RE: The Gun Thread
It scares me when people have that many guns. Maybe it is just because I live somewhere that guns are not readily available. Tongue

RE: The Gun Thread
lol. I bought them over a long period... Not that large a collection compared to many, plus as far as danger is concerned, one gun vs. several makes no difference. Mine are all locked in a safe with 1.5" steel walls & door, rated to 3hrs in a fire @ 1400 F... Ammo is kept elsewhere. Most are registered except the .22 rifles (gifts), Lee Enfield (gun show, private purchase) and the Kentucky Long Rifle (hand built). I only have ammo on hand for the Mosin Nagant and the AR-15, since those are the two I take to the range the most (volume = cheaper w/ ammo). The others are as useful as bats or thrown objects for defense Tongue

Better without God, and happier too.

RE: The Gun Thread
I got a Noble .22. It's lever action and has a tubular feed magazine.
Found it in pieces in my Dads garage last summer (that's your winter) and he said if I could put it back together I could have it. So 20minutes later and I owned a rifle.
Problem is the firing pin has been shaved down so it can't actually shoot unless I get another one which sucks balls, wanted to shoot me some rabbits.

RE: The Gun Thread
i'm a "gun guy" as well. i carry a taurus 9mm millenium pro every day, and pretty much everywhere i go. i'm going to buy a ruger LCP pretty soon cuz they are so small and would be easy to carry, and also so that there will be a gun at home with my wife while i'm not there. i would love to have a collection, but the funds just aren't there right now, collecting guns is expensive!

some time in the near future i'd like to get the S&W M&P 15-22 rifle just for fun at the range.

What do you have to do as far as registering that gun with the local authorities in Australia?

Nice. I like the Taurus line of handguns and I want to get a Raging Bull in .44 Magnum. Never shot the Ruger LCP but I do own a Ruger Single Six Convertible .22LR/.22WMR as well as a Ruger Mark III hunter - both nice guns.

I think you'll be happy with a S&W M&P 15-22. I have always been happy with Smith & Wesson Products, owning an M&P Pro Series 9mm (customized with a 3.5lb trigger), an M&P .22 and a Model 686 Plus in .357 Magnum (beautiful gun!).

yeah taurus makes nice guns at good prices, that's why i bought mine. i want the LCP since it's super small and i can just throw it in my pocket, and rugers are nice and smooth. i was going to get the keltec P3AT but after messing with one at bass pro, i think i'll spend the extra coin for the ruger.

the 15-22 looks great. i've read up on it quite a bit and it gets good reviews, and it's cheap. i'd love to have an AR15 but even if i bought one, i'd just put a .22LR receiver on it for cheaper ammo anyway so i figure i'm just as well off getting the 15-22

the 1911 is a great design, nothing wrong with liking it. i'm currently taking classes to be a precision machinist and i'm very strongly considering getting the license to produce firearms, and if i do i'll likely just make custom 1911 parts.

Nothing wrong with a classic 1911. The Philippine brand Rock Island Armory makes some great 1911s at really great prices.
