    I've been peppered too many times to count...BUT...We were dove hunting not quail/pheasant hunting, so you have assigned spots in a field and we were all spaced properly so even if you get peppered the worst that happens is it MIGHT sting a little depending on what kind of load the other person shot, what kind of clothes you had on, and where you got peppered...(~50 yds away)...Saw in the paper last night they claim Cheney was 30yds away and the shot lodged in the other guys heart...gotta wonder wtf kinda loads he was using...that seems a bit excessive to me (for small shot to penetrate that much at that distance)...
    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    Well this didn't take long

    Yes I would have thought #7.5 and certainly nothing larger than #6. Maybe he was using those tungsten alloy pellets?

    We used to get $2 per pellet, but it isn't a way of earning a living that I would recommend

    Yes, my guess would be 6 shot would be the most appropriate for medium sized birds, which is where I believe pheasant/quail fall...still, that has to be on the far end of effective range...anyway, buddy of mine saw a bumper sticker today along the lines of 'Better to hunt with Cheney than ride with Kennedy' *snicker*

    I never heard of a 28 guage shotgun before though......isn't that kind of like a 410? (good thing it wasn't a 10 guage)

    A 28 guage is the size up from .410" 28 lead balls make a pound in weight. You would generally use them for small game like doves and quail.

    The first time I shot a Shot gun, was a sawed off 12 at my best friend's house. Same day as shell to the mouth. Magnum Buckshots were loaded in it. MAN that thing kicked.

    M-14s are a lot easier to manage. I shot that thing one handed.

    Cheney's got a gun,
    the whole world's come undone.
    shot a buddy in the bum.

    The guy (Cheney) only went part way in the public interview yesterday. He claimed responsibility (what a concept!), but he should have went the extra mile and said he lacked adult judgement and shouldn't be trusted in public office, therefore, he submits his resignation.

    That would have made things right.




    Or, he could have invited W hunting?

    Probably why they keep them seperated to begin with....
    Unfortunately, technology does not eliminate human error, "carelessness will kill your buddies", goes the old saying. In the words of veteran US Colonel David Hackworth: "fear, nervousness, excitement and exhaustion numb the mind and cause miscommunication and misunderstandings
    So Cheney being numb to begin with......

    Fratricide

    I don't think Cheney has the moral fortitude to resign, probably not in his portfolio......
