  5. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    My son will be joining the Freeport Junior Club in a few weeks and I know they prefer the kids use a bolt action rifle. My son is 11 years old and about 4'-10" tall. The full size 10/22 that I have is too big for him to hold properly and he uses a front shooting rest when he does shoot it. So...

    Where is the "Good Fight"? Here in this community we tend to place the 2A debate in the forefront and I feel we're missing the big picture. Progressive ideals, being fostered in our youth, are taking hold and leading the world away from individual freedom. So, what is the ultimate goal of...
