    The firearm thread

    A popular thread on my SV site, so will try it here. Let me know if I missed any options in the poll.

    This is just for talking about firearms, not the rights and wrongs of firearm ownership.

    Anyone know who the NZ browning importer is? I need an extractor spring for an auto-22.

    P.S. Does a hand grenade count as a firearm?

    Does a paintball gun count as a firearm?

    You have to be 18 to own one or hold a firearms license.
    I use it more often than my beretta as well.

    It is a bit hard to justify hanging on to my firearms as I never seem to get out hunting anymore so they are just tucked away in the gun cabinet.

    Maybe just maybe one day I will sell them - but I doubt it as the kiwi bloke has to have the odd firearm lying around, it is part of our culture
    I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

    Gestapo gun laws!

    I had a firearms licence since I was old enough but got rid of my firearms and chucked my licence in when they started all this anti gun behaviour in the Government and the bloody police.

    They sure got it wrong for the law abiding and right for the criminally minded in my opinion, it's easier not to register. Fuckwits! John.

    I have a spring lying around from a browning .22. Do you know the size of it?

    Guns? Right up there with motorbikes when it comes to fun!

    Had 'em since before I was 16, still got my first new rifle bought in 1973 or earlier, not sure how many I have now but I still manage to get out a bit - even if a lot of the time it's just after hares etc.

    Just got inside , my daughters partners and I had been out with a very needy Jack Russel went for a walk for about an hour around the boundary of a neighbours farm. He mentioned after picking up hay last night rabbits numbers getting up. This dog sleeps on the bed and lives inside. Well after 4 large Possums, 2 Hares and three rabbits, his breath stinks worse that ever and he is now looked at with a bit more respect. Tomorrow got to sort out a problem with an escaped Captain cooker/Duroc cross piglet about 3 months old that escaped before christmas been hanging out with same neighbours weaners but disturbs cows each time they go past to milking. Leaving to go Woodstock Rally on thursday so have to catch pig or shoot the little buggar nieghbour wife sick of the interuptions at milking time. Plus find out that they had to get a professional in 1 km away to destroy 12 escaped farmed deer that were trashing maize on a lease block, they reckon the cost was quite reasonable only 400 bucks. For god sake you have to pay people now to shoot deer, Very few people on our Peninsular have a firearm I'm waiting for the day that the police turn up because I've been out shooting and a neighbour complains, can't fire blackpowder or the ole 7.62 stuff anymore too many neighbours, and people think you are a redneck if you have gun up here nowdays. The PC bullshit continues probably won't be able to use a chainsaw soon noise pollution or something.
    Sort of getting the feeling the monopoly want firearms out or only used at a licenced shooting range after paying suitable fees of course.

    Since everybody else seems to have completely ignored Spankee's plea to stay on topic I'm going to veer to the right myself.

    IF YOUR EYES ARE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER YOU SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO OWN A FIREARM.
    Some things are worth dying for, living is one of them.
