    It's a super nice neighborhood. I don't even own a handgun at the moment. Doctor's and hospital's are slowly absorbing everything! Lol. All I can say is Obamacare. Things are looking up tho.

    So...anyone else here target shoot and hunt with their airguns...!?

    I find it keeps my eye/hand coordination and trigger control sharp when I can't get to the range to practice

    or when I have to dispatch a destructive varmint in the garden.
