    Sup Lagduf.

    Title says it all. Shoot the shit about guns you own or want to own. Or anything else that is related to gun ownership or the (legal) acquisition of a firearm.

    In advance to all Canadians/British/hippies: get fucked.

    Thanks.

    hahaha.

    Firearms I own:

    Ruger 10/22 - plastic/synthetic stock. Shoots .22LR (duh) - uhm, probably the cheapest thing in the world to shoot. Never had a problem with mine and there are about one bajillion mods out there for it.

    Lafever Nitro Special 12 gauge (side by side) shotgun. If i've done my research right this shotgun dates from prior to the 1930s. Got it from my dad, who in turn got it from his father in law. Pretty cool gun, but i'd like to get a semi-auto shotgun and retire this one.

    Firearms I want:

    A hangun (not a .22, but I wouldn't mind a target pistol)
    A semi automatic rifle that can accept "high capacity" magazines - .223 or .30 cal...probably will get something that would be legal in all 50 states (m14 anyone?)

    Not bad Galf, not bad.

    Has anyone ever heard of the Unica 6 Semi-auto revolver? It looks like something out of an anime.

    Fires from a 6 o'clock position, single or double action. Apparently the recoil is almost non-existent in em.

    No offense though....cops up here have been pissing me off lately. They keep hiring more and more of 'em in Ontario, and they keep tightening up on gun laws, but crime has been steadily going up regardless.

    Only thing they are good for is handing out $2500 dollar tickets for not surrendering a highway lane to an "emergency vehicle" while they are busy dinging someone else for 2500.

    Never heard of it - pretty fucking wild-looking though. Very interesting design cocept - I'm guessing that the recoil is mitigated by positioning the chamber closer to the gun's vertical center of gravity. Maybe this helps with the torque. Also, it looks heavy as fuck.

    All I know is that I'd shit my pants if someone ever pulled one of those on me.

    gun noob alert

    I know nothing about guns (other than you can have them and possibly kill people with them) and I live in California.

    Now, suppose I want to gun what do I gotta do and how long I gotta wait? Can I just go into a gun store, pick a Glock, and say, "I want this" and then proceed to fill out forms?

    It IS heavy as fuck apparently. Especially the 8'' 44 mag with compensator.

    Besides the position of the barrel, the whole thing is on a slide like a semi-auto to absorb most of the recoil.

    I can't find that animated gif of it's internal components but this video kinda shows how it works.

    Yeah, probably.

    There will be background check and a waiting period.

    I don't think you need a license to own a firearm in CA.

    I could be wrong.

    Anyway, the first thing you should do as a potential firearm owner is research the applicable laws for your state.

    That video ruled so hard for so many different reasons.

    That is a beautiful piece right there! If I had 1600+ to burn, I wouldn't bat an eye!

    You and me both. Except here in Canada it would cost me more than twice that to get my hands on one after all is said and done. So fucking envious of you guys down there. I'm saving up for one anyway.

    I think the second you are no longer part of a gun club you have to dispose of your gun up here. Gay assed country.

    After PLENTY of debate and mind changing over which .223 semi auto rifle is the most practical, of the best design, and best suits my taste, I can safely say I'd be set with this.

    I'm very happy to see a thread like this up
    It's good to know we have Firearm enthusiast on the boards.

    I don't own any guns yet mostly because my father and brother are gun crazy so I just go shooting with them but it's about time I got my own. I always wanted a M1A National Match rifle

    Well I made an awesome "trade" with my father a week ago. I traded him a .380ACP Bersa Thunder .380 compact/CC type pistol, that is a spin off of the Walter PPK and CZAK P64; for...



