I like guns, but I do not have or want one because of having children in the house. My husband used to have one and wants one, so I know that one day we will have one. I've made him promise that he will keep it locked away and with one of those safety things through it, with no loaded clip in it or near it. He sees no purpose in having a gun if it is all locked away. Anyhow, it's a on going discussion we have. :) My children are my number one concern and their safety. I have read too many stories of children as young as 3, finding their parents guns and killing another individual. I don't mind my husband having a gun as long as it is kept overly safe. He can take it out to the shooting range and have fun with it.

Used to have a .45 Glock. Sold it before I got married. I didn't have papers to it anyway :thumbdown. My next will be an HK .45 mm.

Beautiful...

I also like the Glock 17 .9mm. 17 rounds of maximum force.

When I get my HK, I'm going to pay the money to be able to carry it in public. ;)

Glock 9MM.

I like the power of the larger caliber, but the accuracy and higher capacity of the 9MM.

My grandfather is holding some *heavier weapons* for me back home in the hills.:D

Yeah, 9mms are better if you have more people to clean. Like that Glock 17 I posted. It holds 17 rounds. The HK .45mm, however, only holds 10 rounds. I still prefer the .45 because it's stronger.

From being closer in family history to our family members who were, or are law enforcement or military, my father is a fan of the 45 also.

We get in the 45 vs 9MM debate as a running joke, and at family gatherings to drive off the more liberal members of the family, so we can shoot the breeze freely.

Just a quick question: Do you prefer shotguns or rifles? Each has its own advantage. The shotgun is very powerful and good for cleaning out a school hallway while the rifle is pretty accurate and good for jobs like the Grassy Knoll. I personally don't really care for either of them because they're both hard to conceal...

For me it would depend on the situation. Since I have marksmanship training, if all hell broke lose in society, I would probably want the rifle for defense and survival in the hills and forests of home, but would want the shotgun and a pistol to get out of the metropolitan area I currently live in, and back up the interstate.

A friend of mine tells me that the recoil on his 18.5 Mossberg model 500 is fearsome. If I was going to either buy a rifle or a shotgun, I'd probably buy a medium powered deer rifle -- 30-06.

Well, I own an old .22 rifle (Saurio mod. 600 - an old, Argentine, but accurate piece), but haven't had the chance to fire it yet.
Sad, as I found out that my grandpa had 27 guns, including a Mauser C96, a Thompson SMG, several kinds of Mauser rifles...etc. Pitty, as they misteriously "vanished" after his death. The only one which fell into my hands was an old, beautiful Winchester -1892 if I remember correctly-. Unfortunately, there's a problem with the bloody barrel, and also the gun ain't legally registered.
If I was to buy a rifle (for deer), it would be a .270 Rem or a .300.
Other interesting calibers are the .223 Rem, the .22-250 and the new (and odd) .17 HMR. All of them for Varmint.
For pistols, I like 9 mm, 10 mm and .40, although I've only fired the first one. Preferrably German made (or Austrian, as Glock). An interesting caliber is the 5,7 x 28 mm made by FN. I think that the .45 ACP is a bit overrated (mainly by Americans :) ).
Rifle vs. Shotgun? Rifle all the way!

Yes, I have the following;

357 Smith & Wesson Custom Revolver
9mm Sig Sauer 239
30-06 Browning Stainless A-Bolt
12 GA Browning A-5
22. Cal. Custom Rugger 10-22
4-10 Browning
22. Cal Winchester Magnum
45 Cal. Colt 1991
And I only have 1/10 of what my father has in his collection. It consits of over 100 rifles/shotguns, 20 handguns and at least 5 nice military wepons.

We do our best to be savy and safe. Our amunition is locked in seperate vaults and we use exteme caution whenever we hunt and shoot.

All decent weapons. I've decided that I'm definitely going to buy a HK .45mm and get a concealed weapons permit so I can drive around with a gun in my car.

Yes, I have the following;


357 Smith & Wesson Custom Revolver
9mm Sig Sauer 239
30-06 Browning Stainless A-Bolt
12 GA Browning A-5

22. Cal Winchester Magnum
45 Cal. Colt 1991

At last count, I own 73 pistols ranging in age from 1630 to 1942 and in calibre from .32 to .59. I also own 11 long arms including muskets,a fowling piece, rifles, and shotguns. These range in age from about 1730 to 1959. My favorite pistol for shooting is a WWII .38 Webley and my favorite rifle for plinking is a .25-20 Winchester Model 43. I also shoot an 1898 .45-70 "trapdoor" Springfield. Most of my firearms are muzzle-loading and of mainly historical interest, though, all but a few are shootable. I enjoy shooting black powder rifles, especially my .50 cal.flintlock Hawken. I have a reproduction Remington .44 revolver which, despite a defective cylinder advance pawl, is fun to shoot. Obviously, I am mainly a collector and target shooter. I do not hunt. I keep my Webley ready and loaded for self-defense. As you might guess, I am a lifelong (though not Life) member of the NRA.

I own a Savage arms Model 111 30.06 rifle with scope. Bought it used.

I enjoy target shooting, and when I finally have time to use this wepon to do it, I'll have to sight the scope and all. Never owned a gun before. I also have no plans to ever go hunting.

Everything's illegal in Germany. Pretty soon the people will need to have permission to take a piss.

How unfair.
