I believe that is the difference between some people and others, how much they are willing to learn
about firearms and those that just get a bad taste in their mouth..................
Most want to buy a gun, tear the box open. load it up and go shoot, screw reading an owners manual, cleaning first, or even
checking it before buying it.
Then there is the odd duck like me, I love going through a gun, new or used, and getting to know that firearm inside and out.
I especially like going to my LGS and finding something that" never ran right so I am selling it" type gun and fixing it so it runs lights out!
After reading this entire thread, my next purchase is going to be a Hipoint 995 or a Taurus TX22, I am sure ether one will run, and run well..................
