    That presumes that either:

    1. The person has the time and money to become proficient with a handgun as well.
    or
    2. The person has no interest in owning a handgun, nor ever carrying.

    I'd say, 9 times out of 10, a small frame revolver is the way to go. It covers all the needs, shooting a shotgun at a pistol range is not so nice and training is all on a single weapon with cheap range ammo. Not to mention that going around corners with a long gun sucks.

    With the price of some self-defense rounds (extra safety for everyone), those should be a write-off.

    in both bears and boars,precise shots count,a slight failure means a pissed off animal,and if your in texas,hunting anyting means youll probably run into a boar,theyare so huge and overpopulated here cities in certain areas actually pay hunters to kill them and set up no limit kill zones for them.boars are just crazy,3 30-06 rounds to the head and they just shake it off like nothin happened,if you didnt hit your mark a 44 cal or higher is needed or your dead.
    Boars are the worst from what I understand, I've been told bear attacks usually come from getting too close or encroaching at the wrong time but boars are aggressive and will charge whenever they feel like it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Boar hunting spears have a cross-bar ~1/3 up because a boar will impale itself to get to you. Hunting them with a bow is not a joke. Chicks chasing down and hogtieing little half-wild babies is not the same thing, that's circus crap.

    The PHALANX (as is it's predecessor) is commonly called a "cannon", but in reality it is a gatling style rifle. It fires closed cartridges with a fixed propellent that is non-explosive (but it is incendiary bursting). And it is fired from a 6-barrel (progressive RH parabolic twist, 9 grooves) electric or hydraulically revolving firing system.

    So yes, it is a rifle.

    Does a single action revolver qualify as semi-automatic? A six shooter can only take six bullets limiting the amount of carnage. Handguns with clips holding more rounds = more carnage. But if you can't defend yourself using six bullets, then you probably need training and shouldn't have a gun.

    See, that's the problem right there. Gun righters don't know half of what they claim and worse yet, they can't even agree among themselves on terminology and types of weapons. I see you guys constantly correcting each other. So if you can't agree on your own verbage, then how can you expect a novice like me to know more than you in order to ban the type of weapons that don't belong in our communities?

    Fair enough. Though most rifle definitions also require the weapon to be shoulder mounted.

    Games? Moi? But you said you could take someone out with one "well placed shot." So I assume you don't need a semi-automatic with a clip holding 10 or 30 rounds to defend yourself. Too bad lizzie, you set yourself up, no bait neccessary.
