Bird, prowler, bad guy in the hall, 12 gauge beats them all.

This argument is old as mud. The wizdom of the old hunters, prevails. Use enough gun is not just
a catch-phrase. Personally, for the type of door-
kicking room-to-room close combat being encounterd, give me an automatic 12 gauge shotgun! We love OO Buckshot! It's good for carom-shots off floors, and around corners, too.

This is the same argument made over 40 years ago in Southeast Asia - a .223 round from an M-16 versus a .306 round from an M-14

In Iraq? I'll take the .306 thank you.
