    Hopefully you're using 00 or 000 buck!

      As long as it has the desired effect.

        The guy standing and showing the effects after pulling his shirt off? Somehow that seems inadequate.
        The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
        The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

          If he is standing, mission is not accomplished or threat eliminated.

            NF1E, Don’t mean to throw stones but please tell me you don’t reload on the same bench as your transmitter gear is located. During my army days I worked on hi powered xmitters. The building where I pulled my shift had so much stray RF, that the lights stayed on with switch off. The one megawatt xmitter was scary to say the least.

              I won't tell you then. It's on the same bench but never powered up when loading.
              My Collins Kw-s1 and 75-a4 are off to the side and again they are not powered up when loading is in progress.
              Highest power I operate is only 1KW anyway.
              Thanks for the warning.
              Must have had to be careful of rf burns anywhere near the plate of that monster.

                We had “radio free Europe “, “radio in American Sector”, AFN Berlin in the same place. Scariest thing I ever did was changing the warning lights on a half wavelength AM antenna that was hot. We had to jump from the shack containing the huge matching transformer to the antenna. Touch the ground and the mast and you were charcoal.

                  The largest output gear I have would be less that what was being used to drive the amplifiers that you are talking about.

                    In all fairness, the picture I posted was not completely fair as there is too many factors in question without the ability to know them all.
                    My comment was as is know that buck is generally accepted to be more effective for self defense, the guy in that picture could have been beyond what I would consider a legitimate self defense distance, he could've been ambushed by someone that didn't know about shot spread at range, could've been a sawed off with low power rounds, who knows. I won't post graphic images, but I have seen photos of up close birdshot fatalities and there is generally a huge hole and a little stray shot around it.

                      My pastor got a 12GA pump to protect his family and himself, and all he's been able to get are birdshot target loads. Hopefully that will be effective at "inside the house" distances.

                        At indoor distances it should. At least he got protection, he can get a couple boxes of good ammo soon, that won't break the bank. In the meantime he should become familiar with it, go to the range, and do a little training.

                          He's been on our land trying out his new shotgun. It's a new Savage pump and it's a good one, I like it myself. We set up a target at "large room" range. Woe betide the leftist who invades his house and/or threatens his wife and him.
