its like holding a hand of sand.
if im 2 feet away, odds are all the sand will hit me if you threw it at me.
but if i ran away from you and you tried to hit me with all of it, if i was 10-15ft away, odds are none of it would hit me and it would just blow away in the wind. the sand would disapate.
put it in a baggy and throw it at me, it would hit me. the bag being in this case...the sand that was choked to travel further than normal.
welcome to shotgunning.

take a flashlight.
shine it 2" from the wall. see that little spot? (full choke being shot close to the gun.)
go outside and shine the light at a tree in someones yard across the street. big wide light pattern and a little dim, right? (cyl choke being shot at long distance.)

Well, Winds and I both ended up with some extra work, and I've been arguing with idiots on the side. Don't know about everyone else.

I would like to add to this. I think it is advisable to blow your nose after shooting. That's what I was taught and I think it's a good idea.

I have been madly getting ready to leave on a trip. I just worked 8 days in a row and now I have a gazillion things to do to get ready to leave before dawn on Monday morning.

ahhhh...its a holiday weekend.
forgot.

on 25....empty hulls might have a small trace of lead on them. thats why we pick up hulls and you guys just leave them. but for those that reload and want to pick up theirs....wash before you eat or touch your face.

you have a wedding to go to, right winds?

Wedding in Jamaica from Monday through Friday. Then I fly to Florida to spend a weekend with Canebrake and his wife. Then home on Monday.
