Excellent find. The intruder was so drunk he didn't know what he was doing, no way of proving he didn't have further ill intentions. He's lucky the guy wasn't loaded with buckshot.

Why did the editor let ".12-gauge" slip in there?

Good to hear the home owner came out ok. I agree he needs to gets some slugs or 00 buck at least.

I think the scum bag was still drunk when he was interviewed by the news paper. He thinks he is the victim. He even says so.

"I've got long hair and tattoos and I just got off parole, so I'm the bad guy automatically," he said.

Are you kidding me? No your the bad guy because you broke into someone elses home. Get it?

Just hope he now doesn't go looking for a payday seeing as how he is the "victim".

reading the article, it sounded more like they interviewed the prosecutor and the BG. I doubt they talked to the victim. Buck shot would have kept the prosecution from getting confused over conflicting stories. atleast the BG had a documented history of alcohol problems and was drunk at the time.
I know, Im just adding fuel to the birdshot if good enough debate.

Here's the key:
Police think the suspect was not more seriously injured because he was wearing heavy clothing that stopped some of the birdshot.
If you have a HD shotty, load it up with defense ammo, not target ammo. Remember, you need to stop the threat. Don't give me that crap about price either. Yes, SD ammo will cost more, but all you're doing is putting a price tag on your safety.

Imagine if this guy had been on PCP. A shotgun holds 5-7 rounds and this guy used 4 already for a drunk. He would have had 1-3 left. What if there had been multiple intruders? One guy took 4, if another takes another 4 and you only have 3, you're f'd!

This should end the debate of whether birdshot is an effective SD shell...
No it will not. Some people are just plain dumb. I have hunted all my life and have seen birds that weigh 2 pounds not die from a shot of birdshot.

Give it a couple days and someone will be right back here touting the virtue of keeping a gun loaded with birdshot for defense like it is some magic bullet.....

Not even slugs do it all the time

Two charged in hunting accident - Canton, OH - CantonRep.com

Scott Boykin, 19, of Green was shot twice with a 12-gauge shotgun slug while hunting deer at 5:20 p.m. on Killinger Road, according to investigators. Boykin was taken to Akron City Hospital and is currently recuperating at home.

Deputies said Boykin and his hunting companions were hunting illegally. Two of the hunters were not wearing the required "hunter safety orange" clothing and all were hunting with a single projectile round, which is illegal in Green.
