..a Sig Sauer 40 caliber P250. Ive wanted a handgun for some time now, just got around to purchasing one, got factory reconditioned for $375. Picked it up last Thursday, been to the shooting range twice since...

The day I picked it up, I felt something the moment it became mine. It was almost the same feeling, but nowhere near the extent, as the day I became a father, like I was part of something bigger. I dont know how else to say it, but it is a good feeling. It is an even better feeling gettin comfortable shooting my pistol, which I am workin my way towards...

What do yous own? How long you been shooting? Anything I need to know?

I am already eyeballin my next, a Mossberg ZMB issue. Ive been sayin for years that the zombies are comin, and Mossberg has a few special editions for people like me. I know Im just payin for the sticker on the side, but it fits what I want for my 1st shotgun, pistol-grip & 18in barrell...

i'll combine two threads into one here in my response. the poster above me deserves to be perma-banned for comparing the feeling of gun ownership to the feeling to fatherhood.

Nice pistol, please don't buy that abomination that is that shotgun, unless you plan on breaching a sh#t load of doors. 870 or something with a stock atleast please.

PGO shotguns look cool but will put you at a tactical disadvantage. If you ever try to shoot magnum loads out of one it would break your wrist.

As far as I can recall, there are not many times when something happened & it changed me. There are even fewer recently. I had nothing else to compare it to, and like I said [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)] [/background][/font][/color]
[quote]It was almost the same feeling, but nowhere near the extent,[/quote] so I went with that. My son being born was hte same feeling, just on a much grander scale. But both events changed who I am, how I think & act. I dont know why Im defending my statement, everybody else I talk to knows what I am tryin to say, but I do appreciate the nitpicking....

I have been working Saturdays in a pawn shop, the people I work for own 8. Half of the stores have ranges, and them stores move some firearms. It was in my store, I saw in another store that the same model was $500 & up, so I grabbed this onw for a little less loot....

Absolutely, had looked at a 9mm, but I wanted a little more stopping power....

Thanks for the advice. Getting that shotty is more for humerous effect, just because Ive been sayin the zombie bit for a while. They made it for me, kind of thing.. Just me being stupid.. With a firearm...

Bring an 870 home later in the year. Its older so I want to recondition the stock, add an extension to the mag and shave the barrel down to 18.5.

We do, but it's behind the instruction manual for the car seat so it never gets found.

I don't own any guns. That's an automatic 5 years federal for me. I would own a few though, if that wasn't the case.

Not sure other than causing a self evaluation. I haven't taken my guns out of a locked case since '98. I have nothing against gun ownership. Some of these automatic weapons are a bit extreme. I just have no use for them any longer.

I've been wanting to get rid of them since my first son was born. I don't use them anymore. I have no interest in teaching my boys to use them. When they get older and friends come over, I don't want them finding a gun collection and then getting curious. Those kids that got killed by that psychopath were my boys age. I can't explain it, I just started thinking about getting the firearms out of my house when that massacre happened. It's a pretty irrational thought to have but I can't shake it.
