Yep...they’re not ALL fruity. And thweet.
They most regularly happen at night when a loaded shotgun next to a bed would be just as convenient as a handgun.
This absurd idea that a shotgun is the one size fits all solution
Who the hell is making that assertion? The lady in question seems to be incapable of competently shooting a .38 revolver. I would suggest she try a small 20 gauge shotgun which a petite 60ish female should have little trouble handling with some training/practice.
PS Squeezing the trigger is much more effective than "pulling" it.
One more word of advice. Springs are available for anything. Don’t cut them yourself. Stay Safe
The blunderbuss was the automatic weapon of its day -It could kill lotsa people at close range with one shot.
"By the middle 19th century, the blunderbuss was considered obsolete and was replaced in military use by the carbine Though the latter was considered by some to be a poor replacement, and the blunderbuss still found use with civilians as a defensive firearm." wiki
Not if you fire the same number of shots from your shotgun.
Any Granny can handle a 410 loaded with buckshot over a .38 air weight
and 5, 30 cal balls coming at 1100 fps beats a .38 any day
Too petite for a shotgun, I would guess... and especially a sawed off, which is about the best thing in the small confines of a house... swinging a full sized shotgun around might be troublesome. Better have her try them out before committing in that direction.
Keep the .38, and get her a big dog.
Up haer we ben usin shotgun RockSally on them revenooers since 1920`s-
Ya gittin too close LOL
Got it all figured out how you’re going to hold/swing it so it isn’t taken from you?
Aren't most bees vegetarian? Just checking...
Seriously, I think the shotgun is the best up close personal protection home defense.
Hand guns are for when you cant carry a shotgun, and rifles are for long distance.
See yall later.
Circuit Judge. .410 easily handling. just pull trigger for 5 shots.
Have you seen the Breath Of The Dragon 12ga. shotgun rounds?
Next to your firearm should be your body armor. Used vests are cheap on eBay and www.bulletproofme.com .
When you pick up one, you pick up the other. Gives you an edge. Everyone needs an edge in a fight.
Disorienting strobe lights aren’t bad, either. If you are hardcore, then don a gas mask and pepperspray bomb your house.
Always be looking for an edge.
That’s why you need a sling and a light mount for your shotgun.
And forget that crap about scaring them off by racking a round into the chamber. If the bad guy is in your house, he needs to be ventilated.
Smart aleck. Go to bed. Now.
Oh we call that an equalizer.
Problem with those is you better land on the first swing or the weight will roll you around LOL
