    BuckB Are you an organ donor? If not put your organs where your mouth is. An easy way to end organ shortages is for everyone to sign up to be a donor. You don't need to murder petty criminals for that purpose. - will2

    I have thought of a safe way to make it safe but it still wouldn't be legal...

    Instead of shooting a 12 gauge shell, insert a 12 gauge to .22lr adapter cartridge. The adapter cartridge adds an insane amount of metal to the firing chamber, and the .22lr shell wouldn't be a concern as far as opposite and equal reaction. Essentially it would be a zip gun on steroids.

    But I would never build that because it would be illegal. And, I hate spending $10 when I can spend $180 for the real thing. Especially if I was going to leave it in a back woods stash, ie the real thing is so much better to find rusted out and or missing

    Just saying

    And it would be accurate for about 10ft. You might be better off throwing rocks. I think I would rather spend the money on something that I could actually rely on.

    Don't look at me. I was suggesting a good source for firearms if your budget is tight...
