Ah yes, a thing of beauty 'tis. I think the Desert Eagle in .44 Magnum is my ideal "for fun" handgun.I don't own any. The closest I've had is a BB gun which are cool always. But, I really do love guns yes.
The desert eagle .50
If there were ever any doubt that you were an INTP, it is now gone. I do this all the time. :crazy:^ Two of my favourites amongst pump action shotguns. But there are many I like.
Heheh, well, I like to take my rifles out every now and again, but ammo isn't really cheap. So yes, they mostly sit in the corner and look cool. But they're there, with some ammo reserves, should I ever need them.I used to go hunting with a friend back in the day with a .22 air rifle and I've had a go on a 410. Exhilarating. But I must say I'm more into the look of a gun than firing it. I think :tongue:
Brilliant. If you find the mechanics fascinating, compare the mechanism of the Desert Eagle pictured above to that of most other automatic pistols. Also, I lol'd.Don't have a collection, but I do find them fascinating in their mechanics. What they do on the other hand, I have no use for. Though I might get a permit if I go back to the States ...or to Australia. I've heard Kangaroos are tasty y'see and so if I... *tangent*
Here we go. :crazy: This just about sums up why I like firearms. I suppose I'm a bit more paranoid than other INTPs (though paranoia really isn't the best way to describe it...). I want to be prepared in the case that I ever would need to defend myself or my family. Also, I live in a rural area, so I can pretty much take my 91/30 out back whenever I like, as long as I have the ammo. I suppose that would give me more incentive to own than if I lived in a city or something, where one must go to an indoor range to fire their weapons.I find guns highly fascinating on several levels. They are interesting mechanically, and aesthetically pleasing to my eye. But beyond that the idea of gun also is appealing from the power it signifies, the power to survive. And yes, I am talking literally here as survivalism is one of my many interests. I'd love to own a good AK variant, a compact .22 like the Marlin Papoose for survival purposes and or target practice(.22 ammo is cheap), and a Mosin Nagant for fun.
And the ammo is expensive. Ah well, I'm a big guy. Like really big. 6'2" 350 lbs. Mesomorph. I have huge hands. That's why I'm saying that it's ideal for me, though I realize that to you it just seems like wankery. :crazy: Oh yeah, and it can also do this:I should say, the .50 Desert Eagle is rubbish. Have you ever fired one? It weighs as much as a small rifle, you can barely fit your hands around the grip and it's rounds are expensive as hell. I can see no other practical use for this other than for the coolness as it is about as inefficient as they come.
