Here is another reason a shotgun makes for one of the most poplar home defense weapons.
When this burglar thinks he has finally gotten into this house undetected, he quickly finds the shotgun-wielding owner isn't playing any games! Just as soon as you see this potential thief enter the house, he comes fly back out just as fast as he went in.
Watch the video below to see why home defense is 100% necessary.
Shotguns have long been one of the most deadly close range weapons and for good measure. They pack a huge punch at close range, sound like a canon, and have one heck of a mean look. This video is proof of just how effective a shotgun can be in scaring off burglars.
Honestly, this man was lucky that the woman kept calm and didn't pull the trigger. If so, things could have ended a lot differently.
