If seeing somebody run away makes him puke what's his reaction going to be when someone breaks in, rapes the girlfriend and then beats him about the head for a while?

All the well he gave them up. He fumbled too much when he needed to bring a weapon into action.

Great job of jerking the lib-tards around by telling them what they want to hear.

I'd bet that the writer is sitting behind a bunch or AR's and enjoying a cocktail while chuckling over how he sucker'ed them in on this ridiculous pile of fictions !

He has to worry about his "girlfriend" being raped about as much as he has to worry about his "guns" being stolen. He does not have and never had either.

IIRC, Emory is where Mchael Bellisiles was teaching when he fabricated his book "Arming America", which won him a Bancroft award... which he later had to give back, and then got fired, even from Emory.

I've always been more comfortable with keeping a handgun loaded since I can drop the mag, rack the slide and it is empty. A revolver - swing out the cylinder and dump out the ammo. Not sure why but I've always been that way.

Does anyone make a detachable-magazine-fed pump shotgun?
I make sure my 870 is unloaded - close the action - load 6 shells in the magazine tube - pull the trigger on the empty chamber - put it in the safe.

If I need it in a hurry all I need to do is pump the action - no buttons to push - no safety to mess with.

IMHO this is a fine way to store your HD shotgun -

YMMV.

Right I have no issue with that, but the author of the article had no shells in gun period. That's fine if you want to rack the thing to put one in the chamber when the time comes, but you already have the shells in the tube!

Just another example of how having a duhgree doesn't necessarily mean one is smart or even remotely intelligent. I can only hope that those kind of people get Darwinated from the planet forthwith through their own bad decision making.

Also he's from Emory Looniversity. Remember that place? It's where another anti-gun, lying PoS used to work and peddle anti-gun lies. Remember the so-called "historian" and disgraced Bancroft winner....who had his award recinded-Michael Belisilles (sp?), author of Arming America? Yeah, that bastid. He pulled a bunch of ficticious research and numbers out of his arse and passed them off as fact in his book. When in fact the records he claimed to have researched were destroyed by a natural disaster in the early 20th century. Unless he had a time machine, he couldn't have possibly "researched" them.

Clayton Cramer (a real historian and all around good guy) cracked that one open.

Maybe you should have read the story where he did that 3 times in a row. That is hardly its biggest problem.

SC Tiger was pointing out what he sees as a problem with a pump shotgun as a HD weapon.

"Originally Posted by SC Tiger

So my solution to using a shotgun as a HD weapon is to load the way I indicated in my prior post - not abandon this type of weapon.

Compromise between a fully loaded ready to fire gun - and an unloaded gun -- one that is not ready to fire - but can be made ready in the blink of an eye.

But even with shells in the tube - finding the little button to allow you to work the action could still be a problem.

The way I do it eliminates this step - and still keeps the gun stored in a low risk - no shell in the chamber state.

Good for him, he found his limitations and acted accordingly. Now he needs to quit assuming we are all bumbling idiots like himself. I've been in his situation a couple of times, hit shell stop button, rack bolt and assess threat......I DID NOT eject my shotgun shells into the puddle I just released when I pissed myself.

What is so difficult about sliding three rounds in the magazine tube and racking the action?

Am I missing something?

Yeah, if you were going to make up such a story, you would have actual life experience to back it up and make it sound plausible. The author of the article didn't have that luxury.
