    Guns!

    Anyone shoot guns? I mainly shoot .22's for practicing my breathing and my sight alignment, since I'm a begginer I have a semi-auto .22 and a .22 revolver. I'm planning on getting a Russian Mosin Nagant or a 9MM Makarov. So if anyone shoots, post your gun! Also, don't start a "OMG YOUR A HICK!" or a "AMERICANS AND THEIR SILLY GUNS" debate. Thank you!

    I was watching a good CSI episode last nigh about guns.

    Strict gun policy in Ireland, so I don't have any. Wouldn't want any regardless. I've gone clay pigeon shooting, enjoyed it, but that was it. Just went once. Enough for me.

    Never heard of it. I like a lot of WWII guns. Like Russian Mosin, or the German K98, or American M1 Garand! Automatics are expensive and require a Class 3 license. But I think I might do it when I get older.

    I shot guns in the military. Standard Austrian Steyr STG-47 assault rifle (I believe the international name is AUG-something) and P-68 pistol (a Glock, I think).

    Not since then. I'd have to get a license, and it's expensive and I really don't see the point.

    12-gauge Shotgun pump, Remington 1220 I think. . .
    270 Remington riffle.
    Oldtimer 12-gauge single shot.
    .22 single shot

    Haven't hunted in a while. . . became a vegitarian 3 years ago, but was a good shot with the 270 @ 100 yards.

    You got it right, it's the Steyr AUG!

    Well buying guns and collecting them is a hobby. Some like to collect old and new weapons. It's owning a piece of history like a Thompson SMG or M1. Sure it's expensive, but what isn't in this world? Everyone has their own hobby. Some cut hair for a living, and need $200 scissors. I think it's a waste of money, but it's their hobby, and should be respected. I also realize you weren't offending me, but I just wanted to elaborate!

    I shot guns while in the Army. The Heckler & Koch G3 and the Galil assault riffle. I also fired 9mm Glocks.

    After the army I didn't hold a weapon anymore. Weapons don't interest me.

    I had a .22 calibur rifle. I don't even remember the brand because it's been so long since I fired it, or been interested in firearms. I had to dispose of all my ammo when my mom had like, a suicidal episode.

    I'd rather learn something awesome like swordfighting but you can't do that in my area.

    Got me an HK USP .45 Compact. Haven't shot it in years. Before that I had a S&W SW9F (I think) 9mm that I traded in to get the HK. A couple people at work are really into guns and hunting... Winchesters, .270s, KAR98s, black powder rifles, Martin Henris, Arisaka (Japanese rifle?), Lee Enfields and pistols gallore.
