ive been duck hunting with some buddies, shot some ducks up, then ate them. duck is great, its like rich chicken. went deer hunting. i didn't shoot the deer i didn't have the opportunity, my buddy did. then gutted it. guts everywhere! oh man those things got lots of guts. quite the experience. then came the bbq, man that was sooo good.

but yeah guns are awesome. pistols are ok, assault rifles are ok, machine guns are great, grenade launchers are ok. if you are ever lucky enough to fire an RPG then do so cause then you know what zeus feels like.

but then you start to think that life is a 2 way range and its scary.

in conclusion guns are awesome.

The most powerful would be a .375 magnum, but that's overkilll. For funting, 7.62mm would be enough, or for a handgun, 10mm (.40S&W).

Most of those who have shot are male

I have shot .177 (Air Rifle), .22 (Smallbore Rifle) and a shotgun before. The last was really bad because the recoil was huge and I almost fell lawl. I've been shooting .177 Air Rifle for almost 6 years now. The rules and regulations for owning firearms in Singapore are very strict. For .22 caliber and shotguns, every bullet must be accounted for. If you've shot a bullet, you have to keep the bit of the bullet left after shooting, and if you have shot 20 shots, you must produce 20 of the little bits.

But the ownership of a gun is illegal except for the police, army, and shooting clubs.

are you talking about the most powerful firearm you have shot, or just in general? There are more powerful cartridges out there than the .375 magnum.

...man, wish i could shoot one. i only hear rumors of 9mm and .45 cal from my friends. they say that .45 mm seems to have a powerful recoil(in the phils. .45 seems to be common cuz civilians are not allowed to have high caliber guns. also they have to be licensed).

Pistols are overrated, long arms are where its at

but sadly civilians cannot own guns and it is only the rich can afford one... phils. is a poor country you know, if you want cheap you can have paltik(fakes), however it has a good tendency to backfire(due to poor quality). seriously, civilians cannot own rifles in our country, we are only limited to small arms... however air gun is a different story...

I personally think no firearms is better that way. While I enjoy shooting rifles, there are way to many retards in our society who take guns among other things for granted. I read a statistic somewhere that there were ~13,000 gunshot fatalities in the US, whereas Japan in the same year had maybe 40 or so. It's sad to see how the 2nd Amendment can be used to effectively allow people to infringe on others rights, mostly the right to life. Ironic.

I have shot with lots of different rifles, revolvers, pistols etc but no machine guns or automatic weapons sadly. But I have never killed anyone or anything with a gun, don't plan on doing so either. I do play paintball in my spare time sometimes with my friends, great sport if you ask me so damn fun to do

I first started handling guns when I was 7, my grandpa taught me and some of my cousins how to shoot a .22
Then we went on to carbines, I've fired an M1 Carbine, a Garand, an M14, and during fleet weeks on Fort Bragg, I've fired an M16, M4, and an old M60, under Army supervision of course, as for pistols, 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, .357 (once)

As of now I own a 40 S&W model P226 pistol, a 9mm carbine, an M14
and I plan to buy an AR15 off the net, or an AK47, whatever speaks to me

and up until I was promoted to Sergeant Major in ROTC
I was the commander and Junior Marksmanship instructor of my unit's
rifle/marksmanship team

I own a .22 Ruger which I never sold since it was my first. I own a Remington .270 which sounds and kicks like a bomb went off. I've killed some birds and gone to the shooting range. I haven't gotten a handgun since I don't know how I feel about owning one; it really isn't for hunting or accuracy. It's honestly for only for killing people unless someone thinks that opening a can of soup with one is useful. I've shot the m9 Beretta since it's the current issued sidearm but that's all.

I plan on hunting with a rifle, bow, and even with a knife one day. Tracking and hunting an animal in the right environment isn't bad in my opinion unless you just plan on killing it. I plan to eat it and use some of the remainders for other uses (ie. leather, etc). I actually think someone hunting and eating an animal in Africa is more respectful than buying meat from companies that breed and slaughter animals in cages.

And yes. Guns do give you a sense of machismo and can make guys do childish things. But if you get it for reasons that you believe are right and are mature about it, you start forgetting about the glamor of it and you get caught up in learning to focus and measure things while trying to improve. I think it's therapeutic to me when I go alone to a forest and practice my judgment on distance and calibration as well as my steadiness.
