Small gun is for when I need it unexpectedly. Anything where I anticipate a good chance I need a gun, carbine (C8) comes out. There is still a role for the shotgun, but in most situations the carbine is the better choice.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
