    We gun people don't read. We shoot.

    Remember, though, "All guns are always loaded," "keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire," and "never cover anything with the muzzle you wouldn't be willing to shoot."


    Excellent. Three of the four rules. Those will usually get you by OK, but don't forget "be sure of your target, and what is beyond it".

    Edit: Oops, should have read the second page, but you still can't point this stuff out too much.

      This is a good pistol to start with:

      Ruger Mark II .22LR

        Yeah, it is a nice pistol. I have a blued finish Mark II. They are out of production now, replaced by the Mark III. They can still be had for pretty cheap though.

        A .22 is the perfect gun to start with. Ammo is plentiful and cheap.

          If you just want a gun "in case", get a Glock 19. IMO it's the most balanced choice out there for anything but hunting or bullseye. I've had other pistols but I'm down to the 19.

          Follow the advice in Phantasm and you'll be fine.

              I have the newer Mark III. You can't go wrong either way, but you can save a little coin if you can find a used Mark II. But good luck. I can't imagine ever selling mine.

                How dumb is this remark, unless you're trying for "humor."

                O/P: "I am looking for a car, any suggestions?"

                  the ironic thing about marc bolan is that he never learned to drive. for fear of dying in a car crash.

                  he died in a car crash, in the passenger seat.



                  just wanted to throw that out there.

                    I'd take a gun over a woman any day.

                    If it was a women you couldn't trade an old 44 for a new 22. You can also put a silencer on a gun. Hell - your freaken gun will even stay with you if you run out of ammo. Also - guns will function normally every day of the month.

                    I think we are missing the boat here. We need safety training for women...not guns.

                          I don't understand the "all guns are always loaded rule". Isn't that dangerous? I mean guns don't just go off, but isn't that stupid especially if you have kids in the house (not that you'd tell them where and how to get your guns anyway). Or does it have something to do with gun maintenance? Just curiosity here. I support the 2nd amendment to an extent.

                            This doesn't mean that you leave all your guns loaded. It means that you treat them as if they are loaded, whether they are actually loaded or not. Following this rule, or the one about not pointing the muzzle at anything you aren't willing to destroy, would have prevented the unfortunate death of Terry Kath alluded to earlier in the thread.

                              no. it's 'assume all guns are loaded'

                              not 'keep all guns loaded'.

                              kinda like you should always imagine a snake in your bed before going to sleep. just in case one day, there is one.

                                No one was ever accidentally shot with a loaded gun. These things always end with "Oh ****************! I didn't know it was loaded!" So, it's always loaded. Always. Don't point it at your own head, your buddy's gut - the ****************ing thing is loaded. Even when it isn't, it is.
