Shotgun Search
 
I would like to purchase a shotgun, just unsure about what I would like.

I am thinking 8 Gauge. What are your thoughts? Good home defense choice.

Even if you can't find ammo, it should make an excellent club.

I don't think a 8 gauge will pack enough punch.

This will suffix though....

:D

Bro- you need to go do some studying. The 8 g has not been made in the US in a LONG time. It is not legal for hunting anywhere in the US. The ammo is a collectors item, and is a black powder load.

But the cloud of powder smoke would probably choke an intruder to death, so it might work.

Um.... What are we using this for? T-Rex?

What are the rules of buying abroad? I suppose I will have to make my own shells. I can get shells here:8 Gauge Shotshell
:D;)
Wasn't going to hunt with it, It was going to be for Barn defense.;):D

Would suggest you use the Soviet .61 Cal, belt fed heavy MG.





As long as yer shopping abroad. Barn rats can be tough.



But I DO have this brass 3 pounder. With a double cannister load, it might work.



:p

I figure all I need is:

A few other things from a Home Improvement store and I am ready to defend the Barn.

Looks good to me, Shi. Please make a U tube video of your first 3 rounds.;) ps. Before firing set down a beer, wink at the camera and say, "Watch this".
