Default AK-47 vs Mossberg 500 intimidation

What would y'all think would be the better deterrent for trespassers?

Shotgun makes for a better home protection weapon IMHO. As for intimidating? Most anything that goes bang would get my attention if I was a break in type of guy.

Neither if you pull it out your going to jail. So me I would say invest in a big dog preferably a GSD or other type of working dog.

Cut your grass with a push mower wearing a banana hammock backwards. That might deter them. But, the Shepherd idea might be better. That and motion detection flood lights. Not sure if I would want to let my whole neighborhood of trespassers know I just bought a new gun for them to steal while I'm at work, ya know?

Simple tresspassing does not warrant brandishing a firearm Unless that is trespassing in the home. If they are out side call the cops.

Might not go to jail but it sure will bring a lot of unwanted attention to him in the neighborhood.

brandishing a firearm to "deter" people is illegal in most states. firearms are pulled and used if life is in danger. presenting a fire arm to scare people is bad mojo.

if someone trying to take a life stops the action when you pull a weapon and do not fire that is one thing. pulling a gun cuz a jehovah's witnes wont leave your doorstep is another.
