Can you elaborate on this please? Why would it make sense with those and what's an SAO? I assumed semi automatic <something>.
Single-Action Only. It means the hammer must be cocked for the gun to fire because the trigger only serves to drop it. In other actions pulling the trigger will raise the hammer and then drop it in one motion.

It doesn't make a lot of sense there either, though, because the gun is useless when uncocked and as a result everyone carries it cocked with the safety on.

A lot of the other guys were packing some really ancient-looking Smith & Wesson rimfire pistols.
The Model 41 owns hard.

As a raw amateur you're not likely to see a huge difference between a nice .22 pistol and a really nice bullseye pistol. However, if you ever become competitive at bullseye it's basically a given that you'll move up to a S&W41 or a worked-over Ruger. Even then it still wouldn't hurt to have a Buckmark around.

Also, in general the logic to a long-barreled bullseye pistol is how it balances in the hand. Extra weight in the barrel is generally considered a positive thing. The long-barrels aren't inherently more accurate.

Where do you go to sell your guns? Is a pawn shop a good/reliable place to buy or sell a gun?
You can sometimes get a good deal buying one there, usually if it's so unusual that they don't really know what it's worth or so dirt-common that they just want it out the door.

You should never sell a gun to them. You'd be lucky to get half of what it's worth.

Supports I guess? Reserve Battalion 101 was a group of perfectly average men, not chosen for any specific politics, who would go into a town and kill any Jews they found even when their superiors made it clear that they could freely opt out of the more gruesome assignments.

Why is the government profile AR barrel so weird? Is there a reason to chose it over lightweight profile, besides the m203 option?
There's no M203 notch on a government profile barrel.

Edit: It's weird because it tapers underneath the handguard where no one can see it on a finished rifle. It saves weight. Most lightweight profiles are only a few ounces lighter.

I'd be a LITTLE more wary of using PP since I'm not sure what, exactly, the chemistry is that makes ammonia a no-go, and if it's an oxidation reaction you could still get something with the hydroxide half of PP.
I believe ammonia is bad because it's viciously corrosive to copper, which is underneath the nickel plating and can be exposed by even a tiny nick. Non-ammonia cleansers should be fairly safe even if they are harsh chemicals.

Big, heavy guns seem like they should be more powerful but you should keep in mind that a bigger, heavier gun always recoils softer than a small gun in the same caliber. Too many tiny women get recommended tiny guns that are really unpleasant to shoot.

How sensitive are primers? Are they only sensitive to sharp shocks like hammers striking them? Or would a gradual application of the same amount of force cause them to fire? What does one need to be worried about when handling ammunition (specifically concerning the primers)?
They're entirely shock-sensitive. There's really no concern at all about handling them, only a completely ridiculous freak accident would lead to one accidentally being set off.

Without intending to be too much of either a smartass or a dumbass, but what does the muzzle of the gun have to do with measuring impacts on a target?
Because unless your gun is really hosed up, the bullet will travel in a perfectly straight line down the barrel and leaving the muzzle is the first point where it may start to deviate.
