    You cannot use the "Ted Kennedy killed more people than my guns" joke.

    Just add "Since I've owned it" in really small letters (or under your breath). ;)

    I actually said that once, to a friend of mine... then thought for a minute, and said, errr... maybe those mosin nagants killed a few germans... and that other one could have killed germans under the kaiser, under hitler, finns, and russians. (a 1915 New England Westinghouse production mosin nagant that was delivered and, at some point, captured by the finns and restocked with that really nice tigerstripe wood.) My friend at least found it funny, if not convincing.

    To split hairs, they weren’t your guns when they were used to kill people.

    You can use that argument if they are French or Italian firearms.

    Just because they're surplus doesn't mean they've killed anything.

    They got a much better chance though, than that NIB 870.

    "...killed more people than my guns..." Ahem! Your guns killed nobody. They're inanimate objects.

    Now, for my serious answer...

    They are more addictive than drugs :D

    Aint that the truth! I spent 300 bucks on ammo this past weekend for my M1 without blinking. I wouldn't spend 300 bucks at one time on ANYTHING that didn't involve bang-sticks.

    I believe that I found a stat somewhere about how 99% of guns have killed less people than Ted Kennedy. (it sounds resonable but I'm not sure)

    Make sure you buy un-fired Mil-Surps (like some of the Yugo 59/66 SKS models), and you are still good with the Ted "Where are my pants, my car, and my secretary?" Kennedy line... :evil: :evil: :evil: :D

    There is another downside; you need a bigger safe. :D
