My dad used to do his own 12 gauge shotgun defense loads; 0000 buckshot, rock salt and triangular glazing nails as projectiles. Ouch.

what is an 80 year old man doing with a gun anyway, does he even know what he has done?  I see karma just around the corner for the old dog.

Do you know how hard it is to hit a moving target and especially after taking a beating and suffering a broken collarbone. Your damn right he knew what he was doing. It's not like in the movies when shooting a pistol.

No one really knows how you'll react until you're in that situation.
