Default Why "my" projects never get done...

My bride finds an article on Facebook and tells me she wants me to make these with (or at least for) the daughters now that they are at college or will be next year.

I ask if she is serious or joking, and her response is still not clear. I begin to press the issue further, trying to get out of this project, but before I can her FB post now has additional requests for this to be made by others.

I guess I need to find a cheap baseball bat supplier......

It would probably give a false sense of security unless your daughters learned to use it. I'd want the club in my right hand. Clubs have to be swung with maximum force or you just piss off the attacker. Gotta break bones, leg, arm, skull, and gun trumps club every time.

The wife's delay in my house means she's still thinking about it.

Pretty stupid idea! Does it come with use instructions? In use it looks like a good way to get a broken arm.
Buy them a Taser, can of pepper spray, 357.

A subcompact 9mm or a .38 Special would do much better.

A surprising amount of people are not put off by a handgun pointed at them. Also it takes training to fire a handgun accurately in a stress situation like that. No, I go for a Mossberg 500 12 gauge pump, barrel shortened to about 20 inches (which makes it an excellent quail gun also), buttstock shortened slightly, loaded with #4 buckshot. I've never yet heard of anyone hearing one of those pumping a round into the chamber and not get put off. Bed holder.

No, a semi-auto would not be better, among other issues, too much possibility of pulling the trigger more than once. And if not familiar with this firearm some training/teaching would be appropriate. It is also very important not to shoot unless an actual intruder is identified - a number of family members get killed this way.

Aguila makes mini shotgun shells, so you can load more. However, as is they do not feed well, so a about a $20 gadget must be bought and used to feed reliably - don't recall the name at the moment, but thinking Amazon carries them, don't know if WallyWorld does or not.

Got it - OPSol Mini-Clip.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

It was meant in a humorous way more than anything else, I’d never suggest using a firearm without a proper training.

A lot of the college dorms prohibit fire arms... but Louisville sluggers are permitted ��

Ah. I don't like the 9mm, too much penetration, go thru the intruder, and possibly the neighbor's wall. Shotgun way more likely to hit someone, and not near the penetration. Safer, for everyone except the intruder.

Circuit Judge,with self defence .410 loads, is my solution, and a .45 long colt in the last chamber.
