    He bought a hundred year old gun for three bucks? Aren't there people who will pay fat sacks of cash money for old guns?

    Also, after some internet searching, it appears that the gun was manufactured in 1904 and uses black-powder cartridges.

    you silly billy, it's a harmless antique

    it's probably both a very common model and in very poor condition

    Your roommate should've bought a real gun. That could kill people.

    I'm sure if you hit someone with the handle hard enough it would still kill.

    I hear that in some states you get a gun when opening up a bank account.

    Sigh, no. It doesn't work like that. Stop watching Michael Moore movies.

    So, it seems that my roommate just bought a hand gun... from a thrift store... for three dollars. I'm not quite sure what I think of this turn of events.

    It doesn't have a safety.

    Is this the guy we played Boom Blox with?

    Exactly how rusty is this gun? Do any of its parts move anymore?

    Yeah.

    He's pretty fucking excited about the purchase. The gun is in phenomenal condition. The trigger still works, the auto-eject on the chamber (or whatever the fuck the center bit of a revolver is called) still works. It's a 5-shooter, which is weird.

    It doesn't really have any rust on it at all.

    Callius, when I saw the first post and then nothing else from you for a few pages I did get a little worried.

    That would have been way too creepy if you had posted a topic about your imminent murder

    Well, I was trying to be polite.

    But it would have been super awesome. Like when a person knows the exact moment they are going to die so they tell some kids "wanna see a neat trick?"

    I have a friend whose roommate owns a gun. And one day the roommate came home to find his roommate cleaning the gun. Basically the gun was pointed at him as he walked in and he's like 'damn man watch where you're pointing that when you clean' and sorta put his arms up like he was blocking himself.

    The roommate was like 'nah man ain't loaded, see?' pulled the trigger and fucking shot my friend. It went through his forearm and entered partway into his heart.

    My friend had enough time to softly say 'you fucking shot me' before he collapsed. Paramedics came and luckily he was okay.

    Their lease was up like a month later and not coincidentally they stopped living together after that.

    He must be really bad at cleaning guns. I mean, did he just chamber a cartridge before removing the clip or something. God that's retarded.

    I've got a shotgun for bears and deer, but that's about it. My roommate has a 45-70 guide rifle, pretty much for the same thing. But, you know, we don't shoot each other.

    I have no idea. The fact that he shot his roommate would go pretty far in convincing me that he's dumb as hell though, so I guess anything's possible.

    t wiseguy - oh yeah, he has a bitching scar on his arm, and it's gotten him some late-night action more than once. pretty fair trade, id say. what doesnt kill you only gets you laid, and all that

    the bottom line is he's a fucking idiot for pointing a gun at someone he didn't intend to shoot

    he's immensely more retarded for intentionally pulling the trigger to "prove" it wasn't loaded

    he should have pressed charges in my opinion because this fucker is too goddamn stupid to be let off the hook

    M1A is pretty dang awesome but its heavy as fuck.

    My AR-15 is like 7 pounds--quite manageable.

    Or his face will be covered with tears as his supposed enemy's 5-year old daughter who by circumstance is now standing between him and his enemy turns out to be fine, and everyone cries joyfully, having discovered the folly of violence, and the value of life and understanding.

    that's why I always preferred them, the weight made it feel like a much more solid and accurate rifle. But that was just at the range, the only thing we ever carried were either the DMR variant of the M14 or the MK-18 CQB M16 version. The only full length 16s we went out with were ones we had a 203 launcher on, and they were the old full auto ones.

    AR-15s are pretty affordable. More than an M1A.

    I've never held a gun


    well except for when I was army trained

    but never in civilian life. I wouldn't know where to get one either. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'd have to find an illegal seller to get even the smallest piece. I think you can maybe get hunting rifles though, but then you gotta be a certified hunter

    This story angers me greatly. Jesus fuck you never ever ever ever point a gun at someone. I don't point a single action shotgun, broken open that visibly lacks a shell, at someone.

    What confuses me is why someone so dumb would bother to clean his gun. Wouldn't he just view it as the fun metal thing that goes bang when he pulls the lever?
