^^^ yeah, what the hell??! I totally expect name calling(guilty ) from the political forums but geeze...it's buck shot. Besides everyone knows the best home defense round is dragons fire and and an ultralite.

I would recommend the Winchester pdx1 shells. 3 00 buck pellets and a 1oz slug in each shell. They are in 12 gauge or 410. The latter has buckshot and 3 disks per shell. You might want to check your state laws, although every state gives their citizens the right to shoot an intruder, some states have regulations on what has to happen before you can take the shot and keep the situation legal on your part.

i don't believe in giving warning shots, or shooting to wound, or using less than lethal ammo. too many possible problems associated with going those routes.
Exactly, if you choose nonleathal ammo or an adt thing, you don't have the guts to kill a guy, in HD,SD, or otherwise.
