On our place we have(had) three rosters. One is the old guy and the others are up and comming. Except one was not really handsom. Not really handsom roosters turn into targets here. I took a shot with my C9 at the not really handsom rooster this afterrnoon and whap! I got him. Maybe 7 yards, aimed for the middle but hit the neck, maybe jerked high. In any event, the C9 performed as a straight shooter.
