I think that may be the worst idea ever. Lets say you've recently fired your gun.... all that fun carbon build-up in your mouth... Mmmmm yummy.
I'm gonna go see if I can convince a concert conducter to replace his brass line with an assorment of calibers.....

It takes all kinds..........Then again you can put the barrell back in real quick like and drop that love-struck bull elkyou just bugled in for some camp meat.That ought to help out your situation some .

Jokes aside - in fact any tube placed to lips and lips pursed properly will yield a useful note. Whether tho this small size and length would be louder than a good whistle or holler - not so sure.
Anyone done this trick with a piece of hosepipe - makes a great sound.
Wonder if there is room in an orchestra for the guy playing the 40 cal Barstow

Wouldn't a gunshot be louder than any whistle??

Now that's just the sort of dangerous, right wing radical, non PC kind of thinking that has made our society so crime ridden!

One of the formerly accepted wilderness distress signals was three, evenly spaced, shots. It might even be heard farther away then a "pistol barrel bugle"!
On the other hand we could have various sections in the orchestra all the way from the light and delicate "Keltec .32" section to the low and profound "10 gauge goose gun" bass section in the back. The post concert parties might just bring new meaning to classical music being a blast!

Im not putting my lips on a barrel wether its in a gun or not!

As far as I know the three spaced shots is not a "former thing to do".
The only problem I have ever heard about NOT working was the guy that was found after week, said he tried it until he ran out of arrows.:0

I'm going to disassemble one of the guns I'm not carrying, of a sufficiently large caliber so as to not sound like a chipmunk fart (noted above), and carry it with me so I don't have to disassemble my carry gun. On the other hand why not just carry an air horn and be done with it?

After reading the entire article, including the posted quote, I'm going to have to give my professional medical opinion that the author is an idiot. The whole article is filled with bad advice.
We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

WOW! Talk about innovation.
I'm surprised they didn't say:
"Shoot yourself in the foot. The scream that follows, is sure to attract attention..."
