    The UK part of my faction always gives me shit for being a classic American gun enthusiast lol.

    Then my American friends give me shit for not owning firearms that are tacticool enough to shoot the tire of a moving car at 2000 yards. I have an AR but honestly figuring out what optics to put on it is overwhelming to the point that I almost never use it. Most days that I go out I find myself shooting .22 rifles or practicing with my carry.

    I primarily collect nowadays, honestly. There is not a damn thing I own that is cooler than my 1897 Italian Carcano with a carved stock (even if it also shoots about as well as you'd expect for something 125 years old)
    Thats pretty cool man, I just recently stuck a red dot on my sig365xl just to have a pistol with one but it primarily sits in my safe looking nice, I mostly shoot my edc which is all stock. The AR I have just has flip up sights and a red dot cant really go wrong there IMO.

    Ah, that's the thing about knives. You can attempt to outrun them. Less so with a bullet.

    And additionally the people being stabbed - they tend to hang out with people who carry knives.

    I carry a knife daily, I can run a firearm better than over 80% of the global population and I can dodge bullets if neccesary.

    While I consider using a shotgun hacking, I do not understand how anyone that has ever fired one could reasonably say they do not like them.

    I do not trust that guy.


    Also, the only person that would ever say there is no need for a weapon is someone that never waited for somebody else (cops) with one to show up while being attacked.

    New gun owner currently have 3 atm but wanting to see if anybody else here shares the same passion. Crazy to think but guns are addictive asf. Anybody else agree?
    Totally agree. They're a great investment as well and don't really depreciate in value.

    I just bought a small handgun for close quarters in my home. I'm really quite pleased with it. It's a standard arms Thunderstruck model. Double barrel .22 magnum rounds. Hollow point of course. Perfect for a woman with small hands, fits in my purse and under the pillow. Trigger is a hard pull but probably just as well lol.

    I think all serious gun collectors have at least one 1911. I dont have one myself, but wouldnt mind adding one to my collection one day.

    I don't care for .45

    I have small hands and the kick is too much for me.
    First handgun I ever fired was a .44 magnum and that was a disaster.

    British rifle enthusiast here. Never been one for private ownership (cba to do the paperwork, fees, shit like that), but been firing UK military weapons since I was 14

    Kinda sad the firearm scene isn't so big over here, but I understand the reasons, and kinda like the laws we have in place to prevent private ownership where there is no need for it

    I was an Army Cadet lol. 

    Was on a shooting team at 16 firing .22 rimfire from a modified Enfield, 5.56 from an SA80 and it's LSW counterpart (both live and blank), and 7.62 from a Parker Hale Target Rifle.
    (All NATO standards)

    Was fun, i miss the experience now I'm no longer a "youth". Was an amazing experience that I'd do again in a heartbeat

    I have been using firearms since I was about 6 years old. Used for hunting anyway. Granted it was also just a 4-10 when I was that age.
