Trying to decide on a gun / guns? Money a big factor?
In my opinion, you can't beat an H&R Pardner 12 gauge coupled with a EAA Witness .45 ACP/.22lr Combo. You get essentially two high quality handguns and a 12 gauge pump-action for what you'd expect to pay for just one big-name pistol. Btw, Tanfoglio (EAA in America) supplies many military and police in many countries and have been around since the 40's making high quality firearms.

For those on low budgets, that's a lot of firepower for not so much money. No I'm not a dealer or have any financial interest in providing the info. Just sharing thoughts on good value for the money in firearms.

Here's another idea.

Get a Marlin .22 semi auto with a scope. $150 bucks brand new. It holds 18 rounds. It's as quiet as an air rifle and can be made totally silent with an 18oz pop bottle. It'll drop a deer with the right shot. And you can get a box of 500 rounds for about $12 bucks at Wal*Marrt.

You can sell blood and afford this weapon. Perfect for everything. Especially a SHTF scenario. If you have money later then yes get a bigger caliber. But for the money, you can't go wrong with this purchase.

The more important question is Can you pull the trigger and kill someone?

What circumstances would drive you to do it?

What would you do with the body?

If your victim is unarmed, you will mandatorily go to prison. Are you prepared to do 20 to life?

If your victim breaks into your house, you will still go to prison if you shoot him.

Re: Trying to decide on a gun / guns? Money a big factor?
I'm not going to crap on the .22, I think it has its place in the home defense setup, but it would not be my first choice by any stretch. In the same price range as an inexpensive .22 rifle, you can find that H&R pump shotgun the OP mentioned for around $179, and the Maverick 88 goes for the same price at Walmart and Academy as well.

Hit the pawn shops, and you can probably cut that down to around $125 used...and you'll probably turn up a few good used Mossberg 500s and Winchester 1200s in that price range as well.

If it's for home protection I'd go for shotgun. You don't need a great aim and within 10 meters you are pretty much guaranteed to hit what you want even if you are shaking like a leaf.

Has a great fear factor as well. Go the full works and make a sawn off will add x10 to the effect.

With a gun it's actually hard to hit a target if you are shaking.

"Florida woman survives gunshot between the eyes
Bullet shatters, bounces off skull of 42-year-old victim in road rage assault"

"Police investigators would theorize that the man fired three shots from a gun that they believe was a .44-caliber handgun. One of the bullets struck Marie directly between the eyes."

[link to www.gunandgame.com]

"The article said, "Put a plate of food in front of the pig. Draw a mental line from its left eye to the right ear, and from the right eye to the left ear. Shoot the animal with a .22 rifle where the lines intersect and it will die quickly and painlessly." In the event, when I followed those instructions, the pig did NOT die quickly and painlessly. The .22 LR round is not up to the task of instantly dispatching a pig with a head shot at a range of less than five feet. It took me three rounds, including a final one with the muzzle literally stuck into the pig's ear, to finish it off. I concluded that if we ever went to slaughter a pig again, I'd use a .30-30 or heavier rifle cartridge to do the job, or perhaps a 9mm pistol."

Police Issue Bullet Bounces off Pit Bull's Head
Knock Triggers Attack
Cortez, CO - It was reported that after Macing one of two pit bulls that attacked a woman, deputies then used a "bite sleeve" to help guide the second dog away. When that failed, deputies shot at the pit bull, but the bullet "ricocheted" off its skull. It would be interesting to know how often a police issue bullet, shot from a police issue firearm, bounces off a dog's head instead of penetrating it. The unlucky victim, Nancy Thomas, suffered a fractured wrist and "a lot of stitches."

Wow, is your memory really that short?

Your post said "99% of people would never get in a situation where 'stopping power' would even be needed."

I was giving you specific examples where stopping power would be needed: hunting medium size came and dispatching intruders in your house.

Your example is retarded. You're not going likely to be going around sniping "enemies" from 100 yards. You seem to think that the most likely scenario is a crazed PCP addict who's charging you from halfway across a football field and you just have to be able to shoot him a couple times in the neck with your pea shooter before he gets to you.

Is this what they taught you in basic training? Did they teach you to be even stupider than you were when you arrived?

If it's for home protection I'd go for shotgun. You don't need a great aim and within 10 meters you are pretty much guaranteed to hit what you want even if you are shaking like a leaf.

Has a great fear factor as well. Go the full works and make a sawn off will add x10 to the effect.

With a gun it's actually hard to hit a target if you are shaking.

I don't know. At 5-7 yards, buckshot still patterns pretty tightly. About the size of a paper plate. Its easier to hit than with a handgun, but still requires aim.

And a sawed off shotgun will earn you an all-expenses-paid vacation at your local Federal prison for the next 10 years here in the US.

Re: Trying to decide on a gun / guns? Money a big factor?
Look if your getting shot at it really doesnt matter what weapon is doing the shooting, your gonna stop and reconsider. Its not like your gonna say "oh its only a 22lr I'll be ok!" One of those rounds hit you in the belly it will bounce around 5 or 6 times before its done!

Generally speaking, I agree. The problem is that once drugs/alcohol enter the equation, as is often the case with home invasions, the perpetrator may lose their self-preservation instinct.

I don't think my state allows you to hunt deer or elk with a .22, you are required to have something larger.
