    I would too, and for all the same reasons, but an AR loaded with expanding bullets will work fine so long as it runs reliably.

    You should be able to put all your slugs onto a human-sized target without any problem at 100 yards.

    I encourage you to bring along a selection of tactical and hunting slug loads from a variety of manufacturers to see how they group from your particular shotguns. Both my Mossberg 590 A1 and my Remington 870 have very specific preferences between different manufacturers' slugs, with groups from the same gun varying 3-X in diameter between different manufacturers' slugs. I predict that each of your shotguns will have very specific preferences, and they probably won't be for the same slug from the same manufacturer.

    With a handgun, they are extremely dangerous up to 100 yards, possibly further.
