    2 people of my friends have M-16s with the add-on rocket launcher (I think it's called an M-245), I have one friend with an M-82A (for anyone that doesn't know, that's a HUGE sniper riffle that can hit a head from about 2 miles), I have a friend who drives a tank (the merkava), a friend who cashed and destroyed one (his dad was LOADED so he bought the army a new one, for $16.5 million, to get his some off of a HUGE jail sentance, another guy I know flies a Phantom 2000s with a lot of firepower. That's the short list that came to mind right now, but I could go on... anti-tank missiles, MLRS systems......

    Why you Guys from USA are so obsseced(sp?) whith guns????? are you planning a civil war or something??? Since guns were made to KILL PEOPLE, I try to stay away from them and from the people who loves ´em

    I don´t like guns in my neighborhood

    I think we shouldn´t allow threads about "how beautiful are my 1000 guns"...



    Edit by Jazzbo.

    No matter how much you disagree with someone, let's keep it civil. Try and avoid using all red as it seems like you're yelling, and that's something we don't allow here.
     
  11. mine are hunting rifles...m-16's w\ rocket launchers..my local ENCON officer would have a feild day writing me tickets and hauling me off to jail if I went into the woods with those..:D on the other hand,other hunters would probably stay away seeing a rocket launcher strapped to my back;)
     
  12. I don't understand why so many Americans have to own guns. For what, are you afraid of a civil war or is it just penis extension...
    History tells us that guns only cause pain, grief and misery so why own them ?

    Guns are made for protection, not to kill people. A gun has no mind of its own and is a tool, just like a hammer or a chainsaw. If somebody is murdered with a hammer and screwdriver, should hammers and screwdrivers be illegal?

    BTW - I do not own any guns.;)

    Caracas didn't grow up the way I did, and I can respect that.

    I grew up on a farm... family doesn't have alotta money. So... that said, we grow vegies in the garden and we raise animals to eat. Just the way it is. We just don't wanna pay someone else to do the same (plus chop 'em up and add a bunch of crap we DON'T want)
    Hunting is the bonus. We don't pay to raise the animals. They take care of themselves until harvested.
    WE TAKE ONLY WHAT WE NEED AND WASTE NONE OF IT.

    Now, I realize that this isn't a hunting thread, and I'm not looking to derail it, but....

    Due to the way I was raised, I enjoy and RESPECT guns. I do NOT respect people who cannot handle the responsibility involved in owning/handling them. These people are the ones who give the responsible owners a bad name... and unfortunately, we're becoming outnumbered.

    Ok, sorry about the rant.. I'm sure I'll get some heat for this, but I couldn't let the few of us who know the truth go unrepresented.

    Oh, at last count.. I believe my immediate family had 75(?) guns Locked up and/or hidden throughout the house. I own 8 of my own, my personal favorite being my Taurus .454 Casull... and yes, I hunt with it.
    Last note: We also reload 90% of all our ammo, with the exception of shotshells... they're too cheap to be worthwhile for us.

    Just think twice before accusing someone of being a killer by owning a gun. Likewise, think thrice before trusting that ANYONE (aquaintences included) truly respects the weapon he wields, until he's proven it by acting responsibly and endangering no one.

    Ok, flame away...

    and by the way, rifle marksmanship is a very legitamate discipline. a blood pool in mind? guns were made with the intent of killing people? come on...that's just ignorance...

    I don't mind some caps-lock for emphasis, but almost your whole post was caps-lock. We don't yell at people here, no matter how much we disagree with them. If you can't intelligently and maturely debate their opinion, then you can't debate it at all.
