I agree with that one, lets face it, the kids today know more about anything they are interested in than we adults can ever find out with our faces buried in old books. One of my young Technicians can Google on his IPhone faster than I can ask a question! Besides, with the wars or Youngest bravest have fought over the last 20 years, they actually have experience with stuff we never dreamed of shooting!

Life Experience is another subject altogether. The only way to get that is by aging, the only way to age is by trial and error without Catastrophic Failure. Were better off teaming young and old than grouping like ages together!

There is a guy I have shot with that looks down his nose and sneers at the ammo some use. He, only shoots self defense ammo. Glad he has that much money to throw around.

Most of us stay away from him.

I am joining a private outdoor range just to stay away from people like that.

I have very few handyman type skills. And there's no man around this house to do any work like that for me.

I was definitely that guy when I first graced the range with my ignorance :/

RO like " You swept me twice now , I know it's unloaded but pay attention.

And my ignorant cave manish personality was thinking " Well why you keep walkin in front of me then "

But I'm proud to say I have since became a much more aware shooter at the range and am no longer the guy who flagrantly swings his weapon around lol

I think I was just not used to shooting around a lot of other people. Before I started shooting at ranges I pretty much just go find a couple acres of woods and shoot whatever was laying around.

I racked the slide fast and pow round went off. I put the safety on and one minute later pow another round goes off with the safety on.
then it would shoot 3 rounds at a time. so I take it back and they gave me half of what I paid. said some **** bought past the return date but that wasn't what amazed me. as I was giving her the pistol she stated that they have had alot of problems with that pistol. wow. so til this day I shop at a gun store that has been pretty good to me. I never went back to southern cash & pawn.
Wow a HiPoint 45 is$139 NIB and if you were to have a problem they have the best warranty around and they usually ship you an extra mag just for the trouble

OK Winds, Im jumping way off the topic for a second- If you can master stripping an AR, cleaning it, assembling and firing it accurately, you can learn to build! My Mom was a Widow with 3 young kids and a 150 year old Greek Revival in serious need of Revival. She was a tough Dutch Bird even when she got old. Me and my sisters learned with my Mom how to tear out Plaster and Lath, Sheetrock, Mud and finish 3 rooms at a time, every summer.

She passed only 8 months ago but shes my greatest Mentor ever. You can do it, it took me years to learn enough to build a house but fixin is just a bunch of small steps that lead to many a rewarding and glorious sit back, drink a few beers and admire your handiwork moments!

Just do it!

Hahaha...........I don't have an AR......

Usually I am handicapped with doing my own work around the house by lack of the proper tools.
