Besides, shorten the barrel to a point and you begin to lose range and maybe even some accuracy if done wrong...
I wouldn't be using it for home defense, I have plenty of handguns and a 12ga for that. I wouldn't be using it for hunting either,therefore range wouldn't be an issue as well. Basically I bought this rifle to build something personal to me and to use a range gun. If it stays accurate at 75-100 yards.. ill be happy. Its nothing more than a toy to me.
