I'm almost tempted to set up one of those shotgun tripwires like in New Vegas. Too bad I'd get in legal trouble for that. And hospital bills.

Would be an interesting doorbell. Twilight crazy

It's a shame trench coats look really conspicuous nowadays. Otherwise I could concealed carry a Mossberg or Remigton 700.

Yeah, but there are still some places in the world where it doesn't matter what you where. I know that some towns in the mountains still see them as commonplace (visited on town up in Montana where it seemed like every other person had one on).

Of course this also carries over to other things, such as people walking around with a six shooter on their thigh (still legal where I live every day except sunday, election day, and holidays), but most people don't do it anymore.
Doesn't mean I haven't seen someone walking around with a .45 on their hip occasionally, which I think is cool as hell. And on Halloween a lot of people in my apartment complex decided that if they carried their guns around nobody would think they were real. We were right XD

Yeah, Open Carry is legal and permit-free here in Ohio. I just wish people didn't flip their shit all the time when they saw a gun.

Society in general seems more about calling the police and relying on lawyers for your problems instead of personal responsibility, so it's unsurprising

They do. Why learn what the laws actually are where you live when you can just call the cops for every little thing instead?

Which is why I learned all of the gun laws for where I live, so that if some idiot does try to call the police, I'll just inform them I'm not doing anything illegal and I can continue about my day.

I'm pretty sure here in Ohio we can get away with one of our more interesting ideas: Dressing up as WW2 officers with the appropriate weaponry. We went to this ice cream shop in Old Milford as a group, and I, noticing how much space my group took up, joked we should all be carrying Nagants slung over our backs. We looked a little like a gang hehe

I stay current on gun laws as well and I've realized that despite their rapidly rising ubiquity (the number of permit holders has been on a steady increase for several years) some people seem to be getting less comfortable with guns. It's annoying, really. I would carry a gun to protect myself, not murder hippies, no matter how much the hippies preach to me that I'm a murderer for carrying a gun

To be fair, if nobody had guns then people couldn't kill people using them, because they wouldn't have them. (Derp.)

But... what's the fun in that? They make noise and make holes in things, and are capable defensive weapons. Perhaps fun and perhaps effective, but only in responsible (or, even, smarter than a brick) hands.

It's not illogical to assume that because you want to carry a gun you're willing to kill with it. Of course, a carrying license is supposed to be for self-defense, nothing more, but activists might ignore that part.

As for the willingness to kill someone? I don't feel like getting into the ethics of that matter, really, but I will say that if they're trying to kill you, then... don't try to kill them. Maiming is far more preferable, but, of course, not always practical... It's no small matter, using a gun on someone, as has been stated before.

Of you outlawed guns, then the only people who have guns would be criminals

Of course you're willing to use a gun if you carry.... In self-defense. If you lawfully carry, you, by definition, aren't looking to murder anyone. It's infantile to advocate guns because they're "cool" or "fun", though that may be part of the factor in buying one.

Y'see, the only reason I want a gun (or, at least, ammunition) is to be able to shoot targets, because it's fun. But, that's no reason to carry one around. That is infantile. If you're carrying one around, it's for defense and/or soldiering, not looking cool or having fun. If you have one, and don't carry it, it's either a hunting weapon or a range weapon.

The only gun-rights group I'm not a fan of is the GOA. They're the kinds of people who advocate that the mentally ill should be allowed to own guns.

One thing that irritates me to no end is the law that states you can only use 5-round magazines for hunting.

Least I think that's what it says. Part of my brain feels like it aint there right now.

So I was browsing through a new gun shop that's just opened up near me (Point Blank) and I saw this. It was $308, and I vaguely remember reading a few positive reviews on it a while back. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Continuing on from the OOC.


@Frost: Sir, rare? I've seen a Five Seven at almost every gun store I've been to in Colorado, and 5 at a gun show just 2 weeks ago. The ammo on the other hand...less easy to find and not cheap.
Underpowered? It fires a rifle round.
Also, you best not be knocking revolvers. They beat the hell out of almost every semi that fires the same round. And they're a hell of a lot more fun to shoot too.

Edit: Also, what is up with you people and your damn Italian guns? German, Belgian and American engineering are far superior.

Well, yes, because it's quite rare to find a semi-auto that fires a revolver round. However, 9 times out of 10, you put a .45 or a 9mm or two in someone, they ain't gettin' back up, especially not if you place your shots right. I think I'll disagree that reloading every six shots is more fun to shoot.

And yes, the Five-seveN fires rifle rounds. In the same way that a the 1911 or any Beretta does, since PDW's and SMG's apparently count as rifles

Actually, the Five Seven fires an ACTUAL rifle round: 5.56.
And anyone who says PDW's and SMG's are rifles needs to be sterilized for the good of the future.

And on that comment about a 9mm taking someone down in 1 or 2 shots, I respectfully disagree. It doesn't carry enough power to knock back anyone older than 12, and moves so fast it goes straight through. There's a reason a lot of military and police hate that round.
And yes, revolvers are more fun in my opinion. There's more to shooting than seeing how accurate you can be or how fast you can shoot without stopping. Revolvers take more strength and practice to use effectively, so it makes it more challenging and engaging than just pulling the trigger and laughing at non-existent recoil from a lot of new-age semis.

Personally, I'm accurate with a 9mm to the point where I can rapid-fire from a good 15 yards and expect to get a heart- or head-shot within the first three rounds, in part thanks to the "non-existent" recoil. That not being on moving targets, however, I'd be grateful for the 15-20 round capacity of a good 9mm as well.

The Five-seveN shoots 5.56*28, if memory serves. That's quite shortened from the intermediate-caliber 5.56*45.

You want to talk Belgian guns? How about



The FNP .45 Tactical. 15-round, .45 ACP. All ambidextrous controls. A very common mod you'll see is a small reflex sight that can be mounted right onto the slide while still keeping zero. The barrel is already threaded to accept a suppressor, compensator, or what-have-you

That would be good to have if I cared for any of those features. .45 I'm 'eh' on.
Ambidextrous controls are 'eh' as well. It's possible to get used to firing lefty with enough practice, I don't see a reason to spend extra for 'special' levers and shit to make it ambidextrous.

And for fun time, my rant about any sight that isn't centered on the top of any gun every made (not including lasers of course):

They are retarded.

Call me old fashioned, but I fail to see a purpose of holding the gun in an unnatural and uncomfortable position just because I have a special sight in a special place, instead of just looking down the normal sights.

Not that a pistol really needs sights anyways since 90% of using it is just point-and-shoot instead of 'waste time looking through the sights'.
