The muzzle holes/drillouts are meant to reduce recoil right?

I'm pretty sure you have to be 21 to buy a handgun in the States.

Yep, and the location on the top should help reduce muzzle rise when firing.

no guns needed here just some brute force.


Man, the only time Ive ever been shot out was out there. Last spring on a geology field trip. Had the professor not been a badass miner we could have been a few seats short on the ride home.

I picked up a Ruger P89 not too long ago. Everything I've read about it has been good besides the inherent looks of the gun. While I can understand the need of people having a gun for home protection, I won't do so until the gun is second nature to me. Too many people don't think about what is behind their target, even in the field.

yeah but you should be allowed to own one and keep it at your house, its the 2nd ammendment.

back when it was made, when the threat of someone breaking in or taking over your land was imminent.

the second ammendment is bullshit in today's society.

instead, I'd support profiling when it comes to selling weapons. I realize you get a background check, but if the person looks like they should not own a gun, it should be perfectly legal for the shop to tell them to eff-o.

guns are cool though, if your not a retard then little can go wrong, but its the fact that people think they are safe just because they have the safety on/locked up, etc. For gun death stats, most are just people trying to get what they want, very rarely is a child killed because they found daddy's gun.

that said, there are several reasons why I would rather live in the US:

near the top of my list is a Desert Eagle.

Thats not true.  When we became a country there were nice communities.  It wasnt as if it was anarchy everywhere and people were coming into each others houses and taking over.  Today we live in America, and like it or not, bad people have access to firearms.  So as I see it, I can either have one and be responsible with it or possibly suffer the consequences however unlikely.  I would never want to use it, Im not hoping someone will break into my house.  Its a last resort.  Unfortunately there are alot of stupid people who also buy guns which doesnt make me feel any safer without one.

true but they do make frangible rounds.  As long as the other guy doesnt have a gun or try to attack you, you can just point the thing at him and he will get the fuck out.  I just picked up a nice Baby Eagle in .45 a couple weeks ago.  Ive kinda been having buyer's remorse after seeing the selection of used Sig's at this new store I found.

a mid-long range, semi-auto snipe rifle would be awesome.

I totally agree about the frangible rounds. I bought hollow points for that reason, but I just prefer to practice safety on every step. I don't feel like having a round go loose and end up going through my apartment wall.  I also feel the buyer's remorse just for the money invested especially when the dealer had some many Smith and Wesson M&P's around. That gun in .40 or .45 would be really fun to shoot.

One thing I really like about firearms is they hold their value for the most part.  As long as it isn't some generic piece of junk you can sell it for about what you have in to it.  My long gun I bought a couple years ago is now selling for two to three hundred bucks more than what I payed.  

Too bad it costs an arm and a leg to shoot.  I hope to get into reloading soon.

Also, el ocho, I appreciate you stress safety.  Shooting is considered a sport but firearms shouldn't be treated like toys.  I try and go to the range as often as possible to hone my skills and get comfortable with my guns.  I suggest others do the same.
