The 10 Best Guns for Older Shooters

Heritage revolver

When it comes to guns for older shooters, there are many misconceptions. All are not disabled, but getting old isn’t for the faint of heart.

All of us have been diminished in ability in some ways, whether it be less visual acuity, a loss of muscle mass, or some other part of the inevitable decline. Shooters who have handled firearms their entire life have an easier track than others.

They may simply move from a .45 to a 9mm automatic and save wear and tear on the wrist. They may add a red dot sight or some other high visibility type sight to help their accuracy.

Seniors who have not handled firearms but suddenly realize that just maybe this gun thing is a good idea have a more difficult time learning handguns and shotguns and choosing a firearm with a good fit. But there are good choices.

I was tasked to find 10 good firearms for older shooters. It wasn’t that difficult and I am certain there are other types that would serve as well. Personal defense is the primary consideration, but long guns are also sporting types.

I think the recommendations are valid and the choices will prove profitable for older shooters.

1. Ruger Standard Model .22

older shooters handgun - ruger standard
The Ruger Standard Model is one handgun on the must-have list for older shooters.

The Ruger Standard Model .22 is a classic firearm today, but was very much an upstart from an unknown maker more than 70 years ago when first introduced. The Ruger is among the most reliable, accurate and well-handling handguns of the previous century.

Whether for training, small-game hunting, or even personal defense, the Ruger has filled every role a handgun may fill. The first handgun should be a .22 (and perhaps the last as well).

2. Heritage Rough Rider .22 Revolver

Heritage revolver
The Heritage .22 is offered in several versions.

The Rough Rider .22 is something of a marvel. It is very inexpensive. But it isn’t cheaply made. The .22 doesn’t have much pressure and the metal doesn’t have to take much of a beating. The Heritage doesn’t have any bling, but it always works well.

The revolver is accurate enough and economical to purchase and fire. With the .22 Magnum cylinder in place, the Heritage is a good choice for small game and may serve for personal defense.

3. Smith & Wesson Shield .380 EZ

Smith and Wesson .380 Shield E Z
The Smith and Wesson .380 Shield EZ rack is a great all-around handgun.

Some older folks, and others with limited hand strength, have a difficult time racking a slide. The Shield EZ is designed for easy racking and shooting. The Shield is offered with a manual safety or without, but all variants feature a grip safety.

I knew a woman about my age that had suffered a serious injury in a fall. She had courage and worked herself back into shape by lifting weights and constant action. However, she never regained full hand strength and could no longer handle her .38 revolvers.

While the .380 ACP isn’t an ideal cartridge for personal defense, this handgun is a reasonable choice for many people. Semi-automatic pistols transfer part of the recoil into energy to work the slide—the recoil spring absorbs some recoil.

M&P Shield
The Shield is easy to make ready, an important advantage for older shooters.

A self-loader doesn’t have a stiff trigger action—if the pistol is properly designed. Another impediment, however, is that the slide may be difficult to rack. The recoil spring must be compressed as the pistol is loaded by racking the slide.

The slide features well-designed cocking serrations that make for easy racking. The front of the slide is scalloped to allow for easy manipulation. The frame features the new 18-degree grip angle that makes the 2.0 pistols set so well in the hand.

You have a good feeling of control with this handgun.  Going to this size pistol results in a handgun that is easy to handle, comfortable to fire and with excellent accuracy in offhand fire.

Not only is the pistol easy to rack, but the magazines are also designed to be easy to load.

4. Taurus TH9 9mm

Taurus 9mm
The Taurus 9mm offers good function at a fair price.

The Taurus has two things going for it:

  • It is affordable.
  • It is reliable.

The pistol appeals to older shooters in that it offers a double-action first shot and a manual safety with decocker. While the modern striker-fired handgun is popular, there are many shooters that find the DA first shot more to their liking.

The pistol offers excellent accuracy with the single-action firing mode. The 9mm is a credible defensive choice, but without the recoil of larger calibers. The TH9 is an overlooked gem.

5. Remington 870 Pump-Action Shotgun (20-Gauge)

Remington .870 20-gauge
The Remington .870 20-gauge is controllable, compact and effective.

The Remington 870 shotgun is the classic pump-action shotgun. While there are comparable shotguns, the Remington just seems the right fit for many of us. The 12-gauge shotgun is a bit much for many older shooters.

