Which means it won’t be legal.

Realistically, armor is rifle territory.
If you only have a scattergun, aim for the soft parts, joints and unarmored bits such as hands and feet. Stick to shot loads for this, that’s buck not bird.

Rifles eat armor like pacman eats dots.
Get sparks off a chickenplate, change your point of aim to a softer area, such as those previously mentioned.
