The time has come to open pandora's box and question what Y'all have done? (not the unverifiable things I may have done)
So have Y'all taken your bedside shotgun to the 7 yard line? (got more than 21 feet of hallway inside the house?)
Just how much pattern improvement is there between a 12 & 20 at 7 Yards? (How much more overpenetration does the 12 have over the 20 with birdshot on an interior house wall)
Shotguns are patterned at 30 yards. (Got a clear 90 foot sightline from front to back door?)
I'm purposely leaving the .410 out of this rant since it's basically a 45 ACP handgun that we dropped once we made it to the shotgun at the foot of the bed.
So once you have proven to yourself that a birdshot load from a 20 is as effective in stopping a aggressor inside Home while limiting collateral damage, we are opening Pandora's Box.
So inside the house when things go bump in the dark, make sure that 20's front sight glows in the dark. JMHO.
Now I have an M9 attached to the front of my Blackwater AR Night Sighted 12 590A1, but all the others rooms in my House are empty until the Grandmother of all things & Grandchildren & thier Parents come Home.
Those folks that have a 20 might have wittingly or unwittingly selected a better Bedside combat shotgun than the internet experts have ever taken the time to prove on the 7 Yard Line, more or less in actual unverifiable experience. JMHO.
Note to the namecallers: Post the photos that prove my unverifiable experience wrong, but that still isn't verifiable proof. Yet, Y'all should spend the time on the 7 yard line before you dismiss things offhand. JMHO since I have no experience and don't know nothing.
Beat your own drum.
The longer we live the more we learn that the things we knew were unquestionable have been questioned.
The things we have done can't be done.
The qualifications we have achieved are unachievable.
Yet all this is unverifiable upon the internet.
Want to spend an afternoon at Maggie O'Malley's on the Chess or Checker Board? (I'll even pick up the Guinness Tab?)
Perhaps I give you to much authenticity?

Didn't realize my comments were of such disregard.
Care to refute those disreputable interjections?
RPD you have actual experience, Please interject your perspective on the 7 Yard Line.
I'm waiting to hear both Y'all respected posters explain why I'm A LIAR!
Or perhaps it's time to explain why I'm not universally accepted as a "Truth Teller" that isn't liked for being a whistleblower?
