Tue Mar 28, 2006 12:49 pm

So just how many gun owners are here. As strange as it may sound I have a weapon for every operating computer I have.

S&W Model 4006 in .40 S&W
Remington Model 760 in .270 Winchester (pump rifle, somewhat unusual)
Some generic Crossman BB/Pellet gun
2" rifled barrel ultimate starch accelerator (potato gun, propane-powered)
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.

Only firearms, or do bows and swords count too?

Hand:
Browning .22
Browning 9mm
S&W custom 357mag
S&W custom 44mag

Long:
Ruger stainless Mannlicher .22
Custom Remington 700 .243
Custom Whitworrk Mark X 7mm Rem. Mag.
Custom Howa 1500 .338 Win. Mag

Shot:
Remington 870 pump .20 gauge
Browning Superposed (pre WWII Belgium) O/U .12 gauge

The custom rifles have hand made exhibition grade walnut (with rose woor tip and grip cap) left handed thumb hole stocks. There are part of a set of ten (all different calibers) that I built over the years. The others have gone to family members or really close friends.

At one point (before I married my first wife and started having children) I had over 30 firearms in my home. Notice assult rifles are missing from my list above. They were, sadly, the first to go. The only other guns I miss from my old collection are a Mauser Red-9 broom handle and a Safari Arms Match Master .45acp. Both were stolen during a break-in and never recovered.

Ah, this thread is right up my alley. :D

So far:

Image

From top to bottom:

Beretta CX4 Storm in 9mm
Ruger 10/22 with custom folding stock
Bushmaster Carbon 15 5.56x45mm
Mosin Nagant M44 from 1946 with folding bayonet 7.62x51mm

Those are just the guns that I personally own. My dad also has a decent little collection that includes a shotgun, a really nice hunting rifle, and some old military rifles (one dating back to the Civil War). I'm looking into getting some pistols (revolvers specifically), but unfortunately I'm not 21 yet (19 :(). Luckily the law doesn't prevent parents gifting a pistol to someone under 21. :wink:

Kimber .45 ACP Ultra Carry II stainless with night sights. Beautiful gun. Very well built with little slop and tight tolerances. I'm thinking of putting Laser Grips on it.

Also a Mossberg 12 gauge. Well, I guess that's really my girlfriend's. She also has a Kimber .45 Ultra Carry.

We both have Concealed Pistol Licenses.

I have a really sharp kitchen knife.

As long as I live in an apartment, I won't own a gun. Too many people around when noone is home and I just don't trust my neighbors. I think it's in my lease, too
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

My kitchen knifes are all very very dull. Makes it more painful for the guy I'm stabbing.

It was in my lease, back in my apartment days. That and NO washing of clothes after 8pm. I had a load of laundry thrown away because I started the washer at 7:45 and it was still running at 8:00.

I recently had my hands registered as lethal weapons. Doesn't really matter if you have a gun, my forearms can deflect the bullets.
No matter how bad the new homepage sucks or how bungled the new management is...

People can put stuff like that in leases? Sheesh. I own several of various types: a 30-30, a couple of shotguns (12 and 16 gauge) a Walther P1 pistol, a .22 and I think that's it.
No kids or anything, and my apartment is very unlikely to be broken into; I don't have much of value. My guns all added up probably cost less than a single Kimber. Unless someone knows how much old, out of print herpetological titles can be worth, and where to fence them, I have nothing worth stealing.

When I can afford it, I'll try to get licensed to own a shotgun so I can go clay shooting. There's no way I can own a rifle unless I join a SERIOUS shooting club, and probably even less likelihood of owning a handgun.

Although I do live in the UK's centre for gun crime. I could walk about a mile down the road and find someone who would sell me a pistol, I imagine.

Hey ecks, if you ever get hard up for some cash, let me know. I'm interested in your Beretta and/or the 5.56mm.

Once upon a time I had a stainless mini-14 with that folding stock. Ahh, the good old days.

LFK, if I ever decide to sell, you'll be at the top of the list. I'd have to be *really* hard up though, as I absolutely love those two pieces. :wink:

My dad just recently gave me a bayonet that his grandpa got in WWI when he was in Europe. Its got a German Iron Eagle looking thing, and the year 1911 on it. Its in great shape.

I also got a U.S. calvary saber from my dad that has been in the family longer than that. No one is sure where it came from.

Too many toys, not enough money (at least while maintaining some semblance of fiscal responsiblity).

When I see stuff like that I can't help but wonder how the people involved got together in the first place. Bad marriage stories scare the engaged.

As far as the thread is concerned, I have a pre-64 Winchester 94 .30-30 and a Model 1917 Enfield .30-06 that I keep at my parents' house, and a couple of shotguns that I essentially share with my dad.
