You're right, why take the chance. It's best not to give away your position.
Yeah, I used to hurl some lead downrange! My shoulder was just recovering from the week before after putting 50 rounds of .30-06 and 50 rounds of 12 gauge through paper. It took all my will power not to flinch before pulling the trigger in anticipation of the pain that was to follow! Those were the days!
It's easy to understand. Most of the folks who restrict our rights believe in that guy Marx. They do everything in their power to disarm us, make us depend on them, the government for protection and ultimately everything else. Those that don't read the book but still want to take away our gun rights, Communists had their own name for them, "usefull idiots".
Yeah, been there done that (times a bunch!). I feel your pain my son, but rest in comfort of the knowledge that you will be rewarded for your suffering.
100 rd.s of pistol fodder? that don't last an hour. Aimed, controlled, fire doesn't mean slow fire.
They may not really believe in Marx, but they are affraid of thier own shadows and, somehow, believe that if they can get everybody to throw down thier clubs, no one will bludgen them. Nice thoughts, but the only way to be assured that the other guy will throw down his club, is usually to stick a loaded gun in his face. The world would be a nicer place if nobody had, or had the need for, weapons, but it just ain't gonna happen with humans arround (also, it would be a might boring too).
The most convicted (no, not jail time, committed to thier beliefs) 'anti-war' folks that I know are vets and serving professional soldiers and Marines (those who will first feel, or have already felt, the brunt of war. But, they also know the necessity of being prepared for it.
Edit: Sorry Swathy, I imagine that probablly goes for swabies and Squids too (notice that I capitalized Squids?)
The most adamant anti-gunners I know, and know of, are either scared of guns and have never held one, or seeking the power of public office where they can run our lives for us. Think about it.
End of sermon, my children. We will now sing hymn #.303
Y'all have a great one!
