Cool. Did you use a prefabbed jig or make your own?

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
I'm not much of an enthusiast, but I am former military and I own a gun. I don't do anything special with it. I just like it to be in my drawer in case someone is in the house that shouldn't be.

I have a S&W Governor, which some people see as kind of gimmicky. I like it though. I like having a shotgun so I don't have to worry much about my aim while I'm under pressure, but I don't like storing or wielding a large weapon.

I used to subscribe to The American Rifleman. On page 10 there is a compendium of stories of self-defense called "The Armed Citizen". One of them, a few years ago, detailed a story of an 80+ YO woman fending off an intruder with a 10 Gauge shotgun (19.7 mm, .77" bore size). I hope she was taking her calcium supplements. Though I will admit that willowy people have more ability to flex and absorb the recoil than others do, on occasion.

As for the shotgun, you might be able to purchase a barrel within legal limits that has an appropriate choke for short range work. Also, think about bear loads.

Also, just curious. What type of training have you had with that little gem?

Training with it is awkward, I will admit. I've trained plenty with revolvers (my favorite gun style) and I've fired some shotguns. With it being a hybrid of the two ideas, it's both simple and weird at the same time. Firing .45 rounds from it is not at all as useful or accurate as with other standard revolvers, but the .410 shotgun rounds have no kick at all compared to larger shotguns. That's all I would ever bother with in that gun. Obviously it's little use for things like hunting, which is why I have it for home defense.

You'd think a .22LR could do the job.

P.S. Do people still use bangsticks?

Not legally in Florida.

68B-20.003 Spearing, Statewide Regulation; Prohibition Against Powerheads, Bangsticks, and Rebreathers; Repeal of Certain Special Acts.
(7) The use of powerbeads, bangsticks, and rebreathers is prohibited as specified in Rule 68B-4.012, Florida Administrative Code.

Before they were banned I had a dive buddy shoot at a Goliath grouper with one (not far from my head)...he missed but I fucking couldn’t hear for what seemed like hours and gave me a splitting headache.

Just did an ar10 for the nephew...

The instructions said the job could be done with a drill press.

Pre-fab. I don't have the tools or skills to make my own.

I suppose it could, but I used a drill press to put 8 holes in the trigger well, followed by a router with a 3/8" end mill to finish it, followed by a drill press to drill the holes for the safety selector and trigger group pins.

I got the jig and tooling from these guys.
