It would if they shot at you first.

unless you were going to shoot for the purpose of deer hunting you probably won't see many shotguns out at FSC...Have you checked out the rose lake range?

I love my Mossberg 12 guage pump with the 18.5" barrel; see if there is one you can try out. If you don't have time to reload, it should make an excellent club. I also think shotgun ammo will be one of the last kinds of ammo to be more tightly regulated, as it has such strong ties to hunting.

I've never really felt the need for much target practice with that shotgun, though i may just be bashful.
