In my training to be a police instructor, optimum range was considered to be 15 yards and max was 25. (with 00 buck)

With slugs, 50. (100 with a rifled barrel)

I paid $250 for my first crate of SKS rifles. I sold them for $50 each and made good money. The reason for AWB is to control competition. Do you really think those idiots in DC care about your safety or the good of the country? If you do I must question your sanity.

That's the logical question that politicians don't ask, because there's no logical way to respond.

I do believe the survival rate from shotguns is much lower than pistols or semi auto sport rifles so it appears our VP wants no prisoners taken. Does that sound liberal to you?
