    So I go to the shooting range once in a while..
    I really want to get a rifle, 12 gauge pump action shotgun, a short barrel .410, a .22 browning or sig sauer, and .40 or .44 cal something..

    I currently only have a crossman .177 snap barrel spring action pellet gun 450fps
    What do you guys have?

    I just watched the history of the guns with Jeremy Clarkson.
    I must be getting old cause I love documentaries now.

    I have never cared about guns. For me, they exist in a fantasy world that is video games and news broadcasts and that is fine with me.

    Plus, they are illegal in Japan.

    quite the wish list IMPUL. I've got a few, and the urge to buy more is great. Once you get started, its hard to stop. I know a guy who has well over a hundred guns. He makes his own ammo and everything. I think my next purchase will be a Norinco M305, which is a well made knock off of the M14 or M1A system. I'm a lefty, so I only buy semi autos.
    A word of caution though, feeding anything that chambers a .40 will get very expensive very quickly. I'd stick to the .22 or go with 9mm. If you want a good 12 gauge, both the rem. 870 or a Mossberg 590 are superb and well priced.

    Not much of a gun guy myself.

    I do have a Crossman pump action bb/pellet gun that I bought when I was about 12.

    I also have a dessert eagle replica BB gun that I got from a grade 5 student for an end of the year present (I taught in a pretty redneck town).

    Both of these rarely get used as I live in town and have no place to shoot.

    Mmmm M14 's ... Mossbergs my type of shotty
    The large cal is more for show like a center pics of the collection..
    I know it's alot more powder etc.. And bigger recoil..
    .22 is the one I'd use frequently at the range..
    I would deffinitely make my own bullets with a press... Especially the shot gun shells.
    The .22's I might just buy them bulk through the range...
    9mm are cool but I'd be on my own for bullets and the hoodlums use them ...
    So I try to stay away from common street guns like 9mm .32/.357 revolvers etc.
    soo ya you got a pic of that one your about to get?

    Pinecrest is indoor 50yd range any handguns allowed.
    I use the ranges on new shooter nights until I get my permit.
    Which I'm delaying because it looks to fun and ill spend way to much.
    I mean look at my wish list already ... I'm not even licensed yet.
    I would go "hunting" ... But I definition would be going up north and shooting cans and pissing off real hunters cause I'm constantly shooting nothing..

    I'm jealous of all the wilderness in bc that wolf has ... And his range is so close ... He can pretty much walk out the door and into the bush...

    Thx DG for the forum link!

    To me they are tools. And I'd need different ones for different things.

    Hand guns.. Collection/range
    Rifle.. Shooting stuff at distance 100yds to 150yrds
    Shot gun.. Who doesn't want a shot gun?
    .410 short barrel ... Anyone seen "chopper" nuff said its just a cool gun.

    I found this helpful.. It quick and to the point.


    I think maybe ill do it this march with tax refund as I should have enough for that and nistune.


    Go for my PAL,RPAL and ATT all on one weekend then upgrade my outdoorsmen card to H1
    And wait for my license!

    Time to start reading the gun forums for sale section..

    yeah, I want it to look like this.

    The Norinco comes with a cheap synthetic stock, which I'll swap out for a Boyd's Heartwood walnut one.

    In response to your earlier question, here's a few shots of my (ever growing) collection;

    [​IMG]
    bought from frontier firearms used. never had a jam, formerly ex west German police issue Walther P1

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    picked this one up from the Kamloops gun show.M1 Carbine professionally converted to non-restricted by welding a barrel extension to the end of the muzzle.

    ...and here's a tapco vomited SKS I put together.

    dg is right of course. You will need to complete the Possession and Acquisition(PAL) Exam, and I f you want to hunt you will need your CORE as well.
    I took the restricted test, but IMO its not worth it. I had to jump through so many hoops to get a pistol, It's ridiculous. At all times you need to be a member of a shooting range, and you will also need to apply for an authorization to transport permit. I've taken it to the range maybe a half dozen times since I bought it. Things to consider I guess, but if you're hell-bent on getting one, by all means go for it. They are fun to shoot.

    One day I'll get my PAL. I keep telling myself to, and I just never seem to get around to it. I know my father in law has some stuff he doesn't want anymore...

    That poll kinda sucks, what if you have rifles, shotguns, and antiques, lol I'm a redneck!

    I have a few shotguns, 12 gauge, 16 gauge and a very old .410. A couple .22's and of course big rifles. An older .30-30 cowboy action, pump .30-06, and my favorite is a Sako 85 in .270.

    I've got my PAL and Hunter Safety, and a gun safe in the garage, but all I have in it is a Gamo Silent Stalker .22 air rifle, 950ft/s that I bought to deal with rabbits in my yard. I'm in the city and need something "discreet", and this thing isn't as quite as I was hoping for. The scope that came with it was absolute garbage and ran out of adjustment before I could get the thing dialed in, so I bought a red/green dot sight off DealExtreme, but I haven't got it mounted and sighted yet.

    I'd like to pick up a shotgun and get into waterfoul hunting, and a .22 for gopher hunting and stuff like that. Can't see myself getting into big game hunting anytime soon, although my father in law is big into that stuff (deer, elk, moose) and owns land that borders Riding Mountain National Park, so down the road who knows.

    I have a friend and his dad who collect them....they've got a crazy collection, and I've gone to the range with them a number of times (I don't have any licenses myself)...want to get my license someday and get a WWII era rifle of some sort though. Friend of mine has an authentic WWII Lee Enfield and being a history buff with a history degree, I wouldn't mind having one either, or a K98 or Mosin Nagant or MAS-MLE 36 or some such! :)

    It's worth it just to get your PAL, in case you come across a deal, or something you JUST have to have. Thats what happened to me with the SKS.

    Yeah, I intend to at some point. Where'd you get the SKS? I saw Marstar had some awhile back.

    Its worth it to get your PAL just so you have it before they go and make it harder to get!

    I got them both at Wholesale Sports. I looked at the Marstar ones, but I like the idea of seeing and handling it in person first.
