If I only have five shots, I want 12 gauge and not 28 gauge. I also want them coming out of a gun with the control that I’d get from a full-sized shotgun. If I’m going with a revolver in this situation, I’d at least want six shots of .357 magnum. Against 20 attackers, I’m not going to miss, and I want every shot to have the knockdown power of a .357. If I’m going to use a handgun, I want high capacity. The Trayvon Martin case may drive me to buy a 9mm.
You are right with going with what you say.
“full-sized shotgun” I said such in my post. I didn’t say long guns were out.
“six shots of .357 magnum” I have one and .44 Mag. for just that reason!
A Ragin Bull in large caliber is a better option. More info here:
“There is currently no such thing as 28 gauge buckshot, but Federal and at least one other manufacturer have it in the design and testing stages and it should be available this year.”
“If Im going to use a handgun, I want high capacity.” some Raging Bulls are 8 shots
“The Trayvon Martin case may drive me to buy a 9mm”
Also a great idea. I carry a Browning Hi-Power, I like. There are also many others that carry larger magazine capacities but the cartridges you select also have great bearing on what you desire.
The above is not an argument. Info and personal observationsonly.
Stay Safe and have a Great day!
