Donmoores shark story makes me have to ask__ IF you Have to shoot a shark because its trying to bite you, where is the best place to shoot it? Someone told me in the nose b/c all its sensory organs are there but i'v heard of other places too. What if its coming head on at you and you don't have a shot from the side?
well being htat you are in Miami you probaly will encounter Bulls and Tigers, and i wouldnt be too picky as to where to shoot as long as you hit the shark. although i dont advise shooting a shark, i would rather prod it with my speartip. but if you had to shoot it go for the snout, gills, the "soft" underbelly. but a prod in the eyes should also do the trick.
luckily i havn't encountered a big bull or tiger, only a big hammer that didn't pay attention to me.
