At "10 feet" there would be no Mr. Whittington. 90 feet is very plausible.

CSI Corpus Christi: How Many Crimes Did Cheney Commit on Saturday?
Gen. J.C. Christian writes, "Our Deputy Leader was using 28 gauge shotgun shells loaded with 3/4 oz of #7-1/2 shot. That particular load carries approximately 262 BBs. The doctor caring for the wounded man said that he removed about 200 BBs. That means about 4/5ths of the shot in the load struck the man in an area no larger than about 18 inches in diameter."
Update II: Shooting Holes In Cheney's Story
[F]rom the inside of a car, 100 yards from the scene, Armstrong neither saw nor heard Whittington announce his approach, he was "more bruised than bloody," and he was "bleeding profusely," he was "fine," and he didn't know, "if he was going to the hospital or the mortuary," there was "no drinking" and there was, "beer available," Cheney "urged" her tell her story on Saturday, and it was her family's "idea" on Sunday, except when it was her idea on Sunday.
As clear as mud, isn't it?

Rule of thumb: shot patterns expand radially one inch per yard downrange.
i.e. 30 yards = 30 inches radius = 60 inches diameter.

Cheney's Negligence -- Is it a felony?
Texas Penal Code Title 5, Chapter 22.04(a)(3) makes it an offense for someone to injure an elderly person (over age 65) by an act of recklessness or criminal negligence. Subsection (f) or (g) would make it a "state jail felony."

I'd stand at 90 feet away and let someone take a shot at me with a 28 gauge shotgun with bird shot

If this goes further and Cheney is impeached and eventually charged.. is there something preventing Bush from pardoning him at all?

SARITA, Texas (AP) - The sheriff's department closed its investigation Thursday into Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of a hunting partner and said no charges will be filed.
The Kenedy County Sheriff's Department issued a report that largely supports the vice president's account of the weekend accident that wounded 78-year-old lawyer Harry Whittington.
Whittington, interviewed in the hospital, assured investigators no one was drinking when the accident occurred and everyone was wearing bright orange safety gear, according to the report.
Sheriff's dispatcher Diana Mata, speaking for the department, said the case is closed and no charges will be filed. She said Sheriff Ramon Salinas would have no comment on the report.
