With the current nuttery, are your friends who squandered/procrastinated the last 4 years (since the ban expired) trying to get you to sell one of your "evil" guns to them (at a discount of course)?

not friends, because friends don't know what I have. But my brother-in-law and sister asked, fortunately we were all able to jump on a group buy for AR-15 lowers.

They probably would not even get half way through the offer before I was rolling on the floor laughing!

nope, but that might be because they know i hold on to my stuff, especially the "good" stuff.

No. They also know better than to ask, and/or don't know what I have, which I wouldn't sell anyway.

I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to say here. Please try to use proper grammar when posting to help us all out.

Just took a friend to the range today for his first time shooting. It was kinda funny, he new I like to shoot from a mutual friend so he called me the other day and asked me all kinds of stupid questions then finally just blurted out "Can I shoot one of your guns?"

So we went to the range and I started him on a Ruger Super Six .22lr... After a 1/2 hour of shooting that I introduced him to my 45 Vaquero's, my 1911, my .44 Redhawk and 92 carbine...

Next time he wants to rent a few guns including a glock and H&K...

Think we've got another convert... :)

all of my friends know better than to ask, but they are asking where they can get one of their own.

They are available locally, but online they are sold out.

Nope. Most don't even know I own any guns. Oh you said "frineds", yes they know and they know where the store is. I can usually point them in the right direction if they want to ask.

I keep heckling my buddy to sell me his S+W 29 classic, but he knows I'm joking...sort of.

I haven't really had the problem myself, but then again most of my friends don't own firearms in the first place.

"Are friends nagging you to sell them your guns?"

Now, if they did that, would they really be your friends?

I have been trying to get a friend to sell me a Fox side by side shotgun for years now. One day I might get lucky. He did tell me if he died before me it was mine. Of coarse I am not wishing bad luck.:D:evil:

I recently had a co-worker try to get me to sell him a gun. I just told him that I don't sell my guns, period.

Actually, I've been buying from people who want to sell now before their guns become valueless (so they think) once they are banned... :)

Nope. I've somehow surrounded myself with people that are still under the impression that everything is going to get better over the next 4-8 years. Not quite sure how that happened.

That said, I do have a 5.5" Redhawk in .44mag for sale. Bites my finger something terrible...

No friends or relatives wanting to buy guns but wanting info on how to get a concealed license and just general newby gun questions.

In fact the wifes little sister,the ultra liberal, called last night saying she and hubby were getting their concealed licenses.

It seems they got robbed and just want to feel a bit safer.

I am sure they could have talked the badguy out of it if they had gotten to dialogue with him. Wink!

I've been jokingly trying to get my friend to sell me four or five out of his enormous stash of FAL mags for about a year now.

No, haven't had any thing of the sort. I've had several friends ask to go out shooting one of my weapons so that they can see if they like it. I've been the best commercial for SF XD's in the area. So far, every friend that has shot my Subcompact .40 has bought one. Thats 3 of them. Several of my friends have also bought small .38's after finding that they do handle well.

Why would any of your friends know you even have guns? Best course of action is to share with no one what you have.

well, i have to say that my shooting friends and acquaintences aren't really bugging me ... since they are equally or more whorish than i am when it comes to gear acquisitiveness. :eek:

i do get a lot of requests for ADVICE on what to buy ... what mags, what upper receivers, who to buy from, etc.

increasingly, we are putting our heads together to see what we have accumulated collectively, and are coming up with trade/swap ideas. i have to say this is kind of fun.

Yep, wanting to know where to get a deal. Arghhh.

They either don't know what I have, or know that I'd tell them to get their own, which they should've done this entire time.

No, but I've got family that is seeing the light and asking for some shooting instruction. I have a college-student niece, and her boyfriend, coming up for range time this Christmas break.

He's pre-med, so it's nice he hasn't drunk the AMA Kool-aid yet.

What guns?

Seriously though, my friends and I have such radically different taste in firearms, it'd never come up. Oh wait, you meant friends that don't already own firearms... Yeah, I don't have any of those. :)

Yea! That's pretty much the same thing I get all of the time.

I think I'll change all of the locks tomorrow.
