re: #409 Locker

I’ve seen that but I train myself, wife and daughter on the pump. I’m a good shot but sleepy, in the dark or for the ladies I chose the higher odds on a hit. Additionally (and it may be over-stated) I enjoy the deterrent factor in the sound of a shell being loaded into a pump shotgun. Personally, if I heard that and I wasn’t wearing body armor, I’d run.

Those are good counter-arguments, plus there’s the small motor skills vs. gross motor skills under stress thing, in favor of the shotgun.

Arguments on both sides…

And then there’s synthesis; you have the handgun to fight your way to the shotgun.
