I have a few high end 1911 (5 nighthawks). i bought them because I can. I also have 2 barrett 50's, HK MR762 with a $2000 scope as well as other high end stuff that I absolutely dont need.who hunts with a british bren MKII 303? the reason I got them is because I like to share shooting with people and most wouldn't get the chance to shoot the things I have. to see the look on their face shooting a rifle with a round the size of a hotdog is priceless. and also I own them because I have the means. if you had the $ would you buy a geo metro or a volvo? both would get you around but the volvo is a much nicer ride.
buy a gun. if someone attacks you shoot em.
how many more times are we going to cower under tables and chairs, whimpering like mindless dogs, thinking that someone else has the responsibility to save and protect us?
