    The Oregonian had 2 articles out lately. One was a fairly positive, if rambling story about a national level target match that some Oregon kids attended.

    The second was an opinion piece saying that lead concerns in hunting ammo are overstated. Not a bad opinion piece, but in the online version there's a picture of a condor, which is relevant to the discussion. In the printed version, they put in a picture of a cut open shotshell. All the Condor concerns I've heard are about rifle ammo in gut piles. That picture has nothing to do with the text and just promotes the incorrect belief many people have that we still shoot lead at ducks and geese. We don't.
