    5.45x39 is a really fun cartridge. Low recoil, reasonably accurate. Sensitive to wind though.

    Enjoy.

    Not yet. Maybe later.
     
  6. Don't have the kind of cash for a REAL gun yet (still a student) but I do have a crosman 2100 air rifle. Want a pistol, but it's harder to get one in MI than most other states.

    You can buy a cheap AK for $350.

    A Mosin rifle is $69. :wink:

    No it is not. I live in Michigan. Sure, you have one or two more steps than are required in Somalia, but in Michigan, it is easier to buy a gun than to buy a blowjob (they dont sell those at Cabellas yet)

    Step 1. Find/decide on a pistol that you want.
    Step 2. Go to police station to get permit (takes 15 minutes)
    (Getting permit requires that you are not a felon or a retard)
    Step 3. take permit to seller and get pistol (NICS check time varies)
    Step 4. Take pistol and permit back to police station so they can "make sure pistol is not stolen)

    Go home with pistol.

    The end.

    Yeah, actually that is an awful lot of trouble.

    Here in glorious South Carolina it goes something like this.


    Step 1. Enter gun store

    Step 2. Give ID and select gun while they run background check.

    Step 3. Background check is done in 15-20 min, pay for gun.

    Step 4. Leave store.


    The entire process takes all of 30 min if you know what you want, the way it should be.

    More like:

    Step 1. Find/decide on a pistol that you want.
    Step 2. Go to police station to get permit (takes 15 minutes)
    Step 3. Contact your FFL dealer.
    Step 4. Contact the online store.
    Step 5. Order the firearm and wait for the dealer.
    Step 6. Go to the FFL dealer for NICS background check.
    Step 7. Get a "Delayed" and go home without the firearm and wait.
    Step 8. Go to the FFL again and pay, go home with the pistol.
    Step 9. Take pistol and permit back to police station so they can "make sure pistol is not stolen)
    Step 10. If you want to carry it, you must pay a lots of money, you must spend at least 8 hours at a safety course. Pay.
    Step 11. You must go back to the police station, again. Pay.

    Usually you can't find stores around the area, what is selling handguns too, and they sell perfectly the same what you want. I know only 1 place in my area, they sell handguns too, and all their guns are really overpriced.

    I have to agree about the lack of good stores in the area with good prices. Most are way expensive and or cater only to bubbas.

    As for having NICS troubles, i have a pretty unique name so its not an issue for me. IIRC if you have a C&R license or CCW NICS is not needed .... though some dealers want to do that anyway to justify the fees.

    I got 550 rounds of ammo with the pistol, along with eight boxes of hornady defense...



    I like their jhp/xtp line of ammo. About $25 for a box of 20 here.

    Store it?

    Well, some are displayed on the wall or over a fireplace, some are in the gun safe, several stay where I put them for defense, like the P14 in my truck, or my Para warthog in the nightstand.

    My wife keeps her ruger sp101 in her purse...

    ps - more than half of those are pistols, so they really don't take up a whole lot of space.
