excellent. I'm convinced there isn't a better option for a bedside gun than a pump action 12 gauge. I'd recommend putting a light on that bad boy.
I finally figured out how to shoot my mossberg without bruising the flerp out of my shoulder. Apparently it's really important for the butt of the gun to be in the front shoulder pocket with the elbow down close to the torso instead of out and away from the torso. I didn't know.
speaking of being a dummy........

Has anyone seen The Rifleman? The gun in that show is basically what I have but without big ass ranchers lever loop and of course I don't have the lever screw modification that compressed the trigger when the lever closed because that's super unsafe and dumb.
I dry fired the heck out of it Wednesday night. Not as fun as making it go bang but still fun to shoulder the rifle, work the action, get a feel for the sites and trigger.
Last night I did something dumb. I took the rifle apart. I mean, it's not super dumb because I need to know how to clean it but there was no reason to try and take off the butt stock. Eventually I want to get a blank unfinished butt stock and fore end and put a billy goat carving on the butt stock and some line work on the fore end but that's not going to happen for quite awhile. According to the exploded rifle diagram, and later verified through the internet, there are two screws holding the stock to the frame. Shirt wouldn't budge so I'm like...let me take this screw that's right next to the bottom stock screw. Yeah, bad idea. Without looking at the diagram I took out the main spring screw and of course the butt stock didn't come off. The main spring is what gives tension to the hammer. I was thinking it's no big deal since I was breaking down the whole rifle. Well, I broke it down as far as possible and I can't figure out what's holding the stock on the frame. Now the hammer doesn't fall when I pull the trigger. yeah, what a dummy.
Now I get to call the dude and confess that I'm an idiot and ask how the mother fluck this stock comes off. He'll probably laugh at me and tell me it's just on there real tight and I need to whack it with a rubber mallet. Dude hand fit the internals of this rifle and now I have to tell him I broke it without even shooting it yet. Naturally he's out of his shop until the middle of next week so I guess I'll leave him a message.
I even have 1K 125g rfn lead bullets and a new roll crimp die so I could start to develop a load this weekend.
DUMMY DUMB DUMB DUMB!

Sure, if you only need 5 rounds. At this point, the local criminal element knows not to come at me with fewer than a dozen guys.

the shotgun is just to clear the hall enough so I can get to the M4 in the closet or the Beretta .40 in the living room. or if it's zombies, the samurai sword in the reading/guest room

some of us have pets larger than black widows.
how do you put a claymore on the roof?
aren't you afraid the air movement alone upon a detonation would pretty much level your place? so what's the point?

I put claymores all over the place, but I certainly didn't do it "strategically." I shoot from the hip, literally and figuratively.

and the need for infinite ammo cheat becomes much clearer.
Being a Winnner is like playing with the cheat codes on.

Any suggestions for conducting person to person sales via the interwebs?
