I don't see the harm in teaching children responsibility for firearms at a young age assuming they are young enough to take it seriously and smart enough to follow all the rules. I should also point...

He's been shooting Rifles for about 2 years, and he's very responsible. I would say he is average to small compared to other kids his age. I wouldn't say he's a big kid by any stretch. I...

.22 for my son

Hi there. I'd like to get a .22 pistol for my 10 year old son. He enjoys going to the range with us, and does very well with our .22 rifle, but the 9mm is a bit too much for him. Any...

So what exactly made you think something was wrong with the gun before you sent it in, and what felt better when you got it back? I've read about the trigger job, but I am still trying to convince my...

No she's Righty like me. I've heard that you could make your own snap caps by punching the primer out of spent casings and filling it with silicone. Is that true?

Sigma 9mm accuracy

So my wife and I went to the range for our first time last weekend with our new gun, the S&W sigma 9mm. We had a blast, but as to be expected our accuracy left something to be desired. My groups...

I guess that's what I get for buying at the range. At least they give a discount for the range rental if you buy $10 in ammo. I never see Ammo in stock at my Walmart, but at those prices I'll...

Ammo?

Just got back from the range for my first time and we dropped about $60 on 200 rounds of Winchester 9mm target ammo. At this rate I can't afford to go shooting as often as I hoped. I'm hoping for...

I guess my issue is that the S&W says not to use Ammoniated solvent (read solvent that contains ammonia). Why would Ammonia be bad for a gun, and if it is bad why would any solvent/cleaner contain...

@Jpyle - I was actually looking at a Remington 870 combo like that, but I noticed the barrel of the 18" is rifled. I assume you probably need to use slugs for that instead of shot. I think that I...
