While I worked as a Police Officer my late wife would be home alone days, evenings, and nights and there were not positive times for my return home. My late wife was of course concerned about her safety. I took her shooting but she was not confident with her use of a handgun. I had an old single barrel MASS ARMS 12 gauge Shotgun. I cut the barrel to 18 1/2" and added a Savage 410er, a 12 Gauge barrel insert to allow the loading and firing 410 Shotgun shell in a 12 Ga. Shotgun. I took my late wife to the range with said shotgun and 410 shotgun shells. She found it easy to shoot and when we looked at the target it was covered with holes. Her comment was "Where did all those holes come from?" From that time on when I came home extra late at night the shotgun was usually beside the bed taken from it's place in the locked closet.
