We had archery in junior high. I missed the target and the arrow actually bounced off the wall hitting g the guy next to me in the shin. Whoops. Good thing it loses a lot of energy hitting that wall.

yea we had blunted ones with these plastic tip thing IIRC. still, if it hit you full velocity it could mess you up. pretty sure they were like 20lb draw strength too, if they did it with a 70lb like my compound i would be pretty ****ing scared.



wtf terry bradshaw did some video about University of Dayton:


i graduated less than 4 year ago and campus looks completely different. they talk about a diverse student body, i guess diverse means 95% really rich white kids and 4.8% indian and asian kids .2% black kids on the basketball team

we had archery at my HS and kids would do dumb **** with that too. i dont think anyone was ever hurt but i am pretty sure they do not teach it anymore

Having been there multiple times and having friends that go there, I lol'd really hard at this. My friends are in the rich white kids demographic obviously.

Where did you go to take the course? That seems like a really good first step.

Renting also sounds like a good idea. Any recommendations on what type of gun I should be looking for when I rent them, or will i be able to just try as many as I want? Is recoil have more to do with the caliber of the bullet and less to do with the gun itself?

Thanks,
Glock and M&P are the two cheap options you should be looking at. A lot of people like the XDm as well. Stay away from 1911s especially for self defense. They are finnicky SOBs until you get into $2k and up. 9mm is fine for self defense with good ammo. Recoil is a combo of ammo and the gun. My full size .40 kicks less than my pocket 9. 9 is a much nicer round to shoot in a comparable sized gun though.

.22 is great for learning so if you can swing it something like a $3-400 Browning Buck Mark is an excellent tool to let you have more range time without burning thru costly ammo.

If you are still around Columbus, I believe Blackwing up in Delaware will let you rent guns for a fee.

dude its crazy. EVERYONE at UD preaches about how amazing the community is and all this **** when 90% of the people are exactly the same and there is almost no diversity. i actually wrote paper for this BS SOC course i had to take about how it was all bull**** and that the community was completely unrealistic compared to the real world.

'the ghetto' is pretty awesome though, even if they did completely crack down haaaard on the partying. it was like spring break every weekend my freshman year and after that it got blasted down pretty hard.

My friend teaches it. I took it from him. There are instructors all over the country I think that teach the NRA basic pistol course.

At least where I have rented (Manchester Firing Line) you have to pay to rent each gun separately. I went a couple times before getting my own gun and went with other people so we rented a couple different ones and shared. Also in the class my friend had several guns to kind of get used to and at the range another friend brought several more to try. If you have friends with guns going with them is a great way to try a few.

The recoil has to do with both the gun (mostly the weight/size) and the caliber. A 44 magnum will have much more recoil than a 9mm. But if you have a Glock 26 (subcompact polymer 9mm) and a Sig 226 like mine (full size steel 9mm) the Glock will have more recoil because its smaller and lighter.

A lot of ppl committ suicide at shooting ranges.

I'd feel safer buying a gun and shoot around in the woods.

Legit. One last question: you don't need a permit or anything to be able to go to a firing range, do you? I can just show up, pay to rent, and shoot?

Thanks,

Thanks,
As previously said, kick is a function of caliber, gun design, and gun weight. Heavier guns have less kick because they have more inertia. Pistols with their barrels set lower feel like they don't kick as badly because they transfer the recoil back into your arm where the energy gets dissipated through your shoulders instead of causing normal upward kick. In general though, caliber affects it most since more powder (or a magnum round) = more energy to be transferred.

If you find that you don't like the feeling of recoil and have $700 laying around, go for a Chiappa Rhino. I shot one in a .357 magnum and it kicked about the same as a 9mm.

i guess you could do a no hands on course but that is pretty much a waste of time IMO
All you would have to have is a teacher that actually maintains authority. It's not like some liberal english teacher is going to volunteer to teach it. It would probably fall to the hardass male that every highschool seems to have.
