WARNING. The following may not meet the standards for political correctness in the community you live in. But it is mostly funny. YMMV





Ten Nine Reasons Men Prefer Guns Over Women

#10. You can trade an old 44 for a new 22.

#9. You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you're on the road.

#8. If you admire a friend's gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

#7. Your primary gun doesn't mind if you keep another gun for a backup.

#6. Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.

#5. A gun doesn't take up a lot of closet space.

#4. Guns function normally every day of the month.

#3. A gun doesn't ask , "Do these new grips make me look fat?"

#2. A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it.

#1. You can buy a silencer for a gun. This is not factual. It is ILLEGAL anywhere in the USA to possess a silencer for a firearm. It kinds spoils the joke for me...  :-/  Silencer for a paintball gun is legal though.

I thought it may be better that I didn't respond. :-/

... OK - just one question -- can you put a pillow over a gun to silence it? :-?

Guess I watched too much TV as a kid -- they were always using silencers or pillows on TV. :-/

I haven't been able to remember many good jokes lately. :(

I can't imagine a pillow having much effect on the roar my 45 makes anyhow. I suppose the simple act of firing through a pillow is not illegal, but why you might feel the need is another matter. As for a silencer, if you are criminally minded you wouldn't care if it was legal or not.


Maybe I'm the only one, but why does GWB have a frog on his forehead?

That's the way I see it -- a criminal wouldn't care -- he's probably not even legal to have the gun.

...anyway  --- I don't know how it got there -- i just know it was a serious enough problem that the joke sent him to the doctor :-/

Dubya walks into the doctors office with a frog stuck to his forehead.

The doctor takes a look at the strange duo and says, "Well, what seems to be the problem here?"

Frog looks at the doc and says, "Doc, could you cut this wart off of my a$$?"  :-?:-/ :)

Silencers don't work worth crap on a revolver. Too much leakage at the front end of the cylinder. In a semi-automatic pistol, an explosive blast of hot gas from the muzzle creates the noise of the shot being fired. A silencer captures and dampens this gas. On a revolver, instead of capturing the muzzle blast, a silencer will force most of the gas back down the barrel to the cylinder. There will be a very slight reduction in noise, but not enough to make a difference. And, if the shot is fired in the dark, it will be even more noticeable, because the gases expelled at the cylinder will cause a bigger flash of light.

Never know when that knowledge might come in handy.

Actually thinking a bit more on this, it might be legal IF you go thru all the hoops, allow the ATF to background check you, pay a license fee, etc.  Why bother?

Yeah -- that is for movie stuff.

Around here shots are heard every few days year round.  People just plain like to shoot stuff. :)

Pretty big time redneck country here and unless you are shooting at somebody complaints are seldom made.

The day the county suggested looking into some new local city out of towner's complaint asking to make it illegal to shoot around here, the entire county supervisors council chamber was filled wall to wall with local rednecks looking like a lynch mob.  Needless to say we can still shoot here as we please.

Nice to have a few people around with some brains.  Now if someone will kindly show the whiney mis-placed city people back to their city.  >:(

I was thinking, maybe a gun is not the best method for ya. You  could use a Candle Stick, a Knife or maybe some Arsenic . Make sure the delivery is not in the Library, that would be so obvious. :P

well here in sc they are gun crazy... annoying as hell to listen to locals shoot all day long... and trust me folks we can sit out and listen it will not be 10 minutes before we hear a gun shot... and usually we hear them over and over... i dunno what the heck they  are doing... but they are not hunting... if you miss with shot one there is no way the dear or rabbit are around for shot 2 or 3 or 10 but they shoot one bullet after another bang bang bang all the damned time

if it is for target practice.... they either are world class marksmen or dumbasses who still cannot shoot what they aim at.

when we were kids we would go into the junk yard with the lever action 22 and try to shoot in the O's and 0's on license plates from a distance and then we would try to shoot through the same bullet hole twice in a row... guess we learned to shoot fairly quickly

bullets were expensive for us as kids we did not shoot to waste them much.... if I had the shot gun and I was going to shoot some birds for the barn cats I would wait until 2 or 3 were on the same branch and get em all with one bird shot in the 12 guage...My dad used to make me hunt squirrels as a kid because they were so destructive and chewed their way into the shop in the fall looking for a dry warm place to spend the winter.... squirrels are much faster than most people would think.. unless you get em on the ground eating they are hard to shoot and kill because they never stand still ever...

Our mountain property is far enough away from the crowds there's not much shooting we hear. The neighbor to the west, 1/4 mile or so, does like to practice though. I'm not certain what he shoots but it sounds big.

Myself I like to plink for fun, keeping the hand and eye trained, well mostly just for fun.  :)   I have a few 22's. One revolver, a pistol, and 2 rifles, one my ancient single shot Savage from a waaaay back. A brick (500) of ammo lasts a long time and is cheap, about the same as 50 Colt .45's.

I'm a good enough shot that i don't practice a lot-- just enough to make sure the gun is still shooting straight. :)

I have an old 22 semi-automatic rifle - a Ruger 22 revolver with an extra cylinder for 22 magnums, a Baretta 380 semi-auto pistol recommended by a cop and a 30.06 semi-auto rifle.  

I need to get another shotgun -- but I have most of it pretty well covered.

Do you use ear muffs? I never used to years ago. Well, who did back then? However, I am missing some frequencies now. When the hearing test was completed the lady asked me if I had been in the armed forces. I replied, "No. Why?" She told me about the range my hearing as deficient in and added that people who had been in the Army or Marines and had seen active combat frequently had the same hearing pattern... Too much time spent shooting stuff when I was younger.

I now have some Peltor electronic ear muffs which are super, and expensive. Model 7s

http://www.envirosafetyproducts.com/product/Peltor-Tactical-7S-Classic-Neckband-Model.html

Before I got those I had another pair of Peltor model 105 like these...

http://www.envirosafetyproducts.com/product/peltor-earmuffs-neckband-h10b.html

Actually I still have 2 pair of them, one pair stays with the chainsaw, the others in the shop. They are behind the neck types; they allow you to comfortably wear assorted headgear, from baseball caps to hard hats. Not too many others around like them.

Huh?  What did you say?

I should have years ago - between the loud shooting, stereo amplifier in the old ride, too much rock and roll too loud, and running equipment I have a lot of ringing.

I always carry earplugs now and wear them when operating equipment.  Usually not time and no pockets  :-/ when I have to go shoot something in the middle of the night. :)

Hmmmm. Yep, wearing the Koss Pro 4A headset in the darkroom for hours on end didn't help matters here either.  :'(  Then the woodworking machines like table saws with singing blades, tho 20 years ago I was wearing ear protection but not as good as the present stuff. And I didn't wear them all the time.

I have continuous background "muzak" as well.  :(

Sad thing is that it takes years for the damage to show up and many kids today won't believe you if you tell them of the dangers. Ditto some of those who toast themselves in the sun, courting skin cancer.

Hopefully our younger members are wiser than I was. Or if  not, will heed some advice if they read this. Investing in some top quality hearing protection now beats having to deal with diminished hearing later.

Once the ringing gets so loud, you are doomed to listen to the voices speaking inside your head, --- and look what that has done to me. :-/

They do give me some good advice sometimes though. 8-)
