I rather see a big old guy shooting his little .22 pistol with deadly accuracy than a young guy with his oversized tacticooled-out LWRC REPR with no clue. Ironically, this is generally what I see when I go to my local indoor range. Needless to say, I have far more respect for the old chap and his lil' .22 pistol.
First rifle I ever got was a over & under .410/.22 Savage... wish I still had it.
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks & corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
