    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    And I agree with taking back the steel shot. Around here the only thing you would buy that for is duck or goose hunting and it sucks even for that. Just not allowed to shoot lead over water.
    I fully agree about birdshot's lack of immediate take down capabilities. I would also add that proper training trumps weapon and ammo.

    Go and shoot your weapon frequently. Take HD courses if available, and practice loading/reloading in the dark. Have a plan of action.
