    Default Shooting Guns

    Anyone on here like shooting? I went to the range for the first time today and I loved it. What kinda guns does everyone like? Do you hunt? What kinda guns do you own? I am trying to learn a thing or 2.

    I’ve had guns of just about every kind since I was 15 when my Dad gave me my first 22 rifle.

    Over the years I have had many rifles and pistols.
    Just some that I can remember.

    22 cal Marlin tube feed, still have that one.
    30/30 model 1894,
    12 gauge pump 8 shot,
    12 gauge double barrel,
    12 gauge semi auto, still have that one,
    16 gauge bolt action,
    410/22 over under,
    45 cal Colt commander,
    380 auto, most useless pistol I ever owned,
    44 magnum Rugar Black Hawk, 9” barrel,
    Glock 17 9mm with night sights, still have 2 of those for personal protection,
    38 Special,
    243 bolt action Savage, still have,
    Muzzle loader, real antique from the Civil war, was a flint lock then rebuilt to cap, still have, still loaded from the civil war,
    Oh ya almost forgot, the old 303 British Enfield, would knock a tree down and just about did me the first time I fired it.

    That’s all I can remember.
    I used to do a lot more target shooting than I do now, some skeet.
    Now I just target shoot to keep in practice.

    I was 3 when I started shooting, we used to go out cutting wood for the winter in Idaho and we'd shoot a .22 and hit some pop cans. I sat in my dad's lap and shot and never had the gun to myself though. . Ahh, good times, I'm not letting my boy near a gun until he can settle down though. lol

    my dad was and still is opposed to owning guns or having them in the house. i am starting out now, better late then never. i am looking into buying a .22 bolt action to learn on, i might go bigger though

    I’ve always believed in gun control myself.

    Hitting my target with the first shot.

    Seriously I have 3 kids and as soon as they were old enough, 15, to be responsible enough to handle a gun they were taught to respect all weapons as if they were loaded, whether or not they knew it was loaded.

    But then Melanie and I were both brought up in homes with guns, and knew dam well if we ever touched them when dad wasn’t around or we weren’t on our way to the range or hunting.

    We would not be here right now.

    Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

    Respect every gun as if it was loaded, never point any gun in any direction that you would not want it fired.

    It can be a tool,
    Put meat on the table.
    Put a rabid animal down,
    Protect yourself and family,
    The last one may be even more important if the economy doesn’t get better.

    Hey does anybody remember the thread we had with the gun locker for our Burbs? I think that would be a good addition to this one for those that didn’t get to see it.
