    My local farm supply store sells firearms and ammunition and they carry the rubber pellet shotgun shells. I could never figure out why I would shoot someone with rubber pellets which could be fatal instead of the real thing. I guess they use them for pest control.

    I assume this was intended to be a clever response?

    If so, it failed.

    And here I was anticipating the "downtown, look for them around 3AM" responses...

    The nuisance bear post took me by surprise. After some thought (I don't have bears, so I hadn't contemplated these things before!) I guess some folks in dense black bear areas may have bears in their trash and may be able to shoot out a window to scare them away but not kill them... but I can't say I have ever really thought about bears and rubber bullets!

    Stay safe, everyone!

    For 12 gauge I like rusty nails.

    If you are not LEO and you fire less lethal at someone, you are guaranteed to have major criminal/civil legal trouble.

    Will those things cycle in a semi-auto, or should they be reserved for revolvers and pump shotguns?

    Exactly. Using a firearm is deadly force. It could get you killed, and it sure will be questionable why you used “less lethal” ammo when deadly force was required.

    Hope your lawyer is on speed dial.
