it sounds to me like it may be time for some hunter safety courses or a trip to the local gun club to take a basic firearms safety course. it only takes one stupid move to hurt your self or someone else. they can teach you all the differnt kinds of guns and there uses and its much more effective to have the instructon in a hands on situation than reading it online or out of a book. every one new to guns must get some kind of safety lesson evan some one like me that grew up around firearms. when i turned 12 my o'l man took me down to the local gun club for hunter safety. he said it was because i didnt listen to him and sgt. Farmer could get the point accross much better. he was right. as ive gotten older i still take classes on guns mostly selfdefence stuff but evan last week i took a quick class on improveing my skeet score.
