I will start by saying that I am not trying to "bust your balls" Mr.Snake over this issue, but the alarm has been sounded and it is time for 'all hands on deck'.

Your comments about CC and wishing to wound and not shoot to kill has most likely 'lit up this site', in fact I know it has or I would not be posting this.

My friend, carrying a 'deadly weapon' is a serious.... ne, beyond serious responsibility, as others have said, it requires a certain 'frame of mind' that one must achieve before undertaking said responsibility.

You are a young man, maybe give it some time before you get your CC permit, concentrate on school and a career and most of all, concider the advice of your elders here on Gunslot, we wish you nothing but success and I for one hold you in high regard, continue with the shooting sport and enjoy.....Just wait a while for the CC permit!

P.S. I started this thread because I just can't stand 'fighting' my way to the end of a multi page thread!

If you want to "be like the guys on this site", then be yourself.
If I am right, thats all any of these guys are doing. No cloak and dagger shit, just guys being guys. Sure, there are some hard cases here. I got a feeling some of them will fuck you up just for looking at them wrong. Thats just who they are. What you carry or if you carry don't mean shit on line.
Again, be yourself. There aint no heros on gunslot. Just a bunch of guys who like guns and women.

Respect commands itself and it can neither be given nor withheld when it is due

take it for what its worth. you are an integral cog in the Gunslot world..I feel i did you a disservice today by not pointing out some things.. Hampster is got the proper view of the problem

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

Jon, we all remember

how it is to be young.......Sigh!....I have an 18yo that can't leave the 'internals' of his Subie alone (cams to be exact), he keeps fucking with the valve lash even though I spent my Fathers day setting it correctly after we put in his 'high lift cam's' ....why does he do that? cause he is young, what was I doing at his age? About the same thing, tearing cars apart and struggling to put them back together (except I didn't have a new car or a father that was a mechanic), where did I end up? Airframe mechanic in the Coast Guard and gun lover/hotrodder to this day.

I for one can look past any indiscretions/exaggerations as far as the past is concerned, so you were less than truthfull about owning a gun or being married, you are young and learned your Gunslot lesson. If it was someone 30 ish or older, I would say "kick em' to the curb"....You my friend are at the school of hard knocks!

Peace out Player pimp

Hamp

(edit) thirtyish??? Ne, late twenties MAX!

concentrate on your marksmanship skills. Really. Get yourself up to speed at the range. I went through all the NRA "exercises." Shoot a paper plate this way. Shoot a paper plate that way. Do this. Do that. Get better. Get good. Whatever it takes to get totally familiar with your firearm so that it's second nature. I've seen this so many times. Some guy comes onto the range and he's had his pistol for years, but he keeps it locked away and when he gets there he's not quite sure where the safety is! Argh!!!!

If you possibly can, consider a course at Frontsight or a similar school. I know they look expensive, but the fact is that Ignatius gives you so many deals over time that there's no way you can't afford one. That $2,000 course can be had for $100 if you pay attention. I bought a lifetime membership in 4 courses for less than $500. Ask LLE. He speaks highly of this. The thing is, they teach you the right mindset, and I think this is the main thing your fellow brothers on gunslot are concerned about.

There is no way I can get out to AZ for frontsite but I did get the DVD from them a while back and it looks fun and educational. I cannot afford front site as of now. I am a pretty good shot with the 2 guns I have but I am no expert with them. I will do some lookin around and see if there are any traning courses around here in fire arms. Thanks for the advice Sky.

Well hampster

I am glad you understand my position. Thanks pard. I have learned me lesson and I am trying to make up for what I did in the past by being all truthful in my comments. I joke like all members but in times of seriousness like now for example I am always truthful. Its up to the members to beleive me. I am not gonna make them. I did lie back when I first joined. I did Lie about having guns. At the time I joined I only had 2 pellet guns. And now I have a Marlin and a Higgins. Greasypaws gave me my first gun which was me .410 Higgins,and I bought me Marlin with my own money. 5 weeks from now will make my second year on gunslot and I am doin my best to right the wrongs I have done in the past. I am beggin all members who do not like me to forgive me and give me a chance to better me self here.

