    Yeah. I see what you mean.

    Minorities shouldn't own guns, right?





















    Oh, you meant the power lines? Does seem like it might cause issues.

    or only the chain link fence that separates them from a fairly active road?

    Shotgun pellets vaporize unless they hit their intended target. I saw it on tv.

    The soundtrack is inexcusable.

    That's Garland Public range near Dallas. They have limits on the size of shot
    you use, but the author's notes that the range and lines have been there a
    long time are true.

    I've put about 200 shells in the general direction of those lines and have yet
    to black out Dallas :dunno:

    I go there also. That range is about 5 miles from my house. No danger at all hitting those lines.

    there probably isn't enough energy to do damage with light target loads smaller than 7.5, but I could see how it would be a problems if you're shooting dead coyote at it.

    'Far as I know, there's never been damage to the lines and the power company doesn't have a problem with the shooting range. I want to say that the range has been there since at least 1965.

    I believe that maximum shot size at that range is 7.5 and no more than 3.25 dram powder equivalent per shell.

    I've never seen those power lines move or otherwise react, so I doubt that they're being hit with any force, if at all.

    Plenty of opportunities for some jacknut to turn around and shoot at traffic on the road with a rifle or pistol in addition to a shotgun - no obstructions between the firing lines and the road save for a chain-link fence.