The 20-gauge shotgun is a favorite of savvy shooters. The 20 offers plenty of power for small game. With buckshot loads, the 20-gauge is a formidable home defender. Whether you find the 12-gauge just too much or need a lighter kicker, the 20 is a first-class option.

6. Beretta 1201 Automatic Shotgun (12-Gauge)

Beretta 1201
The Beretta 1201 is easy to manipulate and some of the recoil is absorbed by the action.

While the 12-gauge a bit much for some shooters, the pump-action shotgun may also be a bit difficult to handle. For those clinging to the 12, but wanting something a bit easier to manipulate, the Beretta 1201 is a first-class option.

Let’s face it: few of us are able to afford a Benelli Super 90. The Beretta 1201 is similar-to-the-same under the skin. The action is smooth, the shotgun is very reliable, and you may not miss your pump-action shotgun.

Load it with reduced recoil buckshot—check for function—and you are well-armed.

7. Any .410 Shotgun

Winchester .410 PDX
This is a Winchester .410 PDX sectioned by the author.

Be it a Remington 870 or a single shot, the inoffensive .410 is a favorite game-getter for small game. The .410 is among the most underrated of firearms. It is a long gun that is easier to use than, well, any handgun.

The .410 offers a reasonable choice for home defense loaded with buckshot. Think about it: a high capacity 9mm or a .410 with buckshot in the hands of an occasional shooter. Which is the more formidable?

8. Ruger 10/22 Rifle

Ruger 10/22 semi auto rifle
 

Just as the handgunner needs a good .22 as his or her foundation, a rifle shooter needs a good .22 rifle. The .22 self-loader is the most versatile choice. The Ruger 10/22 is reliable, upgradable, accurate and a host of accessories are readily available.

I have seen quite a few .22s put meat on the table during my lifetime. The .22 rifle is also a baseline for personal defense in rural areas. It is a good choice for the everyday shooter that needs something for recreation, personal defense and to keep critters off the ranch.

9. AR-15

Daniel Defense AR-15 truck gun
So, the AR-15 in a feature on guns for old folks? Yes. If you have been competing with an M1A in .308 and the expense, recoil and weight are just too much for aging bones and a fixed income—a match grade AR-15 is just the trick.

If you have been a varmint shooter and your arthritis is messing with bolt manipulation, the AR gives up little if anything in accuracy to bolt guns.

If you have been hunting deer with the .308, then the .223 will make the grade with a properly bonded core bullet, such as the Federal 62 grain. And you just may find a friendly, accurate light kicking rifle you enjoy firing very much.

10. 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle

Savage 110 Apex 6.5 Creedmoor
My 6.5 Creedmoor is a Savage 110 Apex. It’s light-kicking, accurate, affordable and topped with a Vortex scope that has given the author excellent results.

If you are looking for a versatile all-around game, getting the 6.5 Creedmoor is easy on the budget and the shoulder as well. It is an ideal cartridge for older shooters.

Conclusion

As we age, the mental elements are affected, and our mental operations suffer as a result. Just the same—if you are a bit off from your very best, you may remain very good at what you are doing.

  1. For a sneak peek into my safes, all you have to do is look over the stuff I’ve bought from you!
    As a hard chargin’ military & police weapons instructor, I’ve always loved the heaviest toys, but I’m 66 now. I recently bought a Mountain Gun in .45 Colt and I can’t wait to get rid of that kickin’ so-and-so. Also I seem to have become inordinately fond of a 4″ S&W 1903 K-frame .32-20 and its new-to-me sister, a Browning B53 in the same neat little caliber. Not gettin rid of the .44s, .45s and .450 BM though.

  2. OK Folks, I’m about ready to hit 74. I think that qualifies me as a “Seasoned Citizen.”

    Shooting with red dot sights makes all the difference in the world for seasoned citizens. I have been shooting a Glock 19 with Leupold Delta Point Pro. However, I recently switched to a Trijicon SRO because of the larger field of view.

    The Glock 9mm is a fairly easy shooting handgun. I shoot the Glock Sports Shooting event held in Nampa, ID each year. It’s GREAT living in a free state. In the GLOCK’em event I had no misses at all shooting in the “Unlimited” category. Not bad for an oldster.

