If someone is shooting at you from a car, I would think that shooting back at them would be self defense

Depends on the state. In many states, the fact that you actually came out of your house to engage the drive-by car takes you out of the self defense category.

I was thinking of shooting back out of a window. I wouldn't be going outside, but I see what you are saying.

You've been watching WAY too many gangsta movies.

I have Winchester Ranger Low Recoil, 8 pellet 00buck loads for HD out of my 18" cylinder barreled Winchester 1300. If need be, I have Ranger Low Recoil 1oz slugs. If I need more power than that, I have Brenneke Black Magic Magnum slugs.

Even if they stayed in the house as that poster mentioned, the SD aspect probably would not be considered as the car is most likely on the street, which is not one's property. If the car is driving off, I am sure most prosecutors would try to nail a person to the wall for being a vigilante, especially if the shots missed and struck something else.

This is a very well written analysis of a wide range of self-defense ammo. The author covers shotgun rounds at the end and makes a compelling case for #1 Buckshot.
