True. But that's a poor example because he was shot over 30 yards away. He was also shot with a 28 gauge shotgun. Had he received the same blast in the face, from a 12 gauge, while they were unloading their guns at the truck, Cheney would have been attending his closed casket funeral.

Given the choice, no. I'm just saying taking a round of 12 gauge into the human body at close range is going to be devastating. Regardless of the size of the shot.
 
And the choke matters too. This was a 30' shot with only .410 #4 shot - but full choke:
