Does anybody find this term to be overused, and maybe even a little silly? Apparently every rifle everybody shoots is a tackdriver. Just seems a little cliche. I'd rather use more tangible terms, like, "it'll shoot a 1" group", or even a simple, "its very accurate." Guess we all have pet peeves, and this is one of mine.

Thoughts?

Most things that most people say seem cliche to me. People find something they like, they wear it out, then use it some more.

Yup. I try to avoid cliches. I almost said "like the plague" but didn't, because that would be a chliche.

Seriously though, I do try to avoid them when I can, but we all say them sometimes I'm sure.

I've got more things to worry about.

I have shot real tacks from 100 yards, at a match. The stage was called "tack driver". Not every rifle and every shooter was able to clean it. confused2

It's a term everyone can understand. Should we start using 1/4 or 1/2 MOA?

All my guns are "Tack Drivers" "when I do my part". I load up my "clip" with bullets and I can put "all 3 rounds" "into one hole at 100", "when I do my part".

That about sums it right dear!

Youre not cool unless you say "hammer". If you're really cool you can say that you have a tack driving hammer

Clips are awesome. cheers

I stunk it up yesterday at the range. The force was not with me and no tacks were in danger. One of those days.

I'd venture to say its a term that nobody understands. It doesn't tell you anything that can be understood. Every guy who shoots 5 rounds a year, and can put a round into the vitals on a deer at 100 yards thinks his rifle is a tack driver. People can understand its a " 5 shot 1 1/2 inch group at 100 yards gun"

How do you feel about calling your gun a "platform" as if it were something you were standing on?

I get where it comes from, custom guns(I think) but some people use that word in place of "gun" so much that I would not have even known they were talking about guns if they were not holding one.

Every gun can shoot sub-moa for at least 1 shot.
