One of the problems I have with this article is the statement:

Actually just racking a pump-action shotgun might be enough to scare him away.

Getting ready to confront a home invader is not the time to chamber a round. I notice they never seem to mention doing this with any other gun. It must be something they saw in a movie.

The next thing I noticed was this:

Don't obtain a concealed-carry permit.

The goal of every person who fought for a Concealed Weapons license is a "Vermont Law". By increasing our numbers, that goal becomes closer. If this writer is so frightened about being on a list, they probably don't support any gun group.

We don't agree on much, so I though that when we did agree wholeheartedly on something I'd let you know

I agree and

If you're going to carry you ought to do it legally. It avoids all sorts of legal problems.

I have seen this work. I was walking home late one night and heard the sound of my neighbor's pump 12 being racked. Immediately a man ran out from behind his house and ran down the block faster than I am used to seeing people run. A minute later a policeman saw him running and made an arrest. The fellow was carrying a 380. A couple of years ago I was staying with my family at my father-in-law's cabin when we and the next dooe neighbors were getting harrassed by local area teenagers throwing rocks at our windows. Yelling at them and trying to confront them was not doing any good at all. Pop had a 12 guage that he had not used in years and no ammo. He dug it out and when the pests came back he pumped it while standing by the open window. A voice outside yelled OGDMF! and everything got quiet outside. There was no further trouble. That sound must reach some sort of genetic trigger.People seem to understand it even if they have never heard it before.
