I’d brace the chair against the door if I really needed to take care of business, but a handgun works too.
The new M26 12-Gauge Modular Accessory Shotgun System, otherwise known as MASS, is an under-barrel shotgun attachment for the M16/M4/AR-15 series of rifles. It’s the same concept of the Masterkey, giving soldiers the ability to use their rifle as a shotgun for close quarters combat, breaching barriers or for non-leather use. The MASS improves upon the Masterkey however as it features a detachable magazine and can be used as a stand-alone shotgun when fitted with a detachable pistol grip and buttstock.

Here’s a cool way to carry a concealed gun for self defense, althought I doubt those little 6mm bullets will do much harm, might poke out an eye or two though. While this isn’t an official lighter from Zippo, it sure is cool. The gun is fired by rolling the flint wheel and the bullets fire out of a tiny barrel where the wick usually is, just don’t forget it’s a gun when you’re lighting up. The Zippo gun lighter pictured sold at auction back in 2006 for a whopping $6,810.
After the announcement of the Mossberg 500 Chainsaw a lot of zombie preppers immediatly added it to their list of must have zombie killing weapons.

It’s hard to aim with, yes you should still aim with a shotgun, and I’d imagine it wouldn’t be optimal for fast follow-up shots. It’s does look cool though.
