"Ben has a good suggestion on the shotgun as well. One thing to remember in the 870 vs 500 debate. The tang safety on the 500 is better for ambi use as long as you use a traditional stock on it. If you go to a pistol grip stock, you have to remove…"

"Rob,A 10/22 is the most economical and fun gun to have on hand. I never grow bored shooting mine and I figure you won't either. The Remington 700 is an excellent platform but I might suggest going up a price bracket to the BDL instead of the…"

"For just fun build up a new 10/22 with a fancy stock, red dot sight, etc. They are so much fun."

"I know the feeling.  Glocks just never felt "right" in my hand, despite my admiration for them from a mechanical point of view.  1911s, despite age and limited capacity (relative to modern semis), just fit my hand and point so…"

"Understood, and I've heard plenty of people have the same opinion on Glocks. Hell, I don't like SIG handguns based on individual experience."

Shane replied to Robert A. Jones's discussion Don't Like AR's looking for a fun Rifle. in the group Riflemen
"Reasonable assumption. That got marketed I think with Jeff Cooper's Scout Rifle. Saddle gun is probably a better word. Good for 50yds, ok out to a hundred. Nice and heavy for brush shooting. Decent mag capacity with rounds to match your pistol.…"

To himself by Paul Fleming

Be ever undaunted! Be ever unvanquished!

Yield to no fortune; stand above envy;

be content with who you are and think it no affliction

if fortune, place and time have once more conspired against you.

That which grieves and comforts you, believe it all foreordained;

What you can still hope for, that may yet come to be.

What is it we still lament, still praise? Misfortune…
