    270 on a wingshot grouse would be quite comical, and dangerous.

    I find there are a lot of hunters that can't use anything they "Have" or "can get their hands on". They work on the idea of just buying a bigger gun till the muzzle blast is enough to kill the animal.

    No understanding of Ballistics, no idea about anatomy, shot placement or how to sight in a rifle.


    Maybe I am just grumpy cause I missed out on a New Mexico hunt this weekend.

    I know a guy that has only one gun, he hadn't used it for over 40 years, and didn't even realize that it was still loaded till this past Christmas.

    This is a man that knows how to use it???? i beg to differ!

    Many years ago checking guys on a lake heading into moose camp the day before opener. Asked one guy to crack the bolt on his rifle to make sure it was empty but the bolt was seized shut from corrosion. His story was the previous year they'd gotten home from the hunt and were soaking wet from a continuous downpour. He put his rifle away, loaded still and totally forgot about it. We had to hammer the bolt open with a paddle to unload the thing.
    Lots of hunters shouldn't even have one firearm.

    I just took a buddy shooting, he was given guns from his dad and had no idea how to clean them. Lee Enfields are suppose to be quick cycling, not his, it was after I was done taking 50 years of crap off it. After hunting in the rain I was the guy who would clean every gun for the camp, the number of times guys did not even bother cleaning before putting it away 5 years ago was insane.
