Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably not happy about the ban on lead shot for hunting waterfowl. Honestly, I don’t believe the lead shot does any damage at all. As far as I can tell, lead shot lying in water does no more harm to waterfowl than it does when it’s coming out of my shotgun at more than 1,000 feet per second. Which is pretty much none. Not that I’ve ever hunted waterfowl with lead shot. I don’t think the law is necessary, but I still comply with it. Until it’s changed, assuming people will one day admit I’m right about everything, I will keep obeying that law. I can’t hit much with a shotgun, anyway, so the type of projectile makes very little difference to me.
