    Nothing wrong with a 12 gauge as it is I own several (been thinking of getting a 10 gauge)

    but it doesn't hurt to test the waters from time to time even with the smaller stuff.

    Back for round 3, I see. I have to hand it to ya, you're a persistent buggar. That's for sure.

    Someone start the clock. :-)

    AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Not again:nono::deadhorse::bang::silly:,... 410 is fine, if that's all you have, so is birdshot,... so is a sharp stick I suppose. NEXT!

    I have been thinking of some testing with a dull stick. Of small diameter. ( A DSSD as it were) I think with the right technique and the stars and moon in proper alignment I could take someone's eye out. Sadly, it would probably be my own. Even though it's a small target.

    I could carry more sticks and there would be less chance of self impalement if I stumble and fall. And dull sticks are easier to find. Also, a small, dull stick could be explained away by saying I'm an orchestra conductor. Or in a nod to the just finished Olympics I could say I'm the second leg of a retroadventure relay race team.

    What do you think?

    CPJ already tested the sharp stick vs .380 on a water melon. He's got it on video.....

    I think 22 shorts are terribly under rated! :up:

    (and the 870 would need to pay a visit to a gunsmith for barrel work)


    I couldn't help but notice that you are defending the use of a Taurus .410 for self defense right out of the box but you feel that an 870 needs some "barrel work" to make it capable.

    Well yeah it would need to have a cylinder choke for slug shooting without messing with trajectory and deforming the slug.

    Yep, and just as ignorant of basic shotgunning as before. Slugs are already WAY under bore size, so they will even fit through full chokes without distortion.
