I saw a quick draw tournament in Vegas when I was a teen 50 plus years ago. And among the fastest was Glenn Ford, Clint Eastwood and Sammy Davis Jr. Nice guys easy to talk to. No papparrazis back then they would have been the targets. Ted Blocker was number 1. In the semi auto Leonard Knight was awesome with 1911. Jim Hoag put on a demo.

I'll bet all of us of a certain age have a couple like that. I do notice that in general, the bigger they are the more they stay home.

Thumbs up

I meet a girl and lost interest. She's handled the change well and has even been out shooting with me.

you may be surprised how little non-firearm owners know about ammunition terms. ask one of them which is more deadly, and they usually pick "full metal jacket" over hollow point, simply because of the movie title.

when is the last time anyone here went out of their way to explain firearms to a non owner rather than just joke about their ignorance.
