    •  I Would Not Even Attempt the Shot (none)
      I wouldn't take a shot at a rabbit 50 yards from me with #7 1/2 shot if I was using a 12 gauge. When I shoot any nonhuman animal I want it to die, right then. I absolutely hate to wound an animal, and that's what I would expect at that range.

      I am not saying you can't do it, but I know I can't, and I have expended a small mountain of ammo from .22 to .50 BMG, once had three hot M60 barrels at the same time when I was running it off so we didn't have to count it.

      •  Well, (none)
        I don't know really what to say to you.  But I've done it regularly since I was old enough to hoist this particular shotgun (and that was a long time ago), and it's not an exceptional feat; which again leads me to not knowing what to say to you.
