A friend of mine carries a revolver half the time, and a 1911 the other half. The only thing that he does consistently is load the gun with a single shotshell (snakeshot) either in the chamber or in position 1 of the cyllinder. Is this a good idea? I have my doubts, but he's an older gun, very well-educated and experienced that has trained with all the pros, including my hero Clint Smith. He claims that he can shoot the first shot while finding his front sight, and will have a good chance of hitting the guy. He then can follow up with 4 or 7 rounds of Hornady JHP at his discretion. So.... is he crazy, or crazy like a fox?