    the Taurus Tracker revolver. It's chambered for the .45ACP same as my M1911, but due to keeping it's medium sized frame in that particular caliber, it's only a 5 shot revolver versus a six shot standard. It uses full moon clips to hold the rimless .45ACP round in the chambers and ejects them all at once versus partially one by one from a speed loaded revolver. Personally I perefer "moon clips" to speed loaders anyhow. After lugging around my M1911 for the last 2 1/2 years as my main duty weapon in the Security Enforcement sector, I've decided to make the .45 Tracker my MDW. Only thing that sucks is that I have to find either a decent low ride / drop down type "duty holster" from like 25 years or so ago when police carried .357 Magnum revolvers, OR modify a cowboy style holster and wear the rig "gunfighter" style. I'm not to big on carrying ANY pistol up high on the hip the way police & security do these days, always opt for a tactical drop down or a low ride style personally... but in order to do this, you have to look, and look some more. It's strange, in the "Security" sector it's kind of an unwritten rule that you're not to be Tactical, in terms of carrying your duty weapon in the SERPA styled Spec Ops low ride thigh holsters, but one can carry a low ride duty holster or even go "Cowboy" if you have a revolver, and not much is said as long as it's all in the color Black.

    I was going to go with a 7 shot "Tracker" in the .357 Magnum caliber, but decided that for what I do for a living, where the duty weapon is more of a last resort PDW, if I can't handle the situation with 5 rounds, it probably isn't going to be done anyhow. I'm not out there responding to bank robberies and such anyhow. But I've got 20 extra rounds of ammo in my double speed loader pouch too, so you never know.

    What I'm interested in buying next however is the...





    RUGER SR9 in .9mm Luger (Parabellum)

    This 17 + 1 non firing pin pistol is the shiznits!

    Beyond that I only want one other rifle in the near future and that is the T26 M1 Garand "Tanker" (Paratrooper) model of the .30CAL M1 Battle Rifle. It's chopped down from it's usual link and with the Fulton Armory Tactical top end, a OCS and devoted Sniper scope could be put on it within seconds. After that I'd figure I have everything I could ever want. Thing that sucks is, the anti-2nd Amendment types are at it again. Now they're trying to make the manufacture and distribution of ammunition ILLEGAL! That if some new form of serial numbered ammo isn't registered with the federal goverment per gun owner, then you don't have ammo. Any ammo that you might have from the last 45 years or so would have to be destroyed!



    I don't forsee this happening anytime soon, but that's the route the anti-gun bleeding heart fuckwads are championing now. I swear they're going to MAKE legal gun owning citizens from all walks of life (former military, police, security, etc.) ultimately end up criminals, cause we ain't going to hand in shit. It's just another step that the socialist fuck in this nation are taking to ensuring we live in a total police state, and while I might represent some limited capcity of law enforcement, I'm definately not in favor of such a thing happening. It's like the dumb fucks out there can't learn from history or something.

    Oh well... glad to see we still have some men with common sense as well as balls in this thread though. Yay guns!

    Better hope you never have to transition to your weak side in a hurry.
    (Yes I know you can set it up for either hand)
    The Mateba is not the first semi-revolver, the Webley pre-dates it.
    Also the guy in that video had the DA/SA thing backward.
    I firmly believe the AR-15/M16 is the best fighting rifle available right now.
    Right behind that is the AKM...Tho I REALLY want a FAL right now.
    Merc, I'll trade you my AMD-63 (AKM clone) for that Tracker.
    Good luck finding a modern duty holster for that, You might be better off having one custom made.

    Dear god, I hope these are legal in Canada.

    I swear this hillbilly is part cyborg or something.

    EDIT: they probably are legal...I thought it was full auto or something.

    I'm moving out to the country here once my house is done, and for the people don't know much about the big island, there aren't many (any) cops outside of the major cities, and there are tons of robbers. So I'm looking to pick up some random 9mm for home defense. I'll probably cheap out and get a glock 17 or maybe a 34. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    if there are a lot of robberies, then you would probably want to consider that your handgun will get stolen.

    Regardless, the one gun I miss owning the most was the USP 45. Doesn't need to be cleaned religiously, consistent grouping, and enough stopping power to leave an exit wound in your robber large enough to toss your cat through.
    All creature will die and all the things will be broken.
