После такой картинки как-то и домой идти неохота.

My brother looking over my shoulder said the girl with the frying pan reminds him of his marriage. He remembers being greeted by his wife like that once when he came home late.

The shotty by an edge! Still trying to draw a bead on something with the scope rail attached is a BITCH!

Of course at conversation distance, it doesn't matter THAT much.

I was thinking it depends entirely on the situation.

This. A shotty is worthless when trying to make scrambled eggs. :)

and a cast iron skillet is much nearer to hand when in the kitchen than a shotgun (though I don't think that picture has a cast iron skillet... which just causes me to question someone's cooking choices.)

That and the satisfying thunk upon impact...

I use non-stick in the kitchen myself. Though when camping it's all about the cast iron. Though I use the cast iron in the kitchen if I'm making corn bread. Mmmm... A tasty, tasty treat.

"and a cast iron skillet is much nearer to hand when in the kitchen than a shotgun..."

Depends upon whose kitchen. I've seen a number where the shotgun is mounted to the side of the cabinet, but the pans are in a drawer underneath. Much easier to get at the shotgun. If I recall correctly from the owners, opening the front door one morning to a bear up on the porch prompted that particular situation...

I can see that in rural areas of Maine, but I'm Atlanta. Not a lot of bears hanging around down this way and the kitchen isn't by the entrance. On the other hand, I keep my cast iron skillet (one of them anyway) on the stove top at all times because I'm too lazy to pull it out and put it up every day.

I'm in NH, actually. But yeah, that might not go over well in Atlanta.

And there's always a cast iron skillet on my stove, too.

Of course, in my case, the whole shotgun/skillet argument is moot, since any time I have pants on, I have a pistol on, so I wouldn't go out of my way to retrieve a shotgun when the pistol is right there, unless a horde of zombies was attacking, or somesuch...

Look at the close-up: the rail has built-in three dot sights.

I'll take the Mossberg for $200, Alex.

For defense, the gun would definitely work better - but for offense, I'd rather start with the frying pan and work up to the gun. If I started a conversation with a partner by screaming - or with a gun, there's no room to escalate, and no easy way to de-escalate from my end.

Guns are great for situations in which you wish to deal death or prevent death. Frying pans are great for "and exactly why did you have lipstick on your collar?"

That said, frying pans are certainly closer to hand in the kitchen - is there such a thing as a holster comfortable enough to wear when padding around in a nightshirt and while making tea and omlettes?

Don't mess with Shelby with either in her hands!

tlekas: Fight your way to your shotgun

A skillet is what you use to fight your way to your shotgun. :-)

Maybe I am slow today but it took me a bit to recognize what she was holding as a skillet. Initially it looked like a flat black circle. It did not take me long but it just looked strange at first. Once I realized what it was I can see that there is some variation across it but it is subtle. I can see the partial thing ring of the underlying metal. Also, initially I did not look at the details of the handle.

A normal cast iron skillet might have worked better for me, or maybe different lighting.

She looks a lot like my own daughter. Daddy made sure she could shoot "Expert" before she went to Navy boot camp. No frying pan for her.

I think you should have had the shottie held in her hand too. I'd like to see it with both to compare though.
