    At the shooting range yesterday.

    Shot a 1911 (.45), and a Glock 22(.40)
    :bowdown::bowdown:

    I can't wait to be 21 to join the gun crew now...Gotta wait until april.
    I think i want a 1911.

    It's pretty amazing how much harder shooting is in person compared to the movies, it makes you think, if someone was around 30-40 feet away from you with a gun pointed at you, would you run, stay still?
     
  2. It's addictive. The movies make shooting look easy, as you found out yesterday they're full of shit. Oh, and 30-40 feet away from someone, I'd run like hell.

    No joke.

    I'm new to shooting too, and I put about 40 rounds through a silohuette target a few days ago with my 9mm Glock. Although the guy would have been dead, the bullets didn't go where I wanted. :o

    While aiming for the heart, the guy got a ton of bullets in the neck. :rofl:

    You don't have to be 21 to be gun crew. I suggest getting a long gun to start with. Familiarize yourself with safe gun handling and other gun-related stuff. careful though, it's addicting buying guns.

    Buy a long gun (rifle or shotgun) in the meantime. You only need to be 18.
    And congrats :)
    Edit: Where in CA are you?

    don't know what the laws are in your state but in many you can buy at 18 yrs old. I thought pretty much every state allowed long guns at 18 but i could definately be wrong.

    can't go wrong with a nice mossberg 500 series or Rem 870 (neither will break the bank unless you deck it out with a bunch of accessories which you surely don't need to mess with in the beginning), do some trap shooting, some hunting, good times :)

    federal law states that unless it is a gift from a parent/guardian, you must be 21. I believe you can possess it but have to be with that adult when shooting. But I could be wrong

    Definatly pick up a shotgun. If you can find a local skeet range it is alot of fun and not too expensive. Also a rimfire like a 1022 is a good gun to have, they get you hours of fun and practice for much less money.

    holy smokes, i did not know that. I guess i didn't buy a gun from a licensed dealer until my mid 20's.

    always either received them from my dad (for hunting etc) and bought from private parties

    yeah I inherited quite a bit. my dad had his FFL most of when I was growing up. I have 2 younger brothers, so he always bought 3 of everything (pretty much only reason he had the FFL was to get discounts and shit). Youngest brother is gay (yes, like a full fledged faggot, poz the neghole gay), and the middle one doesn't give a shit about guns. :rofl:

    hello inheritance

    Yeah, I guess lucky. Don't have a lot of it yet, as he's not dead. I really want one of his old Lugers. fucking sick. I think one of them his dad brought back from WWII

    yeah my old man has 3 old carbines and a M1 from WWII along with my grandfathers 1911 (assortment of other shit but these are the ones i really really want to get my hands on), i'm in no hurry to inherit them as i don't want the fella to die, but damn it'll be nice to get my hands on em, hopefully a long way in the future (but he is almost 70 so probably won't be all that long,,,,damn that sounds bad, i really don't wish him to die just to be clear )
