  1. Talking got my first handgun today


    buddy of mine showed me around the area and led me to a little hole in the wall gun shop that looked ready to take over france........ok, bad example.

    anyhoo, got me Glock .45

    damn the man that breaks in my house. after my dog attacks his ankle, he's got a .45 waiting behind door #2.


  2. Sweet Beelze, I also have a glock .45 model 30(the small compact) I love mine, small but a hand cannon!

    yup, same one i got. 10 + 1, right? little dude looks ready to blow holes through tanks. got a box of hollow points and another box for targeting.

  4. little ****er is a little difficult to take apart the first time, but i got it under control now.

  5. Yup 10+1... yeah its a little tricky at first but once you do it a couple of times it is easy.

  6. i was looking at getting one last year. it was a hk .45 it was soooo nice but it was also like $750. i think its best i dont own one while on tren. i see bad things going down.

  7. h&k's were a little pricey. the glock i got was ~570bucks. decent price i thought.

    as for gear with weapons. if you have that type personality, then yeah, stay away from firearms.

    no offense intended, but all the gear in the world doesn't give permission to make an ass out of yourself. it's a myth anyway.

    I agree!

  9. none taken. but i DO have a shorter temper when im on.

  10. I got my first handgun about 6 years ago and absolutely LOVE IT.

    Sig Sauer P226 in 9mm - not the biggest boomer at the range but it's one of the most (if not #1) reliable and best designed handguns in the world.

    Glocks are nice too but I think my next one will be a nickel plated Colt Python revolver - those things are just about as gorgeous as a firearm can be.

  11. Being a Canadian I really don't understand the American fascination with guns. More importantly with hand guns. Guns for hunting I can understand but nothing else.

    Well I'm not a behavioral psychologist but I was born in Lebanon (though not Lebanese) and lived there till I was 5 before moving to the States, so that could have something to do with it.

    Basically I look at it as any other hobby, albeit one that needs to be taken more seriously and handled with much more care than most others.

    The guns I own are either for target shooting at gun ranges or can be used for hunting purposes. I don't own what are considered to be "assault" weapons, but that's not because I have something against them, only because I havent gotten around to purchasing any yet.

    Let me just say though that in the eyes of the (especially liberal) government officials, steroids are the new "guns".

    If you were ever in a situation where you needed one, you'd understand. A few things are underneath the US fascination with guns. One, a free populace is an armed populace, because that's the ultimate determinant of where the power of a nation originates: who has the weapons. Two, an armed populace is a safer one. Criminals look for easy victims, not ones that shoot back. They're not in it for the challenge. Three, guns are awesome. They're beautifully made, fun to shoot and practice with, have long histories and make a great hobby. Four, they require discipline and responsibility, and one of the steps toward manhood in the US used to be when your dad judged you old enough and responsible enough to handle the guns, be it for protection or hunting. The associations remain.

    Being an American I don't understand why Canadians tack the word "hey" on the end of every sentence. But it's cute when chicks do it, so I never really minded.

  14. Post some pictures of them if you can guys. I was thinking of getting a Glock Compact as well. But I was thinking of getting a 9mm. Not really sure what I want, either that or a Beretta (like I shot with in the military).

    Well there is the mentality that everyone has gun so I am at a disadvantage and could lose my life if I don't have one.

  19. I never really liked glocks that much, but i did get a Desert Eagle Mark XIX .44 mag which i love to shoot. So i went out i bought the barrel and magazine to convert it to a .50 cal. but my hand starts to hurt around bullet 4 or 5 so i switched it back.

  20. The Desert Eagle 50 cal is a little overkill, unless you need to take out a dinosaur.

  23. just wandered onto the thread, nice choice bee, i keep my 21 by the bed every night. you should be able to find 13 rnd mags pretty easy with the ban lifted. it's a very reliable tack driver.

    VA is pretty simple. you'll need a photo ID with a current address on it (drivers license) and another form of something verifying your address (i used my checkbook). fill out a couple of papers, they do a background check (takes 5 minutes), then you've got yourself a gun.

  28. God Bless the Commonwealth then. I'm heading up there in a week, but don't have the funds until my birthday. I believe Florida's gun laws are pretty easy to work with.

    if i can't hit 'em with 11 shots, then **** 'em. 2 more shots ain't gonna help me with something that fast.

    cali is a horse of a different color with guns. like a 10 day background check, credit check, hemorroid check, etc.
