What is your self defense load?

Federal HST 147gr and 2-3/4" 00 buck for when I don't have patience

You think you're kidding but I've read stories that when the A10 Tank Killer fires it's Gatlin gun the aircraft does decelerate. So I guess in theory that if it was flying near stall speed and it fires it's gun it could lose lift.:confused:

Unlikely to happen since the gun is primarily used on ground targets which would allow the aircraft to "coast" if you will. I do however recall one "discovery wings" special where an A-10 shot down a helicopter with the gun... a bit overkill i think, but then again cheaper than a missile by long ways.

I had forgotten that the F14 Tomcat has a Gatlin gun too. A cool movie to watch is Final Countdown. Where a modern aircraft carrier goes back in time. F14's vs Zero's. I don't know how the F14's flew so slow.

Vulcan 20mm. Pretty much standard on All USAF fighters these days. The sweep wing design was pretty genius and in the F-14 resulted in one sexy bird.

I agree, unlikely to happen. My "stall" comment was just a theoretically possible thought. I know our A10 pilots are smart enough not to do such a thing.

I've head good things about the Zombie Max ammo. Can't blame them for cashing in on the zombie craze

3 '" chambered Judge using the winchester pdx loads (3) followed by 2 3" slugs with laser grips just to help with the aim.

I was carrying a couple rounds of Critical Defense, followed by PDX1. But I saw the tests from the Critical Duty, which was very impressive. So I changed it. Now Critical Duty follows the Critical Defense. Then a couple hydrashoks before the last couple are PDX1. If I'm still shooting by then, either it's a target rich environment, or I'm having a serious penetration issue.

I've started using Critical Defense and Critical Duty. I've shot this ammo in my Sigs and Glocks and have not had any issues. It shoots as accurately as I can so I've been happy with it. Check it out!
