Well, tis the time of year where movies such as Army of Darkness must be watched. This of course generates the question of... Who here are gun nuts? I've had many expensive hobbies over the years but have traded them all in and I'm now down to two: Motorcycles and guns.

My gun collection mostly consists of US GI rifles starting with the M1903 and everything since. Of course the modern toys are a real blast also. Sig MPX SBR, AR SBR, Kris Vector, PS90... They're all a lot of fun and great for filling the oven with bunny meat. My deer rifle of choice is either a springfield M1A, M1 Garand, Mosin Nagant, or the plain Jane Marlin 30/30 depending on how the mood strikes.

So... What are you guys rockin and what do you guys enjoy shooting the most?

I enjoy living in a country where gun ownership, gun crime and gun deaths are really really low.... :)


Each to his own of course....

A firearm is nothing more than a tool that increases ones capability if properly trained. A small stature person is now equal to a large sized person who is a threat. A person with a physical disability not able to fight off an attacker now has a means of neutralizing threats. Firearms are wonderful tools that have many applications. Sadly, people use them for evil as well. In the end, a firearm is only a tool no different than a phone used to dial the police. Always remember, firearm use is not the first answer to a threat. It?s only there if you need it in a life or death situation.

how does having a gun as "self protection" work? genuine question
REALLY?? This needs an explanation? I guess living in a socialist utopia keeps you safe...guess you have never had a shotgun put to your head as you are robbed or in a foreign country when you are exiting a cab, just because you are a "gringo"...been there done that...Lived in the woods where there is no law and ran off potential robbers at night with my AK...that got the word out in town as I was new there that "don't go down there messin' with that boy".....ordering 1000 rounds a week got the postmaster putting out the word as well...have had to fire warning shots multiple times on my 300 acre farm from deer hunters..had to trip wire my fences for them as well.....maybe you have never lived where you had to fend for yourself but I know I have!

A firearm is nothing more than a force multiplier and they are used in every single country in the world for security, defense and offense. It only makes sense that they should be available to anyone of sound mind and body anywhere in the world. That means anyone with a mental disorder like Bi-Polarism, Schizophrenia and liberalism should not be allowed to own them. Same goes for these phucktards that have been on Ritalin, Lithium etc since they were 3 years old because they wouldn't sit down and be still in kindergarten. They need to be prevented from owning firearms as well. You cannot artificially create a psyche in a child for 20 years then expect them to function properly in society when they decide to stop taking their meds...

If I had no alternative but to live in an area like you do, I would own guns as well.

I have fired UZI's (in use when we still had a conscript army), AK47/Sig Sauer/pump action (a collegue in NH invited me over for "a fun day out" while working in MA. It still baffles me till this day that people believe it is "normal" that every tom dick and harry can pretty much secure one (legally or illegally).

But what would you PREFER? If a majority wants something, a governemt will have to act imho.
And before you jump up, I'm a 54 year old who has travelled/worked in some 60+ countries in the world. Some nice, some borderline shitty... Including the USA where 2 guys in FLA decided to settle a parking lot argument by pulling out their handguns. Glad the rental car had a reverse gear... Being pulled over by the Boston police another time, seeing one cop approaching me with his hand on his hip and his colleague back at the squad car brandishing a rifle/shotgun was "interesting". "yes sir, it is late at night and we donot take risks"....



I bet some church goers in Texas were carrying, little good did it do the 26 human beings now dead. Perhaps the minister holding a 226 as well as the chalice would have deterred?

As an individual and as a group, one always has a choice. You are free to choose for yourself, I truly mean that.

Kind regards from the socialist (ahahahahahahahaha!!!!) Kingdom of the Netherlands.
With all its flaws, all in all, we aim (not through a cross hair BTW) for solidarity, where stronger shoulders carry a heavier burden. Because they can.



I think I will fire up my bike today and go for a little ride to honor those who died in yet again a mass shooting. I suggest we ALL fire up our RC's today and ponder on what we PREFER in life...

Probablly an agnostic, saddened by this drama, I looked up where baptist congregations meet near where I live and went out for a ride.
To give it some thought and pay a little respect.

i have a decent collection of ar's, glocks, ak's, a couple of garands, mosin's, etc and a few shotguns.

used to love shooting 3 gun competition, but can't find the time lately. deer season opens up in 2 weeks here, and i'll be toting a 300 bo sbr with a can on it. my stands are short range, so the ballistics of the 300 bo work for me.

Dutchy, I am incredibly jealous of your white RC. That is by far my favorite paint scheme and hate that it wasnt offered in the US.

Bailey, sounds like a sweet set up man. I was contemplating making my AR SBR a 300 but I have a Surefire Mini so it'd be pointless as I don't have any 30 cal cans. I bet that thing sounds wonderful when sending 208 gr subsonics through it huh? Best of luck getting Bambi in the freezer.
