Not much of a hunter though. Not a big outdoorsman and no desire to shoot anything living.
Nothing against it, mind you. Just jot my thing.

Why buy a Harley Davidson?
Why buy a Mustang Cobra, when a Toyota Tercel works just fine?
Why buy a 300 horsepower 25 foot boat when a jon boat will float just the same?
Why buy an iPhone when the old flip phone does the same job?
Honestly I purchased mine because my buddy accidentally ordered two "uppers" for his AR and asked if I could help him out as he didn't have the cash to cover both and couldn't send it back.
My friend uses mine to shoot coyote's to keep them from nabbing his cows when they are young. Sure he could use a .308, but it's more expensive to shoot, is not as accurate, and is heavier.
So basically "cause I'm and American dammit!"

The NRA is trying to push the blame onto mentally ill people. But even within the mentally ill community it's only the smallest % of people that ever use a firearm to commit a crime. Many of the people that commit the mass shootings are never diagnosed or treated either.
The only difference between an AR and a 30/30 is caliber and aesthetics. At the end of the day they both shoot bullets accurately at long distances. One is considered an assault rifle, the other a hunting weapon. They both can kill people in the wrong hands. I don't see a problem with a responsible party owning either of them.

so for that gun, do you need a permit for it or anything like that? Asking cuz I don't know and I'm curious.

Not to be political either, but it was wayyyyyy to easy for me to buy this gun.
Here is how I think they need to regulate guns:
I think that they shouldn't make guns illegal, they should just make it hard to get them. I.e. you must take a course and have a permit to be able to buy any gun, along with on the spot background checks. You should have to have a permit which you would need to renew every 5 years if you want to be a gun owner. If your gun permit expires, you must surrender your guns or sell them within 60 days or face fines/seizure/jail.
As a gun owner, I would have no problem paying $50 every 5 years to own a gun in order to promote public safety.
Also, I have a Concealed weapons permit. When I went through the application process in SC I had to:
take a 8 hour gun safety course, $75
goto a shooting range with the instructor and hit a certain % on a target,
Goto the police station and get finger prints, $25
Pay $50 to the state for an application fee.
When I moved to GA, the concealed weapons application process went like this:
Goto courthouse, pay $30 application
Goto police station and get finger printed, $50
....and that's it! No safety course or target practice....it was really too easy for me to get it.

problem with the federal registration is that it just makes it harder and more expensive for the average joe to have a firearm, it will never make it harder for criminals to get them...just my opinion.
anyway...enjoy...have fun and be safe with that thing

You cannot convince me why you need this weapon.
