A dedicated customer base will let a company know what they desire in future products. At that point, you will see one of two things happen. The company will either listen fully and apply all the changes appropriately or the company will go their own way. There are two sub-categories to the latter. The company will apply changes in their own manner or not at all.
Solace: to make cheerful.
On occasion, a trip to the range comes with a desire to relax while seeking quiet entertainment. By far, the most fun that I have during range trips is when I go out shooting .22 LR in some form or fashion. The most annoying aspect of shooting rimfire, with my Tinnitus, is the periodic splattering of blowback from some rounds in semi-automatic rifles. It doesn’t diminish the quality of the experience, though. I challenge myself to take the white from inside the paper target’s diamond or removing clay pigeon chips off a range berm.
