About Not Having To Aim A Shotgun

Bob Mayne of the Handgun World Show has a nice video up that destroys the myth that all you have to do is point the shotgun in the general direction of the intruder and fire. He shoots his Remington 870 from 5 yards - a good inside the house distance - and gets a nice 3 inch group.

Bob has an excellent podcast that is one of my weekly listens. It is part of the Gun Rights Radio Network and you can find the show homepage here.


  1. From 5 years? Should that have been "from 5 yards"?

    1. Thanks for catching that! I am the worst proof-reader ever.

  2. John, thanks for mentioning my video and podcast. I made this video because it's so frustrating to hear the uninformed talk about the "can't miss shotgun."

    Just talk to any skeet shooter or wing shooter about whether it's possible to miss with a shotgun. Of course, Joe Biden says we don't even have to hit anything. Just point it in the air and pull the trigger, right? - Bob Mayne, HandgunWorld Podcast
