What is the most popular caliber 30.6 rifle?

I'm assuming you meant a 30.06 rifle. The most popular rifle does not guarantee that you will agree with it's status. Many people do not like the 30.06. It can be a punishing round to shoot from a rifle that isn't "customized" for you a bit. In choosing a weapon, you need to know your measurements, then compare them to the dimensions of the rifle...Go to a gun store, hold the weapon. See if it feels "right" for you. Then check the price tag, to see if it will fit into your wallet. It also matters what job you have for this rifle. You may find, with some research, that the .308 is a better match. Same bullet, slightly less velocity, very similar ballistics at close to medium ranges.

Can Nerf guns shoot real bullets?

No. Nerf darts have a hole in the back which is inserted or loaded onto a post inside the chamber or barrel which keeps them in place. Bullets do not have that hole and would not fit into any Nerf gun. And even then, Nerf guns rely on springs and air for power. Real bullets are fired using an internal hammer which strikes the back and sets off a chain reaction inside the bullet, which releases it.

What is the best handgun for a novice target shooter?

For a novice, the most fun and economical handgun to use is a .22 cal revolver. Preferrably with a 6" barrell and a good manufacturer, so you don't have problems with the weapon. Usually the guys behind the counter at a gun shop will steer you correctly. Don't be tempted to get something 'small'. You want something that will accomodate 22 short, 22 longs, and 22 long rifle ammunition. If you ever move up to a .22 cal rifle, you can use the same ammo. Probably a 9mm or .22 And make sure its a good gun Manufacturer like Glock Colt Or Ruger NOT SMITH AND WESSON, in the '90s they sided with Clinton and tried to cut back and eliminate guns and put HEAVY restraints on Buying them and they headquartered in Britain So you Wouldn't easliy deal with them. Be careful when buying a gun at a gun shop. While many gunshop salesmen will in fact "steer you correctly," many others will tell you whatever they think you want to hear in order to get you to make a purchase so they can get a commission.

*****

Some of the above is OK but I think it has been edited by I don't know how many people. Glock doesn't even make a .22, let alone a revolver.

A well made .22 revolver with a 6" barrel is indeed a good choice but these days those are few and far between. Semi-automatics are much more popular and widely available in an array of different well made models. A well made 6" .22 revolver will limit you to a couple of choices that will cost twice as much as a semi-automatic. Forty years ago it was different, but these days you want to go with a Ruger Mk III, Browning Buckmark, even a S&W 22a.

What are some ideas for improving target shooting if the target is blurred for the shooter?

Improving Your ShotOne idea might be to get you vision checked by an optometrist. You could possibly be near sighted and may be in need of some visual assistance. One thing for sure, you've got to see the target to hit it. Good luck with target practice.

Also if your eyesight is ok, next concentrate on that moving target, your dominant eye should take over and clear things up if you focus correctly. But is still having problems, try closing one eye and focusing to see if you can get a clear sight picture. The first answer is correct, you have to see and distinguish a target to hit it! Have a professional check to see which is your dominent eye.

On another tack....assuming your vision is corrected (or fine to begin with) there are two different approaches depending on the type of sights you're using..

1. Iron sights: Actually the more difficult of the two. You must constantly change your focus between the target at range, and the front sight post (or blade, whatever).

****

Another opinion:

It's not possible for the human eye to focus at two distances at the same time. With iron sights it's best to keep focus on the front sight. Proper sight alignment is critical, much more critical than the target being in focus. The size of the target, and any different colored center on the target, should both be of appropriate size for the range distance and the sights. Experiment with different targets and you will find some are easier to see than others.

****

2. Optical Scopes: More difficult to get "Dialed in". Depending on the scope and it's features, you have diopter adjustment at the very rear, range adjustment in front of that, and parallax adjustment at the far end. Not to mention the elevation and windage knobs. Once you get a scope dialed in, mark it, so if anything moves in transport, you can quickly reset the scope.

My recommendations--

A small pin-hole acts as a lens and clears up the view. This is part of the advantage of a pin-hole camera. You could use a peep-sight instead of open iron siges. I knew a older shooter who designed a peep hole device that he attached to his eye-glasses that acted as a pin-hole camera lens and it filtered out the fuzziness.

For target shooting with a pistol using iron sights, it is not necessary to see the target clearly. My recent instructor taught me to focus on the Front Sight and the Rear sight will be a little out of focus and so will the target.