  3. I have found getting into handguns, at a late age, totally counter intuitive. I had tendonitis in my strong hand wrist. Had never fired a handgun before. Only M1s and m14s in the military. I found the 9mm ok but didn’t like the recoil impulse. Decided to try 357 magnum in a much heavier gun. Loved it! My wrist has improved noticeably, I assume from the exercise. I then got a Glock 21 and also love to shoot that gun. None of that was even on my radar when i started out with a 22 SA revolver. I’m as surprised as anyone about the outcome of my little adventure.

  4. One of the best advances for older shooters in recent years isn’t even gun, it’s the red dot holographic sight.

  5. I crossed over the 70 line a couple years ago and I guess that qualifies me as being older. I qualified as a small arms expert in 1967 in the USAF but I had been shooting 22 rifles, 12 and 20 shotguns since I was 10 years of age. I always loved shooting hard recoiling firearms (12 gauge magnums, 454 Casulls, 44 magnums, 357 magnums, etc.), however, I have reached that stage in life where age has become a undenieable factor. Hopefully, I will still will be able carry my 357 magnum revolver until I reach 80 -God willing. While shooting hundreds of firearms (rifles, M-16s, ARs, shootguns, pistols, & revolvers) over the past 60 years, I found that the easiest to load and handle are barreled revolvers – especially those that accept low velocity 38 special cartridges – that includes 357 magnum revolvers & all of them accept the 38 special shells. If movement of the fingers is a problem, the hammerless double-action is easier when pulling the trigger. Maybe I will buy one as 80 approaches?

  6. Everyone seems to forget the 22WMR. Much better for a cc than a standard 22 or a 380.
    The S&W 351 is a great 7 round option or the Ruger LCR+ in 22 WMR.

  7. Any double barrel short barreled 20,28 or 410 can do the job.If a older shooter has mental degenerative problems.Maybe it’s time to reevaluate there owning a firearm.

  8. Hard to go wrong with the judge. Hard to believe it was not on the list. The recoil isn’t that bad. Also the baby rock 380, that’s the Rock Island Armory 1911 .380 Don’t understand why all these reviewers and gun writers always go for the high dollar powder burners. Us social security chillen gots shaller pockets.

  9. I have a High standard model B, probably 75 years old left over from WW2 that shoots rings around any Ruger, and only have to remove the bolt to clean. Don’t diminish 9mm as being soft. My 39 Smith will kill as well as a1911, I know I have both and at 70 would recommend either to an old fart of any size.

  10. I’ll be 68 in 45 days. My everyday-carry is a 5-shot 44MAG Taurus. I use a 6lb 6oz 30/30 lever gun and a 6lb 8oz 30.06 bolt action carbine for deer hunting, depending on terrain. My ‘AR’ platform is a ’10’ not a ’15. My ‘pillowgun’ is a 16ga pump cut down to NFA limits. I do have 10/22s and Ruger 22 autos and Heritage SA 22s, but I usually use these for practice and introducing new shooters to the sport. I almost forgot; I use a 12ga SXS for shooting clay birds.
    I’m not planning on giving up my firepower any time soon.
    Skrew that ‘older shooters’ stuff.

  11. I have a SAR K2P 9mm At my age (64) my grip is not what it once was so its hard to work the slide, also have a Browning High Power 9 mm which is a bit easier to work, Plus a couple of Ruger pistols, after reading this I’m going to check out the 308s an going to compare shop Great read!! Thanks

  12. Yes, I’m among the arthritic oldster generation.(Hey, I’ve got one original leg joint !) I do more enjoy the .22 over the .44 and the good ol’ Marlin model 60 gets a lot of use along with the .38. Still, I drag the Mosin Nagant M44 out to the range now and again and lay in bed and cry the next couple of days. It’s worth it to see the youngsters jump and stare at the fireball. Just bought my wife the 4.5″ barreled Rough Rider and it is a great little gun for both of us.

  13. After telling those darn kids to get off my lawn, getting my reading glasses, and securing my walker, I read this article.
    I still like my S&W 38 revolver. Reliable, accurate, and an excellent tried and true cartridge.

  14. I’m retired LEO. I liked the weight of my Glock 27 but wanted a 9mm instead of a 40. So I went to the Glock store and bought a conversion barrel and 15rd glock mags which work perfectly for me. Now I have a high compacity, heavier more accurate 9mm. Conversion can be better and cheaper then buying another gun unless you just want another gun as many of us do! I also bought an FNH 12 ga SLP. It’s their LEO semi auto.

