I think a large point this thread makes is that the gun really matters the least. The person is the weapon.
Let me clarify in saying that yea, it must go bang, and must shoot straight and it must be enough gun.
Gifted, perhaps you should borrow a gun for a class. Or just go out and buy a gun you like and learn how to use it.
Way top often we all, myself included, get caught up in the search for the perfect weapon, or the ultimate arsenal. We argue over caliber, and single vs double vs safe actions. Maybe we should all be looking for the perfect mindset, the ultimate technique.
That being said, anyone else see the S&W Thunder Ranch 44!!!!!
