“Dragon’s Breath” 12 Gauge Shotgun Shell

The 12 gauge shotgun is one of the most versatile firearms on the planet. One reason 12 gauge shotguns can serve so many purposes is the vast array of different shotshells you can stuff into them. If you own a 12 gauge scattergun (and if you don’t, what’s wrong with you?) there are some types of ammo you simply must own and shoot — a lot – through your shotgun.

The “Dragon’s Breath” round is a low-pressure shotshell that fires a pyrotechnic payload and looks like golden fireworks blazing from your shotgun’s muzzle to about 40 yards or so downrange. Dragon’s Breath shells won’t cycle semi-autos, and have to be single loaded.

The “Dragon’s Breath” shells are dangerous, and you must practice the same level of gun safety as you would at all other times. Also, you must take extra fire-related precautions, like not firing into dry vegetation, and having some fire control methods available. Most commercial or public ranges probably don’t allow “Dragon’s Breath” shells. These are pretty much for use on private land only, with permission of course.

And lastly, take safety measures to ensure that you have only “Dragon’s Breath” shells in the area, and not any other type of shotgun ammo. Mistakenly launching a slug into the night sky when you thought it was a “Dragon’s Breath” could have tragic results.
