There have been a lot of threads regarding what weapons and firearms were favored by us Viners. Well, I wanna know who actually owns a firearm. If you own one, tell us what kind it is, how much you paid for it, and why you bought it. Post a picture if you can.

Some Viners already know what my favorite firearm is. So, yeah. I bought a Romanian-made AK-47 1971 for $500. I was taking my homeboy to the gun shop nearby so he could buy himself a MAC 11. I wasn't gonna buy anything, but when I say that AK-47, I coudn't get past that pricetag. The gunsmiths told me that it was the last AK-47 they had, and that they weren't getting anymore because things regarding NATO (weapons can't distributed to the USA from countries in NATO next year) or something. Also, there are gonna be some rules/laws set on assault weapons next year, and those that already have them would be exempt or grandfathered. So, I took initiative and bought it. I said 'The hell with layaway!' I mainly bought it for protection. Too many people get home invaded and robbed at gunpoint these days because of the economy. If low-lifes wanna eat really bad, they'll take whatever they can from someone who's a lot more fortunate than them. Gotta be prepared, because you never know when someone may try to get you. Better now than later or never....

Mine looks a lot like this, even with the shoulder strap. The only difference is the clip. Mine has a 30-round clip, instead of a 20-round clip (the one in the picture.)

I have my great uncle's STG 44 from when he served in the German Army during world war 2. He taught me how to clean it and service it so it could still be useful if trouble arises. Here's a pick of a similiar one:

The first of its kind, the original assault rifle.

I have a .22 for target shooting and hunting.

And a training M16 (airsoft) that shoots 430 fps (My .22 shoots 1000 fps).

Exactly. People in the States are extremely fixated of firearms.

You just did, me! :D

I have a friend that owns an MP5, AK-47, AK-47 Custom Shotgun, AK-47 Custom Handgun, AR-15, and numerous handguns. (The assault rifles are all semi automatic only, this is the U.S., you know.)

Hum.....Well here in Texas we hunt. Most of the people I know have a gun of some sorts. I live in a pretty upscale area so no people don't really have them for self defense that much. When I travel, I always carry a gun. We have Concealed Handgun Licenses.

I have an antique rifle - a model 1912 7mm Mauser bolt-action rifle. I can consistently hit those tiny sausage cans at 200 yards with it.

If you don't live in the U.S., then you wouldn't understand.  Crime is crazy out here, and people need to protect themselves. All I know is that I'm not about to let someone kick in my door and cause trouble in my house. I have one life, and I'm gonna live it.

True, but if you want them fully automatic, you gotta let the ATF do a background check for $200. If approved, you get an ATF license to carry a fully automatic weapon. However, I don't see the use for weapon to be fully auto, anyway.

I'm getting a Taurus 1911 Colt .45 pistol next year. So, this license will come in handy when I travel between Georgia and Florida. :)
