Shotguns for home defense make perfect sense. There are several models of shotguns designed especially for protection. Our ammunition is too. We did extensive tests to find the best loads. Our Personal Defense® brand offers options designed to stop threats immediately, while minimizing the danger to loved ones in the house. We didn't overlook any details developing these special loads. We patterned hundreds of rounds, tested penetration in wallboard and ballistic gelatin to make sure these were the best we could offer. Available in 12 and 20-gauge options. PD132 00 - 9 pellet 00 Buckshot with FLITECONTROL® wad; PD156 4B - 34 pellet 4 Buckshot; PD256 4B - 24 pellet 4 Buckshot.
