I have a few guns. They are always kept locked in a gun safe. The only time they leave the safe is to take them out to the gun range.
My wife and I took a couple out on Friday and put lots of hole in paper targets. We have agreed to team up in case of a zombie apocalypse because if she shoots for the head and I shoot for the body, there's no way we are getting our brains eaten.

I do own a PX4 Storm. It is a .40 S&W. It is the gun I carry on me especially camping in the northwest.

I shot all 3 , the 9mm , .40 S&W, and the .45 before buying mine.

The .40 was too snappy for me.

Don't feel so, my attempts at humor can sometimes be a bit oblique.

what you should do is get yourself a conceal carry permit because you never know when someone might try to attack you.
pro gun person for life
the right to defend yourself, don't let the senators take it away

My reply is a bit further down on the first page, but I just recently did my CWL class. Just need to send in the money.

I had shot a few crappy Glock's and had a XD 9mm that I disliked. I have a Beretta 92F and a Walther PPQ that are very smooth to fire.

*edit* In my defense... its a pretty sexy gun.

*edit 2* Shes got great trigger discipline



The differences the UK and USA really do fascinate me at times.

I can only assume we have insufficient freedom quotient to fully understand the appeal.

Isn't getting a suppressor for that MP5 a pain and expensive?
Also its semi-automatic right? I thought fully automatic firearms are illegal.
They aren't illegal, just extremely expensive which is why they are rarely if ever used in a crime. To get an actual assault rifle (a magazine fed rifle with selective fire), like an M16A4 for example. You would have to go through the ATF and pay a $200 tax stamp. It would take about 6 months for them to do a complete background check on you, then afterwards you can legally purchase an automatic rifle. Thing is, an M16 would cost you about $8,000 to $10,000 at a Class III dealer. If you have that kind of money to spend on one hunk of metal, you're lucky.

Nice piece OP, I bought one for my dad a few months ago and he likes it. Ended up giving it to my sister later on though cause she shot better with it than she did her Ruger LC9. He bought an old school Beretta M92fs for himself a few days later.



Actually to own an automatic is legal without licensing, as long is manufactured before 86' (Accordance with the 86' Ban.) At that point you just have to pay the $200 Tax stamp and put in the background check, plus cost of the weapon, and M16A1 or A2 model will be eight to ten grand. However, if you go through the process of getting a class three, or class two (FFL or Manufacturer) then is just cover letters (FFL) or manufacturing costs. With an approved cover letter M4A1s or M16A4s are around 1600 dollars. On a side note, even before fully automatic weapons were not really used in crime, in fact post 86' gun crime went up in the US.

Don't you have like CCTV watching you at all times and stuff? I dunno, feels like you traded in freedom for security...

That's okay, at some point when I'm rich and fanciful I'm getting a custom built pair of long-slide Beretta's to match Two-Hands herself from Black Lagoon.



So purdy!

Pretty much at least in towns, cities and major roads, It does a lot of good but it can feel intrusive at times. I guess deciding where you want to (as a society) put the balance of freedom and security is in itself a freedom. We've always been more collectivist than the USA, there are pros and cons.

Nah we have tonnes of freedom.

Australia followed a similar route to us we just don't see a need for firearms. CCTV is a joke though i think i read somewhere like around 20% of the ENTIRE worlds CCTV is in the UK and we have less than 1% of the worlds total population lol (petty crime is still high so hardly working)

I would say it's more that we don't fear our security, our police have a lot of respect in general. (Different in the US from what i see on the news, all these shootings make people worry) we don't have that kind of fear here.

That's certainly true there's allot of trust in our Police, Military and surveillance services.

True, I don't have the freedom to guess the type of pistol a teacher carries while in a school or the brand of the children's bullet-proof backpacks.
