    Mostly in bad taste. I guess the PC crowd could be satisfied, if a
    number of crazed white crack heads were included in the spread.

    Target practice with improper procedure does create risks.

    Explain what in the "proper procedure" creating risk was done in using this target?

    I'm actually surprised that nobody has stepped in to explain this to me by now.

    Center mass.
    Not necessarily training for head shots but for accuracy. Squares on a range target are common.

    Do the cops have your mugshot? If they do, who's fault is that?

    Notice the delineation of accuracy in the boxes. No such thing exists for the head shots.

    Oh good, you're back....Explain what in the "proper procedure" creating risk was done in using this target?

    There was no attempt to gauge accuracy, as noted above; it was a head shot exercise. If you cannot see the inherent problems, that's your shortcoming and I see no need to explain it to those capable of understanding.

    So, tell us why you really support it.
