Another Really Good Shooter

The guy deserves his props:

Puente, a 13-year [Milwaukee PD] veteran, won first place in the U.S. Practical Shooting Association competition in Oregon, where he outshot a fellow firearms teacher from New Jersey. He holds the title of grand master limited.

Puente shot three weapons used by Milwaukee police: a .40-caliber Glock handgun, an AR-15 rifle and a Benelli .12-gauge shotgun. He fired at stationary and moving targets from between 3 feet and 400 yards away, changing weapons depending on the target. He used an iron sight on the weapons but no optical scope.

(Clearly, the JS writer has no idea what's going on in shooting...)

Obviously, Officer Puente is not a "spray and pray" shooter. We should have more like him.

I like the .12 gage shotgun... .12? Pretty small bore, must be used for hunting mice or something.

What the Journal Sentinel does NOT know about firearms and shooting is equaled only by what they do NOT know about the basic teachings of Islam.

As long as you place the dot before "12", yah, it's small.

But if you write it correctly, it's a large load of very nasty stuff, Patrick.
