I'd put my vintage Stevens 520 trench gun up against any newfangled cerapumper for home defense. I can cycle a whole mag tube through it while newboys are looking for their slide release button. Still looking for an original duckbill shot spreader for it.
I congratulate you on your new purchase. I believe every house should have weapons, especially now that there are many more crazy people. For example, I even walked down the street with a gun, and once, it saved my life because some drug addict decided to attack me with a knife for robbery. I shot him in the legs, and he fell, so I went home without foreshadowing trouble... Oh, you have to be careful about self-defense, because if the person you shot sues, you will have many problems... However, in my life, I turned to Military attorneys near me only after the army for help.
