Weapons? What do you own?

My son in law has a high end Kimber. Nice pistol and it shoots great, but $$$.

One thing I like about SIG's is they offer .22 kits for a lot of their pistols, which makes range ammo costs way lower while maintaining the same feel (save for the recoil.)

Estwing 28oz Framing hammer, and a roofing hatchet (of the same brand), for close quarter combat, if you happen to encounter it, you're not going to enjoy it.

Remington 870 pump action so I don't have to get get "too up close and personal" with ya. My house layout has several "choke points" that I never thought about when i bought it, but from a defensive POV, I gotcha.

Latest addition to my collection. Bought it used from a friend of mine. Looks to be cleaned well and in good shape except for some scratches where it looks like he took one of the screws out back next to the handle on the left side to disassemble it. It's a Heritage "Rough Rider" .22 caliber revolver.

I loved the saw, I carried one down range. Love the M4 too, so much that I bought a Windham Weaponry AR-15 so I could have my own, lol.

If you're that adverse to weapons in general, then don't bother posting in a thread that revolves around it.

On topic, I'm thinking of buying the S&W bodyguard for my wife, anyone have any experience with it?

I used to be into full-auto weapons pretty hardcore when i got out of the military. I owned some ak47's, a few m16's and an MP5. Now all I own is a 12 guage mossberg I trap shoot with, my .338 laupa I hunt/distance shoot with, and a Colt 1911 I got as a christmas gift from my Father in law.

Haven't owned a lot of Smith weapons, but I would recommend renting one at a range or something and trying it out. I have a S&W Sigma in .40 that I really like, but I bought it as my first pistol because it was cheap. It had a REALLY stiff trigger out of the box and I had to take it apart and remove some springs to soften it to a point where I could shoot the weapon accurately. My dad had a S&W pistol and he also said that it had an unusually stiff trigger. Anyway, I recommend going out and shooting one at a range before actually committing yourself to taking it home, so you can make sure it feels good and you can hit a target with it.

Just realized I've never uploaded a photo of my knife. This is a knife I got and used while I was in the Army. I've sharpened it to give it a nice edge and use it primarily as a gutting knife, or to cut through bones when dressing out animals now. It's a Gerber, not sure if they have "models" on knives, but it's been very reliable. The back end of the handle has a point for knocking out windows if you are trapped in a vehicle, it locks into the sheath and the steel runs all the way through the rubber grip on the handle (I believe that's called full tang) so it's very solid. It also came with legstraps so you can attach the top to a belt and run a legstrap through the bottom to keep it from bouncing around as you walk.

The house that I used to own was similar. The only two doors were the front door into the living room or the back door into the kitchen. The only way out of the living room was also into the kitchen. Once someone was in the kitchen, they were in a direct line-of-sight from my bedroom door. They would have two options once in that kitchen - bloody up my floor or leave through the back door again (which put them inside my back yard surrounded by an 8 foot privacy fence).

None, unless kitchen knives count. Guns make me uncomfortable but that might just be cause I'm Australian and I've never felt the need/desire....

Just finished assembling the parts for an AR-15 over the Thanksgiving holiday. I'll try to upload a picture of it next time I get on. Looking at getting a tactical shotgun next. Maybe one of these: Beretta 12 ga

Just made a new purchase. I bought three 80 Lb Cobra Self-cocking Crossbow Pistol and a total of 300 bolts. Daughter and wife been wanting one.

http://www.misdefens...b.-p-22222.html

Nice before I got into guns I thought about getting a crossbow myself but I wanted to get one of the ones that are more rifle like though, they go from like 150 bucks and up. May still get one, one of these days.

Just bought me a redi-mag for my AR-15.. Couple more months and it will be tax return time. Can't wait, don't know if I want another AR or another AK.

Just got my redi-mag through the mail, installed it. It doesn't add as much weight as I thought it would have.

While I wait to get my tax return and buy another gun, I bought this cold steel gladius machete. They call it a machete but really its a cheap sword. Had black paint on it but I removed most of it.

So I made a big decision today. I've been carrying a Smith & Wesson Sigma in .40 caliber, complete with a trigger I modified myself, for my concealed carry weapon. However, since I don't fire it very often, the magazine spent a lot of time loaded, and I'd had it fail to feed a couple of times due to weak magazine springs, and had to dis-assemble my magazines and stretch the spring back out for it to resume proper functioning. I tried switching magazines occasionally and keeping about 10 instead of the max of 14 rounds in the magazine, but it didn't seem to help. After a couple of weeks being loaded, if I fired it, I'd inevitably have it fail to feed once or twice until I stretched the springs back out. I figured that if I was going to keep a pistol on me at all times, and I'm not going to shoot it a lot, a revolver would be better because I could keep it loaded without placing any pressure on spring-loaded mechanisms that could affect the weapon's ability to function properly if I ever did need to use it in an emergency situation. Not only that, but I happen to think revolvers look kind of sexy.

Anyway, I sold my .40 and bought a revolver chambered in .357 magnum. I like it. It's small enough to fit into my pocket easily, but still has a full size hand-grip so it fits my hand well. I picked up some .38 special rounds for it since none of the stores around here that were open on a Sunday had .357 magnum, and at least with the .38 special it doesn't kick very hard. It's got a ported barrel to help with the recoil as well. Overall I'm pretty happy with the switch.

Just picked up a Spyderco Tenacious. The build quality on it is amazing for it being a budget folder.

Although pocket knives hardly count as a "weapon" some would consider them as such I guess.

Been thinking of getting a spider-co knife for a while. A friend of mine really likes them, and they seem to be great tools. I'd consider it a weapon, and a pretty good one if used properly. Where'd you get yours, did you have to order it from them or can they be found in retail stores?

Amazon, $33.

It can be found in retail stores, and select sporting good stores. Heck, Wal-Mart may even have them.

I was apprehensive at first because the only other Spyderco I owned was a Centofante 3, and I wasn't impressed at all by it. But this Tenacious shattered any and all perceptions I had of Spyderco knives, fantastic utility blade.

Left and Right Fist. Don't need anything else. If someone wants to shoot me they can do it from behind whether I'm armed or not.

Got me a used pickup the other day so my wife and I both have a vehicle since we're both working now; an old '99 Dodge Dakota Sport, 3.9L V-6 magnum, 5 speed manual transmission. Today I got a gun rack for the back window. As it turns out, this small pickup is just "barely" wide enough to fit my AR in the rack. If I extend the buttstock, or if I'd moved it any further toward my seat, it would have put the rifle behind my seat, and I'd have had to lean it forward, which is uncomfortable for me. Haven't tried out my 30-06 or my shotgun yet, hopefully they all fit ok, but since the AR is what I carry around by default unless I'm hunting something that needs a bigger round, it's good that at least it fits.
