Birdshot for Long-Range Defense?


Birdshot for Long-Range Defense?

(Image: Screenshot from video)

Everybody knows that birdhot is not effective at long range. Right? I mean… everybody knows that, yeah?

Hm, guess not. Paul Harrell got a question from a viewer asking about it, so he made a video to demonstrate just how effective one could expect birdshot to be on a human-type “meat target” at ranges of 50 and even 100 yards.

His results? You be the judge.

Just kidding. Bird shot sucks at long range, although it will most certainly knock the snot out of anyone hit with it at close range.

Doubt me? That’s cool, I don’t mind. Watch the video to see for yourself.¬†Enjoy.
