I was 14 or so and told my buddy to get a Hellfire thingy for his 10/22, so we could make it full auto like Uzi's...lol kids [uzi]

It was 1988. "Don't buy a POS Chinese M-14" I think they were about $300.00 retail back then. Come to think of it, that's still dumb advise.

Advice given to myself: "Hold off on buying that Class 3 gun, the prices are sure to drop"
Link Posted: 10/28/2001 3:23:33 PM EDT
those usa high caps will work in your mini 30 just like my factory hi cap 20 ruger mini 30's are good guns, At least if you buy a Ruger it will hold it's value unlike the AKs that are a dime a dozen

"that Dan Wesson package has three barrels and four cyls., you can have just about any gun you want! If I were you, I'd get it!" -or- "sure the forestock is small on that side by side, but it's big enough that you won't burn your hand when you fire it."

Dumbest advice given: Sure a used jennings is worth 200 dollars. Dumbest advise gotten(but not taken): Don't buy an AR, they are junk, cheeply made out of plastic.

That HK SP-89 is just too big. I'll go ahead and get the Taurus PT99 instead (1986 on my 21st. birthday).

To myself, after listening to a couple of friends and my Dearly Beloved saying "you've got too many; whaddaya need that for; etc.": "...yeah, I can trade these four off on those two and fill the niche". STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!!! [:E] Should have filled the "niche" with either used or new. NEVER should have Sold Out and traded away. I've regretted that day more than a few times.

Dumbest advice? I was with a friend when he was buying a Kel-Tec P32. He asked if we should take it apart to look it over, and I said no. I didn't want to embarrass myself by showing that I didn't know how to do it, and I thought it would be fine since it was NIB. That would have saved us a frustrating 102 mile, each way, trip to the range. He taught me some new obscenities on the long trip back. It would have also saved him $75, since he sold it for a loss after getting frustrated dealing with Kel-Tec. Now when I'm with someone buying a gun, I look it over very carefully, and I cycle dummy rounds through it, if I have them.z

Sharp Park Rifle range 1985. Dumb jerk on the range looking at my AR and bellows at the top of his lungs to his friend "Thats just an overglorified twenty two"

To my wife 1989: You wanna go hunting with me? That's great. I'm short on cash, I know a guy who wants my little Uzi pistol. He'll trade me two 94's for it. Who needs a 9 anyway?[puke]

Me to a buddy in California, Dec 1988) "Dude, you need to buy that Jet-Ski. Forget buying those 2 (real) Colt AR15's. This is a killer deal on a Jet-Ski, besides, the AR15's will be cheaper in a few months anyways."

Damn that mag release sucks get the AR180. (Said about an AUG. They were priced about the same in ’87. The 180 was a sterling and the bolt cracked after 250 rnds.) Or how about... Why would you want a crate of SKS? Sure they are $65 per but they’re pieces of Chinese crap. Then there’s the ever popular... Fluted chamber, no bolt hold-open and it weighs a ton. (said about HK94 when they were $750)

The first time I saw the SP89 in a retail store it was around $1,300.00.

"Sure, go ahead a buy an extra mag for that Raven .25"

At a gunshow.. "Nah, you don't want that SP89 for $895.00. They're basically a overweight/overgrown 9mm pistol"

I told this to a pest at a gun show about three or four months ago. This guy would not leave me alone, so I ended our conversation with this: "A .25 auto is about the best gun you can buy for personal protection.." Ian

Not buying a $400+ original CZ-75 (the one's made in the first year of production with a better grade of steel) which is a collectible arm. i instead bought a cheap .45 Norinco 1911. not buying another pre-ban rifle for less then $700 dollars when i had the chance. Advice im glad i did take. not buying a M16a2 with a burst trigger group from a couple of "Marines", who told be that Burst was legal. price $500+ not buying a MP40 full-auto from germany that was not registered. price $1200+ with WW2 case and accessories. some of the best Gun advice i could ever give is to not buy a "hot" or illegal weapon. the trade off in years in jail, plus a fine is not worth the pride in ownership of an unregistered NFA weapon.

Dumb advice: antique firearms can be carried on your hip in a holster with no authorization, license or registration needed Fact: The above is true in most circumstances... EXCEPT for the relatively common circumstance of transporting the gun in a vehicle, IF the gun is an antique handgun. In which circumstance the gun must be transported in an opaque locked container, with no authorization, license or registration needed. Though I haven't been able to confirm this, I have been told that 'four or five' people have been arrested while apparently transporting an unlocked antique handgun.
