Ok you all know I'm not one to pick on anyone, especially Wayne. But I had to take the time to read the long post of false information so I felt it was my duty to clarify some things.

Wayne, a shotgun is not a rifle! It has no riflings or groves inside the barrel. Some shotguns will have a twist inside the barrel but much different than groves or "riflings ".

Added information, Barb remember the shotgun has limited distance so don't shot to soon. Using a 4' X 4' sheet of plywood and shooting at different distances you will get a better idea of just how far away you can shot effectively. Once you determine the best distance set you some markers around your property at those distances and don't shoot the coyote till its within your range. The markers can be anything, rocks, plants etc.

20 gauge much better than 10 gauge. The size of the barrel on a 10 gauge is about the size of a half dollor!

They are called "lands" and "grooves," and designed to provide many things to the projectile but the most important is accuracy. Lands and grooves (rifling) is used in forensic investigations also. Even with a whole lot of difficulty shotguns can leave markings, depends on certain things, and with difficulty. Not the weapon of choice for thugs - to noisy.

I caveat-ed "Rifle" in my post with (shotgun). If a shoulder fired weapon is pointed at you from 50 years away, duck, there is no way to identify which is which.

Oh, and just for fun - there are shotguns that are rifled. Don't make me prove it to you by searching.

This comes from years on command rifle teams.


You're picking on me again!

Well my aim has improved since 1860 , and the tradition is and was taking out the varmints that wish to prey on our animals and livestock of course, and remember chickens can peck a rattler faster than they can strike .....

Jeff, I thought about getting chickens. Tractor Supply is still selling baby chicks and this time of year they wonít need much heat. Those heat lamp bulbs can drain batteries in record time and Iím on solar power.

The concern is that the chickens will make us more attractive to coyotes. I have been reading about chicken tractors which sound like a great way to keep weeds under control but we wonít have any weeds until it rains again.

But, rattlesnakes are also a fear. My little blonde bimbo sticks her nose in every critter hole in the ground. Two years ago she went thru rattlesnake avoidance training but Iím not confident she will remember what she learned.

Decisions, decisions...

Jeff, watched this a while back in complete amazement. Had no idea that bunnies had mutant Ninja Relatives.

I'll bet Jeff can jump as high as that rabbit if a rattle snake is nearby.
Tim would just stare it down!

Now let's see, which gal of the old west carried a shotgun.....Calamity Jane, Annie Oakley?
Barb needs an old west style nickname from this....."Buckshot Barb" ??
If you mean the rubbery piece on the back end of the stock, yes it has one.

I may have some ninja bunnies because Iíve never seen a rattlesnake here, or a snake of any type.

And thatís probably what ate all my Aloe Vera plants and even the roots in a single night. A friend gave me a whole box of plants after she cleaned up an overgrown patch, probably 30 good sized plants that were growing well and one that I planted in Spring 2019. Then they started chewing on the Agave and bark off the bushes and trees.

Hmm, which is the bigger threat?

It might have a very thin one, but you can get a thicker one... but yes like both tim and wayne said.... just figure out your distance and put a marker/rock/wood. So you will know when to shoot....

You got this....

Barb, take the aforementioned unit that may or may not have anything to do with the second. Point it in the general direction. Slowly tighten up on the activation part and then see what happens.
