Posted this on the Cooper-Young robbery thread a couple weeks ago: Well, I keep the shotgun in the closet next to the bed. The shells are on the upper shelf. Sometimes when I'm feeling paranoid, I practice jumping out of bed, grabbing the gun, and sticking a couple shells in it. Don't ever keep a loaded gun around, obviously. The shells are birdshot, which probably wouldn't kill anybody except at very close range, but would leave a nice coating of lead on your ass. I've only had to use it once, when my girlfriend spotted a peeping tom on our porch. I opened the front door, stepped out and cocked the shotgun. He was naked except for a hat and tennis shoes. He ran off at high speed, balls flapping, and I was laughing too hard to even think about shooting. Ah, Midtown.
HAS to be the same guy.
