The pump action shotgun has a very distinct advantageous side effect: 

The pumping of the slide is such an ominous and distinctive sound it scares the crap out of 99.99% of those that hear and understand they might be on the receiving end of a close quarters load of buckshot...

This alone makes it a fabulous choice. 

Sun Tzu:

"To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting."

Well, that's an attractive proposition, all right.

I'm trying to think beyond that to the cold hard fact that I intend to use the weapon to kill an intruder.

that was the basis of my question about lethal range, which has been well answered here. Thanks.
