Guns and the giggle factor.lol

OK here's one of my long stories agine.lol.When I was Young I was introduced to firearms by my dad.My mom had just bought a .30-06 boom stick for my dads birthday.And he was tickled pink,And the only time would ever see pink on my dad .lol.Now all my aunts and uncles were there and they wanted too see it in action.So he set up a water melon on a block of wood.Now at this point in my life (five years old or so) I had only seen guns and rifles on TV.So he says too me would you like too try. I said "OK". Now being a little kid I had no idea what I was really about to do ,because on TV the good guy walked it off if he got shot several times.lol.I knew it was going to make a pop! sound.lol.But still in the dark about it.But before I could send the water melon too meet its maker my dad says too me"this is not a toy,never point the barrel at anything unless you intend too shoot it.Always!always treat it likes it loaded even if its not"

SO he helps me hold it up because it was longer then I was tall.lol.puts the butt of the rifle against his shoulder and I put my arm around it too reach the trigger.I take aim on the melon still not really knowing whats about too happen.which was good because I wasn't scared of it,I didn't know any better.lol.

He says "fire when your ready"I close one eye and squeeze the trigger,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,well I didn't here the pop because the BOOM! was too loud.lol.I still felt a little of the recoil too but my dad took most of it.lol.After the Little flash and big boom the water melon turned too a splattered chunk of pink misst.lol.Well everyone started laughing.I was so stunned for at lest 30 seconds before I started giggling.I had a look of surprise on my face that I wouldn't have again till I saw my first boobys.lol.

So my dad gave me his old rifle .303 Lee enfeild No4 MK1 1942 model he bought from the sears catalogue for $19.95 when he was younger.And even at 35 I still giggle after every shot.lol.

.460 weatherby is one of the worlds most practical elephant guns.Wait? you cant put practical and elephant gun in the same sentace.lol.But any way being addicted too boom sticks of large calibre's Ive never passed up the opportunity too try new rifles.So one day I'm at a friend from schools place,his dad is a Big gun nut.He says I can try the .460 if I pay for the round.So I said "OK".

Although I would never hunt a rhino or elephant,to try something powerful enough to stop one of those animals from charging was going too be interesting.they have something like 7500 too 8000 lb of hitting power.lol.Too give you and idea of how much that is ,I have shot through old car doors in one side and out the other with the .303. and it only has about 1200lbs of hitting power.Yip 7500-8000lb.lol

Being a big boy at the time(teeny bopper lol) i had too hold this beast myself.He wouldn't let me use the pod.lol.I don't remember what I shot but it was funny.I was more focused on not having my arm ripped off.lol.

So I chamber the big .460 round, step into it and,,,BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

MY front foot comes off the ground abit.The barrel is in the %70 position and my ears are ringing like mad. I hand the rifle back too his dad.And after the initial car accident feeling went grabbed my shoulder laughing hunching over.I said "oh my god that hurt so bad,giggle ,giggle, Let me try that again?"What a blast, what fun,And I had a really stunned look on my face after that, and a few weeks later I got too se boobys too.lol

I know theres alot of people who dont like firearms,thats ok.Or people who dont like to hunt,and people who like to shoot but not hunt.And thats ok too.

Whats was your first boom stick experience for you?

What is it that you like about it?

Have any women on here ever tyred an elephant gun?Are they still alive?lol

I think firearms are such a great sport.Do you think people who dont use them dont understand them properly?

An thoes of you who dont use them ,do you just see them as weapons not tools?and why?

Anything we put in our hands can be a weapon or a tool.

As someone that appreciates hunting but is "pro" gun control whether tools or weapons the inescapable fact can't be denied, the more heavily armed a population is and the more unfettered access to firearms is the more chance we all have of being injured or killed by a gun, period. We don't have the worst problem with guns in the developed world for no particular reason. Southern cities don't have higher gun death rates than Northern ones for no particular reason.

IMHO and with all due respect if you need an assault weapon to defend your home you should move.

