    Sometimes though, he is quite entertaining. I was concerned for a while that maybe I am posting way too slow. I have been here longer with not near as many posts. Maybe if I let it be known that I am a gun carrying ninja....:)

    Sounds like you are saying that you cannot fix stupid. You have taken rude arrogant and belligerent to a level that I cannot even dream of achieving. My hat is off to you.

    I am the best thing in the world regarding everything guns!

    Believe me! I am telling the truth! I am humble but I am great!

    To not stand against injustice is to stand for it.
    Don't confuse my personality and my attitude.
    My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

Many of the guns were duplicates, about 30 were some variant of the 1911, mostly govt' models, mostly Colts. I've owned a dozen Ruger .22 autopistols, 4 browning High Powers, 2 each of the Star 380's, 2 each of the star 9mm compacts, a PD.45 Star, an AMT backup (sa variant) 380, a keltec, a Kahr, 15 different revolvers (mostly Smiths) Only 3 shotguns, a dozen or so rifles (mostly AR's) I 'smithed most of them myself, cast bullets, loaded ammo, made holsters. For over 10 years, I averaged a new (to me) gun every month, and many of them cost as much as 2 ozs of gold did at the time, too. SHEESH, what a screwup. I've fired over 200 k rds, but less than 1/4 million rds, (can only estimate) and half were 22's. It would have been 4x that much, were it not for several years long hiatuses from the shooting ranks. That's really only 5k rds per year, average, when you figure i started shooting in 1968. :-) I've got a million "dry" draws and well over 100k speed swaps of mags, and many million more drysnaps. I've read 100's of gun books, 1000's of mags, shot hundreds of other''s guns, competed in a gross of combat matches over the years, won my share.

    What I found was that slowfire skills do not deteriorate much at ALL, if you dryfire and shoot airsoft, Neither do the really fast, gross skills, sub 25 yds with the rifle, sub 5 yds with the handgun. It's the "in between" ranges, trying to be as fast as the best, that take nearly all of your range time and ammo. from 10-25 yds with the pistol, and 50-200 yds with the rifle, trying to get hits in times as fast as 5 per second, that's what eats up all the resources, and unless you are a merc, you'll never need such ability.

    When I wear my glasses, I have no master eye, because I trained myself out of that handicap. I was born left handed, but learned to do most things, like throw a ball or swing a bat, right handed. I use my right hand with autopistols, my left hand with revolvers, cause when I started shooting, ambi safeties didn't exist. With the rifle, it doesn't matter which shoulder I use, but with the shotgun, the hits are faster and more sure from the left shoulder.

    I"ve smithed for a living for about 2 years, and I've coached scores of people in shooting, as well as in karate. Should have posted all this when I first came here, actually. I"m 60+, started shooting in 1968, a hair too late to get in on the tremendous guns in the mail deals! :-( The $25 1911's and $35 Lugers got away!

    I had occurred to me... if so many students are "short circuiting" and too dumb for him to teach... maybe it's time to take a look at the instructor! If in person he's anything like he is online his students are screwed. I definitely hope he just comes off terribly in type.

    I don't know that this thread serves any useful purpose, but it IS one of the more entertaining I've read lately.
