So it's pretty safe, and slugs are a no-no for that. Buckshot only.
In New York Buckshot is not allowed for hunting, period. Buckshot can only be used for home defense. Slugs are all I can use, which is fine by me anyway since I'd rather hit the deer at a good distance with a solid shot than hit it in mulitple spots or hope it hits at all past 40 yards.

Yeah I can see how you'd rather have the range advantage in a no rifle hunting region, but here, the deer are so close, it's usually not a problem.
