Have you ever run across someone participating in a shooting competition with a million excuses for not hitting the bullseye? OR . . . have you ever been forced to defend your own honor (and talent level) with a well orchestrated vindication?  Before you hire your own personal defense attorney, check out some the Bulletsmiths came up with below (and feel free to use them as need warrants).
