"You can shoot shotgun on your range Mike? Are you talking hip shooting at skeet or something else?"

Well, I've never known a skeet range to have a ceiling....

I'm in Northern Virginia, and a number of the ranges around here have allowed shotguns over the years, but only with slugs or buck shot. This guy was shooting buck shot.


"If you are pointing at something, you are aiming."

I would say no, you are not. Pointing infers general vicinity, while aiming infers precision.

Such as... I'm pointing my handgun at the bad guy. Now I'm aiming my handgun at the bad guy's nose.


"If anyone wants to bust a myth, what about the one that goes "You don't have to worry about hitting innocents if you aim.""

Well, you could film that, but you'd tend to go through a lot of innocents, and they get mighty mad when you shoot them.

I'll let somebody else handle that video, I think it might get a bit costly, in terms of legal fees, and all, not to mention the death penalty potential, for me to get somebody to let me aim at them and others to let me try to hit them too.
