    Haven't gotten into black powder.

    I sometimes carry a little SF29 (Glock) 10mm. I also have a full-size Model 20 in 10mm.

    So what hoops must you jump through to permit in Canada?

    It is soo fucked up here, they have virtually made it impossible for ownership. You can't even import replica non firing models if they resemble a current day firearm. They have a pre 1898 law that allows weapons that are not rimfire in, as non firing repls.....but even as a retired cop, there is so much bullshit to go thru, it's not worth it.

    I like it for home protection, but they requre you be a member in good standing of a gun club...........just not worth the bullshit...too much political crap..............oh well, rant on..................Keith

    Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6

    I see. How is crime there?

    What was your service weapon when you were a cop? I'm seeing most of the police forces in the southeast carrying S&W 40's in either Glock or Sig Sauer. I do not as yet have a 40. With the 10mm Glocks a 40 seems an unnecessary addition.

    The world is odd. In Switzerland you carry your fully-automatic weapon along with you when you leave the armed services. Not unusual to see a kid come into the grocery store with a Sig assault rifle slung over the shoulder, who has been out on training.

    i carried the joke of the day, a S&W model 10 .38 police special...couldn't knock down a knat....That is why they prefer the Glock 40, it puts you down and keeps you there with no more than two taps.....I've emptied the .38 on an injured deer and still had to slit its throat.

    (geez are we on the right forum to be talking so red neck?...lol)....Keith

    btw....crime rate on a per capita bases is no dif than the US...drugs are the big root...

    Well perhaps it is we are versatile in many many ways.

    I still have a S&W model 686 (.357). It really is a beautiful revolver. I imagine the thing is 20 or so years old now. It is currently loaded with CorBon 125 gr rounds. It makes quite a mess with wild hog. They wander into the fields on my farm. It's approaching that time when a crew or two will go in and thin them out for me.

    Why do any of you need guns?

    two things: 911 and the local butcher. 'nuff said idiots.

    The first gun I ever purchased was a S&W 686. I still have it and ocasionally take it out for target practice. Anymore, I mostly shoot .45 1911s. They're said to be and "old guy's" gun, but then that's where I'm trending.

    It's hard to beat an old 45 ACP. I play with handloading at times. If you load one that is still accelerating as it clears the barrel and it goes supersonic at just the right time, it gives one hell of a boom. If you don't hit the thug he may run like hell just from the noise. icon_biggrin.gif

    I've run maybe 300 rounds through the Kimber thus far. It's a rather fine 45.

    yourname2000 saidA little perspective, please!

    According to the UN Canada is 3rd in western countries, behind USA and Norway, in civilian gun ownership. About 1 in 5 Canadians own guns, though granted only 2-3% own a hand gun, which has required a special license since 1934. Still, estimates of the number of guns in Canada range from 10-21 million and in a country of 34 million, that's not exactly "restricted".

    My dad owned guns for hunting. One of my condo-neighbours (and facebook friend) has a restricted license and is very proud of her hand guns, which she takes down to the local firing range (we live in Burnaby --Metro Vancouver).

    On the flip side, anyone who gets all moist about gun control and explains ALL of the differences between the gun-crime rates between our two countries as resulting from Canadian policies is doing our citizens a disservice...culturally (as similar as we are to the US) Canadians are different, and one of the differences that manifests itself is in crime stats.

    And....wiki...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Canada


    and I take it you are an experienced criminologist who just happens to know all this. Have you ever applied for a restricted weapon licence? Have you ever tried to import a restricted weapon?

    I get sick of people saying canadians are different. They are no different...they have the same type of crime, organized, gangland, petty, heinous......

    Try your theory on the front lines of the streets and then get back to me with your stats......stats don't mean shit when someone is unloading on you....Keithicon_cool.gif

    A comparison.

    S&W .357 left, 45 Colt middle, and S&W .500 right.

    Back to the topic the OP asked.

    I have a friend who loves his Kimber.

    I bought back my Glock Model 23 when the department went to Glock Model 22's. Pretty much all police agencies in the area have gone to Glock, but with most you can carry whatever you want, you just have to qualify with it. I still say for home protection, a shot gun loaded with buckshot is the best.

    In the states, one of the only good things that Bush did, is he made it federal law that if you're carrying your badge and your ID you don't have to have a concealed carry license. There's also some stipulation for retired LE, but as I'm not there yet, I'm not sure exactly what it says.

    The Glock 22 is a full-size is it not? .40 S&W.

    So basically, go fuck yourself, Keith...just 'cos you're old don't make ya right all the time. My opinion is valid and I'm sticking with it.


    somehow I had the feeling all along you would resort to elementary name calling.....I've been called a lot worse in my day princess, but if your pee pee goes hard acting like a two year old,,,,well you just be my guest,,,,mwahh.................................................Keithicon_cool.gif

    jesus almightyicon_rolleyes.gif..................another educated response.................Keithicon_cool.gif

    addendum: I used to carry a model 57 S&W. .41magnum when I worked the isolated detachments up in the Yukon. It was a long way for any backup if I needed it....The revolvers imho are being taken over by superior fire power in the automatics. They were not popular wih police depts. way back when because it meant retraining everyone in firing an auto. The first time I rapid fired a 9mm, i thought i had grabbed hold of a mini smg.....

    yourname2000 saidAnd to be clear to the OP, I've got nothing against guns...they're tools, like cars or dicks...all of which can kill if not used properly. Personally, I don't like guns or feel the need to own a gun. But I support the responsible use of many things in society, including guns...we don't make screwdrivers illegal because they get used a lot in B&Es.




    You have my blessings ...........icon_smile.gif

    Please help me out, how can anyone talk about loving a gun?

    Is the love the look of it, or the fact that it can kill? icon_question.gif

    it is an art form Vic....if you look at how a well made firearm is made you can appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into it and the science behind making it....if you look at the skeet and trap world, some of those guns, like the italian beretta are beautiful, with stock inlays and gold scripts.....anyone who loves guns because they kill is few and far between.. I love them the same way another may love a picasso or steinway or a corvette...........Keithicon_cool.gif
