    That is a very common issue with people. Get the coolest gun they can and shoot it a couple of times. Guns are tools. They are meant to be used. Does a scandium anvil make a man a Blacksmith? Does a $3000 quad core, Pentium 12 computer make a man a "Gamer". Of course not. Practice. Use the tool til you have worn it out. Rebuild it or get another and use the heck out of it until you are one with the tool. Our society is so wrapped up in having the coolest stuff that we have lost our ability to "do" anything well.

    Beware the man who has but one gun, for he knows how to use it.

    I'm a little cloudy as to what he was trying to say as well, but I think I understand. 100 rounds does seem like a low number to determine if you like a weapon or not. When I go to the shooting range, I take at least 100 rounds for each weapon, and I take 3-4 weapons and that's for an hour of range time. Now, I don't always shoot 400 rounds in an hour, but I may decide to stay another hour.

    I usually shoot once a week, most of the time I take several Rifles with me and will put a minium of 100 to 200 rounds thru each gun before I leave, this is not counting the sporting clays I usually shoot on sunday evening with shotguns which you need at least a 125 shells for one course.

    ok well what i meant to get across is the fact people dont even use there weapons and suddenly have an opinion about that weapon!!!
    And that they come here uniformed to get informed and argue about what gun is better , and fight there course with out a proper knolage of the weapon!
    ok here is my story I hated the AK since it was the enemy's weapon , i loved
    the M16 , (and trash talked the AK)
    well my friend bought a AK i shot it WOW now i own 2 AK's,RPG,saga 12 semi auto shotty(sorry for my spelling)
    Now both guns are great weapons with different pros and cons but neither end up being better than one another just a different feel and compfert to my shoulder

    I remembers shooting a buddy's Glock. I could not stand it. The grip felt wrong and it was ugly as sin.

    Now I own 3 and a G19 is my primary and best shooter for me. I agree that 100 rounds is not enough to decide.

    I understand and almost completely agree with gnoll. In my youth, I was sometimes guilty of such things. However, there are instances when it doesn't take very long at all to figure out what your shooting is a piece of sh$#. In my youth, I couldn't pass up a $40 gun. It was a Lorcin 9mm. It took me all of maybe one magazine to figure out my opinion of that piece. Another, my dad's Taurus .357 Tracker. The 13th round through it since it was new shot the barrel off down range. True, every company has been guilty of producing lemons, but that wasn't the first time I've had issues with that manufacturer. Nowadays, I try to buy better quality guns, not neccessarily a lot more expensive. But as they say, you get what you pay for, with of course, a few exceptions. As far as the uneducated having such strong opinions, that's everywhere, just speak with an anti-gun person.

    All this IM/cellphone style of writing is a bit annoying to read, but I get your point (after reading it a couple times - what happened to all your punctuation?)

    People like to talk crap. People love to use the internet to pretend they are experts. And people trash talk on the internet and are hateful ALL the time. Just ignore everything and enjoy shooting your firearms. The internet is overrated, anyway...
