A while ago I posted a similar topic at NHQ. No offense to anyone that is on NHQ but Nerfhaven seems to have a higher density of older people. Anyway, I've owned firearms since I was 18. I`m not trying make a one man army or anything. I just find the engineering and mechanics of guns quite amazing. I`m curious as to what any on you might own or just have shot. I currently own 5 guns, 3 handguns and 2 rifles.
Bushmaster AR15 M4 Carbine .223 (pic here and here)
Ruger 77/22 Stainless .22
Walther P99 9mm
Colt Woodsman .22
Glock 36 .45

My most recent purchase was the Bushmaster. This is by far my favorite. A wonderful rifle to shoot....incredibly accurate. I have previously owned an AK47, which I reluctantly sold not long ago. Although it hit harder it was a beast to shoot. I recently competed in a small DCM style competion with my AR at my local rifle club. Out of 15 shooters I came in 3rd for 100 and 200 yards w/ iron sights. There as no prize as it was jsut a friendly competetion but I impressed myself considering most shooters were using 20" Bbl's.

So does anybody own any guns? I know CX has a Glock. What have any of you shot that maybe were your parents or a friends? It's always interseting to hear about other peoples experiences shooting various handguns and rifles

I currently do not own any guns, but I am a living enyclopedia! Ice can vouch for that. Anyway, my favorite gun currently is the MP5-K and the custom walther W2000 loser.

Well, I have a 1902 Winchester (predecessor to the Springfield 1903 rifle), but I can't find the bolt, so I've never fired it. I doubt I could even get ammunition for it anyways. If also shot a .22 pellet gun, but that probably doesn't count. My dad's shot a Glock 19 at a range once. Considering I'm in Canada, where the gun laws are more strict than a stereotypical Jewish grandmother with a frying pan, that's pretty good. I have to say my favourite gun is a Colt .45 though.

A little? I shot a 12 in 8th grade and it dislocated my shoulder. Then again, i'm a pussy eater

Im not really a gun expert but i have fired a 12 gaugem some rifle and a few pistols. The kickback never really hurt me for some reason.

The day i turn 18 i plan on getting an mp5 or an m16, im not really a gun freak i just think i need it for self protection.

For civilian concealed carry, the Glock 30™ is the answer you've been looking for. This compact version of the Glock 21™ boasts 10 rounds of .45 caliber stopping power. Buy the Glock 30™ today at your local Glock™ dealer.

I've also shot (but don't own) the Glock 21, a Beretta 9mm - I think it was the 92F, 12 and 10 gauge shotties, a desert eagle .44 mag, and a full auto MAC-10 (9x19).

I have a thing for pistols... Never fired a rifle unless you count my .177 pellet rifle.

I go hunting with my dad every once in a while, and so far I've shot a 12 gauge shottie, 20 gauge, an M1 garand, and I have held my friend's dad's AK 47. By far, the M1 was the coolest. I saw an ad in some magazine that was selling them for $500, and that's what I'm gonna get when I turn 18.

Shotguns don`t really do it for me. I guess since I don`t hunt. You can`t really just target shoot a shotgun and get much pleasure out of it. The only shotgun I've shot was a 10 gauge double barrel Remington. That'll kick the shit out of you. One of my friends has a Garand that I've shot. It's a haus of a rifle but very sweet. I think its sweet that they are currently manufacturing the M1A for possible duty. We need a large caliber sidearm and there is no reason to redesign what works perfectly fine. They are insanely expensive for some reason.

CX - I dunno know about you but I can`t figure out the difference between the Glock 36 and the Glock 30, besides the mag capacity and the release dates. it looks like we basically have the same handgun. The mag in the 36 is single stacked. I assume the mag in the 30 is stagger stacked to get 10 rounds in there.

I would highly recommend the AR15 for anyone looking for a all purpose rifle for plinking, target shooting or intimidation. It will do it all with grace. I`m not sure how practical an AR is for home defense. A good 45 will do the same job much easier in that case, but it would work. AR15's will cost more than AK's and other rifle but you you do get what you pay for. Plus you can look like this:

The difference is .14" in width and 6.87 oz fully loaded. As you guessed, the 30 is stagger stacked so the grip is a bit wider. Everything else is identical between the two. The pics on the Glock site are inaccurate. The pic on the 30 page is actually the 26. Here are the best pics I could find of my gun and your gun:

Nice AR15. I keep wanting to get the pistol version just cause it looks so damn cool.

I guess I belong to the pellet shooting group. I have always been into firearms but never really wanted to fire a real gun. Instead, I turn to airsoft. I currently have a TM MP5-K W/Fullauto Tracer and I love it (hopefully I will get a 50 rd clip for my glock today). But If I ever had the chance to fire a real gun, it would probably be a gun out of the MP5 series or a Desert eagle, which looks like a freaking canon when fired.

