I had a bunch of guns but they tuck them all away to keep me from sticking one in my mouth after the accident , I get to shot my 22 target gun from when I was on the rifle team in high school sometimes now tho, and my partner from work killed him self in May with his desard eagle 50 cal .

Sorry to hear about the tbi and your buddy. Losing someone's always hard man. Hang in there bud. Me and the rest of DooTalk's here for ya! :biggrin_old:

Sorry Doomaster for the crap rules you guys have.  Here in Chicago, we had a major uphill battle for carry for the longest time.  It took a federal judge to give us the OK for carry.  

It's fine, I guess it keeps us safe in a way. But can really be more of a pain most of the time. Glad to hear you guys aren't loosing your 2nd amendment laws!

I agree with that too! That's what I mean by "in a way". It would just scare me to think that some crazy guy might not like my new freeride, walk up behind me and "BANG" before I even knew he was carrying a gun.

 

But the incident that happened in Ottawa awhile ago could have been prevented by a good citizen with a pistol, as the attacker also had a perfectly legal rifle anyway and managed to kill a great soldier.

 

Where I live (East coast of Labrador) there is a great danger of being attacked. Not so much by our crazy neighbours but by wolves or bears. If I went to check our cabin on a sled, I would have to carry a gun illegally. I can guarantee I'm not heading 30km into wolf territory without my 5 round(10 round in seconds) semi-auto rifle on with me. I'd rather pay a 3000$ fine than get mauled to death...

 

But ya, you're right, on the hip would be a better place. Who thought that dootalk would be a place to vent about gun laws haha. Rant's over :buddies:

Exactly. Toughest gun laws in America, highest murder rate in America.

Go figure...

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level.

Yeah. In 2013 there were 12,253 murders total in the U.S. Out of those, 5782 were from handguns. 285 for rifles, 308 for shotguns,  Here is the funny thing. You know how people complain about rifles killing a lot? Well, according to the FBI, 686 murders were committed by personal weapons, such as feet, hands, head, etc. All this is according to the FBI. The rifle kills and shotgun kills combined don't even add up to the murders committed by feet, hands, head, etc. Funny huh. 

 

 

But, the crime rate has been going down since the 90's, so at least we are going in the right direction. 

 

Chicago has the most murders per year, in 2012 it was 503, but in 2013 it was 412, so that's a positive. For the most murders per capita, in 2012, Flint Michigan held the #1 spot, with Detroit trailing close at #2. 

 

Oh, and in 2013, there were 416 justifiable homicides by law enforcement. 

 

 

Just a little bit of information for you guys. Its interesting, I think. 

 

And its all according to the FBI and UCR(Uniform Crime Report)

I grew up shooting basically as soon as I was big enough to hold a gun. Then hunting as soon as I was of age. I've shot deer in PA, lots of birds in NJ, Deer in Quebec, Caribou in Quebec, Moose and Dall sheep in Alaska. I have quite a few guns, almost all of the hunting variety. Many of them were handed down through family, some bought new as I was growing up. My father had money and we did the big trips together in my teens and early 20s. Then he and I had a falling out and I haven't hunted since. Just bought a house and looking at a safe since I have about 25 long guns and a few pistols. I don't have any digital photos of my animals in the field because i didn't have a digital camera back then and haven't scanned any. I could take some pics of heads on the wall though.
