We talk quite a bit about tactical stuff around here but hunting is a very different world especially when it comes to the shotgun. Join me today as I give you a rapid fire overview of the shotguns adaptability and utility as a sporting arm and something that has been putting meat on tables for a very long time.
Today I also name Kenny MacAskill as “assclown of the day” for recommending the the release of a terrorist who killed 270 people by blowing up a Pan Am aircraft over Scotland in 1988. Hero of the day is granted to the “Friends of the NRA” by request of a listener for their program called “Youth Educational Summit” (YES) which allows our youth to visit our nations capital and learn about our history and of course the 2nd Amendment.
