I was wondering who here among us owns firearms. What types of arms, favorite munitions, favorite firearms,etc.

me:

1) remington 700: great gun, basically a civilian version of the rifle most police departments use for sniping.

2) ruger 10/22: really dont care much for this one, I feel the same about most .22 calibre rifles. Something just doesnt seem right when you have a gun that can kill someone that doesnt have any recoil at all.

3) Sig P229: quite simply, a beautiful handgun, although a bit pricey(~999 USD even used), it is well worth it.

4)(this is my brothers, but oh well), a Springfield Army M1911A(known to most as a colt .45), this gun is pretty much GI issue quality, which is pretty good, considering the timeframe in which it was GI issue. Too bad the military has gone to berrettas.

out of them, my favorite is the remington 700, ~1 inch groupings at 200 yards is very very nice.

So what about you fellow gun owners(I know silvercord mentioned one time he likes to go shooting.)

That's mine... only mine has a fancy stock. It's the 30-06 High model. I have a real nice 3x9 scope on it too. I usually use 180 grain shells with a four shell clip.

me to, if you do have an HK full auto, does on of your parents own a class III license, cause you are not allowed to have machine guns without them.

I got me a HK USP .45 Compact. Haven't fired it in a long while (2+ years). Anyone know how to get a stuck decocking lever working again, mine doesn't want to work. Even just flipping the lever from "safe" to "fire" takes alot of pressure, hurts my thumb...

and a partridge in a pear tree

EDIT:
our mini 14 is old and doesn't look quite as good as that one, but it does have a collapsable stock. it pivots around the cylinderthing and i think it follows the m 16 in terms of caliber but i don't shoot guns often anymore

I'm sorry about your country banning guns. I use my gun to try to impregnant female genders of the human race. I use my rifle to shoot cans.

Heh, I'd like that. Nothing like an M4A1 with an attached M203 grenade launcher to make life more fun. :)

>>Target shooting?

Yes.... but you, in your infinite wisdom :rolleyes:, have to realize that target shooting has one goal and that is getting better at KILLING STUFF.

Now, granted, I'm sure there are people that only target shoot, and that's fine. I'm not slamming them or saying that isn't a valid reason to own a gun. I'm simply saying that *most* target shooters use targets to get better at hitting actual living targets.

Then I'm doing it :D In a civilized country without major bandit armies roaming the countryside I think privately owned guns do more harm then good.
I don't own a gun, I never fired a gun and surprisingly, I'm still alive and unharmed. Lucky me :rolleyes:

That does not mean you should not have fun at target practice, but shotguns or semi-automatic weapons have no place in target shooting. I mean where do we draw the line at what is legal ? Is a fist legal ? A knife ? A pistol ? A rifle ? A grenade ? A flamethrower ? A tank ? Granted that I would be the first to drive a tank around if it were legal and affordable, I think the line for safety of all citizens should be drawn at the pistol, when the primary intend of the item becomes killing. There is no tool function in a firearm, it's only purpose is to kill.

yeah, deer and other wildlife.

I might agree about the semi-autos, but that is BS about shotguns, ever hear of duck/quail/pheasant/turkey hunting? You dont use rifles as rifles are for precision work and when I bird has the full 6 degrees of movement, you need something that has a spread of some sort.


This was a thread about gun ownership, not meant to be turned into a flame war between both sides of the gun control debate.

I guess, but some of the weapons you all claim to own are a 'tad' excessive, dont you think?

Hell, if I lived in US I would like a handgun or something for home defence (as everybody it seems is armed!), but these big auto weapons?

To brag about owning them is the 'bad' side to this I think. Respect them more for what they are or something.

:) Dont shoot!

well, first of all, most of the people saying they have them are just being moronic, as with the exception of police and military, and those who are willing to take on the responsibility of a Class III license(they take inventory of your auto weapons, make sure you are not selling them illegally), you absolutely cannot have one.



To brag about owning them is the 'bad' side to this I think. Respect them more for what they are or something.

again, I meant for this thread to be a place for civil discussion about people's possesion, likes and dislikes about individual firearms, not to brag about who has the biggest gun.
