    Banning Shotguns, are they nuts??

    Colorado has a bill going through to ban both pump and semiauto shotguns. The reasoning is that a magazine extender tube can be purchaser to increase its capacity to eight rounds which makes it a high capacity magazine. A pump or semi auto shotgun is not an assault weapon by any definition. I think it is more for the fact that within its limitations the shotgun is a very versatile tool, you can hunt for food, defend your home and use it for recreation.

    Depending on what you load it with (especially the 12 ga), it is good for small game and up to bear or moose, not sure about going up against a grizzly with a shotgun but it has been done. A shotgun is a good way to put food on the table if that is what you have.

    As for home defense at close quarters not much beats a 12 ga. with 00 buckshot. More often than not the sound of the slide being cycled on a pump shotgun will make all but the most drug addled criminal think twice about continuing his actions. If the perp continues with his plan he will most likely be down for the count after catching several .30 cal. pellets at close range. The shotgun is forgiving of not having a perfect sight picture in a high stress situation when using buckshot, even if the perp does not catch all of the pellets he will at least be slowed down long enough to put a second round in him.

    No, a shotgun is not the ultimate weapon but it sure beats having nothing.

    Yeah, before you know it, we will be allowed slingshots and clubs only... Then they will make an excuse to ban them too !!


    The Greatest fear in the world is the opinions of others,
    and the moment you are unafraid of the crowd,
    you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion.
    A great roar arises in your heart,
    the roar of FREEDOM.
