It's funny this forum is still going on I would be willing to bet that most of the people that post on this forum cant hit a clay target crossing at 40 yard 50% 0f the time I been hunting many moons and cant believe how sh@ty most hunters shoot.

I'll take that bet, I'll put 5k on it, you handle the logistics

Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,

Plug it, play it, burn it

I think they said to listen for the whistle the spinning wads make as they leave the muzzle and since the speed of sound is constant and the shot slows down then there is ample time for evasive maneuvers.

So whens the shoot off and are you using 20's or 28's?

It has to do with the amount of pellets per load. It's more about oz per load. Energy is the same in in gauge given that the velocity and shot size are the same.

Am disappointed you didn't appreciate the "humor".

But, hey, the dude made a declaratory statement (apparently, unfounded since he crawfished) and Jehler called him on it. Appears his alligator mouth has overloaded his spring lizard anus.

Most peoples "hit ratios" are about as reliable as their "fish stories" . Witnesses, I want Witnesses..................

We know the 12 ga is better because the guys on the hunting programs that take 12 shots to knock down 2 birds demonstrate that they are............................ :huh:

Shooting skeet or trap is not much of a challenge, sporting clays can be fun and challenging but instill shoot well over 80% on a new setup. Hunting on the other hand can be all over the place. If its dumping bufflehead it's like skeet for me, no emotion just muscle memory and falling birds, make that a nice drake can or a sprig pinny and forget about it, I can usually count on getting the gun halfway to my shoulder, after that its a crap shoot

And if they were shooting 20's, those twelve shots would have resulted in only one bird, if they were unusually lucky. :eek:

It'll cost me nothing. Cootlover threw down the gauntlet and he's covering all our costs. Right, coot? :biggrin:

By the way, kindly make my airline ticket for First Class.

Jehler you know I am just the opposite I think after shooting skeet, wobble, sporting clays duck's seem to be flying in slow motion that's why I love shooting collard doves ,buffie's, teal they come in at weird angles .You know it would be fun getting all of us trash talker's together to see who really has skills.

End of October I was on Lake Superior smashing bills, buffies, redheads, scoter and oldsquaw crossing and going away at 40 and 50 yards, was sting clean up. Second week of November I'm on the wax lake delta in LA, I went 20 rounds before I hit a bird and they were in my face and cupped, it was embarrassing as hell lol. Day two I got my nerves about me and started shooting alright but hell...

Having heard the LA rodeo report, I've been thinking, "Best hope they don't throw a crossing canvasback."
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
