Something that hamilton will not throw away.

It is used as a leitmotif in the popular show 'Hamilton'. It is used throughout the show to signify Hamilton's inability to not do something. This philosophy leads him to write the 'Reynolds Pamphlet'. This was a career destroying document. It exposed his affairs with one 'Maria Reynolds'. Hamilton eventually 'throws away his shot' In the second last number of the show ('The world was wide enough'). This cost him his life.

"Thats my shot" is a a term that means that you are really good or a natural talent. It can also mean a song or an activity that you enjoy.
" Hey that food came out good". Yeah, thats my shot.

It actually comes from the old days of musket guns, where a wad (strips of cloth) was packed down in the barrel to create a seal between the gunpowder and the bullet, increasing the internal pressure when the gunpowder fired, and thus speeding the bullet.

A musket is a muzzle-loaded, smoothbore firearm, fired from the shoulder. Muskets were designed for use by infantry.
A soldier armed with a musket had the designation "musketman" or "musketeer".
"I ran out of ammo, General Washington, so I shot my wad."

(When soldiers ran out of bullets, they would resort to "shooting their wad".)

Means "I'm done, that's all I have the energy/money,willingness/desire for, there is no more I have to say/add/do."
Importer: "I'm sorry the cap on your bottle of Pickapeppa Sauce was defective. Maybe the distributor can arrange for a replacement."

Consumer: "Thanks but I've shot my wad on this subject." (I'm done, don't want to take it further.)

PS One hopes the provenance of this perhaps somewhat dated colloquialism was not an ugly sexual allusion to the male orgasm (back in the 50's when scumbag was an ugly slang term for condom) but at the time if it was, it did not seem to be generally thought of as such. But looking back, I dunno.

To shot your load, is to cum, ejaculate, spill your seed, empty your sack.

When a male ejaculates semen.
I was watching midget porn with my wife, the midget was so hot it made me shoot my load.

I woke up this morning with what appears to be semen in my pants, I think I must have had a wet dream, yes, I shot my load whilst I was asleep.
