Jeremy Stafford talks Slugs, Birdshot, or Buckshot for Home Defense

Jeremy Stafford and Mossberg discuss and demo what is best for home defense, slugs, birdshot or buckshot.

Marine Corps veteran Jeremy Stafford and Mossberg team up on the range to show what type of shotgun round is the best for home defense.

Well there is no denying the clear winner in this competition. Not much surprise that birdshot comes in last and buckshot well ahead with just the right amount of penetration and damage.

I would never actually use buckshot to hunt deer but it certainly has come into its own as a defensive round that has some serious stopping power.

Match buckshot with a reliable pump shotgun with Mossberg and you have a formidable defensive firearm suitable for most any emergency situation.
