    1. 8 years old

    2. Cos it took me damn near a year of begging and extra chores to get range time with the Tommy gun and i wasn't gonna let a silly thing like total lack of experience get in the way.

    3. Yes.

    4. No.

    5. There are actually only a very few guns that don't have something interesting or unique about their design. Crap is still crap though. (Raven...Jennings..etc)

    6. Would it not be more important to decide whether you think you're a fag?

    7. Usually and yes.

    8. Not much. People naturally fear what they don't understand and as to the rest, stupid people are amusing.

    9. If i said "i've lost count", would that answer your question?

    10. Most popular military and police calibers.

    11. Keltec P3AT. Because a .380 that small is too good for me to do without.

    12. A computer for Halo and HL2. :big grin:

    13. Yes, but on at least two occasions, i've come home and realized i was wrong. See #9 :o

    i never really post here but i'll answer anyway

    1. ask my dad. i'd have to guess 7 or so when i got to shoot his guns
    2. my dad wanted to show me how.
    3. no but i've lurked there
    4. no
    5. i like them all from my CZ-52 to my yugo SKS
    6. i'll take your word that you aren't
    7. yes i do
    8. the way people blow things out of proportion (good and bad)
    9. about a dozen right now... i think
    10. .22 .223 7.62X39 .308 .38 .357 9X19 9X25 .380 20ga 12ga
    11. kel-tec P-3AT because i thought it would funciton properly
    12. i'm not sure. there are a lot on the list. probably either a Glock 22 or a 1911 style .45
    13. sure any excuse is a good excuse to buy another firearm. fortunately i just got a decent paying job so i can buy more.

    Age 4.

    Because my Dad asked me if I wanted to go shooting with him and I did.

    No.

    Never have, not averse to trying it someday, though a bit squeemish.

    I have preferences, but I'm not against any particular gun except the Intratec TEC-9/22 because they suck.

    Yes, but not because of this thread. (just kidding)

    Yes.

    The endless stream of brainwashed ignorance, popping up with the Brady Campaign PR page of dozen-times-refuted facts for arguments.

    2 at the moment.

    A Mini-14 (.223) and a Glock 21 (.45)

    A new Mini-14, because my house got robbed and my old one was stolen. It was recovered by the police, but never returned. But my insurance paid for it.

    Fortunately I had the Glock with me and they didn't get it.

    A medium caliber automatic (maybe a Ruger P89) for my wife. Because my .45 is too big for her hands and too heavy for her to shoot comfortably.

    And a Winchester Defender 1300.

    Sure, why not?

    1. When did you start shooting?

    BB guns at like maybe 6-7, centerfires at like 9-10

    2. Why?

    Because where I am from everybody hunts and guns just seemed interesting.

    3. Are you a member of http://www.1911forum.com/

    Nope

    4. Do you hunt?

    Yep

    5. Do you only like certain guns, or do you appreciate each gun for what it is?

    I would only buy certain guns, other dont' interest me as much but I don't dislike them, I am just not interested in them.

    6. Do you think I'm a fag?

    I don't have any opinion about you.

    7. Do you carry concealed or plan to?

    Sometimes, not so often anymore.

    8. What ticks you off the most when having to deal with the ignorant masses regarding guns?

    That they think that crime will go down if guns are banned.

    9. How many guns do you own?

    10 ish

    10. Of the guns you own, how many calibers do you have and what are they?

    22. LR, 264 win mag, 270 winchester, 30-06, 12 gauge, 50 cal black powder, 44 mag, 40 S&W, 380 auto.

    11. What was your most recent purchase, and why?

    Kel-Tec P-3AT, because it is small enough to fit in a pocket yet powerful enough for defense.

    12. What is your next planned purchase and why?

    Don't have anything planned at the time but I would really like to have a 25-06 ackley improved, or a new shotgun for trap or waterfowl.

    13. Do you agree that "because I don't have one" is a valid justification to buy a new gun(be it for caliber, brand, model....etc)?

    No I don't think it is, I think because you want it is a better justification. There are lots of guns I don't have and don't want.
