(Gun nuts, that is...)

This morning on the way to work, I decided to stop and clean out the bed of the truck. I had a bucket of berass that has been in the bed for a while....mostly .38 and .45, but some .40 and 9mm, too. Anyway, there were several hundred steel 'wolf' cases mixed in with it....and it had gotten rained in, so it was nice and rusty. I decided to throw it away.

The owner of the car wash where I stopped was doing his saturday-morning maintenance. I carried the bucket of brass (probably 2500-3500 pieces) to the dumpster as he was emptying the trash cans.

Anyway, it was one of those chest-high dumpsters. I think the guy wanted the bucket.....he emptied it out, and was shocked at the brass. I came back with anothert load of odds/ends/garbage from the bed of the truck. He asked me if I shot much. 'Yeah, some'.

Anyway...a few minutes later, I'm spraying the bed of the truck out (coupla hundred empty cases rolling around in there weren't helping the paint....) and the guy comes by to talk.

First, he asked if I was a cop. I explained that I wasn't....some people hunt, fish, golf, drink, gamble, and so on, but shooting was my main hobby.

Anyway, he tells me about his pistol he shoots some (some sort of .22) and asked me a few questions, then went on about his business.

Nice enough guy....but it made me think:

We're not like 'them'.

He suggested I must be a good shot.

Me?

I hit what I'm aiming at.....but I'm no IDPA whiz or highpower king.

But it occurred to me....how much trigger time do I have, compared to the average soccer mom, or even the average 'I'm tough because I was born in the country' redneck?

I probably shot more pistol ammo this morning, before breakfast, than most people shoot in a year.

And I'm not a high-volume shooter by this site's standards.

Sure, I burn enough ammo in a year to pay for my next three planned firearms purchases......but I'm a lightweight by the 'gun culture' standard.

If the muslims/russians/martians/zombies ever invade......guys, it's gonna be interesting.

The average citizen is NOT PREPARED for anything worse than a flat tire.




Just my $0.02.....

stop hijacking my thread.

I'm not 'extreme'.

It's not my fault if the soccer moms can't shoot.

As for the .45 brass....well, I don't normally throw it away. This was just really messy.

I am always being told by my friends that I am paranoid because I carry and handgun on me and have a loaded shotgun behind the seat of my truck. My handgun goes everywhere I go (unless it is to a bar or other places that serves drinks)

I have a backpack of survival goodies that might come in handy (knives, water filter spare compass, ect) A lot of people think I am a loon for having what I have. Compaired to most arfcommers I am a lightweight at best. However, I always want to be prepaired for the worst and I constantly hope for the best. Being a "gun nut" is a hobbie that may end up saving your life.

we are different in a way. we want to be prepared and that means that when theres a blackout i have candles and batteries. i can do the basics to stabilize a injury with stuff that is around. if there is a crisis that requires me to have a weapon, i have one and know how to use it too.

i will probably be afraid if the situation ever came to that but i will deal with my fear and know that i am ready and able. thats the heck of a lot more than i can say say for most people.

There's some truth to this. A friend of the family (he and my dad are good friends and his stepson was my childhood best friend) is a "gun person." He has an AR among a few other firearms. When he goes shooting, he'll bring one box of ammunition. When he buys ammunition, he'll purchase a box or two. Occasionally he'll go halfsies on a case, but that is pretty rare.

When I showed him my vault and its contents, he nearly had a stroke. Funny thing is, probably 50-75% of the people on this board have more firearms than I do (11). As far as ammunition goes, I'm sure I have more than 75% of the people here, but that still leaves alot of people with more.

I gotta tell you, I think there is a pretty sizable pool of pent-up rage in this country over terrorism. Should something ever happen around here, I think a majority of sheeple would either be killed off immediately, roll over and play dead, give up, or run for their lives with no thought ever, EVER, of making a stand. That's pathetic, but atleast it's no secret, hence we will not be surprised when it goes down. Once you cut away the fat, that rage I mentioned earlier, once unleashed, will wind up cutting a wide swath of death and destruction upon its target.

Make absolutely no mistake about it; in ten-to-twenty years or so this place will be a powder keg like the United States has never seen. Ever.
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 7:55:52 AM EST
Good post. I guess the majority of us here ARE different. I wan't really that much into it before I started here, just a little browsing as a guest at first, I rarely had more than a box or two of ammo for each of my hunting rifles and my .45, then I got the itch. I signed up here in October, then would up being a paying member in January, this morning I shot nearly 400 rounds, not counting the .22. It's bad here.

+1

Judging by my personal experience alone, I helped 9 people change tires on the roads last year. NINE. I saw that they had no idea what they were doing, so I asked if they needed help.

I did get one girls phone number...

Anyway.

I do agree with you arowneragain, people at my college (private university, middle of the road in terms of politics), a lot of them are SHOCKED that I own an AR. Among many other firearms... They always ask if I hunt. I explain to them that I like to bow hunt, etc, sometimes I hunt with a rifle, but I just like to shoot, either have fun, or compete. Some get it, some don't. It's amazing how many people I am going to take shooting again this spring (so far 15 have expressed interest). I took a huge group of people last spring, and last fall, and now even more people want to go.

