    I got to thinking after I picked up the Ruger the other day. I had not owned a firearm for about two years and just picked it up because I wanted something for the house and because of the deal. Now I think I'll start a modest collection again. At least another pistol and a shotgun and rifle.

    Do you own firearms? I know this might be a "touchy" subject sor some, but could make for interesting debate.

    A few, but not nearly as many as my appetite would allow. I honestly really don't know what I do and don't have anymore as Dad's and mine collections have fused into one inventory.

    I have a wanting desire to collect all the arms my grandfather carried in WWII. Some people play golf, I prefer long range shooting although I get to indulge as often as an Inuit gets to take a full body 3 hour tanning session in January. I'd give a kidney, or the $9K price, for the Barret M82A1 in the .416. I can't stomach $9 a pop for the .50, and I sure can't afford the shoulder replacement surgery.

    The S & W 500 is a work of art, my fav from the collection (probably because its also the newest to my collection), smooth and mean. Way more accurate than I had expected. Rounds are far from cheap, ive yet to shoot the heavy lead.

    Next i plan on adding a desert eagle to the collection.

    Anybody looking for any parts or anything i highly recommend brownells.com.

    I'm not anti-gun, but I believe that are completely unnecessary for the average suburban American. They clearly cause more hard than do good.

    A hand gun has two uses. Defense, something that shouldn't be needed in suburban America unless you are a police officer and offensive use. Also a police officer or some other military like group.

    You don't hunt with a hand gun, therefore there is no reason to have one. The only thing I've found that it does, is give people power trips. Power trips due to guns is usually a potent mixture that absolutely nothing good can come from.

    If you live in rural America, there can be a need for a rifle or even a shotgun.

    I myself own a 1932 Remington bolt-action 22 rifle. It's an heirloom from my grandfather. He lived in Hill County Texas and his father gave it to him so he could shoot animals that invaded their crops at night. (how they made their money) He offered it and a 1978 Remington 12-gauge he had purchased to go hunting to me, I rejected the 12 gauge because it had no physical or sentimental value to me.

    My wife is full blown anti-gun which is why the rifle isn't kept at my house.

    I just have a bunch of knives...however I am thinking about buying a hand gun sometime this year. Just so I can go to the range when I want something to do.
