This is my advice too. If you want it for home defense, you can't beat the price, reliability, and ease of use of your basic 12-gauge shotgun. It's got other advantages too:You can still get Mossberg Maverick 88s (a very decent 12 ga shotgun) for under $200 brand new.
This 'cause of your dumbass brother? If you want something cheap there's always the Yeet Cannon, assuming you can find one.So I'm looking to buy a weapon. But when I looked they were all over the place for price. What sucks is if I do this I won't be able to afford my computer upgrade. Mother fucker.
I wonder if anybody has ever tried to Kevin McCallister it and use a recording of that sound to ward someone off.- Simply cocking a shotgun is a field tested and researched deterrent. Everybody knows what that sound is and what it means. People have lost their nerve and surrendered just hearing it.
The guys I talked to about them said basically, "look, you couldn't get me to stand down range of a guy using one, but it definitely wouldn't set my mind at ease to have one as my only defense option, either."I mostly just wanted an excuse to point out there's a gun called the Yeet Cannon. Though I've heard they're actually fairly reliable, just ugly as shit.
I looked around at M9A1 and 92X Compact pricing for something he might be more used to, but those seem to be hovering right around $650.$300....hard to beat. (and, of course, like most /r/GunDeals sales, it went out of stock minutes after being posted)
