    I always would prefer a handgun in close quarters. I just wouldn't like having a longer barrel, even of a smaller shotgun. Also, if you know what you're doing, a .45 can do just as much damage as a shotgun at close range. But then again, aren't there lots of restrictions on handguns in the UK?

    I wish all my neighbors had a sawed off/pistol grip 12 pumper... That way if they miss their target they won't get me all the way acoss the street.

    Apartment living was even worse. A little ol 9 mil could kill someone a couple apartments away... Then again, I lived in nice neighborhoods where guys only beat their women and didn't shoot em

    When disturbed from a deep sleep by a group sneaking aboard, I don't want to be bothered by taking careful aim when a short barreled 12 ga. will take out the whole bunch at 20 feet. I wish I still had my Bullpup. They are collectors items now. I wish I still had my open ocean sailboat, too. Alas, the Bullpup and the boat went together.

    What a conversation this has become. I still prefer the handgun, however I have to remind myself that I'm in a small minority of people who go to the range on a regular basis, and am in fact very good with a handgun, whether it be a subcompact 22 or a 357 magnum revolver.

    Hi metguru,

    This has become an excellent conversation IMO............ please be aware that I am a boring old fart and that Steve R Jones is a "juvenile delinquent" in my pre-x286 mindset

    Wow, how did I miss that? Its 39 mm, not 33. That would lead me to believe that at least one of you two doesn't have very much 'real world' experience with such things.
    I believe that you are perfectly correct there, but I am going back almost 40 years, when I lived down South and attended Bisley Camp every week (Bisley is our version of Camp Perry).

    My mate Dave Hopcroft (Hoppy) was an avid collector of military rifles, and had acquired an "AK47", which he wanted me to try (I shared his interest, and was good enough to represent my country back then)........It was Russian and genuine WWII.

    He told me that the Russians made them when the USA came into WWII, so that their troops could use the US .30cal carbine round.............it used the exact same ammo as his M-1 carbine.

    I only tried it at 200x but the M-1 was a better weapon IMO. well, I could shoot better with it 'cos it didn't smell of commies

    Hell's teeth guys!!! this place is starting to be like a community again ?????????????

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    I refer to my AK as my WWIII gun.

    But its sad that the price of ammo has doubled since the new Pres took office...
    What does that have to do with the price of something that's totally legal and manufactured all the time?

    And also, personally, I prefer an AK to any of the M14 and M16 lines... I did like the M14, but when it comes to usability; An AK-47 is VERY hard to beat. Just in general.

    It has almost no kick, and yet the armor piercing rounds will make swiss cheese out of a brick building's walls. All around great gun.

    I don't like Hippies, but I can't totally hate them either; I mean, after all, Hippies were part of the Unix Culture in the very beginning, so I can't outright HATE them lol.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to HYBR|D again.

    speculation. All the hardcore conservatives thought Obama was going to be a socialist dictator, so they started stocking up on guns and ammo they'd never use, which is frustrating to someone like me, who puts those things to use.

    Before you say I'm hating on hardcore conservatives, you have to know that I'm pretty close to one myself, however, I like to add the fact that I have a brain. Obama is to wishy washy to do something like that. He never had any balls. He only had hope.

    Whilst it is not good form for moderators to give eachother points, I am only too happy to assist a fellow site member whose opinions I greatly respect.
