Cowboy Blob sez: Oh, as my gun-owning but ACLU card-carrying "progressive" lawyer buddy points out, Vice President Cheney was hunting with an itty-bitty girly man 28 gauge...this fact may have saved Mr. Whittington's life. Truly competent wingshooters hunt and bust clays with the smaller gauges; it's not a "juvenile's" weapon. That's why Dick's gun has still killed fewer people than Ted Kennedy's Oldsmobile.
Of course, we all know, all Great White Hunters prefer the 12 gauge....
