Two years ago my dad comes home with a gun strapped to his hip. My heart leaps into my throat and I fall back on the couch in shock.

I say, "Dad ...  What the HELL?!!!"
He says, "I thought I should start carrying. She's a Sig P229, wanna hold her?"

"Dad, you've been dead since 2007!"

Then he let out a high-pitched scream, became a translucent mist and vanished ...  leaving behind the scent of almond extract.

factoryconnection: luniz5monody: I seem to recall a rule about not pointing a weapon at something unless you want a hole in it. Although with these magic poltergeist weapons, all the rules are right out the window.

Rule #1 of Poltergeist Gun Safety: do what the gun says or ELSE


It is getting tiring....

When I come home from work, I have to put on the entire set of body armor before I get through the front door. I can't trust that all my weapons are still in the safe in the basement. If they have truly gone full poltergeist, I can't know if they've let themselves out of the safe or not. They could have made it out and are waiting for me to walk through that door. I will not take that chance. The body armor stays on until I leave for work the next morning.

The only thing that can stop a good mom with a gun is a good kid with a gun.  No wait, you can get good look at a t-bone by sticking a gun up your mom's vagina, no that isn't right either.

Aquapope: I found out from a gun thread a week or two ago that most pistols don't have safeties.  Would that be a hard thing to require on new pistols?  How could the NRA have a freakout over that?  I'm sure they would, but I'm not sure how their raccoon-nest thinking would come up with outrage.

From what son?  You didn't finish your sentence.  What does it protect us from?  Idiots?  Is the gun supposed to protect us from idiots?  Good jerb gun.

teenytinycornteeth: you know what, I may have to stay out of gun threads from now on.  Not for the partisan bullshiat, not for the round an' round an' round semantic arguments, not for the ad hominem attacks or massive dick waving, but because if I hear one more person say "keep your nose picker off the bang switch" as if it's a hilarious gun retort, I'm going to pull my own face off.


Keep your booger hooks of the bang switch.
Now record that shiat and post to YouTube. Never seen someone pull his own face off. Will you use a tool, or just booger hooks?

Not sure if serious...

Yes, I'm serious.  What's your problem?

He's just checking to see if you're that mechanically ignorant. Most handguns have mechanical safeties of one sort or another, but requiring them on all new guns would be dumb and unproductive. For technical reasons you don't have the background knowledge to understand, obviously, or you wouldn't have asked the question.

Yes, I'm that mechanically ignorant about guns.  I've only fired a rifle and a pistol a couple of times.  How would I know the prevalence of safeties on handguns?  I asked the question BECAUSE I don't have the background - don't be a dick about it.  You could have simply said "Most handguns do have some kind of mechanical safety" and be done with it.

I'd like to have asked more things about guns, and you could have shown off how much you know by explaining to a complete newby.  Answers from more knowledgeable people in a community are better than digging around on a wiki somewhere, especially when you don't really know the jargon specific to the target.

Dude, you're in a Fark gun thread. Are you THAT much of a newbie that you think people will gently take you by the hand and teach you the fine points of why you just asked a stupid question that had the appearance of pure trollery? Bless your heart.

I expect all of the gun fanatics already have been stroking their respective barrels in anticipation of the massive circle jerk that always erupts whenever there's a gun thread. Or do you have fluffers?


Youll need a dab or three of this if your interesting in applying for the position.

Doc Daneeka: factoryconnection: Also: from the comments "a gunshot to the leg can put you in critical condition?"

Yeah, dummy, they're callled "femoral arteries."

One of the biggest problems in the country (including with guns, but also with everything) is people who think reality is like TV and movies.

A gunshot wound to the leg or shoulder is no big deal!  Just shrug it off and keep going!

Idiots.


As an avid video game player, I am aware that firearm-related injuries are not as depicted in television and movies.

I know that, if shot, I should immediately seek cover and remain motionless for several seconds to allow the injury to spontaneously heal.

Just in case you aren't trolling....

ALWAYS treat aEVERY firearm as if it'sis ALWAYSloaded
NEVER point it at something you aren't willing to destroy
NEVER put your finger on the trigger until you're ready to shoot
ALWAYS be sure of your target and what's beyond it.

There is no reason for a mechanical safety under these circumstances.  In fact most if not all revolvers have no safety to speak of .

CSB:
When I was a kid of, oh, maybe 11 or so, I went to the gun range with my dad.  We shot our .22 pistols for a couple of hours, then we came home.  Dad asked me to clean the guns, and I was still young enough to think that was fun, so I said, "Okay!"  I went into Mom and Dad's bedroom, where I cleaned Dad's gun.  I then very carefully pulled out my Ruger .22 revolver and took 6 bullets out of the cylinder and placed them in a pile on the bed.  As I was taught by my dad, I continued on around the cylinder twice, pushing the ejector until I had pushed it 12 times.  I then put the gun back in the holster on my hip and proceeded to do fast-draws.  The third time I drew, cocked and fired, the gun went off.  Once I got over my freakout and my dad had taken the gun out of my shaking hands, I was able to show him the 6 bullets I had removed, laying in a pile on the bed.  I will swear to my dying day that I removed 6 bullets from that gun.  So now, whenever I am handed a weapon of any kind, I immediately clear the chamber, even if the person handing me the gun just did the same in my presence.

This is why I always look down the barrel before I pull the trigger. Safety first!

Let's see. Statistically, you are more likely to get shot if you have a gun in the house.  Someone brought a gun into the house. A person living in that house got shot.

Yup. The math works.

durbnpoisn: I reference to the idea that a gun is always loaded, it's story time...

Years ago, my father in law died.  While cleaning out his house, my wife found a small gun under his pillow.  I told everyone to leave the room, locked myself in the bathroom, and carefully opened up the gun.  It had a single short-shot .22 in the chamber.  It was loaded.

So I took out the bullet, and made it a point to pack away the gun and the box of bullets in seperate places.

A few weeks ago, we decided to search the basement because neither my wife or I could remember where the hell we packed the thing away.  We found it in a locked briefcase in the basement.  So, I'm looking at the instruction booklet that came with it, and I was astonished to find out, it was NOT a single shot pistol after all.  It has a magazine in the handle.  Once I got that out, I found that the entire magazine was loaded.

In other words, even though I thought I unloaded it, I didn't actually completely.  And that's scary as hell.
I'm still a little baffled as to how this gun works as a semiautomatic, as the only way to discharge the spent shell is to open up the barrel.  (perhaps someone could explain that one.)

The point of the story is, the gun is ALWAYS loaded.  Never assume otherwise.


OMG. Why did you not call the bomb squad?

Oh, look. A gun thread. I guess it's time to come on in and tell liberals how farked up they are because they don't have guns and don't get to experience things like this.

Also a good chance to let everybody know that I have fewer terrorists living around me because I have a gun.

If liberals only knew how to live. If they could only realize how awesome this shiat is.
