Ok, my OGAM date just passed (one gun a month, handgun purchase, craptastic NJ law). I'm torn between a Beretta 92fs or a Mossberg tactical shotgun for home defense. I'm liking the Mossberg for ease of use but the handgun is easier for me to keep in a bedside dresser in a lock box. Shotgun would be in the closet, ammo for both in the dresser next to the bed.
Bonus for the Mossberg is with the extra cash I can pick up a Ruger 10/22 or a decent .22 rifle for plinking. Though I'm really itching for the Beretta and I have one permit to purchase a pistol good till July 3, so no rush to buy other than I want something for the house sometime soon.
Any thoughts? I have 2 kids so everything stays locked up either way so I'm not too worried about either choice for safety sake
