Congrats! I've been looking to get a few more items myself but I am getting frustrated most of the things I am looking at are either sold out everywhere or the price is insanely inflated. I guess everyone is getting things while they can.

Hi,

My sense of humour is kind of broken, so I understand if some of you do not find this as funny as I do...




July 28, 2006 -- Handling a gun makes men's testosterone levels rise -- and makes them more aggressive. The finding comes from a study by psychology student Jennifer Klinesmith and her professors at Knox College, Galesburg, Ill. Klinesmith designed the study, in which 18- to 22-year-old college men participated.

Klinesmith told the men they'd be taking part in a study of the effect of attention to detail on taste sensitivity. She collected a saliva sample for testosterone testing. Then she led each man into a room where he sat at a table with an object on it. The man had to take apart the object and put it back together according to instructions.

For half the men, the object was a pellet gun that mimicked a Desert Eagle automatic handgun. The other half of the men worked with a child's game called Mouse Trap.

Fifteen minutes later, the men gave another saliva sample. Then they were asked to taste a lidded 3-ounce cup of water with a drop of Frank's Red Hot Sauce in it.

"Such findings raise many of the usual questions about whether the presence of guns in modern society contributes to violent behavior," Klinesmith and colleagues conclude. "Although our study is clearly far from definitive, its results suggest that guns may indeed increase aggressiveness partially via changes in the hormone testosterone."

Kind of embarrassing huh?

So I guess you all should keep that in mind while 'playing' with your 'guns'.

I requalified o one of those top-break .45 revolvers. Very accurate. All I can say is watch where your thumb is when you close it. OUCH.

As if guns are the only thing that makes mens' testosterone levels rise. I wonder what guns do to WOMENS' testosterone levels. Kind of an incomplete study, wouldn't you say? Biased, even?

You had me until you said pink, LOL.
I'm a female, but more of a Tomboy.
I'll let you know more what I'm interested in, after I try a few more.
Thanks for the advice though!

Sitting in my tricked out sports car with a mammoth of a V8 in it raises my testosterone, too.
What is your point?

Good for you. Must be a bit of a dilemma buying guns at the moment. I must admit if i ever moved to the usa,. I would buy a gun. Would love to join a gun club or go shoot on a range. No chance of that over here

Good for you! We need more responsible gun owners. I bought to waepons this year also. I bought an AR for $600 maybe a month before the shooting. As sad as it is, I guess a bought at the right time. It is now all decked out with goodies just in time! I also bought a px4 9mm. I got it just because the cheap ammo. I think your purchase of a .45 was a good one. Personally, i like .40 better, but .45 will stop anything. I love how all these people instantly say; "good luck keeping it locked up." It is like people out there are hoping for bad things to happen to gun owners. I grew up around guns and view them as a part of life. I think it is crazy that people act like guns are the devil. How many people die a year in alchol related deaths? Why dont we ban all alcohol? O, because then a black market will start. I.E. prohibition. It seems safer to me that citizens are legally able to own guns instead of a black market for guns popping up. I would much rather have guns in the hands of responsible individuals and criminals, then just in the hands of criminals. "Yes sir, criminal sir! Here is my car, my money, my family." Trust in the goodness of the American people. They aren't all bad! There are still a lot of good, responsible, caring Americans. Lets show everyone that America is a great place with great people, mostly.

Congrats on the buy mate. I must admit I've always had a soft spot for antique revolvers, but the closest I could ever afford was a single action .44 ruger super blackhawk. ... was good fun though...

Not unless you are afraid of feeling like a man. Men have enjoyed testosterone since they were able to scratch. If you prefer to wear skirts, I guess I can see how you might be embarassed. (Don't ask, don't tell)

Yeah, I got that gun-masturbation thing out of my system when I served in the paratroops; I have moved on now,

What unit did you serve in, Sheila?

P.S. Oh, you're from North Cacalacky, you must have been in the 82nd, I can't wait to hear what unit. Maybe we were buddies once.

And your location is Cygnus X-1.

Ok this is great,

I am going to be really assumptive here, if I am wrong then you have my apology in advance.

By Cygnus X-1 I am assuming you mean the band Rush. Are you from Canada?

If so the idea that your testosterone gets spiked from sitting in your muscle car listening to Rush just kills me.

Quebecoise!

On the other hand, if you are American, it is still funny, just not as funny.

Thanks for the reply.

I have several replicas of guns I just can't afford to purchase. These Schofields was a big purchase for me as I have wanted these particular revolvers for a long time. Very accurate pistol, real good balance. A good purchase.

I like the Bob Craine avatar. Boy could a thread be done on his life & times & death. Hogans Heros was a really crazy show. I wonder if Bob shared with anybody from that show his attraction for pornography and 8mm films? If you ever have a chance to get these pistols, do it. You want regret the purchase.
