LOL...nothing say’s “Go away” like the sound of a 12 gauge 00 buckshot shell being chambered.
I keep my house gun loaded with #7 1/2’s. Just as effective within ten feet as OO, and far less overpenetration.
Oh.... did I mention my house shotgun is an 18 1/2” hammer double? All the goblin will hear before the boom is two soft clicks.