  15. A 71 yrs old shooter recommend Walther PPK 380, Sig Sauer P938 9mm, S&W 442 38+P as conceal weapons and CZ Scorpion 9mm Carbine

  16. For older shooters and those who don’t know they don’t know. I’d keep it simple. Snub nose 38 revolver with +p ammo for defense. It’s reliable, ready to go and safe. Everybody needs at least 1 22cal rifle. For plinking and stray pests. For heart and home a mossberg 410 with bird shot. Up close bird shot is devastating and it won’t over penetrate. As for the other guns in that list, everyone needs an ar they’re just fun to shoot. Try to stay away from the 380. It’s underpowered in my experience and the 38 is just a better round.

  17. First, I just turned 74 and have upgraded all my weapons from .357 to .45 ACP. I recommend the Kahr PM45 upgraded to a 6 round Mag in boot carry with 2 spare 6 round mags in the opposite boot as a back up.. The 7 round mag is too big to easily get pant leg up exposing it for use. This gun can also be carried on the hip with 2 spare mags.

    I also carry a Para Black Ops Recon upgraded with 16 round Mag, IWB, with 2 spare 16 round mags also IWB in opposite waste band.

    Both my Sam Browns have been upgraded to the Recon with 3 spare mags.

  18. I’m only 69 and my wife is 66, I got her a S&w EZ and she shot it once but she is a revolver gal. I started her out on my Colt Python and she will shoot noting but a revolver??? I probably caused this, cause that is what I shot for years. I am trying to get her to the range more to practice w the EZ but she still carries a 5 shot light 38+P revolver so I want her to carry something she is comfortable and confident to shoot. I know one thing I usually carry a Glock 31 but have back problems so carry a Glock 33 as well. I have shot the EZ and it is one very accurate pistol, and can hit the center and provide a fist size pattern even at 25 yards.

  19. Surprised to see the Standard Ruger 32 semi, but I agree whole hearedly.
    As an aside, I bought a Ruger standard in 1968 upon return from Nam and for three months streight fired at least one brick of 500 ends week.
    Used it hunting rabbits and grouse,(Blues and Ruffed) and to dispatch wounded and dying slow deer, elk andnBear.
    Sold it to wifes cousin in 1976 and he still has it today.
    Disagree slightly with authors mention of 380 not being a good self defense round.
    Todays 380 is not same rounds as say 20 years and past, the bullet designs powder and even primers have moved this round into what for years non NATO(European) or US civilian 9mm fmj was in the past that many thought was a very suitable self defence round.
    It is not just the 390 round that changed as even the twist rates now vary froM in past.
    Surprized when mention ease of racking slide no mention Berretta and Taurus tip barrels.
    As for those who do have problems with racking a heavy slide, a practice we learned was weak hand announced arm slide racking, some semis you could push down on hard surface, if proper design allowed.
    it many older semi had hold open last rounds, and boy some slides damn near needed weight training .
    Good article.
    RESPECT!

  20. Yes older! I have peaked at 82 yrs young and still an active shooter. I have to admit that I now have a 20ga double loaded with buckshot as my bedside companion and a 9mm S&W every day companion. I love the big bores but they’re just too punishing. Us older folks might be wrinkled but we are not out of the game yet.

  21. My best recommendation for ‘older’ shooters is don’t give up the guns you have but exercise to increase strength and endurance. I’m 67 and do so daily. It could add quality years to your life and make you feel great and confident at the same time..

  22. I am 63, not elderly, but I need reading glasses for non optic equipped firearms. I prefer a 1911in .45 ACP and a Colt (or clone) 1873 in .45 LC or .44 Special because they point so naturally, I can hit fairly small targets without needing the sights. reducing caliber when hunting of defending yourself is foolish and dangerous. a .22 is useless for anything but plinking and small game or pests.
    the unreliable nature of rimfire ammo should exclude its use on anything that really matters, ie self defense, not to mention its utter lack of power. while an AR is a fine platform, I have several, they are not suitable for big game here in the west, where a 30-06 sprg can be on the small side for some of the long range shots necessary for trophy elk and moose. while you did not mention the Marlin 336 and the Winchester 94 in 30-30, they are light low recoil and very effective on mule deer and even close range elk. I noticed you mentioned a Rem 870, which did not pass the military tests for reliability, the Mossberg did, and is a much better design. instead of the firearms you picked, think .38 special, 327 magnum, 40 S&W, 30-30, 243 win etc.

