    I'm not sure there is much relevance to his story, legitimate or not beyond the assurance that he becomes a deer in the headlights when it hits the fan, so he believes the rest of us should join him in his ineptitude and lack of resolve.

    right, but the things that seem fake are HILARIOUS. like he loaded it with one shell, then ejected it (which he'd have to unlock the action or fire it to do), but he kept messing with the action? then the bg heard all this from OUTSIDE?

    Let us just suppose for one moment this is a true story (which of course I highly doubt). His gun DID prevent a burglary and did prevent a possible assualt on him and his GF.

    He would have had the intruder come in his house if he did not have the shotgun, albiet he was supposedly a moron and could only manage racking the slide.

    Maybe someone should highlite this story from that angle.

    Yeah, that editorial seems suspect.

    Complete BS. Author has no concept of how a pump shotgun works. Claims he would have been more likely to shoot himself or his girl than a burglar. That I can believe as he is clueless in how his HD gun works and kept it unloaded for some reason. Perhaps due to some uneducated idea that it might "go off" if shells were in the tube.

    Like making it ready by removing trigger lock and putting ammunition next to the gun?

    If that is true it provides a fine example of how/why the owners of a firearm may get hurt with their own gun. Displaying, or deploying, without proper understanding, training, and mindset is a terrible idea.

    and why would you keep it by the DOOR? so when someone breaks in, you have to run past them to the door