Mavcom,

I'm technomoronman, can't seem to find an unbiased source or anyone for that matter that shows plausible methodolgy in the collection and consolidation of any such statistic? If there is any kind of substantiated consensus on this out there I'd be most appreciative to be directed to it? Can you help me out?

Thanks,

John

Guns don't kill people...ammo kills people.


Reminds me of a line from a B-movie starring Clive Owen... "Shoot'em Up"

"Guns don't kill people... but they sure help."

My first experience with target-shooting was in the Air Cadets. We had a couple of surplus .303s that we could bring to the local range every few weeks. It was an interesting experience, but I preferred other aspects of the training. (Meteorology and aerodynamics, to name two... )

One time, we had the opportunity to go to a local Canadian Forces base and do target shooting with their 'issue' weapons - the NATO version of the M-16 semi-automatic rifle. It had a slightly bigger recoil 'kick' than the ones we normally used... and one girl suffered a black eye when the gunsight hit her in the eye. (She was afraid of the kick, and held the stock away from her shoulder...)

I haven't done any shooting since... but don't want to deny anyone the opportunity to do so - as long as they do it in a safe manner.

Firearms are certainly not toys and care should be taken in their use,but that doesn't prevent funny things from happening in their use. Kind of like vehicles,isn't it? They can be dangerous too if used improperly but we all laugh like hell at those videos where someone hits the gas instead instead of the brake and ends up in a building.

There's a few funny things I can remember. Once a friend of my brother's wanted to try my shotgun. He was afraid of the recoil so he put the butt under his arm rather than against his shoulder. Well,he probably would have had a sore shoulder,but that wouldn't have been as bad as the broken nose that resulted when the gun flew up and hit him in the face.
Once during a muzzleloading competition I was using my 12 gauge shotgun in a smoothbore event. I was putting in the powder when another shooter asked me for help. I gave him a hand and upon getting back to my gun I realized I couldn't remember where I was in the loading process. I upended the barrel and powder fell out,so I added the proper load. What I hadn't considered is that not all the powder had come out. I had to aim about a foot high to compensate for the drop the 500 grain ball,but when I fired this round my front foot came right off the ground and the ball hit right where I was aiming,above the target. My shoulder was so sore I didn't shoot very well for the rest of the day.
In the late 80's I worked at a gun shop for a time. We sold a lot of collector firearms including some models of sub-machineguns that had been converted to semi-automatic. On a boring Saturday a customer was looking at a Tommy gun and asked what it was like to shoot one. We had a "bang box" in the back storage room,a 3 ft sq box half full of sand to catch the bullet. I told him he could give it a try,so I took the gun and a couple of rounds and off we went,myself,him,his two buddies,and a couple of co-workers who'd never seen a Thompson fired either. What I forgot to tell the fellow was to make sure the muzzle was completely in the hole in the top of the box. We were in a room about 8x8 and nobody was wearing hearing protection,and when he fired the gun the muzzle was just out of the hole. You can probably imagine the bang! I spent the rest of the day trying to hear what other customers were saying to me.

There's a lot more stories from 30 years of fireams handling. I'll add more later. Those were my most memorable.

This post is for the anti-gun people that say more guns lead to more gun crime. Have any of you ever heard of what they do in Switzerland? They keep their military rifles at home with them! And the Swiss have low crime.

The Swiss Army is the militia system. Professional soldiers constitute only about 5 percent of the military . All the rest are conscript citizens aged from 20 to 34 (in special cases up to 50) years. The structure of the Swiss militia system stipulates that the soldiers keep their own personal equipment, and personal weapons, at home.

I think we should punish the people who commit crimes and not look at them as a confused, under privileged, innocent victims of "have nots".

A armed population protects the very freedom that most people assume will always be there.......

If pro gun control people ran our nation in 1776 we'd still be a part of England in 2009...........

Mavcom,

Many thanks for your well considered response. I am of course familiar with Professor Kleck. He is a great source but many people, IMHO of course, try and use his statistic out of context.

