    Anyone tried the Ruger SR9 yet? I want to know how it compares to the Glock 18, can't decide on what to purchase, they both feel the same to me.

    That's for sure.
    But i allways get the feeling they don't feel to weel in terms of handling. But my experience in handling weapons is limited to air guns - strangely i sometimes wish to handle other guns, but when i got the chance ( a 'guest shooting' with the german Bundeswehr ) i didn't use the chance.

    No man, it's not banned at all, there's just a lot more regulation as compared to you guys. Remember that other thread we had a discussion about a dude here in Toronto that had his collection of 200+ firearms stolen? All legally bought.

    I'd have to go a background check etc etc, medical checks, criminal checks, which could take months... Just way too much of a hassle to simply have a few guns for displaying purposes.

    All you need is a PAL for rifles and a restricted (3 day course) for pistols.

    Christ, talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    I just recently bought a Sig Sauer 1911, in honor of its 100th birthday. I also own a Yugo SKS with a Tapco T6 stock, along with a few other rifles.

    I will not disclose my location at this time. Suffice it to say that I am far, far south.

    I do often travel to a place in Argentina called Villa General Belgrano for business and to see some old friends, but beyond that I cannot say any more.

    It could still take months, and once you send the PAL form out, they advice that you take in all the things I mentioned above, so thanks for coming out champ.

    It's not much of a hassle, "champ" - I've been to Toronto before, that's in Ontario. Lots of lazy hipsters, so it's no surprise that filling out a few forms becomes a "hassle". I prefer here, quiet, and literally no gun laws.

    I've been thinking of a Ruger Mini-30. DammitBoy, do you have any experience? I see you own a Mini-14 by Ruger.

    I've fired a C96 pistol, though it was chambered in 9x19. Quite an interesting firearm, in terms of design and history.

    It is for those of us who are interested in firearms, but owning one isn't high in the priority list.

    As for the rest of your post, meh. Living in Chile would be alright by me, but not due to its gun laws.

    I've shot one, never owned, it's basically the same weapon design - just the larger caliber.

    I know several guys who swear by them - but you'll find people who hate them as well. I discount a lot of the Ruger naysayers because there was a huge backlash that still exists from when Bill Ruger said americans didn't need ar15's. That and using the wrong grain bullet for the rifling in the mini-14's at one point.

    pixote, this thread is 74 pages long, and most of those pages have lots of pics of members firearm collections. Please take the time to look through it and you'll know more about what folks have and are interested in - it's a pretty diverse group...



    stuff like my mauser broomhandle and my ruger mark II

    I've heard that the Mini-30 is below par in terms of accuracy compared to the SKS.

    I don't believe much of what I've heard or read - opinions are like assholes, I don't want to see them.

    I post at several gun forums where everybody loves guns, except the ones the other guy owns. For every firearm you can name, you will find a thread where 50% say the gun is the next coming of christ and 50% say it's the worse crap ever made.

    I find a lot of the wheellock guns to be hideously pretty. I'd love to own one, though it, of ocurse, is hideously over complicated. Less comlicated, I, like most people, love lever actions and revolvers.

    I've been thinking about getting a Remington 1858 Army after seeing this video... they look like a lot of fun.

    MutantScalper, I think the General Discussion Forum isn't only about computer games, plus the Fallout series not only has guns in it, it also has gore, drugs, and prostitutes; if they're mature enough to play Fallout they're mature enough to look at this thread which is far less graphic then Fallout.
