    I only have $350 in the discretionary budget for next month. There was a sale on shotguns at the local sporting goods store, this being my first "home protection" device. But I realize I have been driving around for a year without a car stereo.

    What should I get, a new car stereo or a new shotgun.

    Shotgun. Take shotgun to car window (not yours). Acquire stereo.

    Do I need to do all the thinking here??

    yup keep hunting till you can get both. You just need a radio and one of them fm transmitters for your ipod. = cheap. Then get a shotgun

    My vote is shotgun. It would provide hours more entertainment. Go to a shooting range and learn to use it properly as well.

    Will zombies be scared off by the stereo?

    If not the shotgun is the logical choice.

    Is a shotgun sufficient for the mean streets of SF? The Feather Boa Strangler might be wearing ceramic armor.

    I've got my eye on this beauty. But not for home protection that is what the DPG is for.
    For shooting tasty pheasants & quail.

    In all honesty, if I'd seen that while driving along I probably would've crashed my car due to laughing my ass off...

    Shotgun lasts a lifetime or more if you take care of it. Stereo...never had one for more than a few years.

    Do you have an old computer lying around? If so, there's no reason why you can't have both.

    I came across this gem last week while looking for an inexpensive solution to replace my busted-@ss car stereo.

    Buy the shotgun. Listen to CDs(-nutz).

    step 1: buy shotgun.

    step 2: fire repeatedly without hearing protection.

    step 3: now you're deaf. car stereo unnecessary

    My issue has been leaving them in the vehicles when I sell rather than removing them and finding the original or a cheap replacement. Plus, by the time I'm done with the car there's a better head unit available. $300 is around what I normally spend.
