    #4 in 12 Ga. .45s are next up if needed. If that's not enough I'm dead.

    Any they miss will fester. Pain on pain. My Mom related visiting a friend in the hospital before WWII. In the next bed was an oyster poacher who had numerous angry festering red whelps on his back. Each with a black spot in the center. The owner of the oyster bed must have had the range on this guy. Broke the skin good but didn't kill him. Maybe he had done this before. In those days, the poacher was the bad guy.
