgun loaded with 6 rounds containing antimony hardened 00 buckshot and equipped with a bayonet. By World War II, both pump-action and semi-auto shotguns were being used by all branches of the US military. Today, the tactical shotgun is widely used by military and law enforcement agencies around the globe.

The combat shotgun has evolved from its original role as a short range combat weapon into a wider role in modern times. With proper configuration, ammunition and training, the modern combat shotgun plays three roles:

  • Offensive Weapon
  • Breaching System
  • Less Lethal Crowd Control

Most experts will agree that the tactical shotgun is the best firearm for home defense when compared to a pistol and rifle. This theory is based on the fact that it's harder to miss an intended target with a tactical shotgun since they create a "pattern” of shot, rather than a single hole. At close quarters, even #6 or #7 shot loads will stop or disable an attacker, and 00 or 000 buckshot will fire the near equivalent of six to eight .380 pistol rounds, all delivered within a baseball sized pattern.
Just as important as pellet spread is the shotgun's accuracy and control.

Tactical shotguns, like any long gun, also gives us a much longer sight radius (the distance between the rear sight and the front sight), aiding in accuracy. Depending on the shot size and load type, most shotguns have less felt recoil and muzzle rise, which allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots. Effective range of the tactical shotgun with standard buckshot is around 30-50 meters with a full rifle stock and around 10 meters when equipped with a pistol grip only. Tactical shotguns shooting slug rounds have a extended effective range of up to 100 meters; with that being said, the range also depends on the stock type and shotgun sights.

If you are currently looking to upgrade an existing shotgun or looking to purchase your first tactical shotgun, we recommend that you upgrade the sights to a ghost ring rear sight and a TruGlo front sight.  Many modern tactical shotguns for sale will also feature a picatinny rail on the receiver, which will allow you to add a red dot scope for easier point shooting, giving you the ability to look at the target, not the front sight.


Tactical Shotgun Types

Pump-Action Tactical Shotguns

Today the pump-action tactical shotgun still remains the most popular and common shotgun for tactical applications. A pump-action shotgun requires the shooter to manually operate the action by pulling the forearm back toward the shooter. The rearward motion releases a shell from the tube magazine, which is located inside of the forearm. Shoving the forearm forward pushes a shell into the chamber and locks the chamber for firing. After you shoot, pulling the slide back pulls the empty shell from the chamber and the process starts all over again.

They are more mechanically reliable, highly customizable, and are the most economical compared to most other firearms. The pump-action also has the unforgettable menacing sound of the pump cycling the shotgun, which some believe can prevent or scare a would-be threat than actually firing the shotgun. Whether this is true or not, there is no question that the sound is universally recognized and feared. Just like a revolver, the pump-action tactical shotgun is simplistic and reliable, making it the first choice for many customers. It's the most practical and versatile option for the majority of tactical applications.

  • Pros      
    • Inexpensive
    • Simplistic and reliable, with fewer moving parts
    • Highly customizable
    • Works well with most types of ammo
  • Cons
    • Easy to "short stroke” the pump and causing it to jam, especially under stress
    • More felt recoil
    • Slower rate of fire compared to semi-automatics

Most tactical pump-action shotguns for sale will range from $200-$700. The Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 are by far the most popular, best-selling tactical pump-action shotguns on the market. Both models offer numerous variations and features to fit the needs and requirements for any application.

Semi-Automatic Tactical Shotguns

The semi-automatic shotgun is arguably the most lethal when compared to a pump-action shotgun, capable of putting the most lead down range as quickly as possible. Tactical semi-automatic shotguns don't require the shooter to manually pump the action allowing for quicker follow-up shots and no chance of a "Short Stroke”.  Semi-automatic shotguns are favored by law enforcement, military, home defense and competitive shooters around the world. Semi-automatic tactical shotguns fire with each pull of the trigger, and the operating system uses the energy from the shot to cycle the gun. There are two popular semi-auto operating systems—gas and inertia.

Gas Operated Semi-Automatic Shotguns

Gas operated shotguns have been the standard for semi-autos for over 50 years now. The main benefit of the gas-operated shotgun is the ability to reliably fire a wide range of shotgun shells. Gas operated guns have the benefit of regulating gas pressure somewhat in order to keep the gun functioning reliably without causing excess recoil or stress on the gun. For this reason, recoil-sensitive or high-volume shooters tend to lean toward gas semi-automatic tactical shotguns. Shooters who like using heavy magnum loads may want to consider one as well. Gas systems can be found in Remington, Winchester, Mossberg, Weatherby and FN shotguns.

Inertia Operated Semi-Automatic Shotguns

Inertia operation involves a bolt carrier and inertia spring that are not rigidly fixed to the rest of the gun. When the gun is fired, the recoil pushes the gun backwards against the inertia spring and bolt carrier that are effectively floating in space inside the receiver. Inertia shotguns have less moving parts, which usually makes them thinner and less bulky than gas shotguns. They also stay very clean, even with hundreds of rounds being shot out of them. Inertia tactical shotguns will often have more felt recoil, which can cause shooting fatigue for high-volume shooters. They also can be selective on the type of shotgun loads that can be used, especially lighter loads.

  • Pros
    • More lethal due to quick shooting capability
    • No need to manually work an action
    • Less felt recoil
  • Cons
    • Not as reliable with certain types of ammo
    • More expensive

Since semi-auto shotguns have more moving parts, they are also more expensive than pump-action shotguns. Most tactical semi-automatic shotguns for sale will range from $600-$1500. Inertia systems can be found in Benelli, Franchi, Beretta and Stoeger shotguns, with the Remington 1100, Mossberg 590, FN SLP and Benelli M4 shotguns all being very popular among shooters.
