    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....

    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.

    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

    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:
    [​IMG]For Barrel
    [​IMG]To build Stock and fore grip.
    [​IMG]Hold Barrel to stock
    [​IMG]Firing pin

    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".

    lemme see- cube root of 1501.336 divided by about 7206............ hmmmm- I'm trying to get a cube root of a fractional number. I think the gauge is about 0.04. NOT 4 guage- .04 guage.

    But a Beehive round does better- about 6000 each 4 penny finishing nails....


    Say- what the BLEEP are you trying to protect that barn against? Mothra?

    No need to set the beer down, he can add a cup holder in place of a side saddle...
