guns scare the shit out of me. i'm glad we aren't allowed carry them over here, even for self-defence.

theyre ok.  accurate enough for target shooting but definitely not home protection.

Well, it was free so thats all that matters.

I figured it'd be fun enough to drive off into the desert with, climb up a hill and just pop some rounds into the ongoing nothingness at.

Do you mean just plinking around?

If a gun is accurate enough for decent target shooting it is plenty for home/self defense.  For example the target I just posted is roughly 8" across, plenty accurate to keep it on an intruder's torso.

Even a small gun is better protection than no gun.

Has that got hollow points / dumdum bullets in? Weren't they banned before the first world war under the hague (?) convention?

War crimez!


It is quite funny how weapons can be banned, when the prime function of weapons are to kill people. Very very very ironic, and dumb.

yeah, the statement didnt follow.  I meant its accurate enough for plinking around but a .22 is not any good for home defense, not related to accuracy like that made it seem.

I agree.


but definitely fun to shoot and its dirt ass cheap.  Thats the major advantage of getting anything .22lr in my opinion.  You can go shooting all day for like 10 bucks.  Whereas taking out your .45 will cost you out the ass for all day shooting.

I've been bringing the .22 rifle out to shoot so I don't burn up a ton of 7.62.  The small gun definitely isn't as fun though.