  23. At 80 I’m still shooting .45. An HK45 fitted with a CT green laser, and a custom 1911 race gun fitted with a Leupold 7.5 MOA Deltapoint Pro allows me to have fun and be competitive at the range with controlled recoil.
    Semper Fi!

  24. My dad, a former LEO and machinist, when he turned 70, traded in his Colt Python for the above Ruger .22 and a Taurus Judge composite 410/45 Colt. He carried three 410 defense rounds and two .45 Colt HP and had them when traveling or in his nightstand. When we went fishing or camping he only carried the .22. I know that if necessary, he could have put 10ea .22 HP shots into a quarter at 15 yards so stopping a would be thug was no problem either way.

  25. It would be nice if you recommended something that handled snake loads and hollow points. Not all seniors are able to rack a slide easily. The revolver you started with isn’t even mentioned. Should be considered. Thanks

  26. I would also put the Marlin XL 7 in 25-06 in the list. My wife uses my rifle, it’s light, had a good balance and light in the recoil. I would also put the RIA 10mm, I love mine, I’ve over 500 rounds through mine, not one jam, awesome pistol

  27. At 85 I still shoot several times per month. My favorites are the Springfield 9 mm and the Smith 9mm Shield. My .45s are not so much fun anymore.

  28. I have a 5-foot nothing granddaughter that doesn’t have a bunch of forearm and grip strength. Altho’ not an “older”, the same will apply to them as well. I bought for her (she can’t have it until fully trained) a Beretta 3032 INOX Tomcat (see earlier post). The tilt-up barrel is a life saver to her and also contributes to safety since the round in the chamber can easily be cleared without racking the slide. .32 caliber insufficient for self-defense? Anyone volunteer to stand in front of it?

  29. Note on Beretta Tomcat:. Be sure of the ease of operation before buying! A lady, age 70+/-, I was helping choose a EDC gun got stuck with a Tomcat by a Pawn Shop Commando bought one before I could examine it. It had the black finish and the button that released the barrel was so stiff it put a blister on my thumb after a few minutes trying to manipulate it. She never could! She eventually stuck her husband with it, he thought it was cute. Being a difficult student, she eventually ended up with two .38 revolvers, one 2″ and one full size 4″ ‘like her Daddy’s’.

  30. Although I agree that .22 cal is an inexpensive, accurate and enjoys a light recoil I wonder if arthritic hands can load the Ruger nautilus magazines. If arthritic hands are an issue I would put a .22 DA revolver at the top of the handgun list. As for the rifle the Marlin mod.60 with a tube magazine or even a Henry lever action with a tube magazine might fit the bil. Of course all suggestions are dependent on the capabilities of the shooter regardless of age.

  31. I have a Ruger 9 MM PC Carbine it is easy to handle, load and is incredibly accurate. I fitted it with a cheap red dot sight ($34.99 at Wally World) . I joke with people saying that a legally blind person can accurately fire this gun. It also has very low recoil. Great piece for older shooters.

  32. I have a few of the aforementioned firearms. Maybe AGE isn’t the defining thing… it is the physicality of the shooter… I love my 22cal handguns and rifles but I also have 308 and 30-06 as well as the “40 Family” handguns..40S&W, 45 GAP and 45 ACP. even the 357 MAG.. At 71, I limit use only by distance to targets. I also enjoy building the AR platform “tinker toys”… in 223/5.56×45, 300 AAC and 7.62×51(308).

    My rule… shoot and enjoy what you are safe and comfortable with…. AGE be-damned

  33. I’m a big fan of the Beretta .32 Tomcat .Flip up barrel makes for easy loading for anyone , external safety , and very comfortable one-handed shooting .

  34. I’m 73 and have a 380 shield ez. I love this gun, love it. Easy to change mags, soft to shoot, easy to take off safety. I have the extra safety and feel confident there will never be an accident. Taking the safety off is automatic as you pick up the gun as everything on this gun is in perfect reach for my hand.

