I had an s10 that had a light turn on every time it hit what it thought was a shift point, drove me mad. I HATE having lights on my dash flash on. And I obviously don't drive as efficiently as I could but sometimes you can't shift right at 2500 revolutions... I totalled that truck...

Ha, I've had my Jeep since 2000, have 250k+ miles on it and I have NEVER shifted when the light has told me to

It's mostly personal choice they should all be accurate at 100 yards and closer

I want a lever action but I want it to shoot like "The Rifleman's" lever action shoots.
Henry has the big loop available and I have had customers have me rig their triggers (they were performers in a wild west show in Oklahoma and used special blanks) after playing with those rifles a would not recommend that set up on any live fire weapon. Way too many unintentional discharges. The blanks they used had wads that burned up on the way out of the barrel or they would have been dangerous too.

I was only kidding.
The Rifleman just looks so cool when he fires his lever action.

I am fairly new to guns and extremely conscience about safety.

How the heck does one shoot a pistol grip shotgun? I have trouble shooting a shotgun up on my shoulder. I just don't see how that pistol grip could work on a shotgun.

I love my .410 pistol grip. Very easy to shoot. The 12 will be getting a stock.

I am not making the obvious vegetarian joke here.


When at MSU, an underclassmen buddy of mine broke out his .22 rifle and some .22Short HollowPoints. His dorm room was on the fourth floor of the dorm and had a unbelievably loud flushing toilet. We could get two or three shots off at the big hill across from the dorm (very close, almost impossible to miss) while the flush was covering the sound. I don't think any of us ever got caught at that. Everybody looked at the rifle's owner when the water tower on that hill started emptying out through what turned out to be a valve rather than a .22 hole one evening.

I don't think that would be as easy to get away with nowadays; this was in the mid 1990's.