Hmmm lets see.... I have a 243 cal. for hunting. A 10/22, bull barrell, lamenated stock, 3 by 9 scope, and 2 factory mags. I'm tryin to get a star clip, cause my factory mags keep jammin up and not feeding right. Very annoying especialy when you are gopher hunting. ^_^

My Dad has an SKS with a flash suppressor, 30, 20,10,10, and 5 rnd mags. He had a scope on it but he took it off because the shells kept hitting the scope.

We haven't gotten a pistol yet just cause they aren't as accurate as a rifle, and they cost quite a bit, but they are fun to shoot.


Im not really a gun expert but i have fired a 12 gaugem some rifle and a few pistols. The kickback never really hurt me for some reason.

How are you planning on getting and MP5? I thought they were illegal, and I'm pretty sure that the AR15's are like they publics M16, because I'm thinkin the m16s are illegal to the public.
If I were you I'd just get a good pistol like a .45.


But I really wanna shoot a Glock, Deagle, or an AR, those guns just look so cool.

My arsenal (until 1996) consisted of mostly handguns.

First generation Smith & Wesson Model 645, made popular on "Miami Vice" after the Sonny Crockett character switched from the Bren Ten to the 645. Bought it new, ran several thousand rounds through it, from wadcutters to CCI "Blazer" 200gr. JHPs. Good gun.

Also had a bunch of various other small arms, from a Thompson Arms 9mm Colt Gov't model knock-off (not good at all), to a pair of Ruger MK II's, .22 cal in both 4" and a 6 7/8" barrels (tapered, not bull barrel). A couple of Jennings J-22 "Saturday night specials" in black teflon, an OLD Savage .410/ .22 over/under shotgun/rifle, and a Ruger 10/22 rifle.

Then we had our first baby. GUN SALE!

Actually, I just sold my 645 last year to a U.S. Customs agent who just happens to collect firearms. The rest of that collection is now history.

Boltsniper, have you shot the Desert Eagle yet, in any caliber? I recall discussing it with you sometime last year. It's pretty cool to shoot a round (I shot both .357 and .44 magnum versions) that would kick like a mule in a revolver, but in the DE would barely move, much like a .22, but with that massive shock wave and flame. Very, very nice.

Here on the island of Molokai, it's very rural, so hunting is an integral part of just about everyone's life, and with that, firearms are quite the reality around here. A friend of mine has his FFL, so he's been dogging me to buy some "products". I did purchase a Remington "Wingmaster" 870, 12 gauge, 28" barrel, but would like to put on some neat things (18" barrel, magazine extension, light mount) to make it more of a defense weapon than a bird shooter. Anything else...well, we'll have to see. Son is approaching shootin' age anyway.

Hey, cx, that Bushmaster .223 "pistol"...when I saw it, ^_^ . I wonder if there's a way to get a telescoping stock on that thing. I'm sure they tried everything to keep us consumers from doing that. But wow...and the price, too! I'm in trouble now <g>.

It would of worked a lot better if you used the right color. Like this. ATB is a pussy eater...if by pussy he means penis. ZING! Just kiddin'.

I've shot a .22 of some sort, and some guy's ruger pistol. I shot it too fast though, so he took it away. Damn firing range rules...

As for airsoft, I have a P90TR, its awesome and comfy. Plus, it looks badass to boot.

You know, I didn't really like the deagle in .44 mag. Maybe it's the weight, maybe it's the fit in my hand, but even with the low recoil, I just couldn't get that thing to be accurate.

You want the Bushmaster pistol... it calls to you... Piney, buy me... I'm soooo cool...

I come from a family that shoots. I personally own a couple of 22 rifles, but growing up I fired a lot of western style fire arms, mostly revolvers and lever action rifles cambered in 44-40. My dad's hobbie is western history, he and a friend of his have a small side manufacturing buisness that remanufactures Spencer rifles from the 1860's-70's. They are remakes for the first lever action cartidge rifels. Abe Lincon shot one on the White House lawn during the Civil War. The Rifles are loaded thru the stock and hold seven rounds, which is were the expression, load on Sunday and Shoot all week came from. I also have in infrequently used Spyder paintball gun, but nerf is my passion

That is a pistol, not a long range rifle. The DC loser was using a M 16 rifle with a scope and silencer I beleive.

The AR15 and M16 are essentially the same thing, this is just a 7.25" barrel version of the same gun. There are many variants of the M16/AR15, Bushmaster makes some of the most popular.

Right now, I only have a 30-30 bolt for deer hunting, a 20-Gauge pump shotgun, Lever action .22, and a Muzzleloading Pistol (I don't remember what caliber it is). When I get the money, I eventually want to get a Glock. Maybe after college, I might look into getting a license for automatics (and get an MP5 and a MAC 10), but it may be a while before I can get that.
