    I have a pair of 60$ Truglo's on my pair of Ruger Mk III 22/45's. Both 2.5 dot, I tend to keep them turned down as low as possible for indoor shooting. Both on a decent day will put 10 rounds in a pop bottle top without touching the sides at...

    Get the NRA firearm safety book, go through it with them. Explain the words. Explain just how serious a subject this is. Sit through "sweet sundays gone" with them. Explain as needed. Then, yes I prefer a plain bb gun and pop cans. Simple,...

    Easier to buy a pound of real carnuba wax flakes and not have to wonder exactly what is in it. The bag I bought will last me the rest of this life and and probably most of my grandkid's lives. Remember 2% is all you need.
