    My friend had a gunshop/gunsmithing business in north central MN. In the early 70's while on vacation I stop for a visit. In his shop he had a Win 101, fixed chokes, in for repairs. A league trapshooter over the past few weeks had a wad stuck in each barrel. In both cases he tried to shot the wad out. He didn't blow up the shotgun but the ends of both barrels, approx 5"-6' back were split and peeled like a banana. No other damage to shotgun. The question is "How much damage can a stuck wad cause?"

    Ignorance - Destroying one barrel by trying to clear a wad that way.

    Stupidity - Destroying two barrels by trying to clear a wad that way.

    Or maybe the gun owner didn't tell your gunsmith friend "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth".
