Hmm, I've always loved pistols so much...looking at some of the pics in the armoury forum makes me SICK!

Then again, I think I would probably buy a pistol per month if they were allowed in the UK making me very poor and very much in debt.

Hmmm, that may be, but it's nicer to be able to handle them daily, and be able to shoot them at least 3-4 times a week

Andy,

Please tell me more about the "un-banning" in Ireland, especially the full-auto part? When did this happen? I had read some of the Irish laws several years back and they did not look shooting-friendly.

GPP= Gas Powered Pistol.
GBB= Typo??

What's a f**king shame is that only a few years ago we could actually own stuff like that, and now we can't

UK pistol/rifle semi-auto rules back to what they were before the last lot of changes.
No fannying round with temporary olympic licences for poxy calibres. Reinstate the previous laws completely. They achieved no measurable reduction in gun crime.

I see no middle ground and I dont see why I should.

Look's like the title of this thread really did hit the nail on the head, even if Johan meant something else.

Having read Vito's coment's about the Irish law change's, wouldn't it be possible to attempt the same in the UK?

Please don't call me a witch (and burn me) on this idea, is it worth a try, or is no one willing to give it a try?

It would appear that the top two are threaded for moderator? Or possibly recoil reducer?

And the Tan Glock looks cool with the M2.........sigh....... I can only hope.....

OK, you've conviced me;

This weekend I'll either shoot my Glock 17 or my Walther PPK in .380 ACP.
And at the moment I'm leaning towards the PPK.

Maybe next weekend I'll shoot one of my rifles.
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 1:50:06 AM EDT
Enjoy! Meanwhile I'll be dreaming of the day when they are unbanned here.

I think at the moment the biggest problem is public perception. The sheeple masses are too bainwashed by TV+movies, and almost all people see guns as being bad/evil. They cannot fathom the idea that people collect/enjoy guns just like people enjoy stamp collecting or jogging...this perception by the general public had been achieved by the media and government....the government especially runs a concerted campaign to keep shooting as a sport out of the minds of the sheeple...I think deep down the politicians/socialist goverment are just afraid that the people will have more power if they are allowed to have arms...

We aren't 'supposed' to be run by Socialists here yet.

It's rather evident we are though.

Denmark, a true Socialist goverment has 50% income tax, 200% car purchase tax, but free healthcare and free education, so do we want the same here?

I don't.

Hiya Davey,

I can't hit the bull with a USP but I can with my Glock, probably need some more practice with the USP.
Once got to shoot my mate's P7M8, I was gobsmacked, I had never shot a pistol so good in my whole life. alsa the authoritie's won't let me buy any more hand gun's. through trick's that shall remain a secret I already legally own more than most

Toe.

Sorry peep's, as a member of the glock fancier's assoc. I had to bite

Nothing wrong with Glocks IMO. I like them.
The problem for most people is...they aren't fancy enough.
I've always found them to be accurate and reliable. And they're simple to use.

The USP on the otherhand is over complicated and over engineered. And I've seen them go wrong.

Rather'd have the Glock.

Link Posted: 1/21/2006 4:43:17 AM EDT
I really liked the feel of the Glocks, but I'm not accurate with them at all. Might be due to their low weight.

Sorry to butt in but I've carried a Glock for 8 years in rain, snow, heat and humidity, and have not had a problem with it. IMHO it is one of the better sidearms for the money. However it still is not as nice as my 1911-A1 for accuracy or coolness.


Sorry to hit up your hometown pages but I'm headed to Ireland this summer to visit the family and I wanted to see what all the talk was.
