back to the original OP... my 870 stays "cruiser ready" as they call it. Full tube, off safe with hammer tripped on an empty chamber. All you gotta do is pick it up and rack it.

+1 both Linda and I keep ours in cruiser ready status also. I would rather have the BG's pants sucked up into his starfish but the double cha-chink and watch him run/waddle like a penguin then have to kill him.

a LEO friend told me that sound a pump makes tells the bad guy exatctly where you are and what you have and he may decide to unload through the wall to make sure he gets away
i keep a wheel gun at the bed if a BG continues into my place after the alarm goes off with dogs barking i know to be scared for my life i'm going to shoot him after the first shot in a small room we are both deaf so sound don't matter

If they're all up in the crib, my idea of 'Fair Warning" is muzzle flash. But that's just me.

The real science behind this is not the poopy pants inducing sound. It is the fact that as your heart rate climbs (from adrenaline or exertion), you can easily manipulate the pump action because it uses large muscle groups and gross motor skills. Manipulating a safety button is a fine motor skill that may be lost in such a situation.

Try running a half mile and then threading a needle. It does not work 99% of the time. Fine motor skills and complex motor skills go away when you most need them. Techniques and tactics should rely on gross motor skills that do not seem to be reduced with stress.

This is the most intelligent response to any question I've ever seen posted on any subject here ever.

Plus it sounds really cool.

+1 Robo!

HD sound here:

BOOM!!! Sucking chest wound.

In that order. And both of short duration.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The action working on any shotgun is a universal language of GET THE F*** OUT! Everyone understands it and after that sound, if they STILL persist, they will quickly give up after pounding 3" mags of 000Buck into them. I also guarantee any friends who may be around will quickly cut and run.
Of course, as I am working the shotgun, by then the wife has her DPMS Dissipator shouldered in the kids room with them at her back and a 30 rounder full of 68gr SP (for good expansion).
Where we are at, nothing would ever happen but I am not willing to bet my childrens life on that.

Ok. Rant over. Back to tea and crumpets.
A-muckin-Fen.


An unloaded self defense weapon might as well be a stick.

Cause its not worth a **** for anything.
