I have it on good authority that Neil was "working on" a shotgun when squirrel popped out of his barrel-bending tree and bit him on the tookis. Even the squirrel knew that bending a shotgun barrel was a dumb thing to do (especially for someone as smart as Mr. Winston)
Actually Neil has become a skeeter. He felt that his devote wisdom, intellect, and especially ballistic charts/graphs were being wasted on the likes of mortal trapshooters. Now he is in a happier, warmer more friendly group of admirers. Even Neil became frustrated with wether to use 7.5's or 8's and has adjusted well via only using the acceptable diameter.
