I got a lot of interesting feedback when I posted my first video on shotgun mythbusting; namely, busting the myth that you do not have to aim a shotgun but can simply point it from your hip and be assured of accurate shot placement, in a self-defense situation, using 00 Buck.
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.
