It really wasn't that bad? I sold my Kimber 1911 before I moved to Hawaii so I would have to deal with the hassle. My gf hates guns though so I probably would have gotten rid of it anyway.

You are a man of good taste.

My son-in-law tells me that a modern Glock is lighter, much easier to disassemble, and of course it has a substantially higher capacity. But I figure if seven rounds from a .45 won’t work I’m toast anyway. 

You would hate polymer frame pistols.

Fudd used a magic double barreled shotgun that seemed to never have to be reloaded but at the cost of never being able to hit his target.

Gunna need @Whats Up Doc to give his expertise here.

My first rifle was a Winchester pump-action .22.

I've owned a few single shot .22's, a pump-action .22 and few semi auto .22's over the year all in that $150 to $220 range.  Keeping giving them away to my younger cousins and friends.

Want a gun for small game to keep as a lifer and hand down to my own kids if I ever have any.  The Remington 572 fits that perfectly.

It was easy. Went to county sheriff office, had the guns looked at and a background check. Took about 15 minutes

When I was 16 I traded that Winchester and $50 for a Ruger 10/22 that I still have to this day.

I have a security door and a pit bull that hates strangers. Statistically, that is better home protection than a gun. 

If the anti immigration fervor continues to grow and we get ICE sweeps in my area, I may buy a shotgun.

The rise of the far right militias its why I thought of buying another.  Not a lot of that in Hawaii though

This post demonstrates a lack of awareness and understanding of fundamental gun safety. 

Then you simply don’t know gun safety. An unloaded gun with the safety on locked away in a steel gun safe is as safe as it gets. If you think that’s wrong, go get your money back from the fool that taught you wrong.

That’s kinda what I figured. 

FWIW I don't like them either. I don't mind the extra weight of a steel frame and in larger and/or more snappy calibers it helps reduce recoil to keep your target sighted.

First off this is what you said:

Ahhhhh, it’s not a big deal if it ain’t loaded and the safety is on. If there are any kids around at all, they should be in a locked gun safe, period. 

Wrong, dipshit.

RULE #1: ALWAYS TREAT A FIREARM AS IF IT'S LOADED.

Full stop. As you fail Rule #1 miserably, I see no need to proceed to Rule #2. 

Sorry to publicly neuter you in front of a bunch of dudes.

We have a stealthy cat that will use his mad ninja skills to weave between your legs and trip you.

Even if the gun is not loaded, and you know that.  Posting pictures on social media of you keeping guns as "display" pieces is dumb AF.  Hanging up your tool for show is serious small dick energy and posting that on social media just makes you a target.  Post you are out of town for vacation?  Who knows what "friend" on facebook will see that as an easy opportunity to robe you.

Guns belong in safes.  Especially if you have kids.  A home defense gun in the bedroom is fine too.  I keep mine in an area close to my bed that nobody would ever find unless they ripped the room apart but can access in seconds.

My gun collection is modest.  I have a 30/30 for hunting, a 20 gauge for birds, two hand guns (Ruger blackhawk and Ruger LCR).

Knives and swords give me bigger boners to be honest.  Just got a boar spear for Christmas, have several swords, several bowies and about a half dozen hawks for throwing.

A million likes.

Part of the weaps course I used to deliver to LEAs involved having LEOs clear and make safe both a semi-automatic and a pump-action shotty. And there was always more than one who f*cked it up.

I cringe whenever I see someone - in a gun store or elsewhere - carelessly handle a firearm because they "know it's unloaded."

Which was in response to my comment that it was unsafe for her to keep a handgun sitting on the edge of the shelf. Which it is if you understand and practice the four cardinal rules of gun safety (see: Rule #1).
