    The myth I'm busting in this video series is that you don't have to aim a shotgun but can simply Rambo it from the hip.

    Based on comments received, I shot a "Chapter Two" showing an example of hip shooting and aimed shooting, using 00 Buck.

    In a self-defense situation, when you are using 00 Buck, inside your home, where you do NOT want stray pellets penetrating into other rooms, or even other houses, you must aim your shotgun, that is, shoulder it and sight it, not simply rely on point-shooting from your hip.

    So, here you go. As far as I'm concerned the myth is busted.

    What do you think? Take a look and let me know.

    I wonder why magnum shot loads pack a bigger wallop than soft shot or chilled shot. After all it is only a harder pellet (lead with more antimony added) to my knowledge. I couldn't see the edge of the box to see box to see the load info tho.

    Shooting a shootgun at point and shoot range is just like shooting a pistol. One hads to practice this act with the weapon to become proficient
    I don't see where you dispelled any myths at all.
