Ruger sr9 for home defence at the moment but dropping heavy hints to wife for a rifle of some sorts for Christmas.
Never realized you could customize rifles so much, target practice and just learning the way of the firearm.

The OP would probably hate it here because of that. But then again, the killing of masses of innocent kids is not becoming an almost daily event here.

And I have to say to the OP, Given what has just happened in the US yesterday, don't you think that this post is in incredibly bad taste?



That's because your last windup toy in Dunblane got the job done.


Here's something for you, a windup toy in Oregon failed to draw a decent body count for the WORST possible reason (from the point of view of the people who drug up and equip the windup toy).

So, the job done, you are a disarmed subject,a and your country is the laboratory for western tyranny. Everything your government gets away with, we have politicians here trying to use as an example to foist on us. But I suppose, given the parallel social decay between our two states, you have more adult-sized children who will be happy as long as the pub is still open.

Right now, in the USA, we are getting ready to for another round of "give up your guns!" because of something somebody somewhere did. We are going to do what we did the last time when they tried that over Columbine: we are going to remind the state, and all those who support it, that we will resist peacefully to protect the lives of the poor bastards who will be sent to collect them, and if we have to, the people who sent the poor bastards will be next.


Civil war? Well, it IS time for a final battle between collectivism and liberty.

I've lived for a while in Newcastle, so I am aware of UK policy. UK government made a decision about its citizens, and I concur with that decision. British just don't have the daily hands-on experience with firearms that Americans generally get at an early age. Nor, as a whole, do they have a realistic image of firearms, their experience being limited to Hollywood movies, with the exception of members of law enforcement and active/retired military. But lets not derail the thread.

I'm trying to keep the discussion on the EVE community that also are members of the active shooting community, or members of the NRA. I realize that this disqualifies many Europeans from participating in a meaningful way, but there are many Americans out there with quite an arsenal at their disposal. I want to hear about them. Pics are a plus.

That said, I've been in the market for a shotgun lately. Don't have a great deal of experience with them short of grouse hunting with my dad when I was a kid. An old semi-auto 16 gauge.

When I was a teenager, a buddy of mine worked at Borders and he would have literally BOXES of old surplus CD music sample jewel cases.

So we'd take them to the range and throw them high up into the air. When you hit them, they'd explode and the paper inside would flutter to the ground. Hours of fun. Never bough a shotgun of my own, but I plan on rectifying that soon.





First, most of the well informed patriots don't like the NRA. The reason is, the NRA compromises way too much. Also, the NRA has a bit of a monopoly. Too many gun ranges require an NRA membership. Those that do not do that, get no help or defense from the NRA, and that is in spite of the fact that just about ALL gun clubs support the NRA in some way. The NRA also picks and chooses cases to defend. If the case is not mainstream enough, they ignore it.


I won't say what guns I have, though I don't have a lot. I know too many people with a lot of guns who don't know how to shoot them. I have a few guns, but I know how to use them. I have more in my possession that I keep for others. Some I might buy, but really, from a collectors view there is no such thing as "too many guns" but from my personal station in life, don't have a lot of space. Half of the total mass of "gun stuff" is reloading equipment for making my own ammo, much of which ends up being used to train other people.


I will say that none of my guns were involved in the Sandy Hook Shooting. None of them have attempted to escape from their secure lockers either. Though there is a Taurus that looks like it's plotting something, and it's not even mine.


Finally, if it's a shotgun you want, I must say this one appears rather epic. I normally don't get a hard-on for guns, but when I do, it's something like that. It looks like something out of HALO, but I would like to see if this is a jamomatic before I put 800 dollars on the counter. New approaches to gun design like that come with a host of issues.


I wan to remind those of you in the vassal states that real liberty is not needing your acceptance. Why do we have guns? Because we can, that's why. No excuses needed. If you don't like that, well I'm not sorry. A European state that has already been robbed, diminished by two wars, and now the domain of oligarchs might boast that they get by without guns, but you are for the most part like a poor man in the eyes of a mugger. Are your borders being left open for criminals to cross freely and raise the crime stats while illegal workers drive down wages? Ours are. Do you have a underclass targeted for destruction through mass media conditioning and used to boost the crime stats and turn cities into war zones? We do. Does your government run illegal narcotics while maintaining a prison-industrial complex? Ours does. The USDOJ even ran guns to Mexico to side with drug cartels and blame the resulting violence on the second amendment. Does your country have social engineers and Big Pharma screwing people up? Ours does.

