For a long time the common method of handling disputes between "GENTLEMEN" was a duel...with guns.

A gun is just a tool like any other.

I'm a bit lazy, and rather than have to run these SOB's down, it's so much easier to drop them from where I stand.

And firearms are much less messy. I didn't want to, and it was forced on me, but when you have to use a blade, it's one big, tiresome, messy endeavor.

I didn't even get cut and looked like I got slaughtered.

Guns.

The choice of professionals.

Gentlemen, prefer Bombs...

Monsters prefer bombs. Bombs = collateral damage.

Gentlemen prefer, like a previous poster said .357 hollow-point. .357 Hollow-point = nice stopping power against a purp.

N'uff said.

Ok because that makes perfect sense, since we're here do they prefer the type dropped from the air or the terrestrial variety? then again store bought or homemade?

.45 ACP.

Because shooting twice is just silly.

And because they don't make a .46.

Trying to be a gentleman are ya.Writing trash like this ain't no step in the right direction.Allow me to open the door for a nice young fella like you so you can leave before one of these nasty macho men here take yer words to mean something they don't.They might take offense to being told they are just trying to be macho by owning a gun.They thought they were owning something they had a right to own to protect their families and homes.Now I hope ya'll ain't saying that these nice gentlemen here don't have the right to protect their families and homes.Especially in these dark days when the world is agoing crazy.They and I would take great offense to that and would consider them some fighten words.So now why don't ya'll take that baloney else where so nobody gets hurt and we'all will pretend that you are that gentleman you yurn to be.

I would run around for two minutes and kick the s*** out of Kimbo Slice, Same with Pudzianowski........These boys need to start doing some cardio. If it was Alistair Overeem on the other hand i would need a Browning .50 Caliber Machine Gun.


Kimbo slice knocked down.


On a more serious note, Guns are carried around for protection by more responsible individuals. It sure as hell makes you cooler, I'm sorry but you feel safer and the only thing you start to worry about is police harassment. There's no way I'm gonna sit around unarmed waiting for a bunch of people to knock on my door and relocate me to some s***y concentration camp. One piece of advice though - If you cannot control your anger, Don't carry a gun.

My choice would be B and C, together.


Kimbo slice? Really? You picked the literal bottom of the barrel to make your example?

The qualification of this thread, pretending it is some sort of country club where the only members who can join are the ones who own a gun and for a specific reason, that specific reason being that gun ownership makes them feel "macho", is as about as disingenuous as one can get. Gentleman my eye! Tell that to the tree, buddy.

Let's be clear here, I have never owned a gun, I don't like guns, and I pray to God I never have need for a gun. I am a writer and a firm believer that the pen is far mightier than the sword. So, as a writer who deigns to use words to defend liberty, allow me to use these words to serve and protect the gun owner. I am most grateful for their existence. I understand that the vast majority of people who own guns do so because they understand the profound need to own them, and while for some that profound need may come in the form of hunting, for most the need stems from defense of liberty. They understand how much of deterrent an armed populace is to tyranny. It is what has stemmed the tide of tyranny in the United States, and yet, look at what is happening in the U.S. in spite of that. If ever there were a true illustration of how important it is to remain vigilant over freedom, and ever watchful of the petty tyrants, the once great nation of the United States serves as that illustration.

Once great because it sure as hell ain't great any more. Not great any longer because even with a heavily armed populace, being armed is just not enough. Because our Founders were fairly disingenuous in their establishment of this once great nation, and winkingly turned a blind eye to slavery, because when it came time to step up and abolish slavery it was used as a disingenuous excuse to enslave an entire nation, because We the People have too much of a tendency to be "disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms (of tyranny) to which they are accustomed", even an armed populace will have a difficult time in abolishing the insidious tyranny that permeates American soil today.

Yet, even so, there are many poised and ready to defend liberty and the ever respected ideals of this nation the United States, and very many of them are gun owners. You think it is funny to diminish this genuine heroism and adherence to principles simply because you, as a "gentleman", have a hard time understanding those ideals? This is your right, and by God, were you confronted with a tyrant in the U.S. who would deign to suppress that right, there are many, very many of them gun owners, who would - without ever pulling out a gun or pulling a trigger - step up and defend your right to make fun of them. Think that's funny? Have your laughs good "gentleman", it is, after all, your right.

I grew up around guns, and rarely, if ever, saw anyone act irresponsibly. Nothing wrong with guns at all. The problem is people, and when the wrong people gain access to guns. And guess what, when the wrong people gain access to guns, you better believe I want my .45 for protection.

The OP sounds more macho with this rediculous thread than anyone I've known who's handled guns. The OP also uses worse grammar than anyone I know who has handled guns.

I know right. Kimbo Slice is garbage......he belongs on the streets and not in the octagon.

Let me rephrase the question:



What if ALISTAIR OVEREEM was running toward's you with intention to separate your . from THE EARTH, would you, A -stand there and think you have a chance with your SWISS MINI GUN and half mm rounds, B - draw for your man made weapon of choice (.50 M2 Browning machine gun) sitting quietly inside your SUV, or, C- RUN! ?¿ My choice would be B and C, together.




How would you defend yourself against this guy without a weapon?
- Had to bring it back on topic with the question.

so umm your basically implying clint eastwood is a pussy then? i bet that old man could beat you down without a gun anyway.. if you lived in a real bad place like umm juarez, nuevo leon, nuevo laredo or some places of the sort i bet you would be singing a different tune about guns. # people there have frag grenades, mortars, hell the police there carry m16's and other varients of it so are they pussies? you need to re think your logic


a great saying by clint eastwood ( Ever notice how once in a while you come across someone that you shouldn't have fcked with??? Thats me.)

Could we get a show of hands of members who fit the description of gun owners in the OP?

Yeah, pretty much what I thought. Nada.

Nice try at yet another "provocation of gun owners" thread though, but your assumptions are not based in any reality I'm familiar with, if anything, gun ownership instills one with an even greater sense of responsibility and humility. Quite the opposite of the macho-thing you're getting at.

Being prepared for the worst has little to do with feeding a macho-man image, yo.

Same here...

I'm personally very confused by this thread... it's like when someone makes a family guy reference to an episode you haven't seen. You just kind of sit there thinking "............... huh?"

I don't know, maybe I'm not macho enough to get what the OP is saying... or perhaps too macho? I'm just really confused that all I know.

Anyway carry on!
