This kind of goes with my Firearms thread. (http://forums.starfox-online.net/index.php?topic=6986.0), and I am just curious how many people actually do own them.

And let us not bring any politics into this, just the vote, and an explanation (providing it doesn't lead to being a political debate).

No, and will probably NEVER.

Reasons are:

1_ I am not a police officer

    (If I were one I would not care

    about shooting criminals).

2_ I do not like killing stuff, 'whatever'

    that is.

3_ Reason 1_ can overide the 2_, but that is

    like... Not going to happen.

The point of a gun isn't to kill unless you are the one to give it that point. My family has several guns, and I haven't been on a single hunting trip, and most likely never will, because I don't want to harm an animal unless it's survival (such as if a bear comes charging at me, then I will put several rounds into it's face, probably shotgun slugs).

We just go to the range for recreational shooting, and to know guns so we don't accidentally kill something/one.

You be trollin'  :trollface:

Not really.  I don't want to get political or anything like that - it's just, a lot of people really, really hate firearms.  They're like nuclear weapons, except they kill more people.  Guns are fictional tools in video games and movies - I don't like real-life firearms anywhere near me.

Keep in mind, though, that over 80% of all murders are done with knives, and that nearly anything can be used as a deadly weapon.

Not saying your belief is wrong anything, just making sure you see the whole picture.

That is ok, but here, when you go to a club

to do it they hand you a selection of 'their' firearms.

Recrational shooting is perfectly fine - In fact I think that

skeet shooting might be fun to try.

It is mainly a cultural difference I think. Not my intention

to get political, but in your country you own  the firearm you

use for recrational shooting, where in mine's the club/sport center

owns it.

Ok, so in your country, you own guns only if you hunt or on the police force, got it.

And was just saying that because of how many people seem to think a gun is evil in and of itself, when it is nothing more than metal and, with recent times, polymer. It won't do anything without someone making it.

And nice, one of my guns is a little Browning BL-22, first gun I ever fired.

That's not mine, by the way. Mine has a darker, better looking stock, and is the "Fancy" model, with engraved metal and wood. beautiful gun, and mine also has a scope on it that is zeroed well enough to hit a target smaller than a human head at 100 yards.

Also, might want to take any future discussions outside of the direct reason of this topic to the Firearms thread.

No, but I REALLY want to. The only thing that is good enough for me to use as a weapon is a drumstick and a wooden flute :lol: :lol: :lol:

No, it is a BL-22, Browning Lever-action 22. Depending on the type of BL-22, it can fire different types of .22, from short to magnum. Mine happens to fire .22 Long Rifle.

As weird as it may sound, yes.

That, or you are collector, or

former Military/Police Officer.

And phearps private security.

That is true.

Well I'm not allowed to own guns by law, I don't think I would want one either to be honest.

NO.  I hate firearms...

They would hate you right back if they could.  :P

...those people are idiots, IMO (except for you, Dermot, 'cause we're friends and all).  :wink:

^= WIN! :yes: Well said Vydrach!

Guns don't kill people!  People [with mustaches] kill people!  :lol:

That would be right, it's a cultural difference in my case.  I suppose there are some uses for guns, but they're......terrible.  They create death so easily and so suddenly, and so very violently.  They make me very uneasy.  I don't like having them around...

Nope, they scare me and they make loud noises... which also scare me... I could never pull a trigger on anything, I would feel so incredibly bad for injuring/killing it, and then my conscience would murder me for a weak, or a multitude of weaks.  So if I have no intention of shooting anything, why would I use em?

I shoot things, inanimate things. Shoot at paper targets, and clay pigeons. Also, the noise should always startle you, since you shouldn't be even thinking about it when you are squeezing the trigger.

Not personally. Guns are heavily restricted here, and I haven't had the need to get one myself anyway.

If I want to practice shooting, there's a rifle club not to far away which I can pop by.

Well giving my half redneck/hillbillyness  I'd probably go all trigger happy when I got my license to hunt  :oops:

Plan to own them, especially handguns (mostly Glock, Beretta, and maybe S & W) and semi-auto rifles (Ruger Mini-14 and a Springfield Armory M1A)
