Lets see your guns!

Tragically all my cool guns were lost in a boating accident years ago, all I have left is this old musket which holds only one round with a 2 minute reload time if it's not raining!

I'm thinking about diversifying my hunting rifles. The 700 is at the top of my list.
How do you like the scope?

As much as we like looking at each others "arsenals" I think we all should lay low about photos of what we have.
IMHO

Bulletproof and hobie, It sounds like you guys have lost your gun rights all ready

Unspoken I love the optic, most hardcore hunters laugh at the overkill of the round and the scope, most hunters stick with .300 Win Mag and X12 power scopes. I just wanted the most powerful 30 caliber round rifle in the lightest package available years ago which I tragically lost in the boating accident I mentioned above.

Xfire, that's an awesome collection! I really like the CZ.

Stripeknight, I agree with you on Bulletproof and hobie. Sad

Your collection is a fine one as well. I have a few others but sadly I don't have any pictures of! What!

I dont think it has anything to do with gun rights, some people are just more open about their firearms than others.

In this day and age of the internet it's impossible to keep things to yourself.

When we have newspapers reporting the names and addresses of CCW holders and info on pretty much anyone can be purchased posting pictures of you guns hardly makes it easier for a criminal to get them from us.

Since the lake is so deep and the bottom is deep with mud, I couldn't get a good shot of my lost guns.

my evil black hunting rifle

Mosin Nagant 91/30, Springfield 1903, and Enfield number 4 MK1*

9mm AR15


I have more but a showman never gives his audience the entire act at once.

Lets see your guns, said the guy who joined yesterday.

I'm researching an article and need pictures of your um, gun "collection".

How many rounds per second can you shoot? My dad has a Glock and can shoot like 500 rounds a minute. How fast can you shoot?

Where do you live?

How close are you to a school zone?

On pish posh, I am not 14...

You succumbed to the paranoia. Now my first response looks whacko.

Tell me where the boating accident occurred. I've got some scuba equipment and too much time on my hands.

Unspoken, it was in a Florida aligator infested lake in Alabama somewhere off the coast of Afganistan.. I didn't succumb, just thought it was funny!

Unspoken- unfortunately my GPS was lost too. But they are in Lake Superior. You should have no problem finding them though since you have time.

Nope, no reason to be paranoid but I'm not. Just very cautious about what people know about me and my little friends.

But that's just me. If you folks enjoy sharing pics, that's your perogative.

Have a good one!
