You can simply flick the safety on and then off and the second trigger is good to go for dry fire. You shouldn’t be dry-firing that without snap caps.

Is 28 gauge shotgun good for home defense?

I would skip 16-gauges and 28-gauges, because their recoil-to-energy ratios are so close to that of the 12-gauge and the 20-gauge, respectively, that it’s not worth the scarcity of gun options and loads for them. Ammo for them is also expensive. If a 28- or 16-gauge is all you have, however, it’ll certainly do the job.

Is a 28 gauge good for pheasant hunting?

The 28 works just fine on tight-holding wild birds as well as the pen-raised birds you’ll find on many hunting preserves, but you’ll likely want to step up in gauge when birds are flushing wild or far ahead, as often happens with late-season pheasants.
