  • Is firearm precision more important than speed?
  • Is a rifle better for home defense than a handgun?

Double Tap:

It is time for...Double Tap...Kinda.. So instead of having a question that is answered with a YES or NO, you will answer these questions with the first answer that pops in your head. You are still not allowed to explain...just the first answer that comes to mind…Ready?
