Actually it's "kinda funny" you can stand around a professional's shop and ask those sorts of questions without them using you for a patterning test dummy. Maybe the terse response is their way of telling you to get lost. If you talk as literately as you type, they probably think they are dealing with an idiot anyway.Maser said:ok i know im gonna get flamed for this but if u were to use a rifled shotgun barrel to shoot shot just to get a bigger spread aint that no different than having a short barreled shotgun? (under 18 inches)
its kinda funny how whenever i ask professional shooters or gunsmiths how come u need a special liscense to own a short barreled shotgun when a full length shotgun would be more effective at longer ranges i always get the same answer: "a short barrel shotgun only serves one purpose and that is to kill somebody"
That's why the response seems harsh. If you had been here a little longer, you would have noticed that ol Maser is a complete idiot who provides nothing useful. His only posts are non-sensical dribble that annoys rather than inform.Hook686 said:Good Grief :shock: Is this a touchy site, or is this just oneinchgroup's normal response ?
I'm new here , but don't see this thread any more odd than many others I encounter online.
The response just strikes me as rather harsh for a seasoned shotgun world member.
Sounds like a good way to tick off what ever it is your shooting at. Although the purpose for a shotgun is spread. Too much spread and a) you will completely miss smaller targets. b) You will only serve to cause superficial wounds thus ticking the animal off and causing them to charge at you. In your case one can only hope for option B. :lol:Maser said:i think this topic was discussed in another thread somewhere but anyways when ur shooting shot from a shotgun barrel u dont want the shot wad n colum to spin but either way it does a bit so therefore the last thing u want is a rifled barrel which will spin the shot and when it leaves the barrel the centrifical force will cause the shot to spread way more than u want
