A 10 Gauge? Not!!!! Jager, wait until you shoot one especially a double barrel or pump! Probably one might even wonder after the shot who got the worst end of it? You or the perpetrator!
I will tell you a 3 1/2 12 Ga Mag is bad enough. But for home defense certainly a standard 12 ga pump with 4/0 or BB or No. 2 shot is a better choice by far. And something about racking the slide on a pump gun telegraphs a world wide recognized sound to most all bad guys! I literally had one mess his britches (#2) when the gun was pumped on one occasion before my voice command! LOL!
It is a universal sound!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
