the postings on the topic for the most part are freaking hilarious, i seriously cannot belive some of the opinions on here, lots of misinformation,
cudos to the people that have given sound advice and know the law for where they live. I personally do a lot of shopping online to price gun sales, i
am legal and have several different types of guns from shottys to .22 to 762x54r to 9mm. Here is the basics and the truth for you, as long as your not
a felon you will be legal for almost any firearm, so start there, then check the laws for ohio you find plenty of faq's and also the pdf file for
ohio if you google it, from what ive seen the laws are the same for colorado and ohio, you dont have to register any gun for any reason, you can
purchase any firearm in a private sale legally, just be smart get a bill of sale with the serial numbers and also probably the licencse # of the
person selling it keep good records and you wont have a problem in the future. if your sketch about a person and private sale, DONT BUY IT, if your
legal and going to get a firearm take a couple things into consideration: also if your worried ask a police officer they will tell you, YOU SHOULD
HAVE IT REGISTERED, but will tell you you dont have to legally.
1: does it feel good to you?
2: ammo is it available and how much it costs
3: will it serve your purpose?
4: go test guns before you buy, dont just go look at guns at the store, go find a good range that will rent you firearms and test them. do your
research you can always find a good deal ( legally ) i heard on a differnt forum that the sport store like big 5 has old school Walther P-1's (AKA
the P-38 of WWII fame) for like 280.00 not the most glamorous, but better than nothing if your worried. you will find something just be smart.
5 definately practice, your firearm will do you no good if you dont know how to use it safely, also know how to dismantle and clean your firearm
you will find that most people that shoot and firearms as a hobby are more than helpfull and will teach you anything you want privided they know, you
will be able to find classes everywhere for personal protection/tatical shooting ect.. take a class cant hurt to be prepared. and show respect for
anything with the power to end life. ohh and go get your hunters saftey card you will need that if you plan on hunting.
good luck and be safe, oh and dont bother with fancy, you want reliablilty, if your going to get something to defend your self be dameded you trust
it, it could mean your life.
if were to suggest some guns based on availablility and price of ammo, i would either go with a 9mm cheap ammo 100 rounds for like 20 bucks, or .40
little more expensive, as for a rifle get a m44 mosin nagant between 60-100.00 for the rifle and 80.00 you could get around 300+ rounds this would
take down any north american game, almost a .308 in ballistics
