.22 handgun for introducing new/inexperienced shooters.

I am looking for a .22 handgun in order to introduce new shooters to shooting, or to get someone back into shooting if they have not shot for a while.

Re: I guess my original plan for Afghanistan after 9/11 was right afterall

"When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains, and the women come out to cut up what remains, jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains and go to your gawd like a soldier." Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936. Afghanistan has always been a troublesome country for those other countries that co...

Re: PA: Her theft knew no bounds- Dem State Representative

Apparently her definition of the most needy in Philly was herself.

Plus the gall of naming her charity with the acronym MECA, an Islamic holy place, while treating the charity as her personal cash cow.

Re: Big Shoot-Out South of Eagle Pass, Texas

Patton, or anybody else didn't have the S&W .357 till after it was first made in 1935. SamBodie: Thank you for being aware of the 1935 introduction of .357. I know that by the time WWII ended, one of Patton's revolvers was a .357, so he would have added that to his sidearm collection = or > 1935. B...

Re: Pulled over for speeding, Plano

Mine has push button start, so if I threw my key fob up on the roof, the car would probably still start. But it's the thought that counts. Maybe I'll try that next time I have to talk with John Law. I tried this one time on a Lewisville LEO: "I hear that some officers give warnings to every 10th veh...

Re: Another Attack in Gun Free London-Use an umbrella for defense

By the way, the news stated that the narwhal-wielder was a Polish chef.

He's a good example of how tough Poles can be. Of course, the fire extinguisher guy also had warrior spirit with his improvised selection.

Good news about this story: clerk carried, clerk "waited his turn", carries a .45.

Bad news: Not a head shot.
