Aha yeah! 1900FPS? That's a tad slow compared to most rifles but still a scary gun to go against, a weapon that is made for psychological warfare. You'll be busy picking up the gun off the ground after firing, but the person was hit would be 20 yards away where he was standing at, in pieces!

1900 fps is fast enough given you can't dodge it unless you're far off and can anticipate the shot. The recoil of a 4 bore is about 250 lbs. so that's like getting shot in the shoulder unless you know how to tame that kind of brunt.

My uncle owns a sig 45 which has been my favorite since the first time I ever shot it. Although I did get to shoot a tommy gun at one of his gun clubs and that was a lot of fun.

I don't own my own yet--haven't had the time to get my license or money but I'm looking forward to when I do.

edit: just noticed you wanted to know fave shot gun not gun in general. Whatever, now i have to make a point to try one out. Any suggestions for a first go.

Resenting the comment about women having a favorite gun as being weird


I feel that all women should have guns.

One day, a rat might wander into the kitchen.

Yeah usually it's recommended to put 80% percent of your body weight on the foot that's placed forward if you're shooting a very large firearm. I just saw a video about the 4 bore, and you pretty much have to wear a leather strap on your shoulder to avoid uncertain injury. Wonder why someone designed a gun so ridiculously huge? Hunting with it is obviously over kill if the bullet for the 4 bore is soft, as in for hunting. Hunting in the mountains with a 4 bore doesn't sound so safe to me, I guess it's only designed for entertainment in my view.

It's meant to be used on the most dangerous game, where stopping power is a must. The big drawback of such a firearm is the cloud of smoke it puts up, so you can't tell immediately if you've downed an animal or not. I'd use it if I didn't have a well compensated .460 Weatherby on hand.

Yeah, first thought was Africa, sometimes the animals just don't go down even if the bullet hit. Could end up being targeted in a full on charge depending on how aggressive the animal is, I would use it also to avoid being pummeled by an elephant or some other huge game. But no worrying about that if you don't miss.

My husband owns a 12 gauge and a single shot shotgun. Plus a couple muzzle loaders, among a few other rifles (including three 22's).
I own a Beretta 380 handgun.
And these are our newest toys - just bought this month:
Bushmaster AR15 and a Remington 770 SPS (270 caliber).


The AR15 has almost no kick to it - I absolutely love firing that gun. The 270 on the other hand kicks pretty bad, and can give a nice bruise if you don't hold it tight enough (not my type of gun).

My shots would be centered in the brain. No messing around. Living things drop like stones when the central nervous system has been turned to liquid.
