    M118LR Caution: Does not play well with others.

    Usually, the muzzle blast covers the sound of the slide racking. Now they might have good enough hearing to question what the sound of the safety being disengaged is? But it's usually to late to worry about it by then. JMHO.

    Hm. So after racking, the blast overtakes the sound of the rack? (Yeah, I know what you meant but didn't say.) If all you are going to do is shoot, why not put a round in the chamber to start with? And, before exiting the bedroom, why not snick the safety off before hand so that doesn't stand a chance of giving you away?

    M118LR Caution: Does not play well with others.

    Please reread: There is a round in the chamber, hence no need to rack until after the initial round is fired.

    Since there is very little chance that disengaging will effect the outcome, I'll leave it connected while traveling about. Being Old & Shaky, I'll save my trigger finger safety for the opportune moment.

    MotoMom... if I wasn't limited to the three rounds on your poster I would recommend a .30 carbine... limited recoil.. 15-30 rounds in a magazine... lower chance for over penetration... better accuracy than a hand gun (center of mass, I'm not talking the left testicle on a fly at 50 meters)... easy handling characteristics... and if worse come to worse.. you can mount a bayonet and or but stroke a pert easier that with a pistol...

    YMMV

    Ah. OK, didn't see where you said that. You may wish to edit your post 61 to make it clearer. I don't care to make assumptions.

    depending on your ammo .30 carbine could be iffy and yes I do load mine with 110 gr JHP bullets but I saw what a .223 Hornady round did to a pork shoulder, a 9mm JHP penetrated completely, the .223 did not but the cavity in the shoulder was the size of my fist, just for grins the 12 ga slug ruined everything and the exit hole was awesome.

    Actually it was at a trauma first aid class to demonstrate the packing of a wound with gauze to control bleeding. Not a lot of gauze for the 9mm wound, a lot of gauze for the .223 which looked really small on the entrance hole side until you got your hand into the wound, but no exit hole. The 12ga slug, well we didn't pack that one
