    This is a pretty good list compiled by Joe Huffman (boomershoot) and R.A. Steindler (annotated with an asterisk*). Maybe we can add a few and share this with the media and gun control people to elevate the quality of their messages.

    This is cool. I've never known the exact meaning of MOA, should have looked it up before this I suppose. At the time I don't shoot any long guns. This list would make a good sticky topic for those outside the fire arm owning comunity that actually have an interest in LEARNING about fire arms. There may be a few out there....
