    Just heard the most retarded line of logic for using .410 as a HD load

    Just got back from the local gun shop and was shooting the shit talking to another customer. We got on the subject of home defense shotguns and gauges, to which he looked at my Mossberg (in 12 ga) and said:

    I just looked at him and did a combination of :hsugh: + :ugh:

    I asked: "Seriously? Isnt there only 4-5 buck shot in each shell? That doesnt seem like enough shot, or muzzle velocity for and effective defense load. .410 would certainly not be my first choice for a HD load."

    He kept persisting that .410 is a perfectly fine guage for HD. I ended up giving up trying to talk some sense into him.


    EDIT: Yes I is rearded for speeling retartded wrong, morans.

    should have just asked him what he was going to do if the .410 DIDN'T make them run away, and pissed them off instead.

    I think Panzer's onto something here.

    Him: "oh, well, .410 will hurt him, that'll make him run away."
    You: "And what happens if and when there's the one guy who is hit, hurt, and all it does is make him mad? What do you and your .410 do then?"
    Him: "[vaporlock]"

    I hear Ruger is coming out with an SR410, it's gonna be the slimmest handgun chambered for .410, I'll probably pick one up for open carry.

    all arguments aside, lack of recoil for followup shots is a factor to take into consideration.

    i don't know about .410 vs 12ga but i am of the understanding that 12ga and 20ga have the same terminal ballistics at defensive distances.

    i personally use .22 shotshells for HD. the .410 has too much kick for myself, and my wife. The the .22 shotshells are more then enough to put lots of hurt into a bad guy.

    If I am shooting someone, it is because they are threatening my life, or the lives of my family. If I am going to shoot someone, it will be with a round/gauge that I KNOW will kill someone. If there is any doubt in my mind (.410, while perfectly able to kill someone, is not consistent) then I will not use it. Its that simple.

    I in no way claimed that .410 would not be able to kill a person. You guys are ridiculous.

    Hey, if you live in the country, the judge is fantastic for snake defense. Which, being spring means the bastards are everywhere.

    maybe a .410 slug would be more effective?

    You don't shoot to kill.

    At least not when you give your statement :naughty::hsugh:

    I was shooting to stop the threat because I was in fear for my life.

    This is possibly the most aggravating thing to argue with people here.

    I was in fear of my life/limb/family so I shot to stop the intruder/killer/murderer/robber, etc. I think I feel ill, can I get some medical attention, I want that guy arrested/charges pressed, I want to speak to my lawyer etc etc

    SHould be like this.

    Call police say you were involved at a shooting at X location
    Call lawyer tell him what happaned
    Police arrive say nothing and give them lawyers number to talk to lawyer
