So sad and a real tragedy, not only for the man, but for the boy that accidently killed him. I don't know how someone gets over something like this. I hope they realize it was an accident and I am sure the man would not hold it against them.
From what I saw posted later, it appears that the father, son, and a couple other people were riding around looking for pheasants. The boy, for some reason, has a round in the chamber, and when they stopped to get out, it discharged, striking and killing his Dad.
Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
