    I prefer 00 or 1 BUCK for SD.

    I see CT scans on so many people hit with bird shot. As nasty as that looks, the penetration is not very deep, on the torso, for the vast majority of BBs.

    Yep.

    At 10 feet, I've seen what birdshot can do, and if I've seen it, the outcome wasn't favorable for the victim.

    While the small pellets can definitely penetrate far enough to do serious damage, many of them barely move an inch or two subcutaneously. Pellets entering at an angle more parallel than perpendicular tend to slow down much faster in the skin.

    Some states prohibit shooting fleeing felons.




    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    In the time it takes the brain to make the decision to shoot and actually pulling the trigger, the perp could turn around.

    Kinda reminds me of when an old farmer shot me in the backside with rock salt in '66 when I was young and dumb and trying to steal some peaches from his orchard.
    Stung like a mother!
    Then my dad gave me another stinging I still remember
    Some think the whole rock salt charge is an urban myth.
    I can tell you it is not.
    With a black powder muzzle loader fowler and the right charge at a close enough distance it is effective.
    I was wearing a bathing suit trunks and no shirt, farmer was less than 10 yards away.

    That's a lesson learned the hard way.

    You might think that, but you would be sorely mistaken. I've seen an attempted suicide with a shotgun loaded with birdshot under the chin. The fool walked out of the hospital several weeks later. Of course, he was missing most of his face, but otherwise he was fine.

    I took a shotgun course once. The instructor was a long time police officer and LEO forearm instructor. In the classroom portion when discussing ammo selection, he did a google search for something along the lines of photos of wounds of birdshot and buckshot on humans after shootings.

    He asked the class if we noticed anything about the dozens of different photos we saw of each. Some people pointed out things like noting the different spreads and pellet counts, but going back through them, he started taking a tally for the number of people who had been shot with each, and putting a tick in one of two columns, alive and dead. All the birdshot photos were like the one here, a person standing up or sitting down in a hospital at a crime scene, showing their wounds to the camera. The buckshot wounds were all photos taken of dead bodies, taken at the medical examiners office.
