  •  Cheney's shot simulated (none)
    Check out this low-tech style video with a mockumentary feel to it. The "avid skeet and trap shooter" narrating the video explains the effects of the 28 gauge shotgun that the VP used.  Courtesy of the Corpus Christ Caller Times that originally reported the accident.
    •  This was very interesting (none)
      for the uniformed such as myself. He describes the "pattern" of shot and shows where it would have hit from 90 feet away. The head, neck, and upper torso are all hit.

      He does not address the issue of whether Cheney could have actually been that far away or not, however. Would the pellets have been able to penetrate from such a distance or is it as so many suspect, and Cheney was actually a LOT closer?
