I have as yet to see a senior series or above where a gun added realism. I've never shot a bird at 110 yards, or further.

I think a junior title is meaningless if handling a dog means you can't safely handle a gun - that dog shouldn't be in a blind for safety reasons.

and finally, I think that guns neither add nor detract from 90% of HT scenarios, it's just part of the scenery. A dog will mark off the gun or not - but so long as he marks, he's OK with me.
