People ask what method I use to test shotshells. First thing I usually do is the taste test. At least that’s my explanation for this picture. The shell I am chomping down on is one the 3-inch Prairie Storms I wrote about last week.

Honestly I can’t remember why I stuck that shell between my teeth but it must have seemed like a good place for it at the time. Unfortunately for me, Federal’s Tim Brandt captured the moment on film. Write a caption. Or, pretend it’s an ad and make up a slogan. Mockery and personal attacks are also allowed.

The winning caption not only gets a sharp new Gerber knife, but Tim will hook you up with two boxes of Prairie Storm in 12 or 20 gauge, 2 ¾ or 3-inch. It’s up to you whether you put them in your mouth or in your shotgun.
