Knowing when to quit is not my strong suit...

...but I managed it today. 2 slugs at 50yds from kneeling, with the good old 870.

I was sorely tempted - but for once, I knew when to say when.

Great callback! Minimizing pattern shift for shotguns is actually a decent part of their marketing, but I've never done one. Maybe one day?

Kotengu, have you got a hold of any of the newest Army Ammo?

Turns shotgun into a rifle, very little drop out to 150yds, I have not shot any of it yet but may get a chance here soon, pretty amazing advance in shotgunning.. They say.

Couldn't see your pics so I can't comment on your Total Devastation of the target

Haven't heard of it - be sure to post when you get a chance to try it!

Stupid photobucket is keeping you from seeing a simple target with a slightly oblong hole in it.

Photobucket isn't anti-gun, just pro-capitalism. They want a bunch of $$$ from you now to keep posting your pictures.

I agree. I don't even rely on Photobucket to support me with evidences.
