3. with a handgun, i can take it to the range and have some fun shooting targets/practicing
it seems that i will have to have both.....
am I making sense?
Some sense However-a 18 inch barrel on a mossberg 12 gauge- use low recoil law enforcement loads -Chicago has some nasty gun laws on excesive force- use Rubber bullets. Make sure it is a PUMP shotgun (they don't jam).
You hit a dude with two rounds of 12 gauge rubber riot rounds well he ain't getting up for a bit.
I would keep a couple of 00 buck and a slug round or two in my pocket (these rounds can be purchased where they won't go THRU the bad guy and into a family member on the other side of the wall)
Besides the Klack Klack of a 12 gauge is rather scary to a bad guy.
Oh If Ill allows it pull the 3rd limiter from the loading tube this gives you 5 rounds.
