For home defense, if penetration is an issue, I usually recommend EITHER #4 bird (AKA turkey shot) or #4 buck. The pellets are heavy enough for the job but not so heavy as to be over penetrating. I prefer #4 Bird personally.

Be sure to look as this ... You may want to do your own tested to confirm what works best for you and yours.

JCMS posted it and I feel it offers some good info. Just keep this in mind...the distance across a 12 foot square room is the distance you will likely be from the BG, unless the confrontation occurs in the yard and then we open up another can of worms as the possibility of collateral damage came increase by several factors. Remember .....AIM for the center of the BG and double tap...then assess the situation. If there are other BGs, repeat until they are stopped.

Kevin, it's amazing. i can't be any more happier with it. Rayz and I took it out today for the first time along with his mini-14 and fired off a few rounds and i love it. no problems at all, shot at least 5 different types of ammo through it at 7 and 14 yards. at this point the hornady critical defense 00 buck is the most impressive. with sellier & bellet #1 buck being... less than satisfactory i should say (HUGE spread at 7 yards) still looking to try out that Federal #1 with flight control wad though.

 

Bart, The Girlfriend hasn't had a chance to shoot it, but she's not extremely frail and the recoil on this thing is great, at this point i think she'll be able to handle the 00 loads just fine. So i think I'm gonna go ahead and stick with 00 for HD at the time being (maybe federal #1 if i can get a hold of it)

 

Stray- Didn't find any of the #1 i wanted but im still looking at ALL the other stuff they've got!

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
