    Post general firearms threads in the Lounge. If the subject is social and contentious - post in GD. If the subject is political - post in Politics.

    Hopefully the Gun Forums will be restored soon.

    At least I spread the cans of ammo around so she doesn't know how much I have.
    LOL Gator, I have been on my husband cause I want him to buy MORE guns & ammo. Lost count on how many we have. Cant ever have too many??

    I got a feeling any "military style" rifles or "high capacity" handguns (per gun banners definitions) and ammo will all realize better retnoru n investment from right now to next year this time than the stock market.

    I intend to order another 10-20 K rounds in various calibers. Oh, and magazines like those 100 round drums will go up. Well hell, I got a LOT of money not in the market right now might as well invest it somewhere :D

    I love guns. :D

    I'm partial to single action revolvers.

    I'm trying to get the wife to a range so that she can overcome her fear of guns (she's a Brit). She intellectually understands the need to have them, but she's never been around them and isn't comfortable handling them. I want to pick up a Ruger .22 target pistol to familiarize her and eventually get my daughters shooting, but that's going to be a longterm project.

    That's a good start with a .22. I started my wife on a Ruger Single Six in .22 and now she'll blast away with just about any caliber.

    It's all in how you start. The current crop of Ruger .22 semi-autos is really nice.

    Those are a great little pistol for beginners aren't they? I'm building my wife a target AR now. Fortunately I bought all the bits and pieces many months ago and I've been too busy to assemble it. Be careful you might create a "gun nut" and you know it's expensive enough with only one in the house.

    I'll be happy to know that she can protect herself and the girls when I'm away.
    We have a Small Arms Readiness Group team attached to us to train the incoming units, and those guys are amazing (several of them wear President's Hundred tabs for rifle or pistol). I'm working with them to set up a family range one of these weekends between BCT deployments. Unfortunately, FT Hood's ranges aren't really conducive to anything other than the army's qualification standards, but they are free.
