I've wanted to get a gun for a long while now, but it'll be a ways off before I'll have the disposable income to blow on such a hobby.

I'd love to get a real, original SVD (which would cost like... the GDP of a small country...) or an old SKS. I just have a thing for Russian guns in general - your Mosins and your SVT-40s and whatnot. Maybe an old Makarov.

My father has a whole cabinet of various rifles and shotguns, some of them pretty old too (.22 probably from late 40's or 50's, and a double barrel shotgun that's probably even older.)

I usually go hunting with the Remington 870 on Labour Day Weekend with him and my brother for ducks and geese, and sometimes during the winter for partridge. Other than that, I just shoot random things with one of the .22s we have when I bored at the cabin, and sometimes proper target shooting with a Remington 700 .30-06. Haven't been hunting for real big game like caribou in a while, and probably won't be able to for another few years since there's hardly any snow and I'm moving to a city in July. I'd really like to go out again sometime though.

I've also been making it a habit to go to the United States at least once a year since 2008 to shoot off some pistols and automatics (damn Canada gun restrictions ). So far I've been to one outdoor range and two indoor (one of which being the famous Gun Store in Las Vegas). I've shot the following:
- M16
- AK-47
- Browning M1919A4
- Uzi
- Sterling
- MP5
- MP40
- Krinkov
- M249 SAW
- M9 Pistol
- M1911 Pistol
- USP Compact .45

That's probably about it. I'm actually looking into buying a 9mm handgun next year, as I will be eighteen (the minimum age for a PAL in Canada) and able to buy a handgun if I register with a local Rod and Gun Club, along with the police. I figured I'd get a 9mm just because the cops told my father (a Federal Prosector) that they'd give him some of their surplus 9mm ammo if he wanted for his handgun, so I figure I might as well do the same. Any suggestions on a decent 9mm? The barrel has to be at least 4.1" to be in line with Canadian regulations.

I come from a very big 'gun' family. I joined my dad and his buddies out on the range and shot a gun for the first time when I was 8. Yeah, yeah some of you may say 'Oh no! That's far too young!' I beg to differ. A gun is a weapon, and yes, like any weapon they can be extremely dangerous. But gun's don't kill...people abusing guns do. Now that I ended that little rant, haha, I guess I'll start with the guns I have.

Savage 30.06 Rifle -Bolt Action-: Not a company that many wuld recognize, but it's a very nice gun. Unfortunatly my accuracy with it's probably gone to heck lately since i haven't shot it since I moved (over a year ago, haha). The scope I have on this is something else to. It actually adjusts for bullet trajectory based on how far the scope's sighted for as you adjust it. Thanks to this rifle I've learned that one shot is all you ever should need to bring a deer down. People that use semi-autos for hunting not only frusterate me...but scare the hell outta me. I literally duck fro cover the opening 10 minutes during hunting season, all those .22 rounds flying overhead...somebody could get hurt, lol.

Remington 20 Gauge Break-Action yeah...It's a single shot, yeah it's only a 20 gauge. But man is it fun to go trap shooting with. Lotta memories with that gun.
Have a good one,
Phoenix

I'm working on getting my F.I.D. card, just have to get an interview with an officer down at the police department. My dad should be getting his Class A as well, so i'm pumped! Probably shooting just for recreational purposes, I love shooting really releaves a lot of stress.

I wanna get Sig .45 (1911 would be ideal) but not sure because the ammo is pretty expensive. so i'll probably get a 9mm.
Shooting a .45 is just way too much fun though...

Although at a local gun shop they have .223 ar-15LR for like ~500 and i want it.

I recommend the CZ P-01, which is my personal pistol choice. Look into the requirements it had to meet to become the pistol for the Czech National Police. Higher than any other servic pistol in the world. Much higher requirements than what the US Army had do it's M9

Nice, weapons thread...thought I was just about the only one interested in that sort of thing...


Anyway-I have guns dating from 1929-2008.

Everything, Long rifles, Sidearms, Shotguns (personal Fav) and blackpowder.

Plus an assortment of fighting knives and throwing weapons, as well as a full sized crossbow.


Very proud to be able to competently handle any threat from 1-800 yards away.

Checkout the Taurus PT 92. It is a clone of a 92fs or M9. Shoots a 9mm and is made in the same factory that the 92fs' were made in and with the same specs. Only difference is the safety is on the grip not on the slide. I actually plan on getting one.

I own a really nice 870 that is over 30 years old that my dad gave me 5 years ago. I hunt for waterfowl and pheasents.

I used to own a remington 742 semi auto in .308 but sold it since I dont use it anymore.

I have shot a 30-30 leveraction from the 70's, a knock off ak47 (hated that thing), several pistols (including a .44 mag) a shitload of .22's and a 7mm rifle.

I think you may be a bit confused. The M9 has a decocker, not a safety.

Are there any differences between the 92fs and M9? I have handled the 92fs not the m9
#55
ive shot a few guns, mostly hunting rifles, a .308 savage sniper rifle, .22 pistols and rifles, .12 and .20 gauge shotguns. .38 and 357 revolvers, an m4 and ar15, and SKS

im currently trying to work on getting a shotgun for my birthday, i would love a remington 870 tactical but they arent made in lefty and its a bit long for me, i looked at a mossberg 930 the other day that was awesome and it has an ambi safety which is really nice. i have a few more years until i can get my pistol permit but im already planning ahead for that

i love the .45

i heard they stopped issuing the 1911 because GIs were shooting themselves too often because of the lack of a decocker (seems like an easy fix...) dunno if its true or not, i think they stopped issuing them in 85 and i wasnt born yet

i was a little bit older than that when i fired a shotty.

my grandparents had their wedding reception at a skeet range and they both shot skeet in their outfits

my grandpa was a NY state champion skeet shooter and both my grandma and him are EXCELLENT pistol and shotgun shots to this very day.

The US military stopped issuing 1911s (except for the marine corps)

In favor of the cheaper m9. Additionally to adopt a NATO standard round the 9mm. The deco ker thing may also be a reason but I never heard about that.

Also be very careful when shooting the m9 or beretta92. The have a tendency of kicking back the slide when firing my old unit in the army had a few that did that granted they were old and poorly maintained IMO there are better choices then the m9.
#73
Quote by ghostnineone
isnt the m9 single and double action?


I think all auto pistols can be started with a double action then go to single. I could be wrong about that though.

i dunno, i remember someone mentioning they disliked sig p229S and berettas because they have DA/SA. the 1911 is SAO i think and some pistols are DAO

I've never been a huge gun guy by any means up until the last year or so when my friends uncle took my buddy and I shooting at a private range, and my dad gave me his old Marlin .22 to save it from a lonely dusty death in the barn.

And now, my great-uncle recently passed away, leaving me with an ancient air rifle and a particularly nice Mannlicher-Schoenauer.
