... Hell I only have one rifle but wouldn't mind having maybe two more and a handgun or something. I just find that shooting a half inch steel plate at 100yards with a 1943 Mosin Nagant that fires a big ass bullet (7.62x54mmR), and kicks like a mule is f**kin awesome!!! It's a lot of fun but I'm always safe about it. Like uber safe. Like "it's always loaded even if it's not"
I was just wondering if there's other survivors out there who like to go shooting/trust themselves with a firearm.
I always wanted to own one since I was a kid and now I have one.
Me and my inner child have succeeded.

I REALLY don't know why we let ourselves fall into any qualification category like that. Don't do that to yourself. There's NO reason to not trust yourself because of being a survivor. You want to NOT trust yourself if yer honest with yourself and know you are not responsible.


But yeah...me too since I was 6. Dad gave me my first .22 at 6. I grew up with safety course after safety course..then police training, then govt training, then more police training...I have a stack of training certificates a mile thick. IMO....TRAINING is a must and NO ONE should adopt a gun until they take FORMAL training.

OK...Seriousness aside:
Here's a picture of what this stuff can do to you if you begin at such an early age though:

Parents take notice...Parents take ACTION! Don't let your kids end up like me! Kids....stay in school!!!

Wow man! Nice one!
I think I'll stick to the mosin for now. Maybe an AR one day.
It's a fun, safe hobby though and a great way to blow off steam.
And the whole trusting yourself thing was probably just negative self-talk seeping out.
My next one will be a Mauser k98k or a Tokarev SVT-40. The latter being more convenient as it would share ammo with my current rifle.
Thanks for the reply Robbie Brown! Glad to know i'm not alone in my hobby!

Interesting post... On Dec 30th I went shooting for the first time in 20 years (just hadn't come up before; I'm 30yo btw). I went to a range with a friend and shot handguns and one rifle. To be honest, I was pretty scared because the range was real busy and LOUD... I felt like I had the power of the V8 in my truck in my hand. After a while it was cool though.

My recovery work has been going on about 4 months now... I will say that recovery and me going shooting are actually connected because as I am starting to let out all this "pus" and starting to process what healthy relationships look like I realized it's not a bad thing to go do an *activity* with a friend instead of always just wanting to talk...

Henri, I wonder why for you being a survivor makes you question trusting yourself with guns? Perhaps right not you're questioning trusting yourself in general?

BTW, my name is Mike... I should look into changing my member name on here blush

When I said that stuff about not trusting myself with guns, I was just putting myself down. Its sort of a habbit. I'm workin on it. I trust myself. It's a fun, safe hobby

I live in AZ. Fortunately we don't need a permit to conceal.
I havn't bought a handgun yet but I have my eye on a nice s&w sigma 40.
I would never use it unless I absolutely had to. Other than that just plinking at the range is fun and you meet some cool people there.

I would still take the class to familiarize myself with the laws, the rest is pretty much common sense.
