Did we really need to dig this one up and bring it back to life?

Bad form Elmer. You just resurrected a thread that has been dead for nearly a year. On your first post.

Stop by the introductions thread and try to redeem yourself . By the way, welcome to the forum.

(Don't be offended by what I said here- Not trying to be harsh.)

also forum protocols require you to buy the forum a birthday cake when you bring a thread back to life over a year old!

BTW, welcome to the forum and stop over in the introductions section and say hello!

1) Blammo Boomers Blank (Let them know this isn't going to end well)
2) Hornet's Nest
3) Tri-Dent
4) Power Punch
5) Rubber Rocket
6) Pit Bull (I make it here, they aren't leaving my house vertically)

Of course another friend during the discussion said load up all with Pit Bull ammo. My concern is coming from my room and stopping an intruder in my house I will inevitably point towards my soon to be baby's room.
I am in LE and have used the methods you are discussing.
1. Force on force means using force equal to or greater than the opposition force so the use of 'less than lethal' force against lethal force would be a FATAL tactical error!
2. We use 'less than lethal' methods ONLY when we have lethal force back up!
3. Load it with nothing smaller than #2 bird shot and nothing larger than #4 buck shot. BB shot is the best all purpose size for general home defense.
Hope this helped!
Jim
