Well, the old Ranger just lost my vote. = The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting, unless you mean hunting enemies of The Constitution, both foreign & domestic.
The ONE time that I ever actually NEEDED a firearm for farm defense, I would have liked to have had something better than my old shotgun, as I was facing 4 "drugged-up" criminals, who were threatening that "if you don't open the door & let us in, we'll burn your *** out."
(The local county patrol's Lieutenant later told me that they HAD 2 "Molotov cocktails", 4 rifles & a .32ACP pistol & had the SO's officers NOT arrived when they did, that he was SURE that they WOULD have thrown them onto the roof or against the wall of the farmhouse.)
ADDENDA: The day after my "long night of fear", I went to a local gun-shop & bought a Ruger stainless Mini 14, 4 20-round magazines. & 100 rounds of 5.56NATO ammo
As it was NOT hunting season, don't ask me why that I went back to the townhouse & picked up my shotgun & a container of shells. - Just LUCKY, I'd guess.
(From the time that I called 9-1-1, it took the first SD vehicle over 35 minutes to arrive. = It SEEMED like at least 35 years, too.)
