Re: Free recoil why why why?

From Joe King......

"Hunter sight in day, good god that's a scary event, I stay away.

I've given up on trying to advise people though, been my experience when you start pointing out the things that will actually make somebody a better shot, you invariably also point out the things that they are doing wrong, and that tends to poke holes in their pride (it's hard to sugar coat it) so they get pissed about it and stop listening, even though they want to do the things they see pretty decent shots doing, they just can't seem to get past the idea that their not quite the experts they believe they are. The exception I've found to this is with the fairer sex, women and girls seem to be a lot better at setting their pride aside then men and boys on average"

Hunter sight in day at our club is also a good day to stay away, just as scary. I'm suprised someone don't get hurt.....

People have th attention span of a horse, especially when it comes to suggesting they are doing something wrong....

At least you can wack a horse with a 2x4 to get it's attention.....

Well some any way

Ever look up along the firing line some time?

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
