What kind(s)? Any favorites? Do you own weapons - do you carry?

Any particular reason you're asking? Glock 17 and AR-15 are go to's. Carry sometimes. Trap and skeet is a good time, I don't consider that "real shooting"

I was just wondering. I never fired a weapon until the military.Β 

I largely grew up in the south where many people went hunting, but I never went.Β

Since my file got reset, I haven't unlocked the P-90, so I'm stuck noob tubing the grenade launcher

The single set trigger is adjustable and from my understanding you can get it from a few ounces up to about 2lbs. I have not adjusted mine from factory, but just the slightest pull back and it breaks like glass.Β 

Very enjoyable rifle to shoot. The ergonomics, size profile, and clean iron sights just make it a great overall package. The 'mini Mauser' bolt is also a nice feature.Β

Conceal carry if I could: SIG P365

My favorite to look at: SIG P210 Supertarget

Most fun to shoot: Chiappa Rhino 60D

Craziest/most ridiculous: Magnum Research .50 Cal Desert Eagle

Have shot many more weapons, but these are some handguns I really enjoy/enjoyed.Β

Fired a ton of different ones, each gun is like another woman in it feel, fit, and finish. You can never have enough. The AR platform is honestly my favorite just because of the versatility, particularly AR10s like the LMT DMR in 308. Love to take them out to the 700+ yards. Haven't tried anything past 1000 yard yet and waiting to get some dedicated long range gear before I make the trek to a range that can offer it. In terms of softest shooters I've tried HK/B&T 9mm PCCs. Quietest would be either 300 BO subs through a Sig Rattler or 7.62x39 subs through a gen 2 Galili w/ KNS piston, suppress either one and the sound of the action is the loudest part of the gun (you won't need ear protection). Favorite carry gun is a CZ 75D, love decocker giving the double action feel and extra weight vs the lighter G43s of the world.

Have and shoot a little bit of everything. Carry every day, mostly pistols chambered in 9mm or .380. Shoot lots of rifles and 12-bore shotguns for both fun and sport/hunting. Spend a lot of time with the common calibers (.223/5.56x45, .270, .308/7.62 NATO, .30-06, .300 Win Mag) because the ammo is relatively cheap, though I do enjoy shooting some of the large bore stuff: .375 H&H, .416 Rigby, .458 Win Mag. Dream is to one day buy a dangerous game "stopping" double rifle in one of the Nitro Express rounds (.500NE, .577NE, .600NE), though I won't have a ton of practical use for it unless I moved to Zimbabwe and became a professional hunter, haha. Still, there's nothing quite like an afternoon firing off some big bore bone-rattlers.

Also:Β This topic glows in the dark.

This postΒ reallyΒ glows in the dark.

I live in rural America in a constitutional carry state. Concealed carrying is very common around where I live, so it's not seen as a big deal. I probably carry for the same reason most everyone else does: in case it's ever needed to defend my life or the lives of my family. The hope is that it's never needed and I'm never in a situation where it needs to be drawn. It's carried for the small chance that I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I visited my cousins in Texas when I was 8 and fired an AR15, a Glock 17 and a G36. Just your usual Texas things. Then I bought a pair of crocs and went to Chucky cheese and Walmart for the first time.

At 16 I went to Florida and fired an AK-47, a Glock again and then a revolver of some sort. That's my entire experience with guns.

I've used a rifle a few times though never a handgun. I really want to try it though.Β 

Oct 30, 2021 - 11:31pm

I never wanted one but curious to learn more about them.

I've been shooting since I was little. Competed in biathlon races for a while, so got pretty good at the small .22 rifles. Went hunting a bunch with grandparents, finished off a bear once with a .44 colt, that was fun. Set the record at my summer camp with a 149/150 skeet shooting, still pretty proud of that even a decade+ later. Got an NRA pistol proficiency or whatever at 16.

Then I enlisted in the army. So it's been pretty much M4 platform since then. Though I did get qual'ed in pistol a few weeks ago for a competition.

Oct 31, 2021 - 11:13am

Not from the US, but most of the ones I've tried or used have been through military service and shooting clubs.Β 

HK 416
HK 417Β 
FN MinimiΒ 
Barrett M82

Other than those, a bunch of pistols and bolt-on rifles.Β 

Nov 1, 2021 - 11:33am

HK 416/417 are great. Did you serve in the army/marines in Europe? I remember we used a modded version of the HK416.Β 

I don't know... Yeah. Almost definitely yes.

I have owned and shot several. I have a hunting license but have never really done much with it. I have also had a CCW in the past and would carry daily.

Each year it gets harder & harder to find land to go shooting on (Thanks Obama!) so that's a downer. As it is, I mostly just have things around the house for home protection. From memory - Glock .40 cal (Glock 23?), Glock 9mm single stack (Glock 43?), a Beretta M9 (not a 92FS, but the actual M9 they released to the public) and a bunch of AR parts that I need to assemble (that's always a ton of fun, I really should do that more). Recently sold my Mossberg 30-06 because that was just a little "too much" for my interests. I'm sure I also have some 22s lying around somewhere, I only use those when I go rabbit hunting (invasive species out here).Β 

One of my best memories in life is when my best friend and I took a bunch of guns out to BLM land where you can shoot. We brought shade, seating, a cooler full of food and drinks and we just spent the whole day shooting out there. We shot all kinds of targets and took videos of each other like we were some masters shooters or something! My friend has a terminal disease so it was just amazing to get out there with him and spend a day together doing some fun gun stuff.Β

Have fired 4-5 types of handguns, 6 or more types of rifles and several shotguns. Β Own a 20 gauge and a .38, do not carry.

Have found that most people (most, not all) that carry have small penises. Β I share that in case anyone has a betting opportunity.

Oct 31, 2021 - 11:13pm

I personally shot a lot from AKs to copper bronze and target markers. But the most fun for me wasn't the one with the biggest or loudest noise. I love the MP5 and MP7 they were easy to handle and very accurate compared to handling other guns. I can't and don't have a daily carry since it's against the law of where I am. But if I was cowboy I'd shoulder strap a silenced MP5. I also hunt too so that makes a Benelli.

You can't own a gun in NY?

I mean you can but the amount of hurdles you have to go through is quite ridiculous+ammo capacities, muzzle & stock restrictions, etc make it not worth it imo. would rather just drive to PA to shoot shit in peaceΒ 

Nov 1, 2021 - 11:33am

I love the shooting range very much. I have fired many weapons. From the usual Glock or Berrett to powerful shotguns, the recoil of which can trust you if you don't hold it back. Panzer Arms BP-12, IWI Tavor TS12 these combat shotguns are the best. We wrote above that an addiction to weapons is a desire to kill someone. I think that these people are very mistaken. Shooting has long been a professional sport and there are no hints of terrorism or violence.
