    about the guy that just bought his XD, and some crazy stuff going down outside his appartment...

    i was kinda shocked by the replies that he got... so many people were "disgusted" that he would want to protect himself...?

    i would have thought that in a country where the criminals are likely to have a firearm, rather than not have - people would not react the way they did in his thread...?

    my question is - is this the way the majority react to finding out that you carry a firearm for protection...?

    :werd: I would NEVER pull a gun unless it was loaded. He was lucky someone didnt take it away from him and beat him with it.

    I think most of the people I work with think that you should always give in and try to make it as smooth as possible for the badguys so "no one gets hurt".

    It makes me sick really.

    I've had people act a little odd when I mention carrying or going to the range.. but nobody ever says anything adverse.

    I always go out of my way to be polite & easy-going though, so as to dispel the "gun-toting psycho" myth..

    here in aus i get very mixed reactions when i mention i own a shotgun, which is only for skeet and trap shooting, ive been sternly talked to a bunch of time because "a gun's only use is to kill people, u having a gun i just going to increase the risk of crime and murder" :rolleyes:

    I've never gotten any strange comments from people I know...

    I've gotten two strange questions from cashiers at Academy Sports though :o

    Both from fat, ugly girls...

    The other day one is like, "Can I ask you a question... Why do people here buy so much ammo?"

    and and the last time I was there I got asked, "Why do you need so much ammo? You must really hate your neighbors"

    It seems like around here, you're way more of an outcast for NOT having at least one gun. It should also be noted that extreme violent crimes are almost nonexistent here as well.

    I don't think the responses were that bad...standard retarded forum fare.

    Oddly enough most of my friends are cool with guns or would like to go shooting with me. We're all college educated, most of us went through the gifted programs in school, no hunter parents or anything. I don't talk about a carry permit, but from what I can tell most are at least accepting of them, and many of them would like to learn to shoot.

    My last trip to Wal-Marts I picked up 700 rnds. of 9mm, and the old guy at the door stopped my to check the reciept. He looked at it for a sec. then looks up at me and says, "are you somekind of terroist?", I said "no, just like to go shooting", he says "people?". :rofl: :rl:

    Lucky you, around here people are so fucking scared of guns that we have to basically hide the fact that we are starting a shooting team untill it is fully formed and aproved of by the administration.:squint:

    UC Merced. And yes, we have the unofficial nod of approval from on high, we are just finishing up the paper work for it.

    And even better, the PD is on board with us, and our advisor is actually an instructor for PDs :big grin:

    Oh, and because of this, he gets to play with the cool stuff. For instance, the friday after spring break, the club is going to a range about 20 minutes from here, and the officer is bringing a couple of 'toys', one of which is an Uzi :bowdown:
