Son is really starting to get into shotguns (Five Stand in particular), a subject where, outside of the tactical uses thereof, I’m really pretty ignorant. I’ve been doing some research, and I wanted to share a couple of the sites I’ve found that might help out others in a similar position:
- 20 Most-Asked Shotgun Questions–of particular interest to me was the chart on the expected pattern size for various chokes at various ranges.
- Clay Targets Online: Descriptions with pictures of the various shotgun sports plus a locator service to find places to shoot.
Interestingly enough, firearms forums such as The High Road proved least useful in this particular research, since the questions asked there tend to be too specific.
Next up, shotshell reloading.
