A fully loaded pump ,racked inside the home will send any sane criminal looking for a way out don't waste ammo, the rack of a pump shotgun is a universally known sound that should strike fear into most, that being said his BS about an AR being harder to aim and use is so far off base it's not even a good joke .That's cause old Joe is too frail to hold on to a weapon with such a kick. And I've heard the rack before, it gets you gone!
~~When I worked retail sptg good and a little lady /female would come in and want to by a hand gun, then pick it up like it was gonna bite her. I usually recomended a friend who did training before buying or the other choice was a 20 ga shotgun,I'd pull one off the rack and rack the slide and all heads turned. I let her see the reaction. I told her anyone not totally smaked out on dope trying to kick in her door that hears that sound will make track unless they have a death wish.It was a firearm she could use with minimal training and was not afraid of it due to media hype in handguns . You all know if ya have one in your home it will kill ya ?? didn't ya know that??
