To get a match grade Garand you're looking AT LEAST 1000 dollars. You can find some in decent condition around 800 though. But yeah, new ones with newer parts and custom fabrication can be from 1200- over 2000. You can get a new M1A carbine from the Springfield armory in several configurations(brand new rifles) for around 1800.
BUT IT SHOULD BE!!Cooter said:It should be fine. Everything is perfectly legal and this isn't a gun control thread.
Well, really it takes about 2 seconds to change a clip, so the law is just to make it seem like politicians are doing something to prevent massacres. In real life if someone is determined to shoot alot of ammo off it isn't exactly going to slow them down.itxaka said:Probably because if someone with a gun/rifle/whatever goes nuts and starts shooting at people it will be less damaging with 10 rounds that with 30/40/whatever.
Yeah CCW licenses allow people to carry concealed (most states allow open/unconcealed carry, just look at the controversy about the obama town halls), self defense laws vary from state to state, some indicate Duty to Retreat, some allow Stand Your Ground, also Castle Doctrine applies in alot of states.Cindres said:I don't get CCA (is it CCA?), you can legal carry it as long as it's hidden, does it mean you can shoot to kill in self defence?
Will the majority of gun owners ever actually shoot or even draw their gun in self-defense? I would guess not, but like they say, its better to have and not need than need and not have. Also firearms are much more than just for self defense, they are fun as a hobby and a sport.Bisnic said:Are guns for home protection a necessity in the US or what?

Cooter said:So I'm finally in a position to purchase a gun. Check this sweet thing out.
It's perfect for what I want, a small weapon easily concealed for those late nights coming out of the casino. It shouldn't be more than $800 after the gun, bullets, holster, concealed permit, and registration.
Anyone one own one and have any thoughts they would like to share?
if you're looking for home protection that last firearm you'll want is any kind of handgun or rifle. Shotguns are you're best bet for home defense.MWS Natural said:Funny this thread popped up because I have been thinking of purchasing a handgun for home protection and range use but didn't really know where to start. A friend of mine bought a 9mm from the gun store for $199 I didn't realize they come that cheap! Not sure if I would go that low but I don't want to go over $400 for one. Any suggestions?

He, I have an Arisaka...Sweet firing gun. The recoil is amazing light for it's round (slightly different 30.06Zyzyxxz said:can't go wrong with a glock.
I'm not really into guns for self protection but I just wanna own them for collectors sake and to take them out to the range once in a while.
I have to say after playing so many WWII games I must get a M1 Garand sometime in my life

I live in Canada, and no one in my family have guns at their house for home protection (as far as i know) because we have no need of them. I'm sure it's the same for alot of other canadians. I guess crime isn't as big in here thankfully.

Not really useful for self-defense but it's accurate and fun to shoot. Also it just has a nice feel to it, it's a solid, precision-machined chunk of metal.
