I will add this, to the mix too.
It might not sit well with some folks. (but it is my HONEST opinion)
I have a disdain, for some new shooters.
You may have noticed it in some of my posts.
Some really don't have a clue, about the "basics" of shooting.
They buy their first firearm, because of the "cool" factor.
As they are influenced by video games, zombies, & movies.
Let it be a poodle shooter, Mil surplus ammo, or a high capacity plastic hand gun. With all the fancy tactical additions.
While there is nothing wrong with this. (it is their $)
Yet they MISS out, on the basics of shooting.
I was chatting with someone who logged in chat the other day.
He logged in and asked where he could buy a silencer & drum magazines.
I asked him what he was planning to use them for.
He said for SHTF, blowing stuff up, & zombies.
I told him I would rather use a 12ga or Lever gun.
He said those were outdated, and ineffective, and not accurate.
And not made for putting on the "important accessories".
I asked him if he ever shot a lever or bolt action, shot open sight competition, or went hunting.
He said Hell No!
And admitted that he had NEVER shot a bolt or lever hunting rifle, nor used open sights.He has only shot AR or AK platform rifles with high tech.optics.
When I mentioned the he needed to learn to shoot w/o the fancy stuff.
He logged out. Go figure...
Others I have talked to, have never fired a revolver.
