I joined Full30 because youtube wouldn’t let me watch all of the What Would Stoner Do series when I was wondering how Ian and Karl’s choices matched up with mine on lighter ARs for general purpose use (.223) and pig hunting which I’ve yet to do (6.5 Grendel. Wild pig is tasty, and a friend had no problem fitting a small one in the freezer of a normal sized refrigerator)
I live and work in Silicon Valley where the politicians don’t like black guns.
Boy Scouts of America taught me to shoot rifles in Missouri as a 10 or 11 year old Webelo, and I’ve owned guns since Bill Clinton decided to limit what I could have in 1994. Having handguns old enough to own handguns makes me feel middle aged. Obviously, I still shoot .40 S&W because that was the hot ticket back then for gun games with pistols.
I don’t shoot outdoors often enough, but get some mileage on my pistols and 9mm carbines after work at Reed’s Indoor Range in Santa Clara which is both close to home and open until 9pm on week nights.