There's no doubt that a gun in the hand of an INDIVIDUAL can prevent a crime. That however does not change the extent statistical fact though that more guns has indeed equaled a greater liklihood of gun crime, violence, and accidental shooting across the general POPULATION.

Some folks like to assert that gun bans have caused a spike in British Crime. I challenge anyone here to provide verifiable documentation that a higher percentage of the British population has been shot than ours.

As to concealed carry: It does stand to reason that would certainly cause some criminals to have second thoughts about where they exercise their craft. Again however, there is as far as I can tell no verifiable statistical evidence to show a marked drop in gun crime where there are concelaed weapons allowances. After the VA Tech shootings police pointed out that concealed carry on that campus very well could have exascerbated that tradjedy since when the police arrived they would have absolutely no idea who was friend or foe.

mmalueg said: "A armed population protects the very freedom that most people assume will always be there......."

With all due respect in reality it is our well regulated militia, today's military that ultimately does that, not John Q. Public. The ultimate question here is who's freedom supercedes who, the individual's right to bear arms or a community's rights to have statisticly safer communities? And again since your not the only person to miss this, as of March 14, 2009 more guns have always equaled more death out of wart zones, period. You may value your "freedom" more than the public well being but fortunately not all of us do. As to the second Ammendment and freedom pardon my asking but EXACTLY what well regulated militia do you belong to mmalueg?

Firearms companies have , among othert things, manufactured cheap throw away guns that's only convenience/benfit is the low cost if disposal of said gun is required for any reason, criminal or otherwise. Among other things I am not OK with that, and if any of you are please do explain.

As to the founders: Do any of you really think any of them envisioed assault rifles? Cheap, multichambered hand guns? Do you think they might have been wise in the militia stipulation? I for one do not expect the recent Supreme Court case to stand indefinitely. What right does the federal government have to tell individual jurisdicitons personal rights supercede those of the statisticly proven public good?

Thanks again Mavcom. Disagreement is so much more rewardng when it is civil. I know I have by no means "won" any argument here. I do however hope some of our other friends, on both "sides" of the issue, choose to go through life a little less detached from reality than they have to this point.

Thanks again gentlemen,

John

Regarding message #18

You know we have Freedom of Speech.. But why are there no laws regulating what the individual says? After all you might insult someone...... Perhaps we should regulate speech and make a society were people are not offended by what others talk about on TV, Radio the Internet. Many people across the general POPULATION take offense to what others say. So lets regulate speech.....
(That was heavy sarcasm and only made to make a point)

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed"

I do not belong to any militia...yet. If needed I would answer and join/form a militia.(was in the Army reserve for 6 years) Militia men just show up when they please and leave when they want. They are unpaid, non government troops. Also my guns are locked up in a gun vault(It would take a lot of time and effort to get into there) Many anti gun advocates claim that the National Guard is the "well regulated Militia". But this is so far from the truth since the Guard was formed in 1903 (Well after the US Constitution was written and the National Guard is not entirely independent because they may be federalized) True the founders may not have in-visioned "assault rifles" back in their time. But do you think they envisioned TV, Radio, internet when they wrote the first Amendment? Maybe free speech should only apply to what the founding fathers we aware of. News papers, books and public gatherings. You agree right? After all that is the case that you are making here. "being necessary to the security of a free State" Its so clear that that founders did realize the importance of having a armed population that could "even" the odds if the Government became oppressive or if we were invaded. So I do strongly believe they would want weapon's that could "even" the odds in the general populations hands in the future just as I think the founders would want us to have free speach on the TV, radio and internet. The "well regulated militia" was wording that the general population was familiar with. Just like the no "bills of credit"(paper money with nothing to back them as we have with the current Federal Reserve System) So far we the people have not rid ourselves of the Money masters(The private Federal Reserve system) but people are waking up all across America on behalf of that issue. Join in the "End the Fed" rallies on 4-25-2009!

