One of my employees. He has a Mossberg 500 that his father gave him. He doesn't shoot it much. He was out of shells so he drove out to Farm and Fleet and grabbed a box. Remember, he admits that he doesn't shoot much. The box said 3" Magnum. He had only shot 2 3/4" shells before. He didn't realize that there was a difference. 12 gauge is all you need to know, right? LOL.
Like I said, he doesn't shoot much.
Anyway, the squirrels on his property were bugging him this past Sunday and he decided he was going to kill the little buggars. Did I mention that he had been drinking? Not much, but enough. Obviously. I told him that you place the stock tight into your shoulder, not on your bicep. Also, guns and alcohol don't mix. Ever. And 3" Magnums are overkill for squirrels.
His woman called him a dumbass, too...
Looks to me like he pulled the trigger before he intended to. I hope he learned something. I told him to go get a box of #6 2 3/4s and then call me. Offered to teach him how to properly use a shotgun.
He missed the squirrel.