well at least it feels that way anymore. Hey snake we bust your chops here well because thats what real guys do. Especially guys that were in the military. But we're also trying to look after you since you are the youngen around here. Carrying a weapon and using it to actually kill someone takes alot of thought wayyyyyyy before you should ever carry. Would I kill someone? I can honestly say yes. This isn't macho bullshit it comes from years of training in the military and from maturity that you get as you grow older. I have a family and 2 beautiful daughters to come home to each night (well one is away serving her country) my mind is set that if it ever comes down to me or them not coming home it'll be them. This is a decision you need to look really deep inside yourself and ask could I live with myself if I had to take anothers life? Yes or no doesn't make you a man, there is no right or wrong answer. But if you feel that you couldn't kill someone than you have no buisness carrying. There are plenty of gun people who don't carry, but that doesn't make them less of a gun nut. it makes them a honest person because they know there limitations.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

If someone don't like you for something you already apologised for, then maybe, they just don't like you. Some folks just don't jive. Don't lose any sleep over it. People in islamic countries hate me and don't even have a clue I exist. Bigger fish to fry son.

Snake, I pulled up your info. to get a better look at you. After reading stuff you have writen, I see that you got more f**ing questions than a 7 year old! Now ?s are ok, but lord son go back and read them. I was gonna give you HELL. Sence you r allready there I can't give you any : )
Then after I got back on track reading what the Guys wrote to you. A lot of good advice was offered.
If you have a need to to hunt______ let me refraze( chill out Schyler, I'll check word 4 the correct spell'n)! I have no idea if you have ever taken an animals life. If you feel the need to draw blood, and see what a bullet can do, then I say, borrow a shotgun, or large rifle and qunch your thoughts on a jack rabbit. But remember don't take a life just to take it!! I feel the need to empisize this to get you past your curiosity, if what I am thinking, is correct. You don't know what damage a weapon can do.
I understand your youth, I think you need to take a CC course(not nessalary to get a permit) but to understand more, like the laws, understand the do's don'ts about when it's even legal to use a weapon on another human. To know that bullet(s) will go through taking flesh, shards of bone, spattering it on the wall behind the victom,the blow back will spray blood, flesh and bone back in your face!!! (If you were to shoot and kill, you will, be arristed, go to jail, loose your job, pay thousands & thousands to a lawer, probly be in prison for the of your life, you say your 20 years old???? So much to react to in a split second. I didn't say think cause there's no time for thinking!!!!!! GunsLot Guys are telling you "like it is". The Guys will direct you on a correct path, don't vere off that path keep it in sight, don't go to jail for noght!! (nothing)

that conceal carry is not for me, I think I will just collect guns,enter local tournaments and practice my shooting skills. To answer lyles question if you want to call it a question,I have taken a few animals lives. But each life I took I did eat the animal like turkey for example. Anyways conceal carry is out but I dont think its against the law to carry on your own property is it? Anyways I will not,repeat will not be conceal carring. I reserve the right to change me mind in the future when i am older and wiser. You guys gave me a lot of advice and I will take it. Thak ya thank ya very much.

Snake and CC debate

carrying a weapon is a serious responsibility and you NEVER want to unholster that weapon unless it is at the range, in the woods shooting or if you MUST save a life by taking one.

The rule of thumb I use is that I will only draw my weapon .75 seconds before I fire it. Pointing your weapon to warn or intimidate a person is not the right move. If you must defend yourself, kill the offender and make sure only to do so when you are justified. If the idiot you shoot lives, he will sue you for whatever he can... After all we are living in America, the land of the free to sue anyone for anything just to make a quick buck....

Just my humble honest opinion....

I don't know what the charge is here in MO yet, but in AZ, pointing a weapon was basically the same as aggravated assault. So when I have reached a point at which that's okay, the weapon comes out. If a group of three or four hardheads makes gestures or aggressive postures or acts toward me and I can't leave (I'm with my wife and kid and they's coming toward us from across a street, have the path blocked, etc...), then the weapon will come out. Not to intimidate, of course, but to inform them of my intentions and capability of defending me and mine.

I'm sure there are better examples, but this is the one I came up with a few beers in, so CUT ME SOME SLACK!!!! What? I don't know. Nevermind.
