I miss Dan Rather sometimes

I'm sure Dan Rather, a Texas boy like Bob Scheiffer, would already have video in the can (or whatever video is in after you shoot it) of someone firing a 28-gauge shotgun at a firing range target to see the big hole chopped out of it by the pellets.

Rather: "So, let me get this straight. At the same range that Vice President Vader, sorry, Vice President Cheney shot Mr. Whittington, this is what the same kind of shotgun shell did to the paper target?" [zoom in]

As the Mandarin recalls, at that range, even with bird shot, someone isn't "sprayed," they're, well,... shot. They don't put you in intensive care to pick a few little pellets out with tweezers.
