Life is a learning curve. And then you flat-line. Sometimes you flat line, mentally, in the middle. This is an example. Just to update you, I’ve practiced and practiced and practiced the loading process for the North American Arms Black Widow .22 at home and gained proficiency. My forthcoming review will reflect a more, uh, practiced approach. Meanwhile, I have to say I’m developing a genuine fondness for the firearm—much as I did for Rubik’s cube back in the day. As for the laser, well . . . you’ll have to wait and see. So to speak.
