my uncle said he's giving me one of his shot guns, and he said he'll show me how to work it and clean it. my question is what's a better manstopper, slugs or the standard pellet kind(sry don't know the term for the pellet kind lol)? and i believe the standard pellet variety is only good to a certain range, would slugs since it's basically a big bullet be better long distances and how far? and in worst case someone breaks in my house and i have no choice but to shoot, is it bad legally to shoot them with a slug, or legal with only standard ball shells? -thanks Wanna kill these ads?
