if you can hit the bullseye with it he'll take you serious, if you're just going to spray and pray they hit, don't.

As Deimos said, if you're not accurate, (at least to some extent) don't bring it. About looking like a kid. If you don't give him a reason to see you as a kid, you shouldn't be worried. Also, if your dad's friend thought you were a kid, why would he bring you to a shooting range to shoot an M40 in the first place?

Gentlemen, my Dad's friend is taking me to a shooting range to shoot an M-40 (I know, you might say "Not slingshot, go post that on the other weapons page" but please keep reading). I have a hunting slingshot (Daisy Powerline F16). He's been in the military and all, and I don't want to look like a little kid in front of him. Should I bring it? It can kill and all but... I don't know if he'll take me seriously again.
If your Dad's friend is taking you to shoot his rifle then he's probably really proud of it and thinks you'll get a kick out of shooting it. I wouldn't denigrate that by bringing along something else. Even if you had a .30-06 in your gun safe, it might be nice to just accept the moment he's offering.

You're getting a good size list of Slingshots under your Avatar Nick! Nice collection! BTW,did I hear you say once you were from Lapeer Michigan? If true,you are in a legendary town for slingshots. Two of my top 10 slingshots of all time came from Lapeer. They were the Tinker Deerslayer and Killdeer. Absolutely wonderful frames. They gave me hours and hours of fun as a kid! You should check your local warehouses. Maybe you'll find a cache of old Killdeers!!!!

Bring your shooter everywhere you go. Get a xtra small shooter that will fit in your pocket and take it every where you just never know. I carry a cell phone pouch that has a little room for my slingshot and my ammo and if I go it goes. If I happen to come across a ditch and a bottle or a can presents its self I take advantage of it and give it a marble. Go head have some fun break something.

Hi there,

I'm new here so please excuse me if I ask dumb questions, but I have been searching a lot and I didn't get smarter.

So maybe I'm a little off-topic but I hope you can help me.

I would like to buy a gun safe and I don't know which one it's the best. I was searching for some information and I found an article about long gun safes with pros and cons, but I am sure it is better to hear an opinion from you guys.

Can you please help me?

Thank you
