OK snowdreamer, let us give you a situation...

A "highly evolved being" just busted down your front door and is heading toward you with a machete with a wild look on his face.

Do you:
A) Invite him to tea and crumpets
B) Whip out your feather duster and tickle him into submission
C) Use your (insert name of favorite gun here) and blast him to the afterlife

tick-tock-tick-tock...

Hey Snowdreamer........................

First of all, your thoughts and desires re "snow" are going to become a reality for N/W Montana in the next 48 hrs, particularly above 4500 feet.

Also, as I mentioned in my early post (#9), if you get a pump gun (something similiar to a Rem Mdl 870) in 20 ga, w/ a 26 " barrel and choke tubes, you can use it for a home defense weapon and as a sporting shotgun for our several specie of grouse, pheasant, turkey, rabbit and waterfowl. You can get 20 ga loads as light as 3/4 oz of shot (with about 1/2 the recoil of a standard 12 ga load, and for turkey, pheasant or duck, you can go all the way up to 1 5/16 oz of #5 shot ( in the 3" length shells). Admittedly these 3" loads will recoil quite a bit -- but when shooting at a live game target-- you'll not notice it very much.

I commend you for educateing yourself in the firearms field.

Either that, or someone mistook an old 10-gauge for a mule

You are so right about guns causing a lot of problems, just like those pesky knives and ice-picks, not to mention those evil baseball bats, steel rods, crossbows, 2x4s, bricks, fists and cars.

The need for more than one weapon is evolving.
Tea and crimpets just make a mess.
Dusters just spread a lot of dust to the wrong places.
And a well fortified home will or should keep a criminal outside where they belong.

Just in case this person gets through the barriers of barbed wire, moats and gators we need to greet this person with a .357 and say "Oh Hi. You are not welcome in my home and I have some deadly force for you".

Pray for the person out loud and if they just turn around nail with a round on the outside of his can cheeks because if this person is inside your home he is looking for trouble and your rights have been violated by this person. You can apply deadly force or pop one in his can. If you pop him in his can he will have a tough time explaining to his bar room buddies why he needs to use a clear surgical bag tied to his waist...........

POOF!

My pencil spelled a word wrong this morning. I think they should outlaw pencils.
