This is my first post on the forum, I just singed up today. I've been hearing multiple myths about bird shots. People Say that they will not kill a person even when they're like 20 feet away. What? That just sounds completely fake to me... I mean, I have a Mossberg 500 and I just bought a box of 12-ga 7-1/2'' shot bird shots, so it has about 350 pellets inside of it, and these people are telling me that if I shot someone in my house with it, they would survive and still be able to attack me? It just sounds completely fake to me. I know they're generally weak, yes, but they can't be THAT weak, c'mon. It's 350 pellets of hot lead going at an extremely fast speed. I'll go out and shoot 'em at some 2 liter water bottles tomorrow to see what they do to 'em, but you can't be telling me that these things aren't going to stop someone from attacking me, right?
