Note: i said i never squeeze the trigger unless im confident of my shot, i said Almost exclusively with a 410, ive used 20 and 12 gauges many times, but always seem to come back to the 410. And i didnt hunt all of the 37 years. You see me refer to my Grampa alot, he taught me to hunt and instilled a strong hunting ethic in me. ( this is where someone will bring up the ducks) as kids we honed our shooting skills shooting bumble bees off the lilac bush and wasps out of the air with our Daisy model 155 "1000 shot" BB guns this ability to hit small moving targets carried over into hunting. have i missed a squirrel or two with a .22 absolutely , but ive never lost game i shot at with a shotgun. and i never said i didnt miss sometimes you need a follow up, to much lead, not enough a little high or low game changed direction just as you shot.That is truly impressive to have hunted 37 years with a .410 on a variety of fur and feathered game without missing one single animal!
