    For all those who use birdshot for HD

    This intruder was supposedly shot four times with something called a ".12 gauge" shotgun

    Anyway, I am willing to bet it wasn't loaded with buckshot.

    Clearly, the 12 gauge is inadequate for defensive use. After all, it doesn't start with a '4'....

    "I don't think you can shoot someone who is unarmed," said Tisron, who has a long criminal record and got off parole in October from a third-offense drunken driving conviction. "I was probably there asking for a ride.

    Tisron, 48, was staying at the Paris Motel. His criminal past includes multiple drunken driving convictions, breaking and entering, larceny, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and auto theft. "I've got long hair and tattoos and I just got off parole, so I'm the bad guy automatically," he said.
    This guy is a tool! He has a criminal past of multiple driving convictions, breaking and entering, larceny, aggravated assault and auto theft, but he was just "looking for a ride" inside another man's home. What a joke! He should be thanking God that the homeowner didn't load that 12 gauge with 00 Buckshot or he would be having a nice dirt nap.

    Is it me, or does this guy look like the WWE's Undertaker? If I saw this guy standing in my hallway in the middle of night, I would be "trigger happy" too.

    "TRIGGER HAPPY?" I was unaware that there were RULES that victims had to go buy when they are attacked by a burglar.

    12 Gauge? Low base #8's maybe.

    No birdshot...... 00 buckshot is for me.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    After my own "failure drill" with a rabid coyote (first 2 shots with birdshot failed to stop a 50-pound dog), I would never select birdshot for home defense.

    Its clear that although the old geezer cherished his 2a he had ZERO formal training on selecting the appropriate ballistics for his intended usage.

    One of my fellow Sailors had to put an insurgent out of his miserable existence with a .12guage as he was charging around a clay formation. Lets just say I WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER doubt the power of a .00 Buck vs human flesh. And it still turns my stomach now remembering the sight.

    I dont even use a shotty in SD. If a .45 +P 200grain Corbon cant stop someone then good God put me out of my misery for choosing the wrong round.

    Hmmm maybe birdshot wasn't his first choice, but rather what was handy at the time.
