Default Home defense

Just got an email from cheaper than dirt and they had some new 12 and 20 gauge shells along with what else they were advertising. Anyone have any experience with these?

Lightfield is a reputable company, but it sounds like this is a less lethal round. I will never use a less lethal round in home defense. Because 1 pointing my gun and telling the bad guy to drop is warning enough. if I need to pull that trigger the bad guy is leaving in a body bag.

Couldn't agree more, if it gets to the point where I have to pull my firearm, there will be no warning shots, it's game over!

Yes, Lightfield is a very reputable manufacturer. No, you should not be buying Less-Than-Lethal ammo IMO -- shoot to stop someone when you need to but do not rely on gimmicks to do it.

If you have an over-penetration concern, address that. How?
  1. Hit your target
  2. Use lighter pellets (Remington #2 Shot minimum)

I have #4 loaded up in mine, I just wanted to know what people would think. I completely agree, if I'm shooting, I'm killing. That's how I am with hunting and that's how I'll be with HD

i wouldnt waste my time or money on that. if you have to pull a gun then at least have it loaded with something that will do the job, efficiently. and legally could cause you issues were the need to arise, a gun, by definition is lethal force, so if you have the need for lethal force, then a lethal load is what you should use.
