    Skeet is a sport where you are better to hit half of each bird then completely blast one and miss the other completely.

    The choice is yours, place your faith in the court system and 12 of your peers, or carried away by 6 friends.

    While a dictionary is a good idea, once you spend more time around gun forums, or talking about guns with people, it will soon be made clear.

    As for NDs and ADs, someone put it real nicely on another forum:

    AD = malfunction of firearm or cartridge
    ND = malfunction of you
    +1 for AD/ND
