DIY ya big wuss!!!
I actually have this gun:Hey all,
I'd like to pick up a cheapo double barrel shotgun, either side by side or O/U, it doesn't matter much. One thing I would want is to have ejectors on it.
I want to cut back the barrels to about 20 inches and use it for home defense. In fact I want to gift it to my sister so she can use it for that purpose. That is a better choice for her as she is not going to go to the range to learn a pump or semi auto. A double is better than a single too. That's how I came to the choice of a double barrel. In case you were wondering.
So, can you all give me some brands and models to look for? I'm gonna browse the gun sales sites for used stuff and there's a good gun show here in the Houston area about every 2 or 3 months and I'll hit that the next time it comes if I am not able to find one before.
That was my initial thought too. If she is "not going to go to the range to learn a pump or semi auto." then there's no way in hell I'd trust her with a gun.If she is not willing to go to the range and practice she has no business with a gun in her house, second amendment or not.
That's a good point.While I agree that training and instruction are very important, there do seem to be more than a few stories of someone using a gun without firing it to protect themselves or family members. And my guess is there are at least as many gun owners who have had no formal instruction other than what they got in a store with a purchase or a couple hours in a permit class as there are who have had a full day's worth of instruction.
