no real reason to send it back for repair, it works great, I was just being lazy and wanted to spend less time cleaning it. since you brought up TC, I had a question. Anyone have an impact? I was thinking about getting one for my kids to go deer hunting with me, since they have an adjustable stock. Also, what would be a minimum load recoil-wise but still ethically kill a deer at 50 yds, maybe 100yds max.
