You know I have no problem with the "STIGMA". When ever my wife makes fun of my Buckmark my response is...
"I'll put it away when you can out shoot me at 25 yards with your PPK".
So far she is not even close. But on another note. I guess her brothers were razzing her about me shooting a .22LR so in order for her to abate the ridicule she bought me a SIG P226R SS for my B-Day.
So you know what... make fun of me all you want! It's paying off in spades!
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
