Hang In There!!!
Hang in there, Cardboard!!! There is no such thing as a silly question. The only silly one is the one not asked!!! We all started off new, knowing nothing about firearms. Some of us old coots become set in our ways and sort of figure the most people should know what we have learned over years of experience, trial and error, experimentation, reading and yes, even asking others for help!!! Keep right on asking. It will come with time. I'm just glad that we have folks like you who discover shooting and really want to learn what makes their firearm tick.
I used to be terrified to mess with the innards of a gun of any type (Damn, that was a long time ago!!! Yeah, I'm OLD, with a capital "O"!!!) Now, 40 some odd years after I started, I have no fear of sticking my fingers into any type firearm. I gathered all this before there was YouTube to help!!! BTW that is the single best incentive to learn about your favorite firearm. You get to let someone else take all the risks with THEIR firearm!!! You are left with a step by step reference as to how something works or how to easily perform any procedure on a firearm.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I watched a YouTube video on how to install a new mainspring housing that was posted by JMS-STLOU. After watching the video on a project I had never done before, I jumped right in and had it completed, with no issues, in less than 5 minutes!!

Nice, huh? BTW, thanks again, Jeff!!!
You only learn by doing and asking. So you just keep right on asking. You may get some grief from some of us old coots who are set in our ways. But, hey folks, remember back when YOU WERE THE NEWBY!!!! So, compadres, let's give old Cardboard a break and just enjoy watching him learn.
