I've been a police officer for 5 years and have a couple......

I carry a Glock 27 off duty, Sig P229 .40 cal on Duty (have another Sig229 for Tactial Ops but with Streamlight light and pressure red dot attached). Also have a Remmington 870 Police Magnum shotty (love it for all hunting and clay targets), Rock River Arms AR-15 (wife got pissed about that one, expensive), and a Steyr M9 (older Austrian Army handgun, with weird trapazoid sights).

You never know these days....but you better know how to operate your weapon safely if you have one. Good topic.

acj990- Do you find the Sig 229 to be a bit bulky for on duty carry? I love the platform but if I had to carry a weapon all day it seems as if it would be a little intrusive because of its weight. What do you think?

Fat Slice- P228 is my fav 9mm next to the Hi Power. Great gun!

Glock 17

Holy crap, 21/30 people who voted own a gun? That's crazy. I'm one of the three people who voted "nope." Guns scare me for obvious reasons, but I definitely understand that it's always better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Anyways, I guess it's good to know that if we ever get attacked, I got a bunch of you guys to hide behind when the shit goes down!

Never have and probably never will. I'm happy we have a much more strict gun policy than in fi. USA. The more guns in the homes, the more they are used.

No need to be scared. Practice and familiarization go a long way towards being comfortable. They scare my wife enough that she won't mess with them if I'm not around, but she loves to shoot. She just doesn't have enough practice to be comfortable yet.

The more guns in the homes, the more they are used.

How do you figure? I've put thousands of rounds downrange, and none of them have ever been aimed at anyone.

Only criminals are going to shoot anyone, and those people don't care what the laws are.

Easier access for the criminals and easier for civillians to use them. I'm not saying you are aiming it at someone, but many are over trivial matters.

Gun control measures are misaimed IMHO. Making it harder to LEGALLY own / carry a gun really creates a larger pool of unarmed citizens for criminals to pick from. Criminals get guns through illegal means. They are not registered.

If I was going to use a gun to commit a crime, I am not headed to a gun store to fill out the paperwork.....

Interesting thread in some ways. I hate guns and hope I'm never comfortable in their presence. Some of you (admittedly sensible-sounding) guys have access to a veritable arsenal...

Crims have knives, you get guns, they get better guns, you get hand grenades, they get shoulder-launch rockets, you get a minigun.....

Seems to me it would be better not to have these arsenals available to the public (some of whom couldn't sit the right way on a toilet seat if their lives depended on it) and yet they can get their hands on all sorts of excessive firepower. Too late for that though I think.

Just out of interest, how many firearms offenses in the U.S. are down to legal weapons as opposed to illegal ones?

On a +ve(?) note, woe-betide anyone who ever invades the U.S.A.!

The problem with that thinking is that outlaws don't follow the laws. Ban guns and only the outlaws will have 'em.

Just about every criminologist I've ever studied argues for more guns. Areas with more guns have less violent crime. In fact, the more criminologists I read, the more apparent it is that the "gun crime" problem is actually an economic (poverty) problem. Here's a stat: remove minority-on-minority (black on black, mostly) gun crimes and the U.S. gun crime rates drop to the same levels or lower than several other countries (including the U.K.). You're in the UK. They recently banned guns and violent crime rose. Criminals like nothing more than knowing that the people in the house they're invading don't have any guns. To answer the original question - and guys, stick to topic, which isn't "are guns good or bad" - yes, I have two. One's a target .22 pistol. The other is a 9mm I keep bedside (locked, but accessible to me in a hurry).

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
