if you have to stop and think about what you are going to shoot then there is an issue. knowing what is going to come out after you pull the trigger is being responsible shooter. regardless if its at the range or in a defense situation.

I actually do this in my carry guns. I have 3 jhp rounds followed by the rest being fmj. Just in case for some reason the first rounds don't get the job done.
Of course this is no comparison to a shotgun.

That, too, I just don't understand. After three rounds is your concern for over-penetration no longer a problem? Do you no longer need an expanding bullet?

Are you cheap?

I fill every mag to the brim with top-shelf self-defense ammo so I just don't have to think about what the next round is going to be. I probably would only need 2 or 3 rounds, yes. But what if I miss 3 times and still need a man-stopper? Nope, not for me.

I assume the first 3 will do the job but there have been instances where jhp have not been effective at that point I want to know I'm going to penetrate. It also depends on the caliber I'm carrying. My .25 is all fmj and my .45 is all jhp. My 9 is mixed.

I don't know about using different types of rounds in the same magazine. I guess you just need to find whatever rounds work best for your purpose.
I owned a mossberg 500 with a 20 inch barrel and a synthetic stock. I loved it as a home defender but sometimes wished it was only a pistol grip as I live in small apartment and don't need that much range.
My brother in law had a mossberg 500 with a wood pistol grip and pump. Beautiful gun but jammed several times on us over 500 shells.
That's about all I know

When I say three OO and two slugs I mean in the stock mounted shell holder. The mag tube is loaded with all #4 buck. The #4 should take care of any bumps in the night,I have the OO and slugs in the shell holder in case i find myself needing more firepower in a hurry or dude has buddies,possibly in a vehicle? Idk but I feel better with more options one the side of the gun

Police officers will sometimes load different loads in a mag tube, my wifes cousin is an indiana trooper and he usually keeps his 870 loaded with 00 buck, slug, 00 buck, slug and so on. It doesnt hurt anything as long as your gun is designed to use both.

But in my shotgun i got 00 buck in the gun and slugs in the shell holder on my top folding stock.

I also always count my rounds as im firing, even a 30-round mag. I reload when ive still got one in the chamber. My dad taught me that, it keeps you from getting caught with your pants down while reloading because you still have one in the pipe to defend yourself.

Of course the nice feature of a pump shotgun is you can top off the mag tube anytime.

The issues with slugs, you can find it in the house next door our across the street. Last thing you need is to kill your neighbor along with the bad guy.

I wasn't saying that I disagree with loading different types of ammo. I've just never done it personally. And if there is a chance, even a small one, that your first type of ammo might not get the job done, then why use it at all?
