Thoughts on technique

Last week I was at the range and made a deliberate attempt to think about every action as I aimed and fired. There are tons of videos and guides online about proper stance, grip, sighting, etc.....

The Ruger 10/22 is a great and immensely fun gun. I have had several over the years, most recently a Talo edition I picked up for under $290 (OK price.. It's been higher and lower since I bought it)....

Most excellent gun

I have the P250. It came with the 40SW and a 357Sig barrels. I shoot it almost exclusively with .40 on account of ammo price.

It looks pretty,...

Welcome! Selling knives? :) I collect them.. got close to 500 now. Mostly folders, but have a decent selection of fixed blades. Not a lot of high-end ones, just the odd looking types.