Anti-gunners however will jump at any chance they can get to get rid of the Second Amendment. How come they don't look at the rest of the sentence-- "being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Its clear as night and day......"the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed". Pretty clear.

I also have never even committed a crime(unless you count that speeding ticket 10 years ago) So why should I not be able to own a firearm? Am I not trust able???

If England would have disarmed the American population sooner then there would have been no revolution.

Gun control does work though...Just ask the experts--Hitler, Stalin....They understood the greatness of gun control.

We can out right ban guns but there will still be gun crime. (Or knife(etc) crime in which the victim can't fight back as easy)

We banned alcohol (Prohibition) and it lead to lots of crime and at the end of the day if you wanted alcohol you could find it.

We have multi bans on drugs and in the end the drug cartels are getting rich by running drugs and the general public can get the drugs they want if they look for them.

This idea of just "banning" something to solve a problem seems to never work and leads to stronger criminal organizations and more wasteful government spending to fight the problem.

So how can a person say that by "banning" guns that gun crime will go down? If anything it only makes the potential victim a easier target.

Lets actually lock up the people that commit crime and stop this non sense of rehabilitation of criminals.

Last I checked drugs were illegal and they seem to be pretty easy to find...why is that? After all they are banned...

Adding on to my response at message #19 regarding message #18.

You know you actually got me thinking a lot and here is my answer to your question when you asked me "What well regulated militia I belong to? " This well regulated Militia I belong to only has one member...myself.(Officially formed when I turned 18 years old)(Finally realized I am a one man well regulated militia as of 3-14-2009..thanks for getting me thinking!!) Therefore your argument over that wording has now been dismissed. (I have to say that regulating this militia has gone well because of it's low membership..)

The "well regulated militia" was wording that the general population was familiar with back then since many of them were "well regulated militia men" they showed up when needed to protect liberty and farmers, blacksmiths, or builders when liberty was safe and secure. But still well regulated one man militia's ready to answer liberty's call.

So I conclude that the individual can self "regulate" him/herself as a member of a one person "militia" they just need to "regulate" themselves "well." A example of poor self regulation that would nullify the second Amendment for the individual would be a individual that has committed a violent crime against the general public or persons.

There are many definitions of "Militia" this is the one that applies to the militia I belong to----

Definition of Militia---A private, non-government force, not necessarily directly supported or sanctioned by its government.

I'm private, a non government force and not supported or sanctioned by the government.

The individual is the "well regulated militia" membership 1......and therefore has the right to keep and bear arms.

Well I wouldnt say we have a gun problem up here in canada as much as you guys to the south.But we still have problems.Now my hole life Ive look at fire arms as tools(hunting stuff like that).I never think of personal protection when it comes to firearm.But I know how to use it if i needed too.

gun controll is funny because even if you ban them like your saying ,the bad guy doesnt care he still carrys.lol.

Im not aginest semi autos for the target range, but not for hunting.Bolt ,lever, pump,break barrel or single shooter is plenty good enough.

your telling me you can pull the rigger on a .460 and not get a rise out of it?Up here in Canada we cant carry hand guns in puplic.I dont really feel the need in a small town of 78 or so to have a hand gun, but its spring and my .303 is on bear alert.lol. but even at that I dont feel threaten at all.I dont veiw rifles as wepons as much.There more like a really usefull tool.That makes you use skills .Now if your hunting do you take one bullet during hunting season and go ? No! you fire off a few (812) rounds to practice first.lol.

As for me being a nut job?I accedently shot all my imaginary friends,so now Im just happy go lucky.lol

People sometimes forget that multi-barrelled weapons were quite functional during the American Revolution and before...the Duckfoot pistol comes immediately to mind...so do 3 & 4-barrel shotguns.

Later on came the LeMat revolver...a six-shooter with a center shotgun barrel.

And only the largest Country Boy could handle the 2 & 4 gauge shotguns...But they sure are FUN!!

