Not everthing modern I have is papered, since private sale in state is very legal. Some of these guns can't be traced to a living owner, and so far as I know dead is still dead and they ain't tellin'.

I got others in trade for carpentry roofing from a woman who didn't want any guns, but had some. I traded her fair, as i refuse to take advantage of those who don't know, and she was pleased as punch. Possibly you are the only one here who might know a Beretta Model 90, since they haven't made that model in years. A long time ago i found a guy on line that sells odd mags and bought one.

It's 32 acp, but I like the way it functions. Makes a good hip pocket shooter as a back up to the Rand.

Do you have any semi auto shooters with a de-c o c k ing lever? I can't get over that idea yet. Seeing the hammer fall that way just set me off. I am sayin then a hammer drops i expect to be hearin' a big BOOM, and get real squinchy anytime anyone with a gun that works that does it.

My eyes get as big as silver dollars I plug my ears for no reason and get low real fast.

I have done that in mud when a newbie points a firearm at me too. I am not the type to discourage a newbie, but try to make a minor point that it best not happen again.
I have one more that has a decocker. It's a HK USP-40. Hey Mac, a white piece of paper works too! LOL

That is true, however, you must be fully prepared to use it as well. I read in this thread that doing that was a myth! Not likely as almost any fool knows what a 12 Gauge shotgun and a 1911 .45 ACP handgun is. Damn near everyone knows that they are a REAL gun and poop their pants accordingly! LOL I remember when the first 1/2 polymer handguns came out. The worry law enforcement and others had was someone won't recognize it as a real firearm and act according. Those days are just about gone as you have GLOCK, S&W M&P, FN FNP, HK, Ruger, Beretta, KEL-TEC, KAHR and many others. You bet your arse they are a REAL GUN!

You would be surprised about that.

You haven't done anything until you have done 1000 rounds. Anything used by the military or law enforcement is your best bet. Most civilian only junkers would be broken by then. Stick with military and law enforcement weapons!

Yes, Smith & Wesson, Colt and Ruger revolvers were once law enforcement weapons. In some cases in very small towns they still are. They count too!

I am one of the ones who doesn't think the clicks made running a pump shot gun mean much. I own 3 of them. What means more, is that little BOOM when they speak.

I believe in NH the cops carry a 12 gauge pump locked in a holder loaded, so there is no need of them to be jackin that first round. Now i can't say I know that as fact, but i think so. August before last i was invovled in a crash, where a jeep hit a moose, and I hit the jeep. My ruined my ft fender on the kawii Nomad and so was nearly stopped. The moose had either a broken spine, or 2 rear broken legs and crawled off 1/4 mile into the swamp.

I was armed of course, but saw best to let the cops shoot the moose. When they came i tracked the moose for them in the dark, and took them to where the moose was. I never heard of saw any first round jacked into the chamber of that shot gun.

Yep, and Axle made a good point about ex military weapons being good for self defense, now if the SHTF I would love to own one of those 1500$ assualt rifles, but since I'm a little light on the cash I figure my Chinese SKS assualt rifle I bought for a 100$'s with the 30 round magzines duct taped together will just have to do. There short, handy, and money in the bank any garbage ammo feeds threw them and if thangs ever got stupid youd not thank twice about stashing a few here and there.
