Shot loads? If you're gonna bust a cap on a dog, might as well be a HP. You will get into just as much trouble.
I carry either my Glock 26 or S&W 686 (4 in) in a Jackass rig when riding. Got pulled over Two many times when I was working, carrying in an SOB holster. Cross draw was against dept. policy, had to get speckel permission. I'm sure now that I retired, some NJ State Gestapo agent....I mean trooper will take great umberance with me if I display my gun. Sometimes I think, if some AH can see a Glock26/27 size gun in a SOB, he's too friggin close and I should be allowed to shoot him:-)

You can't have just one
