Home Defense


I've switched my main home defense weapon to an AR pistol since they came out but as far as shotguns go, Louis convinced me in our interview to switch from shot to slugs. While it's true that there's not much spread of buckshot in the distances of a home, that's all the more reason to switch to slugs in my opinion. Over penetration will be there with just about anything so worrying about one slug vs multiple pellets that can “bounce” at angles as they pass through walls, etc. seems a better option. But to each their own, eh? 🙂
