The best part of this thread is the comments that have absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Actually the topic turned out to be kind of weird. Funny how that works.

I find it dumb you can buy a rifle/shotgun in the US when you're 18 but you can't buy a beer until you're 21. And they wonder why so many gun deaths happen in that country.

Cause 18 year old kids make use of their newly, legally acquired rifles to get their hands on some beer?

It would have to be a female, otherwise, how would you get the antlers through the V-neck? Are you advocating shooting at females?

I've never hunted but I think I would. I could kill small game no problem but a deer is such a majestic animal I might think twice about it. My dad hunts and I eat deer or moose every year and personally I would rather eat an animal that live in the wild than eat an animal that was raised in captivity.

Store bought meat is way more cruel than hunting if you stop and think about it.

And yet I know some guys who can probably pitch cards through small animals, or atleast pierce a deer. Like another guy said, all in the wrists.

Actually depends on which whales I would think.

Mysticetes (baleen whales) eat krill and small fish. They are filter feeders.

Odontocetes (toothed whales) eat different kinds of squid and fish.

I think you hit the nail on the head right there. Complaining about animal cruelty while spending hundreds a month on packaged meat is a tad ironic.

I was thinking the same thing... How 'bout a swim with an orca, IP? Gahead, give it some plankton with your hand.

it depends how you look at it. My father of one of those people who colects guns for it pleasure. A gun like the shown on the top does not have to be using in hunting. There is a certain value to them like everything else. Real hunters have respect for the envoirment and they respect all the hunting laws out there.

If you suppose that the dear is docile, you could probably sow it on him.

I'm not saying they don't.... My uncles are hunters... I've never been into it, but I don't begrudge anyone who does....

I like Deer Meat, Moose Meat, Duck... etc... If you are hunting for food i find nothing wrong with that. If you are hunting for sport, and you do so in a way that respects the environment and all applicable laws; again i have nothing wrong with that either. There are lots of things we do in our interactions with nature that are far, far worse than hunting. I have nothing against it.

Part of that respect that hunters have, is also a healthy respect for the awesome power that these guns have. They need to be carefully handled and are tools of hunting... They require and deserve that respect. In that way, I don't like when they are called "toys" because they are not something people should take lightly or "play with".

Is the gun valuable, yes.... but I wouldn't call it a toy because i don't think its something that you should play with. I don't begrudge anyone collecting guns either, as long as they handle and store them safely and properly.

I had one very scary incident when i was young... about 5-6 years old... thank god noone was hurt..

My uncle who was the hunter had a friend come over and he was showing him one of his guns. My mom was in the next room in the bathroom. My Uncle thought the gun wasn't loaded, but it was still loaded from his last hunting trip. He pulled the trigger and the bullet went right through the drywall and into the bathroom. He shot over my mom's head by about 3-4 inches... It was very scary and she easily could have been killed. My uncle learned his lesson that day about how to properly care for his guns... there has never been another incident. I'm very thankful that my mom wasn't another statistic.

Hopefully other people don't need similar/worse incidents to realize that guns are powerful and are not toys.

Toys is a redneck term used in Saskatcthewan ( not exactly a bastion of culture) for male oriented possessions eg quads, guns, boats etc. It is used derisively by females to empahsize the waste of money. Hunter safety and gun security is a huge issue as you have noted. I always have my guns locked up or within my sight with the ammunition stored separately. I am ambivalent about the sport as I am about eating red meat. I do mostly plinking and range shooting now.

Then you're targetting effeminate males .

Come to think of it, that sounds like a gun-toting redneck thing to do...

I don't know about that. we might be able to subdue a big buck with the possibility of sex with a doe. And then sow the Bruins Jersey on.. and then have Slick Nick shoot at it..

I suppose...

I was very good at shooting targets that were like 100 feet away, and I really liked the sound and feeling of power...

BUT my father wasn't a hunter, he tried it once, but didn't like it... had to kill poisoned/very ill or old pets of parents or friends cause they wanted their sufferings to end... he did it cause he was like the only one who could do it (euthanasia wasn't necessarily a popular option back in the day), but never liked it, cause he just loves animals... he understood the situation, and somehow managed to make the animals 'understand' it too... anyway, tough to phrase this.

Personally, I never had the killer instinct... on a purely technical point, I could easily kill with a firearm, I just don't want to... I understand the primal, primitive instinct hunters, for food, but in this era, I don't understand the need to... we have everything we need in supermarkets, to eat and cook and whatever.

Still, with rules, it's ok, I guess. I absolutely hate animal cruelty, kill it rapidly, don't torture it... or else I wish a predator stumble on you and kill you slowly.

Oh yeah, about poachers and their smugglers friends, IMO they should be shot on sight. They're parasite and because of them some species just keep disappearing... same with ******** who eat exotic, endangered animals, just because they think it's cool...

About the op, nice toy !

Because other people do the killing for us

Incidentally, just outside of Phnom Penh you can 'splode a cow with a rocket launcher for about 200 bucks. Depends on the price of the cow. Really wanted to shoot a rocket launcher, but... settled for the AK47 and M16 instead. Maybe if they put a Bruins jersey on the cow though...
