    Think about that when you suggest they be taken away from others.

    Sad but true...the intent of this thread is really to have a laugh at all the misinformation out there...

    I never said I want to take them away from others in my post. That's an assumption on your part.

    I do wish there were fewer of them out there but our culture is what it is. They are't going away so strict punishments for using them in crime and reasonable rules for ownership and use are just good sense in my opinion. My step father had many guns and most of my friends have them, some several, but all of the above kept/keep them safe and unlikely to be used inappropriately or stolen so as to enter the illegal gun market.

    And even though I don't own one, I think they're absolutely fascinating. It's just that I'd rather spend the money on another guitar. But I really think they're... I'll say it... cool. The history, the lore, the tech, the craftsmanship, the amazing skill in their making and when they are used well.

    And I'm glad I've never had to direct one at another living creature so far.

    Effective on the range = Unstoppable during a shootout

    Bullets turn people into pulp

    Entirely non-metallic guns exist

    Guns fire when dropped

    Bullets make metallic things spark on contact

    Silencers make gunfire sound like a barely audible little "fwhip" (unless it's something like a .22 or 9mm with a wet supressor, those are pretty quiet).

    Machine guns can fire forever and turn one man into an everlasting murder machine

    Bullets make things explode

    Bulletproof vests just let you laugh off gunfire

    You can cock your firearm dramatically before you waste somebody after a gunfight and not drop a fresh round to the floor.

    12g Mossberg 500 in Marinekote, assortment of slugs and buck and birdshot. Get some flare rounds too.

    Ammo in a dry box w/ dessicant is the bigger issue.

    If you're the good guy in an action movie, all or most of your shots will connect with "bad guy" targets, while every one of their hundreds and hundreds of automatic-fire rounds will fail to hit anyone.

    Just about every gun related thing seen in a movie = myth.

    What??? You've never pumped a loaded shotgun every 3rd step, without ejecting anything?

    Yes, that's true. If you're a bad guy with a pump shotgun, you have to rack the slide before and after every shot. At least.

    The racking of the slide thing in movies drives me absolutely nuts. So does pulling back the hammer on a 1911.

    anything you can't do on a Les Paul is because you haven't practiced enough or you don't rock hard enough.

    Most of these have been covered here, but these articles are still a pretty funny read.
    Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.

    I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
