Seeing all you responding is an inspiration. The S&W SMP 15-22 Sport Dark Earth is due to arrive with my FFL in 9 days.
I am 72, retired from international training in high tech and medical to begin a research orchard to improve nutrient quality in tree fruits --- so, not so retired.
The 15-22 is a shooting tool for a 14-year-old lad I have volunteer-tutored for the recent 4 years. He's spending a month with me this summer. He loves target shooting my pistols and is beginning to work toward using my .308. This S&W will assist him with fundamentals.
