    Penetration should be pretty good if you can manage to aim it.

    The first firearm I have seen that requires a mandatory gun bearer!!

    It is a very good thing that small scope is on that rifle so far from the shooters. There would have been some very big cuts on some foreheads if it was mounted like a regular scope.
    Ouch.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
    A Legend in my own mind!

    I fired an 8 bore once-recoil is more push than anything. No adrenaline though, and wrong position-you have got to lean in and keep forward foot lost to rock with the gun. I didn't, ended up with a hairline fracture in collar bone.

    Wouldn't trust penetration-be a great pelvis or skull buster! Critter that is!