I think it's because they never had the opportunity, never joined any clubs or anything, no one in their family had guns, so they never went shooting.

A few of the same people I took shooting last year are coming out again, with their own guns.

I firmly believe that given a chance, 85% of the never-shot-a-gun-before population will jump at the opportunity.

The rest of them are the loud mouth soccer mom types that hate guns.

It's odd how firearms are on tv and in the movies so much, but people never go out there and actually shoot them. They just watch. If they ever get some motivation, like "hey I'm going shooting, would you like to come?" They'll just about shit themselves with happiness.

At least that's my experience.

'bout 2 months ago, I was killing time before school, was at the convenience store, a girl came in w/ a flat tire, looking to borrow a jack.

I changed her tire for her, while a whole gossip of college-aged women stood around offering useful advice like 'you look cold...can I get you some earmuffs?' and 'oh gosh, I've gotta call XXXX and tell 'em we had a flat, they'll never beleive it. '.

I changed the tire and left as fast as I could, freshly reminded why the world is going to collapse.....

Ahhhhhhh, gotcha. It amazes me the number of people who have never changed a tire (wheel really). I guess I have had bad luck, but I have changed out to my spare wheel many times. And the first time I got a flat, as a teenager, I didn't even stop to think that I should call someone to change it for me. There was a wheel, jack, and lug wrench in my trunk and I just went to work.

Now I talk to people, "men" even, who have no idea how to put their spare wheel on, and I am so disappointed that I don't know what to say.

I feel bad when I have at least less than 500 rounds of ammo on hand. I just dont feel like shooting as much as I should and burn up all my damn ammo.

Discuss.




Shoot, the average citizen doesn't even know HOW to change a flat tire! My mom hit a nail that killed the tire, I happened to be w/her. I TRIED to change the tire FOR HER, (she's my MOM!) but she didn't want me to, because all that was THERE was a "donut" tire. Apparently, she had BAD luck w/those in the past. So she called dad, who called AAA, then showed up RIGHT before THEY did. ALL THEY did was what _I_ wanted to do, change the flat w/the donut!

DAD can do both (shoot and change a flat) but w/AAA why bother (he's over 60, anyway)... still.... I'd've had it already changed and we'd have been 1/2 way home by the time AAA got there. (About 10-15 minutes)

And I'm not SO MUCH a "gun nut" as I am a "gun rights nut" but I still usually shoot at LEAST 100 minimum to 300 rounds/month, unless I'm REALLY REALLY busy, or not feeling well. I do NOT think people are odd who have 20,000+ rounds for their firearms, but that they are "practical" ... if they do not "rotate" the ammo - THEN I DO think they are weird Also I think they are a bit "odd" if they have less than 5000 rounds.

I'm just glad I found this site For allot of reasons, but, mostly I know I'm not alone in the world. The answer is yes...We are different. Unlike the general populous (ie..sheeple) we don't expect the .gov to cradle to grave us and have'nt lost the warrior spirit that has made this country the envy of the world. The femininizing of the American male and the fear of political correctness(being branded a racist, biggot, homophobe ect...) being shoved down everyones throat. Every time you turn around someone is bashing your way of life or making it against the law to do said things, like gun laws, restrictions on fishing/hunting, smoking, drinking, net-ban, Confererate Battle Flags and Monuments, All Northern European/American traditions, Christmas , God, Oh the list goes on and so could I.
I own a bar, and believe me there are allot of people that don't have a f#cking clue. They like to talk shit but that''s about it. I go shooting at least 3 times a week now ( I miss the days I could shoot every day ) I train with the same intensity I did as a young Marine Rifleman and I live for the smell of burnt powder

Can't you just STAY gone ??

You just never know when to quit with this stupid 'psychoanalyzing' bullshit of yours, do you...

If you do not know the answer then you are not one of us.

I never did well with the clique mentality. I prefer to keep my individuality and independence of thought, thank you. But, if that is your thing to feel like you belong, then who am I to criticize.




Translated : I act like a retard on a regular basis here, and most likely in person as well. For this reason, I probably have few or no friends that want me around or can tolerate me for more than short periods of time. I have managed to convince myself I'm just "more specialer" than everybody else to make me feel better about being a weirdo stalker outcast.





Jeffrey Dahmer had "individuality and independance of thought"........ I'll bet he thought he was cool too.

I don't know about being extreme , but I do know
that when I see the typical news story of the guy
they caught with an " arsenal " in his home .

I cant help but think what they would say if
it were my home on the screen

It would be interesting to see a demographic of ARFcom users.

I think my sig line covers this.

And true I'm a bit hardcore since I've spent a few $1000 on high volume casting equipment to make up my subgun ammo in bulk.

( not everyone keeps a spare half ton pile of lead ingots in case they want to do a casting marathon...)
