Re: how many giants are armed??

I have friends that live in the projects and they own guns. I've seen R-15's, AK-47's, M-16's, M-4's, 357's, glocks, and so on..

I don't own one myself. I believe they bring more problems than they solve. At least down here...

Everyone should have a side arm, but I would like to have a tank. I can feel the blasts from the tanks blowing crap up on Ft. Hood.

I dunno how it is there....
but invariably... when the bad guys have guns and "Law abiding citizens" don't... that is a recipe for victimization....

there are tons of stats showing that where there is strictest gun control.... gun violence increases... Washington DC comes to mind...ummmmm New York City.... and I am sure Australia's gun ban experiment has many examples of the bad guys not giving up their guns....

I support your right to not have a gun....

In the peoples republic of california, if it is a cool gun... it is illegal!

Re: how many giants are armed??

Over here you need a license to own a gun. You get investigated and stuff. Plus you need a good reason to own a gun. Like being a business owner or something like that. Being the father of a family is not a good enough reason down here.

Re: how many giants are armed??

a Police officer once said to me... (Before I owned a gun).... "better to be judged by 12 then carried by Six"

it somehow made sense....

Last nite, just off the freeway at 10:30, with my wife, I had to change a tire... guess who I had stuck in my belt....

Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson and 9 of their friends....
I am not paranoid... I am just not gonna be a helpless victim to some Ghettocans

Re: how many giants are armed??

N726AC, Good choice of firearm with the 1911. I used to build them for various types of shooting competitions. I never found a discipline the 1911 wasnt competative in. I won everything from 2700 bullseye matches thru the USPSA/IPSC events. Had allmost every caliber available at one time, includeing 9x21. Wow! that brings back memories.....Gene

I regularly carry a Beretta 96D (.40 S&W) in the winter or when wearing heavier clothing, and a smaller Beretta 948 when wearing light clothing. I love guns

Unless you plan on actually carrying it... or using it...

Not exactly the most practical gun.

Fun to shoot, though.. I rented a .44mag version at the range just for gits and shiggles. I was surprised at the light recoil; that gas system works well.

Re: how many giants are armed??

I don't presently own any firearms as my wife really despises them and gun ownership in Canada is becoming more and more dificult.

Here in Canada we need permits to purchase/own even amo now. Handgun permits are only issued for Transportation directly to/from home to Range/Club by most direct route. If you leave your house with your handgun and stop at Home Depot before or after going to the Range you can be arrested and charged! Permits to Carry are very rare and only issued to Military, Law Enforcment and Security Personel.

Collecting was the hobby, only ever target shooting no bambi slayer here and why shoot ANYTHING that flys!

I have owned the following;

Lee Enfield .303 Standard and Jungle Carbine
S & W 1914 .32 Lever Action Carbine
1911 .45 ACP
1946 AG 42b 6.5 x55mm Semi-Auto Sweedish Assault Riffle (One of the most accurate riffles I've ever fired) - Roughly a .306 casing with .25 cal round - M16's action principles modeled after this. Packs a punch with virtualy 0 muzzel jump - vented barrel.

And my favourite..........

S.P.A.S. 12 Combat Shotgun - 12 Ga dual action Pump/Semi-Auto, Folding stock, 8 rounds up the tube, 2.75 shells - SLUGS were my favourite but frowned on by the Range Officers This is now a Prohibited Firearm which my brother presently owns but because I gave it to him before they changed the laws he is Grandfathered in.

The Movie Prop Guys love to use the SPAS 12. First seen with Arnold in "Commando," then in "Beverley Hills Cop 2", Blinged out in "Aliens"... list goes on.
