  1. Yesterday my uncle stopped by to work on his car. While we were working, I noticed my grandpa's old .22 in his trunk. I commented on it and picked it up and he was like "oh yeah, you can have that, I don't really do anything with it anyway and I can't take care of it". I was pretty happy, I wanted it but I didn't want to bring it up. My uncle had sanded the stock down ages ago but never refinished it, so my buddy grabbed some stain and polyeurethene and refinished it. I got the metal cleaned up as best I could, looks a lot better. Now all it needs is a magazine.

    It is a Mossberg 350KA, made in the late 1950s until the middle of the 1980s. It's pretty over-engineered for a .22, built way tougher than it'd ever need to be.

    My AR-15 upper receiver arrived today, it is a Del-Ton A3 with M4 feed ramps, 16" chrome-lined barrel, mid-length gas system. Pinned and welded (fucking NY) Yankee Hill Machine muzzle brake with "agressive end". The carrying handle is from DPMS. The lower receiver is Aero Precision, the lower receiver parts kit I used was from DPMS and the A2 stock assembly (stock, tube, buffer) is from Model 1 Sales. It seems like it will be a really fun gun.

    And it continues to grow ;-P

      I wish I had a collection like that - jealous :(

      Australias gun laws are ridiculous.

      As are the United Kingdom's. Admittedly I'm not really up to date with the exact laws we have but I wouldn't be surprised if there was now some rule against owning a .177 air gun without a permit that required a hundred signatures from solicitors and doctors and government workers to get hold of.

      Every household in the world has a collection of deadly stabbing weapons in their kitchens that could end someone's life if put in the wrong hands. Just a thought.

      Faced with that obvious fact, anti-gun pussies will retort that "knives have other peaceful uses, while guns are used only to kill people", and you'd be back to square zero.

      Of course, said pussies have no problem (or at least, don't have the cojones to protest about it) with guns being in the hand of individuals worthy -apparently- of infinite trust and gifted with absolutely infallible and reasonable judgment, like trigger-happy cops, military, or simply criminals who don't give two shits about your gun laws (and would simply pistol-whip said pussies to a pulp anyway). They only lash out against legal ownership, which may I add, only dictatorships restrict or ban completely.

      Anyway, especially in the case of the USA vs the UK, gun ownership has a classist background to it: in typical British classist and imperial style, gun ownership was the privilege of the nobles, the royalty and of course their state-appointed henchmen. Hell, it was even punishable by death to hunt some game to feed your family, if you were not a Duke owning your own fucking game reserves!

      The people of the USA, wanting to start with a "clean slate" and democratic grassroots approach instead, extended this privilege to be a RIGHT for every proud USA citizen. No matter how much I criticize the USA for other issues, that's one thing I sincerely admire about it. And don't forget, you can have both legal gun ownership AND a lack of rampant gun crime, as they manged to do in Canada, kinda combining the best of both worlds.

      Did you also get a borrowed gun and a blue gun?

      Does this mean you're getting married...to your guns?
