    Heard that Joe Biden recommends that a shotgun is a good idea for home defense, but not an assault rifle. Sounds like pretty "fair" advice, given that .223 bullets might go from one condo's walls to another or something like that.

    I wish to know, and I sorta like this Biden idea, but haven't read all of the particulars.

    Joe, please advise:

    1. May I get a cosmoline-new Model 12 trench gun if I go through a civilian shotgunning course?

    2. Who will remove the barrel bayonet lug, if anybody?

    3. If I can get the military version of the Model 12, may I ask for one with a full choke? Or is it "catch as catch can?"

    4. If the government has no shotguns available for any program, may I buy one through Ford Motor Company or through G.M. to help the economy?

    5. Most importantly, should I buy 7.5's or 8's to use in my new home defense shotgun?

    Thanks...and, in reality, I think this is good advice for home defense. Oh, and I'd particularly like to put in for, if there is any program, a government stored-in-cosmoline Model 42. In fact, I think this would be a "green" gun since it would use less lead. I'll buy at least ten of 'em if available in any program about which I have no idea if or where such a program exists. I am kicking myself for not following through for the M-1 as per the Civilian Marksmanship Program....

    Thanks,

    David

    Seems to be the opinion of Jim Scoutten of Shooting USA, also. Although he prefers a 20 ga. pump. His reasoning, nothing gets the attention quicker then the sound of loading a shell into the chamber, like a pump.

    Biden notes the ease of use for a double barrel shotgun for defense use by his wife. Just pull the trigger.

    Uh, Joe, it's trigger is just as easy to use as a semi-auto shotgun.

    What a putz.

    I think the real people guarding Biden should also be limited to a double shotty.

    Biden all I have do is pull the trigger on any gun I own, what a moron. Screw Biden, Obama and anyone in the rest of the government or civilian that is trying to tell me what I need or own. The last time I checked this isn't Russia.

    Jon you need to tell Jim Scoutten that the only thing the perp would hear is the click of the safety going to fire, he might hear the click of the trigger but that would be immaterial at that point

    Self defense isn't like the movies, when the perp hears the racking of the load into the chamber you will very likely get shot before you fire

    Pretty funny CalvinMD. Since Biden is such an expert, all of a sudden, on shotguns and personal defense, I wonder if he shoots skeet with Barry Sotelo at Camp David?

    Doubt the shootin skeet part at all..but can easily imagine them sitting crosslegged on the floor ..using a shotgun barrel as a way of doing a crackpipe smoke blow between while cranking up the Jimi Hendrix jams

    I betcha they do shoot shotguns at Camp David. Why not, "toys are toys" and they don't have to pay for ammo and a shoot ticket. (I'd guess, don't know, maybe they do have to pay someting or full tilt...)


    Kinda cool, Presidency has its perks, and they may think that shooting sports ought to only be for the entitled anyway...then it is quite ok.

    Maybe after a while Russians will have more freedoms than we have.

    His head is starting to list again. Probably time to get the bolts in his neck tightened back up.

    After telling telling his wife how to blast out the door with her double barrel I'm sure the criminals have now written a personal note: Wait for the two bangs then break in while she figures how to open them damn thing to reload

    The first shot would go through the door, but the second would go through the ceiling. LOL>
