This evening I was in the New Academy of course I was in the sporting good section. There was a guy there looking for a home defense shot gun he wanted an 18 ga but the salesman said they were out of them and they did have 16 ga shotgun shells. And they did have 20 and 12 ga shotguns. Neither of them knew much about shotguns from what I heard. But maybe they will come up with an 18ga to go with the 305 that old sailor's used to hunt siernnnnnnnnnn's with lol.
