Make mine a Barrett sniper rifle in .416 caliber, to reach out and touch anyone.

There are two kinds of people. Those who want guns and feel empowered with them. They get thrilled by the pop of the powder and excited sending a piece of metal flying through the air at high velocity. Sometimes to hit animals or just seeing if they can make that nugget go as straight as possible.


I'll never get the fascination with guns. I'm not against you having a gun. I just don't get the thrill. I mean why not the same excitement over a pool cue, a ping pong paddle, a skateboard? How much of it is the fact that it can kill?

I smell anti-gun horseshlt, but I will say that among other things, a pool cue, a ping pong paddle, a skateboard and a firearm never murdered anybody without psycho input.

I only feel the power the first few second when I hold a firearm, Then it is just business. The assignment, the targets. then who makes up the unit.

I am a civilian so it would be targets shooting in a group setting. But your situation is more each for themselves. In that situation I would stay low and look to acquire a shorter firearm to use in close quarters. While keeping quite.

They allow one to defend oneself and one's family.
(As has been said, "God made people, and Sam Colt made them equal.")
Also, they're fun. Also, they're good for hunting.

Like a pool cue or a wrench any firearm is a tool to me. There isn't a bill "oh I can feel the power" or other crap like that. A tang of regret at times or a brief second of knowing I helped achieved something with a firearm a long time ago.

I would say your better equipped using a ping pong paddle or a pool cue Mikeyy. Now if your good with it then as your about to play a game it should make you feel something, right?

Oh by the way I paid my rent using a pool cue many times when I was much younger..
Then I learned to budget and save a bit here and there.

Do you live on the front line? They sell door locks. :D An AR doesn't seem like a very good hunting weapon. But whatever makes yer boat float.
