A stevens 311, with the barrels cut back to 20 inches or so would fit with the motif. :ugeek:

I was thinking more along the lines of a shotgun suitable for a task rather than a motif... Like virtually any pump or semi 20 gauge. There's even a few unconverted Saiga 20s still around, which would be an ideal basis for a formidable and soft shooting young lady's anti-varmint device.

If we're going shotgun and the lady likes old school, there's really only one choice....

Please, do NOT give her any more ideas! She knows she's not 9 feet tall and bulletproof, but she's pretty sure she can fake it. If she had a shotgun with a bayonet, we'd have to sedate her with a ball-peen hammer to keep her out of trouble!

Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range?

Callahan Full-bore Auto-lock. Customized trigger, double cartridge, thorough gauge. She could call her "Vera".
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

First Shirt, are you taking notes? You could give Lawdog a run for the money if you put this all down on paper.

Nah, it would never work. People that don't know her wouldn't believe it, and people who do know her would say I'm soft pedaling it.
