Re: I think you guys got to me.

Went to the liqour store today and couldn't resist the pull of the sporting goods shop across the street. It was between a Remington pump 12 ga. Ruger .45 or the Glock 23. Now the torture of waiting ten days to get it. I want to play with it now.

Another great site to visit.

Just make sure you drink that liquor before you 'play' with it, you'll have much more fun.

On offence buddy, but this a funny as hell post. You're in the likka sto' (pronounce it right damnit) and you decide to get a gat, hilarious. I'm glad you can't 'play with it' right now, with your mind on your boos, and your boos on your mind Snoop

Re: I think you guys got to me.

I'm on vacation this week so I can have a bud at lunchtime. Besides I could have got the gauge and played with it today and I wouldn't have had to pay the 25 bucks to take the lamest safety test in the world when I took it just six months ago.

Another great site to visit.

Re: I think you guys got to me.

You actually have to pay to take a written safety test comprised of multiple choice questions. I think a two year old could pass it. I wouldn't be so hurt by the govt. charging the fee to take the test if it was actually deterrent to an idiot getting a gun but it is just soooo easy it's ridiculous and an insult to my intelligence. But I'm so stoked now for my new $hit I don't care.

Everyone should own a 12-gauge shotgun. Go back and get the Remmington.

I couldn't agree more.

Assuming you bought the Glock for home defense, do yourself a favor and follow ER's advice.

Though not a firearms expert of any kind, I like to tell this story when talking to people about self defense.

Once upon a time I was a fairly avid paintballer. During a game of capture the flag, I walked around the corner of the large rock that was our flag station to find my face 3 feet from the face of an opponent. My gun was already shouldered and I fired. So did he. We both missed.

2 guys, 3 feet apart, broad daylight and we both missed. He reloaded faster and I found myself suddenly colorful...

Lest you doubt my marksmanship, a couple years ago I went shooting with a friend who is expert qualified in the Navy (rifle and pistol) and I could handily outshoot him with the rifle.

Anyways, moral of the story, it's pretty easy to miss in a stressful situation.

Re: I think you guys got to me.

I have the same model Glock and I like it a lot. I'm not as good with it as I am with other pistols having a shorter trigger-pull, but that just means I need to shoot more.

I'm a huge fan of shotguns, Chain. If I could own only one gun, it would be a shotgun. You can buy rifled barrels and hunt deer with slugs. You can hunt turkeys, dove, pheasant, etc. with a standard turkey barrel. And for home-defense, what could possibly be more effective at 3:00am than an 18' pump-gun with turkey-shot? It'll blow a hole in the turd but the shot will most likely stop short of going through your neighbor's door.

Re: I think you guys got to me.

10 days, huh?

Same day take home here in NH. SHop calls the State Police and does a background check over the phone. If it's good, you go home with a new 'toy' right then.

Same here - it usually takes 20-30 minutes

Re: I think you guys got to me.

Glad to hear you got a glock. That's my 2nd favorite gun...was shooting my glock 19 the other day and it was so much better than the SIg 226....that's a great gun. I have a cheap 12Ga. though for those special situations....have fun and be careful man.