So yeah a (house)broken Englishman can live in his little flat with his little job and nothing has really changed since the days of Charles Dickens, and he is happy with that. So what. Thomas Jefferson warned about that. (see reference in Paragraph 7)

America is the golden goose: the people still have a lot of wealth, and the collectivists trying to change that, first by fiat and then by force when that fails, are here. A robber does not go back to a house he already cleaned out (Europe). While the Unites States is going broke from endless unjust wars, the warfare state, and the welfare state, the people still have some wealth accumulated and a drive to restore it if given the chance. We don't want to be like Mexico where you are either very rich or very poor, or like most nations of Europe that appears to have 20-30 percent constant unemployment (worse for the young). Things can be better than that, we have the memories of our forbears still. We know who is against that, and we know what they are trying to do. Disarming us in one of their goals.

Rarely if ever go to actualy 'rifle ranges' - by which I mean indoor establishments that charge an entry fee, etc.
Most 'ranges' up here tend to just be a row of stands with a gravel backstop....or just a nearby gravel pit.

My introduction to the NRA was when I was in highschool - the NRA was quite active in our school's competitive shooting team, promoting good ownership habits and safety.

When I was in 9th grade, I remember the NRA volunteer/coach showing up and giving a stirring talk about the importance of the 2nd Amendment...as the massacre of Tiananmen square had just occurred and the images of Communist tanks and soldiers massacring unarmed Chinese students were quite fresh in our memory.

That was just one man, hardly representative of the entire organization, but I came away with a strong respect for them at an early age. To this end....they understand that working with young folk is critical.

Decades ago, I think NRA may have been more willing to make concessions - willing to throw 'some' gun owners under the bus to protect 'sportsmen' - but I believe in the 90's they eventually came around and understand that the leftists/socialists/activists they were making concessions to - were people who will simply not be happy until everyone is disarmed.

Increasing gun control was no longer viewed as an inevitable rising tide - but a force that could be beaten and discredited. And today, they are in full retreat, clinging to unreasonable bans in places like Chicago and Washington DC.

I have a hard time faulting them. Without them fighting the battles - today, I'd likely be considered a 'criminal' simply for exercising my 2nd Amendment rights.

Its funny - I learned how to reload when I was at University, partially out of curiosity, and partly because I was a broke-ass college student. Unless you could find cheap surplus, hunting quality 8mm rounds were about $1 each. Always bought the bullets though - was never so hardcore that I was melting down tire weights. Heck, not even sure if they make them out of lead anymore b/c green insanity.

Firearms were 'officially' not allowed in the dorms, but we discovered that hockey bags were just the right size for smuggling them in. Had a loading bench set up in my room, so others often used it and stored their black powder in my room. We always joked during fire drills that we'd know from the explosion when the fire reached our room.

The room survived though - except for a few discreet burns on the carpet where Jimbo decided it would be funny to smash centerfire primers with my roommates' prop sword.

I have never owned a gun, although I have shot many guns for qualifications and carried for duty. I am pro gun rights and pro gun education, not that I am going to derail this into a political thread, just giving a bit of a backstory on my conundrum of not being able to decide
a) which is the best gun for me
b) how to justify spending upwards of $1000 on a gun I will never have time to take out to the range

This has plagued me for over a decade, so I haven't gotten around to buying one

Talk about knee jerk response. I was talking about tact not politics. And "pot calling kettle black" ? I don't think you understand what that means.
This is like starting a thread about the great industrial benefits Zyklon-B has had on our society the days after we opened the concentration camps.

I am not an American so I am not to judge about your internal politics, but there is a place and a time for everything.
Op's intention in making this thread could only have been trolling of the most debased and revolting kind, a cry for attention which in hopeless disgust I decided to answer. I truly hope op feels gratified in making me feel like barfing on my monitor.
On an aside, the sadistic and psychopathic twist op must have in his brain to even consider doing this makes me wonder when he'll go out and spray a kindergarten himself.

Sorry about that whole non-American thing, but try to avoid personal attacks and strange fascist comparisons. The 'spray a kindergarden' thing was particularly unwelcome. That is, after your eventual forum ban.

Its pretty apparent you are not a gun owner, so your only purpose here is to stir people up. If the German government decided that its citizens were not collectively responsible enough to own firearms, I'll leave that up to the Germans to decide.

They, after all, are uniquely positioned to understand all the benefits that spring from a disarmed population and a heavily armed police state.

This thread, on the other hand, is simply here to learn about the types of people that make up the EVE community. That includes hunters, sportsmen and gun owners. Eve is a big game. We can't ALL be pasty-white basement dwellers and latte sipping urban metrosexuals.

To expand on this :

Discussion of weapons law, gun control and the civil right to bear firearms constitutes political discussion.

As such, there is no place for it on the EVE Online Forums. Future threads relating to these subjects will be locked and removed.
