    When I was in Salt Lake City I stumbled across a gun store that had a few Benelli M1014s in stock. From what I've read it's a pretty nice gun and has some nice little tactical features that might be nice for your hunting

    If you're worried about price I got my P97 for $290 from these guys.
    May want to download their catalog. Sure you'll have to pay to have the gun shipped to a dealer and then the dealer's transfer fee, but they've got some deals that are good enough you'd still save considerably.

    Man, I just turned 18 and Idaho has the most lax gun laws in the country. I'm looking at a Ruger 10/22 for my first gun, but after I master that I'll probably move on to something a little more Mosin.

    Attack me with a bat. Than attack me with a katana. Guess which one I'd be more afraid of?

    You can STAB with a sword, which, if you were in a tight hallway, for example, would be useful. You can only bludgeon with a bat, and people are less intimidated by it, especially if they have a knife themselves. If they have a gun you are done either way.

    Maybe this is a good time to mention to never underestimate the effectiveness and intimidation factor of a bayonet :) Especially if the damn thing is at least a foot and a half long like for the M91

    I would only really use the semi-auto for trap shooting with multiple launches. Unless you intend to take down a whole flock or gaggle yourself (which I rarely do, fowl hunting is best with friends... just don't bring a Cheney) there is no reason for a semi-auto shotgun, especially a "tactical" one. Tactical shotguns tend to be way too short and inaccurate for serious hunters after ducks and geese which can get pretty high and far pretty rather quickly.

    Also, I hate Salt Lake City with a fiery fucking passion that could teach the sun a thing or two about warmth, with the exception of Gallenson's, which is very likely the best gun store in the state and the only reason I'll step near SLC. Probably even the place you're talking about, since they have near everything.

    I have this huge fucking gun that fires huge fucking missiles. I mostly use it to kill people who walk in front of my house and for torturing little animals, but when it comes to self defense I rely on my trusty suitcase nuke I have on my nightstand.

    If you want good gun laws, try Alaska, Vermont, or NH. All have full, no permit, open carry and NH is the only one that requires a concealed license at $10 for 4 years, shall-issue. Also check out

    As for the guns I have, a .40 Glock (model 22), a .44 mag Ruger Super Blackhawk, and a S&W K-Frame .22 revolver. My next buy is a rifle or carbine, still looking though.

    May have been the place. All I remember was it was down the street from a big 50s looking hotel we stayed at. I think there was also a Kinko's and Starbucks nearby. You see, I was there for a debate tournament and several people were like "I need to run some copies of evidence", some other people were like "I want some Starbucks", and of course I was like "kickass, there's a gun store".

    It's all good. I'll be commissioned in a few years anyway, so just about anywhere I'd go the gun laws would be favorable for me.

    So you are a terrorist. :!:
    Shouldn't you be using the suitcase nukes for the little animals and to reduce the number of hippy neighbors you have, as you told us that you have dozens of nukes. :wink: And you wouldn't want to be in the blast zone, when they go off, would you. Unless you want to revaluate your life purpose for the slight chance to became an Idisar, a centralized nuclear reaction summoned creature of nightmares. :twisted:

    I have a Sharps like in Quigley Down Under and a Mauser rifle that's so old I bought it through the MAIL. I have others, but those are my favorites.

    I don't have a gun and to tell you the truth they really creep me out. There are so many unbalanced people in society (including female cops!), so I don't like the idea of anyone having them unless they need them for their work.

    They make it very hard to get guns in Australia unless you're a criminal. ;)

    I have a Sig 9mm pistol but I have to leave it in the storage because my GF hates guns.

    Can't believe no one owns an 8 shells' shotgun like mine, it's a classic and punch the ideal ass-kicking fire power any civilian needs to defend it's home.

    What's so wrong with female cops? I can imagine, but tell me you impression on the subject.

    nice 1911 Prez, but I'd prefer a Kimber in that pricerange.

    what do you use the Auto-5 for? (other than posing :P)

    i'm currently trying to acquire a Saiga 12K (from Izhmash, ze heum of ze Kalash, this should make The Commissar happy!), but that'll take a while... as each seperate gun needs a new license overhere, I get to wait between 6 and 10 months to have this shit approved.

    Yeah Kimbers are pretty sweet but theyre not the same price range I got my springfield for. I shoot skeet with my auto 5 and just so you know Makenshi my shotgun holds 5 rounds and it's semi-auto because pumping is for suckers

    once imported, their price difference is negligible overhere. ofc, guns cost like 2 to 3 times more overhere than in the States.

    the Saiga comes with 2, 5, 8 or 10 shell mags. the biggest custom mag i've seen was 16x 12 gauge 3" shells. that's a bit sick (not to mention those have about the highest rate of fire on the semi-auto market).

    i think i'm going with the 8 shell mags. (if i can get my bloody license approved)

    Yeah I got my Springfield for just over 500 when a Kimber would have run 700 to over 1000 depending on the model.
