Haha :D I want a cross bow next.. figured that would be decent for hiding out in tree's.. :p Gun's are great.. until you run out of ammo, and your facing a bunch of loud, lairy scot's holding swords.. then the guns dont seem so good. :)

At least with a sword.. you dont run out of ammo.. although, you could run out of arms... O__O'

p.s.. I aint ever really serious.

We are living in a post constitutional America where you have the executive branch with designs on totalitarian power.

I do believe they are holding this card and will play it after the 2014 election, damn the Constitution and the amendment. Hugo Chavobama here we come.

So for you guys who do carry. How the hell do you keep a gun on your person comfortably? I'm not a big guy (5'8" 155 lbs), and sometimes even my wallet is cumbersome to carry around.

I just got back from a gas station run where I threw on some loose shorts and a small t-shirt and some slip on shoes. Where the hell would I put a gun in all that?

it's about finding what works for you man
i believe you pay for what you get and the same holds true for ccw classes
i paid about 240 for my class - but the class included close quarters training, target shooting, they had the ones of the state's top lawyers come in an lecture us on ohio specifics - do's and don't, and they went through all the various types of concealed/non concealed holsters - they also had several types of fake guns and holsters on hand to try out
for me a nice .38 special in a pocket holster is great for light clothing and an under the shoulder holster is great for something like my glock when it's colder out and i'm wearing more clothing
several of my friends like the belt clip ones that go to the inside of the small of your back, but i think they are super uncomfortable

I carry my polymer Judge at times. My everyday carry gun is my Glock 29 with a 15 round magazine.
Of course, I am 6 foot 1 and 235lbs. My first carry gun was a P64, and it was very easy to carry. I guess I have gotten used to carrying bigger guns as time went by.

I am not trolling, I an genuinely interested - Why?

What is it about having things that are designed to kill shit makes them so fascinating? I have't quite worked out why I don't like it yet. And I am a hypocrite as I like clay pigeon shooting (and would probably not have an issue in shooting living things) but when you start keeping weapons that have been designed to kill people, efficiently - that is a different thing all together. Or is it? Am I just talking shit? How much of it is some power trip, how much is hunting, how much a real fear of some sort of need to rise up and defend your rights (I mean against an armed force rather than some crack head) and how much is personal protection?

If this is the wrong place, ignore me. But it really does interest me.


Shoot some and your opinion will change.

You do realize that your clay pigeon shooting firearm was designed to kill living items right?

I'll also add that I feel less safe living here then I did in the States.

I fit all my long guns in the trunk, including a 50" long Swedish Mauser.

I do still want to rig up my truck's old gun rack to the hardtop rear window. I need to do that sometime.

I got to shoot my 1911 this weekend. I always forget how perfect that gun is until I get to shoot it again.

If you don't have one, buy one. No modern poly-framed gun comes even close.

zoona wrote:Then they are not shovels... they are weapons.

Not really. Your average garden shovel isn't "designed" to kill, A military entrenching shovel is specifically designed to be used as a shovel, a makeshift saw, a makeshift hatchet, and a weapon. It is designed in a particular way so it can do all of those things, that doesn't make it weapon any more than an ax you would use to split wood is a "weapon".

The 'trenching shovel I packed for camping trips in boy scouts had a sharper edge to it than just about every ax in camp and was awesome for limbing trees.

The point of weapons is like a pair of shoes, each is designed to do certain kinds of things. Some are deigned specifically for target use. Some are designed specifically with personal protection in mind. Others can do a bit of both. Some are designed for extremely close range, others are designed for moderate range, and yet others for extreme long range. Some are designed to kill small game and varmints and hey have accompanying cartridges to do so (.220 Swift comes to mind, thought .223 is also popular). Others are build for extreme distances to knock down large game like bear or elk (7mm Remington UltraMag for example). Could you kill someone with any of them? Pretty much. But the purpose is usually dictated by design and function.

our current project, almost done meow.

Marty has a CZ75 that I carry meow since his work has enforced a stricter no carry policy (totally stupid). I bought him an 870 for Xmas and got it stolen :banghead: but meow we have another one.
I'd like to purchase one soon, his CZ and most 9mm's are hard for me to rack quickly, but it works when i want to go hiking or meow it's kind of just becoming a daily habit since winter allows roomier wardrobe choices.

I'm assuming you're in PA, just carry and store it with one in the chamber. No need to manipulate anything quickly except your draw.

My work has no stated policy on firearms. Actually, most places I have worked did not either. That is quite annoying, I'd honestly be tempted to go small on an easily concealable holster if I was concerned about my well being.

Upon further review, I don't see any prohibition regarding keeping one in the pipe in GA.


The XDs are nice, my buddy has a collection of them he liked them so much. In my opinion they are a little bulky to carry IWB, being double stacked. That's the main reason I bought my Walther, but a single stack limits magazine capacity (obviously).
