    box pigeons is great. imagine a small baseball field you are on home plate and the pigeons come out of traps where the second base is. you gotta drop them before they clear a low fence.
    That actually sounds like fun. I don't think I could just kill for sport. I am not a person that will hoard 100 animals but I wouldn't be able to put my dog down.

    Nah, you want a shotgun for pigeons. Clay, or otherwise.

    I used a Perazzi Mirage choked full and extra full with 3.5 dram remington shells with nickel plated 7.5 shot

    they had something like that in the Nam. a M2 Browning 50 loaded with 50 caliber shot shells. if a vc sniper was in a treelike the chopper pilot would have his gunner spray it with thousands of bird shot and if that didn't do charlie in he'd be naked as a jaybird with a bunch of real pissed off marines or Rangers right there holding some serious firepower

    let me know what that is-I never have heard of a 850 remington.

    I have owned a half dozen or more 870 Remingtons though

    good shotguns, for home defense the Mossberg 500 is slightly better though

    That's more money than I care to spend for a scatter gun. Had an 850, cost was low enough that I didn't care if it got a little beat up, and reliability was excellent.

    I meant 870. I'm sloshed right now.

    Normally I'd say yes, but with the incrementalism slippery slope of the left I'll have to say no. Irrational partisan exuberance steps on rationality society, again.

    Death to Globalists
