In 2024- I am going to change up my training a little. I decided to put on hold 5.56 training for this year.
I decided to train with my A300 Beretta Patrol for self-defense and the what-if scenarios!!!
The Why: This is all theory-based.
If the threat is wearing body armor, I hit the threat with a 1oz slug; it will be enough to make the threat pause because of the force generated by the slug. My next two rounds will be 00 buckshot. I think 00 double-aught buckshot will hit the threat hands and parts of the upper body that are not protected with armor. Three rounds- already shot from 7 total rounds - the last four rounds are a slug, 00 buck double-aught, slug, and double-aught buckshot, and a slug on my Matchsaverz. If needed, I will transition with . 1911.45
I think, why not use my Shotgun instead of my 5.56? My Shotgun is accurate up to 50 yards- when in the hell, if ever, will I need to engage a threat from that distance? Yes, I know Shotgun is a hungry beast.
Let me know your thoughts-- I am too old to have hurt feelings, lol.
