For the last 30 or so years, I've shot a Beretta A302 with a 26" IC barrel, mostly using Kent FastSteel 4s. That combo has been very, very effective out to 40 or so yards, though I've killed many birds well beyond 40 with that outfit.

This year, I was curious to see at what distance I was really shooting at waterfowl, including geese.. I borrowed a laser range finder from a friend and was shocked to see what geese look like at 100 yards, 200 yards, and the like.. I also figured out that the decoys around our blind, the ones that were set the furthest out, were well within gun range at a mere 35 yards out.

Once I figured out what the birds looked like at the distances they were actually at, it gave me an idea about what kind of lead I should be giving them and my shot effectiveness actually went up. There were few birds that decoyed within range that got away unless I had only enough time for a "snap shot".
