I recently got back from a personal defense event in Illinois, co-sponsored by Taurus International and Winchester Ammunition where we tested a variety of guns and ammunition at Winchester's handgun range.

We started the day with a couple of product seminars and then dove right into several gelatin demonstrations that really showed how well the two companies products perform together.

The Bonded PDX1 line uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. It's engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.

During the gelatin demonstration we shot seven different PDX1 loads, including the highly talked about
PDX1 410. We tested it out of The Judge at several different distances and the results were lethal every time.

If you haven't kept up with this new product, it features a distinctive black hull and black oxide high-base head and combines three plated Defense Disc™ projectiles and 12 pellets of plated BB shot. It's the ideal personal protection load for short range engagement with the performance needed to stop threats. Another
cool feature about this load is that it's also suitable for varmint hunting and pest control.

After learning about the products and watching the
gelatin demonstrations, it was time for everyone else to test out the guns and ammo themselves. Check out Kristin Hunt at the range. She'll take out anything that gets in her way...paper targets, watermelons, steel plates, water bottles, you name it....she'll shoot it.

And I can assure you that she would be fine, if she was ever put into a threatening situation, due to the knowledge and experience she's gained while shooting and spending time at the range.
