(Gulp) I have to agree with hockalugi on THIS one. A broom makes an awful weapon.

Same here dalefan88. I've taken more practice and training with the Baretta 92fs and, the 15 round mags. give an advantage over my other firearms.

I like the one that is real close no matter what it is or what caliber.

Default Jail Time

I guess you people do not understand . when you live in Canada .your firearms have to be locked up in gun safe along with any ammo. So if a intruder breaks in my home .We are not allowed to defined are self with a gun .and if we do have time to unlock are guns and unlock are Ammo .guess who is going to jail and by the way if the intruder is dealt with to much force he can also sue you and you got it he will win . so if you can not coax him out the door with the broom . you might as well help him carry out any thing that he wants to take.

I heard a ruckus on the front porch last night. Walked out on the balcony and fired two shots into the air. Didn't see anything. Fired two more shots into the air. Saw nothing. Ran downstairs and flung the door open. It was just the cat. Thank God, I was all out of arrows.

Keeps the raiding squirrels down



Edit to add.
I'm sure that home building a bow will be banned soon, now that I've posted the pictures.

My go-to is my Springer MC Operator with Hornady Critical Defense 230 grain JHP. It's like AMEX.
