A great weekends shooting

Team- I had a blast this weekend. I was defending my mates vineyard against a feathered onslaught, and shot 15 rabbits, 4 pigeons and literally dozens and dozens of starlings and blackbirds. I fired off 450 rounds of 12 gauge, and at one stage had to give it a break as the heat haze from the 1100 made it impossible to point the gun properly. Great fun!

"I fired off 450 rounds of 12 gauge"
So it safe to say there's nothing left of the vineyard?

I'd use my 1100 on blackbirds, but then my neighbors wouldn't have a birdfeeder... ...

So many birds...So little time...

So once again, you do realize that I hate you for having such a target-rich environment, along with critters dumb enough to stay after the first 1-449 shotgun blasts.
