    If I am a scared woman with a gun, I want the bad guy to be afraid to face me. ;)

    A woman shooter should use a Machine Gun...this way she has to pull the trigger only once.

    I didn't keep a gun around when the kids were home because as teens....they were way too curious. But now that I live alone in a city that has plenty of crime, I do keep a pistol. My oldest son told me if someone broke in, get on the floor on the far side of the bed. When the bedroom door opens, shoot in that direction until you hear a thud. LOL.

    My son never knew that I had a handgun. When I was packing up to move from California to Texas, when he was twenty, he was surprised to learn that I had it.

    I’m sure it was about 4 years ago that Joe Biden said that his wife has a shotgun. He said something to the effect that all she had to do was go out to the balcony and pull the trigger and the blast would be enough to scare away a potential robber.
    So much for the left’s need for gun control.
    Doesn’t he know that any weapon, once one or more projectiles leaves the barrel it is still going to hit something? Or someone? Granted, buckshot from a 12 gauge doesn’t have a very effective range but still..........

    I didn't know my upstairs neighbor (now moved) had a shotgun, until he was actually moving. I saw him carry the zipper rife case to his car and mentioned it to him. "Yep, I have a shotgun" and that was all that was said.

    From what we know, none of my wife's immediate family has any firearms. At least they have never talked about having any. As for us, we've put a few photos on Facebook of my wife shooting our S&W 9mm and me shooting our Remington 20ga. at local Range.

    Why does everyone praise the Twelve Gauge Shotgun?

    It isn't the only Scattergun around!

    What about the 10 Gauge or the 16 Gauge or the 20 Gauge or the 28 Gauge or the .410 Caliber?

    Availability perhaps.
    Even the military used 12 gauges for the hornet round in the Nam. Sadly though, they were put on the “too much fire power” list and were taken off the battlefield. Something about tiny darts coming from a shotgun shell scared some of the diplomatic folks but they sure cleared away a lot of bush and got to the guys who were hiding in it.

    If I were to buy a Shotgun, the 12 Gauge would be my last choice.

    A 12-gauge is hard on your shoulder. At least that's what I remember from shooting my dad's 12-gauge.
