Thanks for pointing out the problems with licensing if you shorten the barrel of a shotgun but that regulation is not applicable where I live...we’re allowed to shorten them down to 28 cms of barrel length. I already have one that has been shortened to that but it’s a 16 so not my cup of tea. But I would not want it that short anyway just short enough so the trigger stays in easy reach ! Very kind of you to worry, but all my gun detention is perfectly legal !@LastRide When you shorten the barrel of a long gun (below a certain amount, without the proper license Class III Firearms license and paying a tax stamp, etc.), keep in mind you would be commiting a FELONY. I don't want to tell you what you should or shouldn't do, but you should keep that in mind whenever you are thinking of doing any alterations to a firearm. So if you aren't already going to CTB soon and/or if you ever get caught, you could end up in a much worse situation than before (not only without your firearm, but also a long prison sentence). I don't want to come down harsh on you but given that you are potentially doing something illegal that carries a heavy sentence, it would be important to know what you are getting into and just fyi, IANAL but this is just my understanding of the law.
As for using the .357 magnum and 12 gauge shotgun simultaneously, in theory/on paper, it could work, but in reality, it may be less complicated to just choose one. Personally, I'm going with the 12 gauge shotgun and I would be going through the mouth aimed at a slight angle pointed upwards. If you choose to go with the .357 magnum instead, you have two choices, you could go via the side of the head (behind the ear) to hit the brainstem, or once again, through the mouth, pointed at an angle slightly upwards.
Finally as far as your last moments alive doing something you enjoy, I guess each to their own. I would be just focusing on staying calm, not hesitating, and just making sure I succeed and be free forever. To each their own though.
I am wondering also whether I am not making things too complicated by wanting to use two very different types of weapons at the same time, as you rightly pointed out....but then, first I cannot decide on which one to use, and second....it just sounds like more fun to make things a little more complex ! And third....I really really do not want to fuck it up again and not succeed....happened before....not great to wake up from...I cannot understand people who are happy they have survived, I was devasted ! So never again ! No stupid mistakes this time, which is why I am taking time to think this through....
