    There you go.

    And the thing that made it a decent press out presentation is that you got the gun up to your eyeline early and presented the gun level towards the target long enough to see your...

    If it's a problem it's going to be a real issue if someone can't see well enough to get a visual reference from their sights. There's no way around irons not working with your eyeballs.

    You are.



    Yup.



    There isn't a perfect option. Most guns don't fit me well. The few that fit me well don't come with the options I prefer. I can't get everything I want in a handgun. So...

    The piston, the bolt carrier, and the main action spring all travel along the outside of the magazine tube. That's why it has a slick coating on the outside of it. Aiding that with a little bit of...

    You will get many answers. I prefer 25 yards. The problem is that a lot of people can't shoot accurately enough and their equipment isn't accurate enough to get a solid zero at 25. 10 yards is a lot...
