Hokay, I'mma gun nut, and I recently read a cupla articles about using a Lever Action rifle for Home Defense, and of course the thutty-thutty was mentioned.
(These gun writers, hafta write about SOMETHING, and here's a brand-new idea, and all the rage.) Here I am, reading it, and I get IDEAS.
Now, the Big Disadvantage to this practice, is that thutty-thutty boolits will go through walls, especially interior walls and possibly damage your rug rats, your Mother-in-Law, and other loved ones.
The thought occurs to me, Since I have an ABUNDANCE of Lever Action thuty-thuttys, and handload for them, THAT I could handload some rounds that are more like handgun rounds, with something like JHP bullets, if such are available, at a handgun velocity.
If ANYONE, would care to elaborate, or offer any suggestions to further this worthy project, I'm be interested to consider it. OR, if you think it's a dumbkoff idea, I can TAKE IT.
