    less leathal 12ga.

    my buddy and i were talking about how messed up it is that sometimes people get shot for intruding and they actually sue your butt for excessive force and actually win

    so he came up with wanting to load his 12ga. with less leathal 12 ga. shots...
    now this comes up, how practical is this? what do you guys think a 12 ga. rubber ball shot would do to an intruder? i'd imagine even a rubber ball, if it's flying at you at 900fps, it'd do something bad to you.

    wouldn't that be better if they ever try to sue you, that you did everything you could to shoot less leathal rounds instead of buckshot?


    it'd kinda be sickly funny seeing some dude who tried to break in, getting popped and laying on the ground moaning and squirming when the cops come... just to learn that we used less leathal shots...



    so what do you guys think??

    Henry, the South Africians and the Isralies actually have used much "non lethal" ammo, but rubber still still kill, even the sand bag launchers can kill the right person. Watch the beginning of the movie "The Hunter" with Steve McQueen, he used a 40mm bean bag to deck a guy in the opening.
    Still building bigger and better bombs for your brighter tommrows(aw heck and takeing them apart and demilling them for that tommrow too)

    To be brutally honest, in our society of today, you are gonna be sued for defending yourself.

    Whether you use rubber bullet or lead ones.

    you shouldnt have to endanger yourself by using less effective means of self-defense just to avoid lawsuits. pump 'em full of lead and worry about it later.

    a lawsuit is a very nice alternative to being dead. and as tump said, dead men can't file lawsuits...

    But their family can--that is the sad part.
