    Mac-10's are usually less than a thousand dollars. But I'm not a big fan of any of the Mac's.

    I got a line on a Yugo Century, but until then I have a mini 14, but the stock is so nice I hate to throw it in the trunk. Yeah, I think I'll be picking up a Glock 17 somewhere soon.

    My Century Yugo has been all that I expected of it, but it's heavy. I dunnno about other AK's, but Optics Planet has the tritium inserts for the sights on the Yugo.
    I can't say enough for the G17. Don't let any of the junker korean magazines in the same room with your Glock.
    Otherwise, the factory Glock 33 round magazines work very nicely with mine, and my G19. Call around your local gun shops, and see if you can find any police turn-ins.
    The problems with the early Gen.4's have been worked out, and the changeable backstraps are nice.

    I'm not sure that's anything to brag about. It just goes to show how paranoid and frightened conservative white people are.

    I don't find any deals at gun shows, even for ammo.

    Wally world or Lucky Gunner have better ammo deals and palmetto state armory or buds have better gun deals.

    I just picked up another but to be used for concealed carry

    Just because one is paranoid does not mean one does not have enemies. Our enemies are progressives that do not view the Constitution as important.

    The crime rate per capita is 3 times higher in the U.K. than the U.S.

    Ya, 30,000 gun violence deaths when the government reports only 16000 homicides (which includes all forms of homicide, not just gun related)...interesting math.

    Actually, it's not. It's just typical lefty lala land hysteria.

    Just like the chicken little cries of blood baths in the wild west streets if we enacted CCW....of course, they'll never ever admit that in every state that CCW was enacted, violent crime went down, there were no blood bath shoot outs at the OK corral, etc.

    Sorry jack, the facts and stats totally support the pro gun side, much to the chagrin of you who try so hard attribute characteristics and information that doesn't exist.

    Mass shootings are included, they fall under "homicide". Suicides are not mass shootings, they aren't homicides, they aren't violence against anyone else. Of course, it matters none that people kill themselves by other means than just guns and if they didn't have a gun, they're do it via another means anyway.

    Suicides are not gun violence, they are acts of mentally unstable people.

    More legally carried guns do, in fact reduce violent crime as evidenced by the reduction in violent crime in every state that has enacted CCW laws.

    Of course, you hoplophobes never ever want to hear that and do anything to twist and squirm to avoid the facts.

    Um...yes. :)

    homicides by gun are around 8000 a year, way down.

    a wise idea, though I have never tried.

    Starting, of course, with Election Night 2008....

    there was a FORTUNE to be made in pandering to the Paranoid Right in America. Over-priced gold coins from "Goldline"....."Food Insurance" and other "prepper supplies".....and of course the Gun Manufacturers in their perennial conspiracy theory claims that a Democratic President is going to "take away yer guns!!!!!!"

    and the Paranoid Right fork over their hard-earned money....and the Hucksters laugh all the way to the bank and PRAY that a Republican is NOT elected in the next Presidential election.

    Better also load up on gold coins from "Goldline".....Glenn says the US dollar is going to collapse "any day now".

    Also I'd get a year's supply of MREs and "Survival Seeds" for the "coming food shortages when gas goes to $7 a gallon under Obama's energy policies"

    Oh, and buy plenty of copies of Ann Coulter's new book to read in the Doom Bunker while America falls into Apocalyptic "Mad Max" Anarchy outside.

    I prefer my Al Gore-approved global warming defense shelter. Keeps out all the global warming, while keeping me informed.

    No, actually suicides are considered gun violence, and account for a large percentage of fatalities with a firearm. Purposeful harm to yourself is actually illegal, and that is why a person can be held without their consent if they are a danger to themselves. It's commonly known as a "Baker Act".

    And unlike taking your life with a gun many other ways of ending your life gives someone a better chance to survive and seek the help they need to get over whatever it is that drove them to such a desperate act.

    Didn't notice that gun suicide rate going up did ya? Oh that's right, killing YOURSELF with a gun is just dandy.

    Beck predicted the economelt to the month, and anyone smart enough to invest in gold in 2007, when he recommended it, had enjoyed a massive profit by 2012.Obama has tried numerous plans to reduce Americans' 2nd Amendment rights. Try reality.

    Every month should be a record high for gun sales.

    How could I have not of noticed it. I don't blame the gun for the suicide, just like I don't blame the sun if I get sunburned, and in fact if you're bound and determined to kill yourself then the gun is a blessing.

    Just like you don't blame the mass shooter for killing multiple people. You blame the victims for being in the way of the gun owner's bullets.

    By gun nuts you mean criminals/gang bangers who aquire guns illegally right?
    If not, how many of those 30,000 deaths were at the hands of legitimate gun owners?

    When did I say that? Totally stupid remark. Is that all you've got left? Running on empty just as I thought. You're about to start crying aren't you,
    after you claimed "it's complete twaddle" thereby proving to everyone you didn't have a clue.
