I have been unable to get out. I will try to fire a few rounds this weekend. I'm very curious about hollow points and personal defense type rounds especially. Don't know yet.

That's a good point about shootin' a lot of 12 gauge shells. Last time I shot up a whole 25 box, I was in high school. The older I get, the less I think recoil relates to masculinity. Now, I really...

Thanks for the reply. I don't want to get laughed out of my hunting party if I take it down to west Texas with some friends of mine. I believe they hunt pheasants and dove. Maybe quail. I guess...
