I can see it now… I take aim, I shoot. Then I realize that I have sawn off my right nipple!!! Eeeek!

Is it just me or is this just a little scary? I’m all for gun ownership but this seems a little overboard.

One just needs to take off the barrel to make the gun safe to use the saw. Takes about 15 seconds. Make sure it is unloaded first.

As cool as this is, lets try to keep the woodworking review section clean of clutter. This belongs in Non-shop talk.

While misplaced (I agree that it beongs in Non-shop talk), this was still an interesting article. As for the comments about removing the stock for safety and nipple cutting capabilities, the saw blade comes off and stores in the buttstock, along with other survival supplies. This shotgun is one that was built by a guy as a carry all survival kit. Along with the saw, by grabbing just this shotgun in an emergency survival situation, you’d have a firearm, knife, flashlight, compass, fire starting supplies, emergency blanket, cooking supplies, of course a saw, along with other tools of survival.
I read the entire article and, if I could afford it, this is something I might like to build for myself.

May not be Woodworking, but the advice on the bug out kits is spot on.
GPastor, thanks for turning me on to a useful site.

Don’t need a saw, if you have a SAW. Just sayin’.

This survivalist nonsense has no place on this website. I grew out of those fantasies when I was about 12 years old.

I agree that the link to this article was posted in the wrong place here at Lumberjocks. It should have been placed in Non-Shop Talk.
However, I also think the insults are posted in the wrong place as well. They should be posted anywhere besides on Lumberjocks.
The quircky humerous comments were one thing, but insulting the original posters maturity level? That’s uncalled for in my opinion.
I understand that this sort of thing is not of interest to some people (thus the reason for my belief of where it should have been posted). However, it does interest others. Therefore, the insults that are directed at the original poster also will feel insulting to anyone interested in this. I try to take such insults with good humor. Therefore I have one things to say to anyone who feels the need to insult the original poster here.
In case of emergency, don’t come to where me or my family is. We’re not sharing.
Also, the ideas presented in this article are survivalist take to the extreme. In case anyone here has never read anything on the site the original poster lined to, that site often goes over the top I think in an effort at humor as well.
In other words, lighten up.
