12 Gauge Bean Bag Shot Instructions

BEAN BAG SHOT INSTRUCTIONS

1. The 12 gauge Bean Bag Shot is designed to be non-penetrating and is intended to distribute its impact force over a wide surface area. Upon impact, the bag collapses and conforms to the target, distributing its energy over the area of the bag.

2. * Warning: - It is dangerous to place 12 gauge shells in a larger gauge gun.
- These shells must not be used in guns with chambers shorter than 2 3/4 inches.

3. * Danger: - Do not shoot at people. May be lethal or cause serious injuries.

4. THIS AMMUNITION WILL NOT CYCLE SEMI-AUTOMATIC SHOTGUNS. A SHOTGUN FRONT BEAD THAT PROTRUDES INTO THE BORE MAY CUT THE BAG. REMOVE THE BURR WITH A HONE STONE. FOR USE IN CYLINDER, IMPROVED CYLINDER OR RIFLED BARRELS ONLY. DO NOT USE IN FULL OR MODIFIED CHOKE SHOTGUNS AS REDUCED VELOCITIES OR A BORE OBSTRUCTION MAY OCCUR.
