Default Found out my neighbor got robbed and there was another attempt

My next door neighbor got robbed in the last week. Also another neighbor had an attempted robbery. Luckily though she was home sick and heard the guys and walked to the door with a shotgun and they ran off. It's pretty messed up because i live in a nice area. Houses range from 150k+. I call it "yuppieville" So anyway after we found out my mom said she wanted to have a shotgun in the house. I already have my springfield armory XD 40 SC. So I added this to my starting collection. It's a Mossberg 500 SPX. Often used by law enforcement and military. I wanted the scariest looking shotgun I could and this was the winner. I plan on ordering a tactical light/laser to it once I get it. Went to the gun store today and ordered it. It'll look like this one. Has the pistol grip with adjustable stock with added anti recoil.

I'd rather be prepared then unprepared. Plus you know the zombie apocalypse is just around the corner lol.

One of the best ways to deter burglars is a dog. Dogs work when you're not home and when you're home. The gun can be taken as well if you aren't home and your house is robbed

Dogs are great, expecially if you post Beware of Dog signs. The shotgun is a great back up plus you don't have to worry about aim or the shot going through the wall and into the neighbor's house.

A bit of advise our local police gave us here. If you shoot an intruder, make sure they are inside before you make the call. Meaning if you have to shoot them and they fall outside because they are still in the door way. Drag them in.

Ha, I have that gun! as well as the Springfield Armory XD .40 S&W. Love em both. My buddy just bought the 930 Special Purpose, and I really like that one as well, so I might have to upgrade...

...if there's nobody home, nobody can get robbed. the house, being inanimate and incapable of perceiving a threat of bodily harm, cannot be robbed.


burgled, maybe. not robbed.
