I've been thinking some more about what I suggested in my other post in this thread - that is to say, don't call 911, the cops, the county sheriff,
etc. Stash the body where it won't be found, and have a place pre-selected (not on your own land, duh). Now I realise that you need to think about
the bullets you've left in the body. If the body is found, ballistic studies could be done, and you just might get ID'd. What to do? You want to
sleep well after shooting an intruder, right?? As I see it, you will need to do one, maybe two things. First, you need to dig the bullets out of the
body IF you have not used a smoothbore (another often-overlooked advantage of shotguns). However, that runs you into a problem - blood. You'll have
to burn your clothes, bleach the floor, etc. It's messy and nasty. That impels me to Step 2 - have (again, pre-selected) a spare barrel and firing
pin for your autopistol. This is why my pistol of choice is a 0.45 Colt-type auto. With a minimum of tools (I can do it with a pencil or a nail),
the barrel and firing pin can be swapped out, the "killer" parts can be dropped down a deep, dark hole, and the deed CAN NOT be pinned on you. The
replacements need not be premium parts. Tell me what you think of that. Of course, this is advise only for SHTF situations, not "normal" times.
A note to the OP: Good choice! Now to consider extended magazines, etc. My advise is to become so familiar with your gauge that it becomes like an
extension of your body. Know ALL the controls, trigger, fore-end, safety, and any others, such as those allowing you to empty the magazine by pumping
the action. Ask the dealer what you need to buy in the way of spare parts. Good Luck!
