Default The Gun Thread

I'm sure the majority of people on here are to young to own any type of gun, but to those of us who are old enough where are my fellow gun owners hiding? I figure if there is enough we could come here to discuss what we own, want to own and any reviews, updates and range reports. Oh, and of course pics of the guns we do own. So, I'll kick it off. I currently own...
2 pistols ( Charles Daly 1911 clone and a Taurus 24/7 9mm)
a Colt M4 with a 37mm launcher
a Hi Point 9mm Carbine
and a Mossberg 500 12 gauge shotgun.

I belong to two gun ranges as well. I have my concealed carry permit and I have been requested by several people to train them on how to handle and care for pistols.

I will be picking up a GSG-5 in a couple of weeks. A GSG-5 is a .22LR caliber clone of the HK MP5 SMG. I can't afford a true 9mm MP5 as they run into the high thousands.

I will post pictures if this thread takes off.

So what is everyone else carrying?

Nice start. When I was 21 I owned a Ruger .45 and a Winchester 1500 Defender. I ended up selling them both and just about a year ago I started buying again.

Well the 37mm is limited on what it can fire. It can fire smoke, flares, gas (LE only) and Breakers/Super Breakers. I just recently bought a case (10) of Super Breakers for the 4th of July.

Here are some pics of my guns...

I've never been a fan of guns. They just don't interest me. My Dad had a luger from WW2 in his nightstand for all the years I was growing up. I remember thinking it was really cool because it looked like the guns in the Indiana Jones movies.

I want a hand gun for the sole purpose of hiding it under my bed in case a burglar comes in one night.

Would you like me to shout "Hey its MWA!" when I get in, or can we have a code knock, like I'll knock three times on the door so that you know its me and don't shoot me.

I'm too immature to own a gun. I'd want to play with it and would probably end up killing myself.

That is a nice AR. Is the can real or a fake? Mine is a fake. I am considering getting a real suppressor, but they are expensive, not to mention the $200 stamp tax.

As for anyone thinking of purchasing, please think about it and if need be take training courses. I take my gun ownership very serious and safety is my main concern with these weapons. Whenever I take anyone out with me, if they have never fired a weapon we go over a lot of things.

I guess being in LE you can get class 3 weapons as well. I've been wanting to get one, but I can't afford them.

Personally, I don't see a point in wasting the money to get the stamp for a silencer. It really doesn't do anything at all; at least not anything worth the price of the stamp AND the can.

That's what I think too. I've seen suppressors for anywhere from $650 to well over $2000. I could buy 2 AR rifles and a pistol for $2000.
If I was wealthy though, I would definitely get a few and a bunch of Class 3 guns as well.

heh, yeah, if money weren't an issue, I'd probably get some silencers for the heck of it, too.

I plan on getting my class 3 license - they're really not expensive where i live, but I haven't figured out WHAT I want the license for yet. Some type of rifle, sure, but there are just soooo many!

To switch gears, I went to a new gunshop last fall, and they were selling one of THESE babies:

I can't believe they allow people to own some of this ****. The pistols/shoties I get, but assault rifles with launchers GTFO. I realize the majority of the people who own them wouldn't do anything bad with them, but it just seems crazy to me.

depending on the state you live in and no criminal record, you can practically own anything so long as you're cool with shelling out the time and money for permits, background checks, training, etc.

I own the following:

Glock 21
Beretta 92FS
Colt 1911
Mossberg tactical (man, with the double pistol grips....thing is fun as hell to shoot)
Steyr AUG (semi-auto)

I'd love to get my hands on an M4, as well as a smaller Sig to carry, since all my pistols are friggun huge,

I don't understand that mentality. If they can handle a regular gun, why not something upgraded?