My first giggle...was after firing the M-60 machine gun for the first time...bloody well gave me a Steel Woody!!

I grew up on a pretty large farm in Kentucky, so grew up with a lot of firearm experience. And I get the giggle factor of being young, and seeing something
get splattered for the first time.
But after being a paratrooper for 11 years, and seeing what one can do to a human being... Well. The giggle factor should be taken out. It's not cool. It's not funny.
So have respect for your weapon when you handle it.

The town of Kennesaw in Georgia passed a law in 1982 that required the head of every household to own a gun. The crime rate and especially violent crime plummeted, not only that, but not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting since it passed. Here's an article that talks about it and an excerpt, the source seems a little biased, but if the statistics are accurate then they speak for themselves.

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=55288

In March 1982, 25 years ago, the small town of Kennesaw – responding to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill. – unanimously passed an ordinance requiring each head of household to own and maintain a gun. Since then, despite dire predictions of "Wild West" showdowns and increased violence and accidents, not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender.

The crime rate initially plummeted for several years after the passage of the ordinance, with the 2005 per capita crime rate actually significantly lower than it was in 1981, the year before passage of the law.

Prior to enactment of the law, Kennesaw had a population of just 5,242 but a crime rate significantly higher (4,332 per 100,000) than the national average (3,899 per 100,000). The latest statistics available – for the year 2005 – show the rate at 2,027 per 100,000. Meanwhile, the population has skyrocketed to 28,189.

He hadn't hit the dog, so he just chucked his gun at it--and broke it's neck. We all laughed so hard, it was a one in a million chance to hit just right, but now every time I hear the phrase, "guns don't kill people" I have to giggle.


The gun didn't kill anyone. It killed a dog

You think a watermelon getting shot will make you laugh you should try shooting dynamite, it is a blast. I am very into guns, so much that if I thought they would be in jeopardy of me being in a relationship I would avoid the relationship. My first gun experience was with machine guns and silencers, I was reloading ammo and servicing my uncles minigun by 10. Don't know how many I own now but it is over 400 as that was the last count and I have added to it.

As for shooting big things try a .50bmg which is many times the power of the 460 with less kick or a 20mm rifle. A 50 will drop anything in its tracks. Got a few of each.

Try a minigun on a car with about 10,000 rounds of ammo, talk about fun. A few minutes or so the 10,000 rounds is gone and so is the car.

If you really want to try a challenge,pick up a muzzleloading rifle that shoots round balls and try some "novelty" events. This is where you try do such things as cutting strings,hitting matchsticks,splitting playing cards(placed so that the thin edge is toward you),or snuffing candles(without actually hitting the candle). These are all shot at a distance of 10-20 yards.

One that's a lot of fun and very challenging is the "split-the-ball" shoot. An axe head is placed with the cutting edge facing the shooter,and a clay pigeon is placed on each side. To win it the shooter must hit the cutting edge of the axe so that the lead ball is cut in two pieces and each clay pigeon is broken.

Another you can do with smokeless rifles as well is the "water can shoot". Take an aluminum pop can,cut the top off it,fill it with water,then place another empty can on top of it. There's 2 shooters,one with a rifle,one with a shotgun. The rifleman shoots the bottom can. The water is forced upwards blowing the top can into the air where the shotgun shooter tries to hit it. I've seen that can go a hundred feet up.

I've done all of these. I'm a top shot with a muzzleloading rifle and I regularly win events like this. On a good day,that is.

its a shame that the folks that dont shoot.....or worse.the ones who want to get rid of guns dont know the profound joy that comes with shooting....or the sense of accomplishment you get when you hit what you want.........forget killing for a moment............yes..guns kill............but thats not why we shoot

theres a lil kid still inside each one of us who likes to see things blow up..............fill a waterjug and hit it with a high power bullet........i doubt theres a person alive who wont be smileing after they hit it..........or frozen water ballons with a .22........finally hitting your first claybird................and dont even get me started about overripe watermelons and cantelopes
