Home Defense


I’m not much of a shotgun guy but seems to me that at inside the home distances shot will not be spreading out very much. Slugs are going to have significant over penetration issues if you have housemates or close neighbors to worry about. Though 00 buck can go through walls pretty easily as well from the tests I have seen. I would probably choose #1 buckshot if I decided to set my shotgun up for home defense.
