We always had birdshot rounds in .22 and even some in .357... but is there a such thing for 9mm? Wouldn't be bad for hiking etc. if you happen to run onto a copperhead or rattlesnake that appeared out of nowhere. Anyone know of any?
Technically it is called snakeshot and yes, you can buy it. I just now called one of the S. Calif. chains and they carry it. If my Godforsaken state sells it, yours probably does also. They also have it in 38cal., I used to have some years ago when my former dept. used revolvers (prior to 89)
i have used the cci blazer shotshells in .40 and they are designed to operate in auto loaders. infact they have a big old warning about not for use in revolvers you can find it online for around 5-6 bucks per 10 rounds. it is expensive but is pretty damn good for a pistol shot shell round.
