I also have both 1- and 2-stage Kidd triggers. If the 2-stage comes in versions, that's news to me. The weight is adjustable. Somewhat complex to do yourself or you can send it back to them.

Those cannot be safely dry-fired. Any .22 can be safely dry-fired as long as the firing pin is not peening the breech face. In many cases that's a matter of individual guns and not the make and...

A $120 Gamo with a $35 trigger, a little polishing and a decent scope after the OEM scope breaks (making it a $200+ Gamo) can be a pretty nice rifle. So are some others.

It wasn't my idea. One of our many gurus suggested it some time ago. The logic behind it is that when you apply heat, the aluminum receiver will heat up and expand much faster than the solid SS...

Depends on whether it's male or female.

Just the other day I swung at one (it was a female) and I could hear her smirk "You missed". Then she tried to turn her head.
