Back around 1980, a farmer was turning off a main highway, in his red 1961 Corvette, an original paint conv. that was a 283 dual quad car (with removable hardtop & wonder-bar radio).Stryker- The first gun I bought was when I was in my 20's, baking at 2 am at the family biz. I bought it in a small gunshop on layaway. Maybe, if you could do layaway ,it would be easier to acquire. The moss shotgun is a multi cartridge shotgun. The shot spreads out when you fire. It's hard to miss your target. Aiming is not incredibly important. Just point and fire. No time is wasted sighting your coyote target. A range is a good bet. I was taught at the police range. It is horrible to see a critter of your's grabbed! They are so fast! And they know you are not fast enough, so they snatch and run.
Loud noise helps to spook them. Sorry for you and your chicky.
I am not letting my next big dog out of the yard! However, the chickens and coyote are on the outside of the yard.
