    Hope you all live on 200 acre plantations and not in crowed subdivisions. When your bullets start crashing through your neighbors homes your neighbors will team up with the burglars and start shooting at you! For sure.

      After much research an AR is what I finally decided on.....but not my reason for this post.

      I thought this was an interesting test......how lethal is a .22LR?

      Who knew?

        If you are a door to door vaccum cleaner salesman do not go to huntfish's house.
        He probably has one of those-

        "In wall hidden electronically fired(wireless) multiple shells gun" at his front door.

          Hey. . . A Claymore mine! Why ain't I never thunk of that afore! That's the bestest idear yet in this thread!
          If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

            The trick the VC learned about the Claymore mine was to slip up and turn them around.

            As for the .22 it has been the weapon of choice of hitmen for years (Mafia, Mossad, etc.) You may have seen the winner of "Top Shot" a couple of competitions back hit a golf ball with a scoped .22 rifle at 100 yards, 1 shot 1 hit.

              Nah, Huntfish don't need it.......bad guys can take their chances

                Scattergun + #4 shot or something close will vegematic someone at home intruder range and you shouldn't take out the new TV in the next room or shoot up the neighborhood with errant rounds. Besides, any inexpensive shotgun will suffice while I continue to save for that plantation.

                  That is a sweet AR
                  Amen to not penetrating walls... I guess we sometimes forget that loved ones are also inside the house with us, and having pistol and rifle rounds flying around everywhere could be a dual edged sword. A remington 870 pump (20 or 12 gauge) with dove loads (low brass) works great. People aren't as resilient as you would think...
                  Matthew 4:19 - Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." (20) At once they left their nets and followed him.

                  There is even greater fishing than fly-fishing... And an even greater reward!

                  That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

                    I would have stated "Generally, people aren't as resilient as you'd think."

                    Never underestimate the power of chemicals. Pull the plug out of the 870.

                      Don,
                      No need to pull the plug out of the 870.....Just make the first shot count....

                        I think you hit the nail on the head... Generally, people aren't as resilient as one would think. I'm all for no plug and more ammo!! Unless I'm in a woodie hole and I forgot my running shoes... Then 3 will do just fine!