  35. At 67, just picked up my first Colt Lightweight Commander 45 acp. Ordered a compensator from Valkyrie Dynamics for 40 bucks. Can’t wait for my Underwood 45 ACP+p 230 gr fmj and 51 ft-lbs of energy. All fits nicely in my Bianchi shoulder rig. Do not go gently into that good(?) night. Semper fi & semper fortis. Tom

  36. Glock 42 .380 or Glock 43 9mm…either of those with a rack assist or slide pull charging handle from The Glock Store make racking a slide a breeze for someone with arthritic hands.

  37. The Bersa 380 Firestorm is a great pistol, easy to fire and extremely accurate for being so small. My wife who doesn’t have much upper body strength can easily handle it. When I go target shooting it is the first pistol I shoot so I had to get a second one. Normally under $300.

  38. I would like to add the Remington Recon Commander in 9mm to your list. It is so well-balanced that the weight isn’t noticeable when shooting, recoil is minimal, and the slide is easy to rack. Carried in a SnapRig holster, the gun is easy to conceal despite its being a full-sized service weapon. 18+1 capacity is also a comforting feature.

  39. Due to multiple spine surgeries to both the neck and lower spine I found the .308 caliber difficult to deal with. The recoil of my Remington 700 and my M&P AR-10 was just more than I could deal with. I think that I found the perfect replacement. I bought a Ruger American Ranch in 300 blackout. It is an effective caliber for hunting deer or other game up to 200 yards depending on the load you choose. The 300 blackout has minimal recoil with a 120 or 150 grain round and no more recoil than a .22 with the 200 grain sub sonic round. The gun is light weight and easy to carry. I have been very impressed with the accuracy of the rifle.

  40. I would advise older gentlemen and ladies to do some hand and wrist strengthening exercises and i am confident you can handle 45, 40, 9mm etc. You don’t need to be a hulk to handle these but a little exercise goes a long way.

  41. While the 6.5 is an excellent round, the 5.56/.223 should be included. At 68 I hunt as often as I can for pigs and deer. My Ruger American ranch is a lightweight, easy shooting, deadly accurate go to rifle, that isvery inexpensive to shoot.

  42. I disagree with Larry H. I have a Tomcat 32 cal & it gives a nasty bite & kick in the hand.

    I have dupuytren’s contracture in my hands therefore makes racking a slide an adventure. A great device http://handi-racker.com/ has kept me in the game with my beloved Kimber TLE 45.

    I was also considering the 380 EZ but it was still a little stiff when I came upon the Handi-Racker. Total game changer at least for me.

    Blessing, Roman

  43. I’m 61 and had a nasty motorcycle accident with a distracted driver and have 12 screws in my neck. Though I’m strong enough now to rack the slide on my 1911, I sometimes like carrying a S&W 638 Bodyguard because of its’ light weight and doesn’t take a lot of strength to shoot. I installed a larger Hogue grip to make it easier to handle. For the house, I have a Ruger Vaquero in 357 magnum, that’s had an action job done to it to make the hammer easier to cock and but also keep it reliable. I’ll carry a 1911 as long as I safely can, but don’t feel undergunned with either the 638 or Vaquero.

  44. I qualify as an older active senior. I have arthritic wrists and found the EZ was very easy to rack. Mine resides under my pillow. However, it lacks a lot of punch but with a laser sight if I can paint it, I can hit it. I also have a Sig P320C RX the red dot compensates for old eyes and trifocals and it also helps as additional leverage for racking the slide. AR’s tend to be a little heavy for me, that includes a Windham Weaponry CF version. I would propose an alternative not mentioned, the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1. Light, about 5.5 pounds, easy to arm, low recoil, and very accurate. I have loved this pistol since the first magazine. It is also relatively inexpensive to shoot compared to a 5.56 or 300 BO. Great article. Thank you.

  45. With an old injury from combat, my back is not what it used to be after four surgeries, I was forced to downgrade from .40CAL to 9mm. All my new pistola are 9mm. I still have some hard hitting rifles and shotguns but mostela stay in the safe. Let me tell you, getting old is not for sissy’s.

  46. A few things need to be better defined…”older” and experience level. I’d say half those would be disqualified for novice shooters or truly elderly!

    My wife has the 380 EZ, and I love that things. it WILL create distance or even be lethal if you make your mark!

  47. I recommend rifles on the AR platform because of weight and
    low recoil like ATI 410 also berretta tomcat for those with arthitis
