Does ANYONE in the mainstream media hunt!? Or know anything about hunting?! Why do I bother asking?!
"Buckshot, Buckshot, Buckshot," the term, refering to the Cheney hunting accident, appears everywhere from The Washington Post to the St Louis Post Dispatch. So PLEASE listen up: if Mr Arrington had been hit in the face and chest at thirty yards with buckshot he would have died INSTANTLY.
Instead he was hit with BIRDSHOT….OKAY!! These are very small pellets powered by a light charge of powder designed to kill small, light-skinned game like quail. Buckshot gets it’s name because it’s designed to kill 200 pound deer. Army Rangers and Marines use Buckshot loaded shotguns for close range combat.
