Exercise your 2nd A rights. Yes safety is very important, that was the first thing my father installed in us.
@Nightroads What is riflery? I'm assuming it's what we call hunters safety course. Teaches proper weapons handling and safety, long guns and archery. Then teaches hunting rules and regulations, put on for free by Game, Fish and Parks by Rangers. Local Sportsman's club arranges a pheasant hunt at a lodge and donates a rifle and a shotgun to the kids to draw for.
@Shortman70 Most likely a nickname for his Rifle.
I don't have specific names for my weapons but there all female. I say she or her when I refer to them. I do the same with my trucks, I don't know why.
@Shortman70 riflery is a high school class in Alaska, you are graded on safety, position and accuracy. Ten shots, ten points per shot. Bullseye gets you the full ten and one point taken away for every circle outside the bullseye.
I see. Do they still teach it? We could use that in the lower 48 but most students here take the hunter safety course, make and female.
@Shortman70 they still offer it. And hold tournaments. They used to use.22 now they use air compression pellet guns. But they use a swiss arms model with a one foot muzzle velocity of 1650fps. So about as powerful as a plinker.22
Yes indeed. I also own a few of them. Downside is there almost as loud as a rifle.
Ruger 10/22's are great guns. Still have my first 1, bought it used, no front sight and the old boy said it didn't shoot very good anymore. Found a sight, it was so dirty that the action barely cycled. Cleaned it good and still use, always in truck ready to go, prob one of the best rifles I got.
Yeah I think I was around that age when my dad first started showing me how they work
