    "i don't want you messing with big calibers like .38's or .357's" - grampa (ok, .357 is a bit heavy, but he's going to have a heart attack when he finds out i'm getting a GP-100 .357 as my first pistol...and a .30-06 as my first rifle...)

    "that pistol makes a cute sound" - my aunt, when i was firing a .22 revo

    "Clockwise. CLOCKWISE! do you know which way clockwise is?!?" - grampa, as i was fiddling with his 20g. shotgun trying to get the barrel back into the reciever after a cleaning.(hey, it wouldn't turn...)

    Lol.

    I remember when i went with my parents to pick out my first rifle, i was looking at the mini 14. My mom asked "Why do you need that much power?" I replied, "Cuase its fun, just like people by fast cars and drive em around, you never really need to go over 70 anyways buyt people buy cars that can go 200."

    She let my get the gun :)

    Then the day after that i recieved a mauser as a gift :cool: hmmm which is more powerful .223 or 8mm :p

    "I'm not sure where my shots went, but someone who can't shoot for beans filled my target full of holes!" -- me

    "I'd like to add a vertical string compensator to my order, please." -- me

    "That pen is about .38 caliber. Use it to punch holes in your target where they out to be." -- dad

    When my Father was dying He told me that He wanted me to have His gun. I had never seen it so I did not know what type He had. He was concerned that I not get the wrong ammo for it because it took special bullets. I told him not to worry, the caliber designation was marked on the barrel. He said ok but these were special bullets.

    What type of bullet is it, I said. He told me it was a 38. I said no problem, Dad, there are lots of 38s and I will find the right one. There are 38 S&W, 38 long, 38 super, 38 special.... THATS IT! he said 38 special!

    Dad, do you have any bullets for this gun, I asked. No He said, the lady at the store wanted to sell me 50 and I only needed 6!

    That was Dad. When I look at that gun to this day (turns out it was a Colt Agent), it still brings a tear to my eye.

    I was with a non-shooting friend at gun range along with myself and another friend who shoots.

    non-shooting friend: "what's that gun for?" *pointing to a friend's Remington 870 as friend was firing it*
    me: "its for home defense"
    non-shooting friend: what's -that- gun for?" *pointing to my converted, mag-fed assault Saiga-12 shotgun with a mess of shells strewn on the shooting bench and my other friend's loaded SKS*
    me with :D : "That? That's for home offense!"

    My responses to those who give me a hard time about owning firearms and supporting the second amendment.

    1) Your side; which has no guns, wants to forcefully remove guns from those who do? That's like trying to prod a rattlesnake into being friendly.

    2) Because my toys are protected by the Constitution of the United States! Care to justify your drug habit??

    Oh and a couple from the range.

    My friend: "9mm is .45 set for stun."

    Me: "Is that right? Well why don't you get downrange and let me stun you."

    During a "hostage" scenario using IPSC targets:

    My Co-Instructor to my Girlfriend: "You're not supposed to hit the no-shoot targets."

    Me: "She was just removing the hostage from the equation."

    I remember the first time my dad and I went shooting. :rolleyes:

    "Keep your G*D-D*MNED FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER! I swear, we'll pack up and go home this instant! I am NOT joking around here, and neither should you!"






    Dad: *sighs heavily* "All right..."

    :D

    "...She let my get the gun..." Mom should have smacked you for buying an over priced, inaccurate, piece of junk.
    "...recieved a Mauser as a gift..." See? Mom knew you need a rifle that would shoot well.

    Monday at the range

    My buddy after firing 10 rounds at 50 yards from his Model 1890 Winchester in .22 long:

    "Well, whats that look like, about a 4" group?"

    Me looking through spotting scope:

    "Welllll...more like an 8" group...

    But if you take a couple away its a 5" group....

    And if you only count the 2 in the ten ring, its a 1/2" group!"

    Me, "H#LL Yes".

    Her," I didn't know you had a gun with you"

    Me, "That's why they're called concealed weapons"...

    My Neighbor: "What's that for?" pointing at my SKS

    Me: "Shootin' stuff."

    My Neighbor: "Why?"

    Me: " 'cause just throwing the bullets doesn't seem to work that well :D "

    My Drill Seargent back in Basic training. He was yelling at a private who wasn't paying attention to where the barrel was pointing

    "Private! You damn well better have your life insurance paid up, 'cause if you point that damn weapon at me again, I'm gonna kill ya."

    Ahh... there was nothing like the extremely wide range of firearms knowledge of people in basic training. It ranged from a guy who was part of the "President's Hundred" shooting team, who was just trying to get an MOS qualification all the way down to the guy who didn't understand that bullets actually run out and kept thinking his rifle was broken. (he watched too many movies where they had the "infinite capacity" magazines)

    From my father:
    Those are the four rules, here are two more......
    1) A lawyer with a maimed client is much more dangerous to you than a lawyer with a dead client.
    2) Don't ever do anything with a gun because you have seen it done on TV. Here he was talking about not whipping revolvers or double barrel shotguns open and closed, I know because I had to ask for clarification. I remember this vividly, I was six, sitting on his lap, and it was the first time anyone ever talked to me like I was an adult.

    Overheard this one a gunshop last week...

    A man was holding a beretta 92 that a salesperson was showing to him. The man said "I don't know if I really want one of these, they train people in techniques to disarm this kind of gun by pressing this button and flipping this lever, and you are left holding nothing but the frame"
