I don't own any guns and don't want them. Not my thing. I've shot plenty and it's fun though. I believe it's important to learn how to use a gun safely in case you ever are in a situation where you are using one, for whatever reason.

When people ask "why would you need that gun" I agree there doesn't have to be a reason. I'm pro-gun rights because I really do believe people kill people. It would be easy to create many weapons many times more deadly than guns at home so what's the point? If someone wants to kill someone, they're going to kill someone by whatever means.

Murder wasn't created when high powered assault rifles were invented. It just became more fun!

Ahhh... Iacas has a CZ. I vote that one of the prettiest pistols ever made.

I like the looks of the .22 more, with the molded wood grip and the slab-side barrel, but yeah, the CZ's pretty nice. Feels like a tank, too (in a good way).

Yes, it's the indian, not the arrow, so to speak. I could also kill someone with a screwdriver, but a screwdriver is invented to screw, and un-scrwe things. A gun is invented to kill things.

I think there should have to be a reason for owning a gun, whether it's for sport, or target shooting, or whatever. But, imo, there is no need, whatsoever, to own an assult rifle, unless you're in the military or something of that ilk. Now, I'm quite sure the mods don't want this thread turned into a gun ownership debate thread. So I'll leave it at this. Public opinion toward gun owenership rights is, in my opinion, the single biggest difference between the American mentality and the (most of)European mentality. Neither side can fathom why the other side is pro/against gun ownership and neither side is ever going to change in the forseeable future. Gun ownership is too ingrained into the American sense of self right and to try and take it away from you would be result in, potentially, alot of bloodshead. And alot of Europeans just can't see how a criminal being able to freely buy a firearm can be a good thing.

This is a Alfermann Mohawk single barrel break open trap gun, weighs a little over 10lbs, and has a 34" fixed full choke barrel. To break it open, the trigger guard slides back to release, no safeties. Its hand made by the Alfermann twins in Washington Missouri and is #174 out of maybe #400 (hence my handle). I developed a flinch so I've got it setup for a release trigger. The heavy weight absorbs a lot of the recoil.



I used to shoot a lot of ATA Trap , before I got the golfing bug, and registered about 50,000 targets with this gun since 2001. I used it to place runnerup out of 4000 at the 2004 ATA Grand Handicap and won enough money to pay for it and a years worth of targets and ammo. Since then, ammo has sky rocketed so I don't shoot very much especially with golf providing much more of a challenge. I'm am still active at my sportsmen's club as Treasurer, and have kept all my guns and reloading equipment. Golf is significantly cheaper than this hobby.

I have another double barrel, hand built by the Lujtic family out of Washington state but its getting its triggers rebuilt.

I'm still under the 14 club limit...... ;)

hahah, that's good. Quite a collection you have, the other dudes in here too.

Never really got into guns. Shot a .22 rifle when I was a kid and really liked it. Just never looked into getting anything as an adult. I'd really like some kind of rifle that I could use for distance and accuracy shooting. I think it would be neat to be a sniper in the military. Too old for that now though.

That would be cool, but do you know how hard that would be to get into.

I have a Browning Citori over/under 12 gage shotgun, a Browning .22 long rifle, a Remmington 20 gage shotgun, a Sears & Roebuck 410 shotgun, a Colt .22 pistol and a Glock 19.

However, I do most of my shooting with a Canon EOS 1d Mark II N.

    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut. 
    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
