    Default Who has guns?

    Just came back from the gun show today and I decided its time to see if anyone else here is into another popular hobby other than cars. Namely, Weapons.

    I have just started collecting weapons but here so far is what I've got. First off there is my nightstick. pretty straightforward, although a little bent...

    Next there is my Smith and Wesson knife, with a 5" double sided carbide blade, and a leg strap I just picked up for it.

    Then there is my Ruger P95 9mm s/a with 2 15rd magazines, and de-cocking safety. I wanted to get a S/W Sigma but I wound up getting the Ruger b/c it was a better deal at the time and still a very nice gun.

    I will be sending in for my FL CWP pretty soon. I don't plan to carry the Ruger, at least not very often, its a pretty heavy gun, but I still want to have the license for when I do carry. I'm planning on getting a smaller 5/6 shot S/W or Ruger to use as a CC, but I think the next gun I would like to get would be a shotgun, still not sure what though.





    Oh yeah, and

    I've got two Cav-15's ...one with a BCM 16" Mid-length upper, the other with an LMT 16" Carbine upper. I've also got a Glock 26, a Colt CR6724 (Accurized Rifle)

    Between the two ankle biters, there's a single shot 410, a Henry .22, and a Cricket .22

    A couple of old .22 rifles, one is a single shot Winchester my grandfather bought when he was about 10...have a Winchester shotgun and .30-30, as well as a Taurus .38spl, and lastly, but damn sure not least, a 1917 Enfield .303 British. Magnificient killing device. It's very likely killed more people in 3 wars (or more) than I'll ever imagine. To think, I own a perfect working condition rifle that's already 60 years older than me...kinda puts things in perspective.

    Dad has 5 .303s, one of which was one of the bunch that Savage was contracted out. Odd seeing a "Property of US" stamp on the side of an English rifle, lol.

    FWIW, I will refuse to call ANY firearm a weapon, unless it's a crime scene we're discussing. Firearm, pistol, rifle, knife, personal safety tool, hell, even gun sounds better to the unkowing, uninitiated, and the sheep who even think a bb gun is a terrorist plot..

    Anyway, as you can tell, I support the right to keep and arm bears...or something like that, lol

    got many and concealed permit.
    Got a long story for ya about knives though,, they arent allowed or can be observed as a consealed weapon even in the holster. Having said that, if the blade exceeds 3 1/2'' and it is in the holster,,,AND you have it simply on your belt, an officer could consider that a consealed weapon.

    AND>>>>>>>>>>> there is on law anywhere in this land that allows a knife to be used for protection legally and as a concealed weapon. The law********FORCES** you to use a gun as the laws are written.

    just go to your state police and ask for copies of the laws reguarding concealed weapons.

    Now,, the wierd part is this,,,,,,,,
    If you are stopped and in a car wearing your hunting gear, the knife on your belt no longer is a concealed weapon but rather it becomes a TOOL!!. Same goes for a Chef who has several knives in a case concealed in his car, where it is obvious or apparent to the officer that the said knives are now TOOLS.

    On the flip side, you cant carry a knife on an airplane and no tools shall exceed 7''. However, TSA allows knitting needles the max length of 11'' made of any material because they consider them as a hobby tool.
    So my gerber that i carry no longer has a blade because for some dumb ass reason, it being stowed with all my other tools , it is not a tool but a knife.

    My babble was long, sorry but I thought i would share with you the things you better learn right off the bat when having that stuff and how you have it as to not give someone a reason to add trumped up charges on top of any situation you may find yourself in.

    My fav gun , muy Wafinfabric m81 41cal rimfire and yes its old.

    Not into handguns (which I suppose will change if I follow through with the RCMP thing), but I've got a Remington model 700 .30-06 and an ancient 12 guage side-by-side. I'm hoping to get a bolt action .22 soon, because they are a hell of a lot of fun and dirt cheap to use for target practice (something like $3 for a box of 50 bullets).

    I have a .22 Jennings, a .22 rifle, a 20 gage shotgun, a flint lock, and when my father-in-law passes away, I will get back the black powder 45 I gave him for Christmas a few years ago that originally belonged to my dad.

    I am hoping to get a 30-30 before too long, and I would also like to pick up another handgun or two... not really picky but I do hope to get a 357 magnum to add to my collection.

    Along with my guns, we have what we call an arsenal, of no less than 15 swords and knives. Our whole family collects them.

    No firearms for me yet, That's Dads hobby.
    Though I do have random airsoft guns, pellet guns and display knives.

    I wouldn't mind having Dad's service weapon though... (Colt AR-15).
