Agreed. If you have neighbors you do not want to put a projectile thru your wall, or thru the perp, and have it go across the street, thru your neighbors wall and kill him while he's watching TV.It might be said, that a drawback to shotguns is their lack of distance, but it can also be said one of the greatest things about a shotgun is their lack of distance. That bad guy intent on doing harm in your home, a shotgun is all you need to change his plans, but you go shooting that high powered rifle the possibility of putting rounds outside your home somewhere you don't want them to go is real.
That cold winter morning when you're out trying to put food on the table, and you kick up that rabbit who is leaving the area in a zig-zag high rate of speed, keep the rifles, give me a 12ga with #4 or #6 shot.
Too much work. I just open the door and let the dogs loose.:mrgreen:I wouldn't mind one of those myself. I could patrol my yard from the comfort of a chair and a glass of lemonade.
