Went to Dick's today and saw a New England Firearms Pardner Pump 12 gauge with synthetic stock for $169 (reg price). Does anyone have one of these shotguns? Good buy for home defense or am I better off getting a Maverick, Mossberg 500, Rem. 870 or other? The reviews I've read online seem to be like Hipoint reviews, people who own them don't have complaints but others seem to think they are cheap pieces of s***. Where have I head that before? ; ) Any help would be greatly appreciated since this will be my first scattergun purchase.
