mircea_popescu: such learning is a lifetime activity.

asciilifeform: so slug, not shot ?
mircea_popescu: how many do you have to fire to hit duck ? "depends. can you shoot ?"
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea is that qualified hunter should be able to hit a duck at a half mile EVERY TIME.
asciilifeform: wonder what mod6 would say to this.
mircea_popescu: sometimes i wonder what you think hunting is.
asciilifeform: i am not a champion marksman, nor mega-hunter. but i do picture that duck hunt would be somewhat more difficult if you had to shoot a ~specific~ duck, rather than one from a flock; and if ducks knew how to shoot back, and call for backup..

mod6: <+asciilifeform> wonder what mod6 would say to this. << half a mile?! that's 2`640 ft. / 3 = ~880 yards. that's a pretty decent long shot even for a .308.
mod6: for me, when I use upland loads (#6 shot) for pheasants, i get many yells of "great shot mod6" if I put a bird down at "long shot" of 60-80 yards.
mod6: they do fly fast, and it's a lot harder than it looks. for one. now maybe I just suck shit, and guys are popping birds @ 500 yards on the regular. but this, i haven't seen myself.
mod6: many guys do shoot deer with .12ga slugs.
mod6: now, typically, as I understand, they typically take these deer at no more than 350 yards or you risk wounding the thing and having to track the sob for 10 miles.
mod6: if you're in a qcb, and you have a shotgun and don't have a rifle as an option, or slugs for your shotgun, buckshot will do just fine. but you aught to be within say, 25 yards if you want to put your man down.
mod6: that's just my $0.02. not gospel. personally, if I gotta fight in the field. i need to be able to put rounds on target up to at least 200 yards away or I'm basically in a qcb/hand-to-hand situation.
mod6: so, yeah qcb, shotgun with buckshot will the job really well, especially inside the home or whatnot. but if I'm attacking, trying to lay down suppressing fire, or a part of some type of garrison, gotta have a rifle. at least, that's what I want in my hands.
mod6: but heck, what do i know. when it comes down to it, any gun, with live ammo, is better than standing there with your dick in your hands.
deedbot: http://qntra.net/2017/02/mcdonalds-exposes-nuts-after-hiatus/ << Qntra - McDonald's Exposes Nuts After Hiatus
mod6: i should note that pheasants are a bit different though. i try to get them up no further than 30 yards in front of me. any more than that shots get hard, birds catch wind and they're gone easier than you'd think. I keep the dogs between 15-25 yards in front of me, that way, they flush, bird pops up, i knock 'em down.
mod6: ducks are a lot more involved. you gotta set out decoys and call 'em in to land. that's when those guys are in the blind they lock their wings coming into land that they shoot 'em. at least, that's what I hear.
mod6: im not sure how high they try to take the shots.... your pellet pattern spreads out the further and further away you are shooting. now, for instance, if I shoot at a pheasant that's too close too me. i'll hit it with a full pattern, and that will probably not be very awesome to eat.
mod6: so a bit of distance is good. too much and you're not hitting jack shit. even if you could put a pellet on target, it won't have enough KE to knock it down.
mod6: maybe the goose/duck hunters use a different choke than me too. so who knows.
mod6: i got a buddy who shoots a zillion geese every year, i'll have to ask him. i know that he does put out decoys and call's 'em in though.

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform think car. shoot driver ; shoot fuel tank ; these work with a fucking 38mm. if you're actually firing 20 gauge you can prolly fissure a cylinder / ablate the transmission / cut a hole throgh one blade large enough to make it no longer capable of flight << 20 gauge is small less common one, 12 gauge is bigger common one.
mircea_popescu: i once shot a phantom with a pea at 17 leagues
mircea_popescu: blindfolded in the fog.
mircea_popescu: and THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW I'M A HUNTER!!1
BingoBoingo: In europe bird hunters hit at extreme range because they use 1, 2, or 4 gauge "punt guns", US maxes out at 10 and 12 gauge for the reason that ducks respond to bigger guns by just flying higher and then arms race
BingoBoingo once shot down a fly with my pee
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i suspect the thing is, us duck / swamp birds mostly live in estuaries ; whereas in europe over river marshlands.
mircea_popescu: makes a huge difference, in that you ain't got a submarine dog.
BingoBoingo: Depends on part of USA. Ducks are adaptable
mircea_popescu: i thought us ducks were canadian.
BingoBoingo: Tend to be International travellers
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i think the pee thing makes you a... punter ?
BingoBoingo: Or perhaps "gold cup" marksman
