With me being an LEO and the past armorer for my dept. I think I may be a bit better judge of the quality of a firearm than a 13 y/o kid. I have shot it enough to know that it is reliable and pattern's well with my chosen load's.

Since I run 2 3/4" shells in it. That makes it a 5+1. You shoot what you want but don't knock what other's use.

My arrangement is pretty secure. If you want it bad enough, bring a fork lift. The safes are UL listed for cash and jewelry, and push the scale at over five thousand pounds, each, empty. On top of that, UL monitoring 24/7 by a good security firm.

I am also on a very very busy street where cops hang out, and donuts and coffee are sold on my corner. They are staying put I would guess. My only fear would be a Katrina event where my gov knocks on the door, and wants to collect my belongs.

My husband has. Someone didn't know he was home and pulled the screen back to try and get in and hubby pulled the curtain back and stuck a shotgun in his face. Surprise dummy...picked the wrong one, cops cought him. Made me a believer.

I keep my old Remington 1100 in the closet for just those type situations, when someone wants in that shouldn't be......come on in, I'd kinda like to see what some buckshot would do to a body at that distance.
