Guns, Guns And More Guns

Jessie Duff, a very talented marksman, was on Sean Hannity's show the other night. She demonstrated an AR-15, a 30-06 rifle, a .45 caliber pistol and a 12 gauge shotgun with 2 types of shells. All the weapons were semi-automatics. If I had to defend myself against a number of people, the AR-15 with a 30 shot clip would be my weapon of choice. If there was just one person that I was defending myself against, the damage a shotgun does is quite impressive. There are, however, some concerns I have with the weapons Ms. Duff demonstrated. 1) Semi-automatic weapons can jam for no apparent reason. 2) The shotgun is limited by the number of shells you can put in the weapon at any one time - usually around three. 3) Rifles and shotguns can be a bit unwieldy. Therefore, I generally prefer a good old reliable .357 or .38 revolver for home protection. Revolvers are just point and shoot, and you don't have to worry about chambering the first round. Hopefully, we will never have to defend ourselves against any intruders but, if we do, heaven help them if they get past my guard dogs and my lovely wife...I will be waiting.
