Recently there was a pretty good discussion on the relative merits of the Browning A-5 type shotguns. Half way though, our bottom member of the food chain said it was all useless because the "shotgun wasn't magazine fed and could not be broke down". Since I'm supposedly on Ignore, could someone explain to him that we don't alway's think of killing our fellow man? Browning A-5's and other shotguns are used for sport hunting. Birds, rabbit's etc. .22 Rifles and pistols are usually bought for recreation, not to build a "Can" for to shoot someone. Around my homestead we have informal plinking sessions all the time. It's not remotely related to "combat". It's called "Fun". John should try to get some of it in his life. He might not be so bitter about himself.
