One in every room as well as one under your pillow, one behind the toilet, one in your car, one in your belt as you walk the street.

    Do you remember the days when you didn't have to worry about 'outgunning' somebody or having more rounds than that imaginary boogeyman you need to be able to shoot down before he shoots you?

    If not then ask me and I'll tell you all about having the 'right' to not live in fear in Canada.
    I have access to firearms in every room of my house. Literally. I live somewhere with a lower quantity of boogymen. That's common sense to do that if you can afford to. Canadians have some weapons I cannot have and I am actually jealous of that. They shoot beautiful M14 Norinco's and M1 Garand Norinco's at a quarter of the price of my Springfield Armory Super Match and National Match rifles; and for some reason Uncle Sam refuses to let us do business with Norinco. Here are my Scout and Super Match. I could own 10 Norinco's for the same price. ;-(

    Go buy yourself a $3 special off the street and you will have a weapon that's more suitable for protecting yourself than a target rifle. One for every room, one for under your pillow, one for your nose even if you think you will be safer.

    And of course you have all those guns loaded and not in a locked safe? I hope you don't have children or have other people's children in your house. If you do then I feel that I should be reporting you to the proper authorities before there's an accident that is going to be attitude adjusting.

We focus on search and rescue operations, and on high flight missions assisting homeland security with drug interdiction (drug dealers try and fly in with no flight plan and under 1K AGL). I have lots of weapons. As I said typically around 200. 100 of them are not for sale and are my personal permanent collection. I am very pro gun and feel every American should at least consider their obligation towards their own personal protection. I do however feel it's reasonable for the Senate and Supreme Court to weigh in on what is reasonable firepower for homeowners. At any rate - I have to take a buddy over to the VA. If you think I am off with my view of things you can say so and I will respond later. I suspect we just got off on the wrong foot and have a lot of the same views on weapons ownership.
    Not an insurrection just a sweep to take guns, and lives if they encountered resistance.
    And I have known a Colonel that did run training for that type of scenario. Most of the training was out of Patrick AFB and done in Germany. He gave me alot of insight about a few things when it comes to marital law and our circumventing of the constitution. Even he was afraid of it.
    And who is to say what is "reasonalble"? I know people that proclaim to be pro gun that are fine with us owning nothing more than a double barrell shotty and no hand guns at all.
    I personally am fine with everything within the realm of hand guns and rifles and some restrictions on full auto. Mostly that they are stored in such a manner to not fall in the wrong hands.
    Seriously, how many crimes are commited with ARs, AKs, M4s and such? Very very few. But they get the headlines when it happens.

    How about the other thread about some serious power outage. You may be the only one in your neighborhood that is armed and you may have to defend against more than one crack head looking to steal your TV.
    You may have to defend against other well armed people with ill intent. You never KNOW.

I own a personal range at both of my homes and shoot at least every other day (I have a 300 acre farm in NY and a 66 acre farm in GA). My 25 meter 3 round groupings are tightest with my Kimber 1911, followed by my XD in 357 SIG. My worst groupings are probably my CZ52 or P38; and I cannot imagine those being my go-to life saving weapon in WW 2.

    If you like guns chances are that NY farm is going to be used maybe only for shotgun hunting deer. 1911's tend to be more accurate for sure. I have two RRA limited match (try finding those now) 1911s' and those are my most accurate pistols other than a pair of SW 41 target rim fires

    your silly lies get tiring. I have consistently said that since I have NO IDEA what at the next criminal attack may bring I don't want to be limited to 7 rounds.

    why does someone who is obviously terrified by guns and hates gun owners pretend to be in a position to lecture someone who obviously has a far greater understanding of gun issues than he does.

    Where do you live? Power outages have never led to any serious trouble in my life.

    But ok, say it did. His many will walk into one bullet let alone seven.
