    you can have firearms and a gun licence but there are strict rules...you can't carry them on you or in your car...unless your police or security (some) or if you live in the country on your land...they may seem lax but they aren't to us...it has been years since the gun laws came in and most handed them in...you can still go to a shooting range etc...but owning them is a whole different story

    In australia you can own guns but its not real common and there are strict rules...its just not something we worry about over here
    Sorry, I assumed you lived in the US, didn't see your profile. But australia had more lax gun rules until recently. No idea though if people there still keep their firearms, despite being required to give them up or comply with the rules.

    Mumof2, imagine having to add to your list of parental concerns the question of whether your child was going to play at a friend's house whose parents might not have secured their guns and ammuntion.

    Hawaii is super liberal, yet just the number of unregistered guns here (bought before registration restrictions came out) is more than the number of residents. I think close to 50% of households have at least one firearm.

    Agreed for price range. I'm looking to spend .80 per round on 9mm hollow points as well. FMJs prices were .18 per round to now at least .22 if you can find any (of that caliber).

    you should get HP IMO if this is for self defense. FMJ for practice.

    Edit: nevermind, just saw your first post pictures. lol

    At this point I believe in what Warren Buffet has to say, which is basically that America has been through a great depression, two world wars, and the turmoil of the 1960s. We'll make it through this as well.

    What I think is a danger at this point is focusing too much on the turmoil and not enough on how to build wealth or better utilize existing opportunities. For example, interest rates are at historic lows, isn't now a good time to think about refinancing? Are there any business that have gone under which could be acquired and restarted? What commodities are people going to need in the future?
    Yeah, good point. Kinda lazy to do so. I do have quite a bit of firearms. A lot of mine are considered vintage rifles and shotguns, but I do have modern handguns and revolvers. All collecting dust. lol I dont do ARs though.

    The nicest gun in my collection is one of these. Browning side by side, double trigger. Expensive when released, so very limited in production.

    I was able to find 1,000 rounds of .223 the other day, so there is some still available, but it's currently a bit pricey and not easy to find.
    Firearms are not difficult to find here in the midwest, but the ammo for the popular stuff like .223 and 9mm is getting scarce. You can pick up a box or two most places, but bulk buys are tough to find.
