    Against whom was the unlicensed firearm case opened? One or more of the three fleeing robbers or the hero dad?

    Bloody well done!

    Something I am just thinking about - unless it is a slug that was fired, isn't this shot with a shotgun a bit risky if they grabbed his daughter? Assuming they held her hostage of course...

    Shotgun spread is vastly exaggerated in stories. The pattern opens around 1/2 an inch per yard, so at the 5-10 yard ranges common indoors, it would only be 2.5-5 inches across. Roughly the same as a mug.

    The results for the two unmodified barrels, the Remington Improved Cylinder and Cylinder, showed an average spread of .58″ and .60″ respectively.
    Thanks!

    one would need a conscience and compassion for that even to equate in ones mind

    ill put my money they feel rocks, same way they would bail on him should he have been wounded and not killed
