Main Topic: Shotguns
Shotguns have been discussed before on Gun Guy Radio, but I felt that we could get into the larger discussion of their use in the defensive world as well as their limitations. Many people will try to attach some magical quality to the shotgun as a defensive implement, and oftentimes it just isn’t so. We will first discuss the various shotgun operating methods and then some of the more popular gauges. Then we will delve into some considerations you need to make when choosing the shotgun as your home defense weapon.
Semi-Automatic (Gas, Recoil, Long Recoil, Inertia Operated):
Break-Action (Either Single or Double Barrel):
Revolver Style: Rossi Circuit Judge, and this Russian MT2-255 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MTs-255
Defensive Shotgun Use:-
-Shotguns do go through walls at short ranges a lot more than most people think.
-AR rounds tend to tumble when traveling through interior walls, losing stability and stopping much sooner.
-Shotguns will knock someone back off their feet.
-You don’t have to aim a shotgun: MYTH
-The “Rathole” discussion
-Use of “Cut Shells” or Wax Shells
