  • The title reminds me of a guidebook but also demonstrates the strength of family.

    I remember first watching this episode back when I was learning much about guns and firing guns. I actually learned some of the vital imformation from what Bobby reviewed. This was a great episode that truly dived into the estranged relationship between Bobby Hill and his father Hank with the one thing that could heal their bond: guns and the father-son shooting contest. Priceless quote form the episode: When Bobby asks if he can put a gun rack on his bike, Hank responds, "Do you know how long I've been waiting for you to ask me that?"

    I also couldn't help but feel sorry for Hank seeing as how he had to put up with the aggresive hate coming from his father Cotton (though Cotton is sometimes one of the funniest characters on the show) and how he was, in a sense, saved by his son. That was good.
