You are really out of the FS loop, a three legged frog is supposed to bring prosperity or something good. We have had the frog for quite a while, still waiting for the windfall profits to show up...

Concerning reduced shot loads, rock salt and dimes in a shotgun, for home defence


Hey folks, I was only kidding about the dimes for home defence, I cant imagine anyone thought I was serious. Really

I do load stuff like this but only to shoot from an special barrel and then only at pumpkins and other fun targets on the range, thats all. Heres a shot at the range using some hand loads on a tgt for ranging/pattern testing.

I handload some very nice 2 3/4 inch reduced charge/recoil cartridges in 00 buck and #4 buck respectively. I would never be foolish enough to admit openly that they are to be used for such purposes for legal reasons so I call them my "close range, anti-varmit shot gun shells"

the fact that I loaded them specifically with enough power to penetrate 6-8 inches into humans but not through the hardwood walls in my house is pure coincidence. wink

You know, it'd be really nice if this type of "close range, anti-varmit shotgun shell" was available via a public vendor.

Yeah, my SG has #4 also, but I'm still worried that (God forbid) if anything happens, that 6-month kid next door will catch a few pellets - even though it would have to go through my exterior walls, the other house's exterior walls, and into whatever room he sleeps in.

KNOWING that a round is designed to be stopped by a few sheets of drywall would be one less thing to worry about.
