Living in USA and having an Federal Firearm License i can buy any firearm and have shipped to my house within 3 days. Have shot or owned most of the widely used firearms at one point in my life.

Fireearms are too loose, too random. I'd rather have a non-ranged weapon to defend myself with, as one has more control over those.

It is more of a funny point on my side to notice things I own that are widely used in Anime.

I.e. I just was like "Look at that ACR" when they rolled out the Masada in Jormungand, since I really don't see many ACR's roaming around mostly just the random SCAR mixed in with people having AKs or ARs at the range normally. Or when I noticed Rentaro using an XD when I have my own XD-S and XD-M models. It was just funny to see stuff I owned being used randomly

So far there hasn't been any anime that has made me want to buy a certain firearm. However, there are some games, like Metal Gear Solid, has had me want some handguns. Metal Gear Solid makes me want to get a H&K Mark 23, and USP, but can't afford them at the moment. Metal Gear Solid 3, made me want a 1911, which I was able to purchase a RIA 1911, which is close enough.

Meh, H&K is just pain on prices for anything they offer.. I only had to drop 1,900$ for my Bushmaster ACR, couldn't think of dropping 2 grand for a handgun.. As for the USP, coworker had one of those and it was rather fun to fire, heavy and big still fun.

I own an HK45. Sort of an evolved USP 45: fantastic grip, incredible design, but holds two less .45 ACP bullets (hence why I said "sort of"). My choice to own a firearm extends from my military service.

I own three hand guns and a couple rifles. And no, cartoons did not influence my decision to buy any certain gun.

The hands guns were purchased based on their ability to protect me and my daughters, and the rifles were purchased ranked on their ability to decapitate deer and other rodents.

I am kind of afraid to own one, I live with a bunch of little kids and I live in a town with little to no crime. That being said, if I ever move to a city with high crime rate I will get a pistol permit and some sort of hand gun for personal protection.

Of course.

watching something like Jormungand or Black Lagoon, you can't help but love the gun pr0n.

I still have a massive affinity towards the KAC SR-25 used in HSOTD, or "Silent Assasin" from SAO: Bullet Arc, but I just don't have the $$ to drop.


Living in Arizona, I regularly get to enjoy the freedoms of 2A, and it does make me want a 338.

Yeah, I own. No, not because of anime. No, I didn't buy it. It's a hand-me-down and a gift.
