Buckshot and richochet - HAAALP!

Guys, I know this sounds weird, but I'm putting a shout out out here:

Anybody know about buckshot and its rate of ricochet? If you do, can you mail me? Or comment here?

I need to make sure something I'm writing is legit for buckshot and I left all my redneck buddies in Oklahoma. 

Also, they do not have computers. o_O

My only suggestion would be intensive googling. I needed to find out about how it feels to shoot an old colt revolver and I was able to find some stuff about groups of people who dress up like cowboys and girls and have target shooting contests. If you find an "expert" they're usually happy to share what they know.
Good luck!

I just have to say that I love this post.

Got no haaalp for ya, but I snickered.

i did my senior AP physics project on shooting... I think it had something to do with ricochet, but I have no remembrance of it now.

And I considered buying a bbgun to shoot the squirrels off my bird feeder.

Yup, that's about all I know about guns and buckshot and ricochet.

I'm with Heidi. I'm laughing (but not at you, really.)

And with pseudosu... Google like there's no tomorrow. And what you can't find, make up. Cause it it ain't on Google, no one's gonna know anyway! (Don't they call that literary license?)

Unless your audience is a bunch of rednecks with guns...then you'll really need to know your stuff!

Good luck!

Pseudosu and Heidi, I'm gonna google. Although I'm finding lots of psycho gun forums...I'm almost afraid to stick mah head in there. LOL (Pseudosu, thanks for stopping by the blog!)

Real live lesbian and t'OTHER Heidi, thanks and I'm glad you got a giggle...

Okay, I'm off to search. Wish me luck!
