Default We have a new convert.

Mark, my neighbor, who lives about a half mile from me. Retired engineer. (railroad) Never shot or had firearms much has come over to the dark side.
Only gun he had was a model 39 S&W NOW look.
1911, of unknown mixture of parts. Shoots very well.
Mini 14, Ruger squared it away
Now a DPMS AR15 from Gunbroker. flat top, 20 inch HBAR.
Ordered a XDM from gunshop 9MM.
I suggested a Buckmark or Ruger MKIII, now he's hunting one.
Only problem he has is finding enough ammo to shoot all the time.
Man has it BAD.


Don't blame the tool, blame the fool.

Well done.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Great news! I have yet to take someone shooting and them not have a good time. Give them a comfortable environment, teach them safe handling practices, some basic shooting skills and every single person I've taken has asked to go back. They may not have gotten the bug as bad as this guy but they had a good time and learned that guns aren't the evil things you hear about on the news.

If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...
