We again have dog problems. 2 of the neighbors had their dogs attacked by dog on the loose. So I would like a functional gun to throw in the back of the truck, or lean up against the front door. I thought one of the cheap break action handi-rifles was going to be perfect. But it seems they have a lot of problems. I looked at getting rifle barrel and stock for my Contender frame, but it seems a new rifle would be cheaper. Any suggestions?
