Here's an interesting tidbit about shooting.
Just over one third of the sportsmen and sportswomen surveyed recently by HunterSurvey said they enjoyed using the AR-15 rifle for hunting and target shooting.
To nonshooters, the AR-15 looks like an assault weapon or military rifle, and they can't figure out why someone would want one for target practice.
Guess you have to be a target shooter. To the sports shooter, it's just like any other rifle.
In fact, the AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America today, if you are gauging how many are made, according to Tom Gresham of Guntalk.com.
Rob Southwick of HunterSurvey.com, said the 36 percent who said they enjoyed using the AR-15 seems like a high number.
This may have been people who wanted to defend the use of these style firearms, he said.
If you don't know what an AR-15 looks like, go online and Google AR-15 rifle.
I got a chance to target shoot with an AK-47, which is another military or assault rifle.
It was fun, but it was a sure-fired way to burn up a lot of ammo.
So you wonder, when is a rifle a target gun or an assault weapon.
