Choosing the Right Shotgun Ammo: The Steaks Are High

OK, the steak in this video isn’t on drugs. Well, not anymore. In my defense, the meat’s mounted fairly high up on the cardboard. That’s my story and I’m steaking with it. In fact, I’m steaking my reputation on it. But seriously folks, Top Shot competitor Chris Cheng could well be the first firearms funster to emerge from a TV program that takes itself so seriously the final episode is called Angst for the Memories. In case you’re wondering, yes I have a grudge. Not only did Colby try (and fail) to make putting your hands on your hips manly and make me spend hundreds of dollars on teeth whitening, but the program singularly failed to sign-up our man Leghorn as a competitor. Would Nick have kicked ass while looking like one (thanks to creative editing)? Of course. It’s a shame he couldn’t have steaked his claim to the title.

    I’m sure Nick would have been kicking ass and steaking names…..

    Hopefully someday you and Colby can meat in the middle. I’d be loin to you if I didn’t say I was looking forward to it.

      Ouch! Lol

  3. avatar Matt in FL says:

    Well, that was fun.

    Slow news day, eh?

  5. avatar Derrick says:

    Did he just “A-SALT” that target?

  6. avatar Felix says:

    It’s rare to find ribbing like this in a medium like this, but it’s fine with me. Eye’d like to see more of it.

  7. avatar jwm says:

    All in all it was a well done report. A little raw around the edges but digestable anyway.

  8. avatar Kim Burr says:

    Very appropriate to use New York Strips for this. Spicy language aside, It’s always good to see Seasoned Shooters make Mincemeat of their targets.

    When does every shot land where you want it? Venison!

  10. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Steak out the next such event to ensure that no misteaks are made, but be ready to pull steaks.

    The meat of it, ribbing aside, is that Nick has to find a way to be everywhere at once – except downrange, of course.

    We look forward to your roast of the next perpetrator of a Leghornless event.

    Shoot and baste, repent at leisure.

    Good Grief. They’re using table salt? Anybody who remembers the days of stealing watermelons as a kid knows that you load your shells with rock salt.
    And instead of “regular” wadding, I’d probably crumple up a coffee filter or something.

    1. avatar Felix says:

      What would happen if you filled a shotgun shell with salt water and let it dry, add more and so on until entirely full of a solid salt plug, and fired that? Would it eliminate the need for a wad? Or would it just disintegrate immediately from the shock? Would a reduced charge make it work?

    Horrible cut of steak. Def bargain section cut

  14. avatar CritZer0 says:

    I’ve been waiting for the last 6 years for these guys to finish the R&D…

  15. avatar jwm says:

    All that salt in the meat can’t be good for you.

  16. avatar Marcus Aurelius says:

    So the meat does not come from “grass” fed cows?

  17. avatar In Memphis says:

    I just want to steak a moment and thank the TTAG staff for their A-1 reporting.

    This thread is bad and you guys should feel bad.
