    Maybe I'm just overly scared. Barney the Dinosaur scares me.

    Can you shoot him for me?

    I would think it would be kinda scary to live in a house where one of the people who live there can be around firearms, knives, or such. I would be sleeping with one eye open...

    Then again, Barney the Dinosaur scares me and craft shops scare me.

    Nope, I shot tons BBs in my yard as a kid and I was the one that mowed and never had that happen. Rocks and sticks yes, but never BB's.

    We need to do what we can to not let this happen to our republic. Be vigilant, the powers that be want to do the same here.

    The cops shot and killed a teen last year when he had a realistic looking pellet gun in his hand*. I have a hand gun, like an MP 45 or whatever that you can't tell from the real thing 5 feet away. The way the cops are militarizing and getting trigger happy these days, I'm kind of afraid to take it into the woods. But yeah, I heard a rumor that the locals want those orange plastic tips on the ends of the barrels so's they can tell the difference. Takes the fun out of it for the consumer though, feels like just a toy at that point.

    *Can you believe it's actually possible in today's day and age? I feel like succiety's regressing rather than progressing.

    Watch a movie called "Brazil"... It was done in 1985, and it's pretty accurate in describing what's life like today, esp. the "policing" part.

    I have the same MP BB gun. Kids should not be carrying these things in public, it's just tempting suicide by cop. You seriously can't tell the difference from a distance. Plink in the back yard if your city allows it (ours doesn't), in the country, range, etc. Not at your local park.

    My younger brother is a retired state trooper. On a visit with him many years ago he introduced me to his rifle. That was all it took. So much fun, we plink together at the local range. My daughter in law was as anti gun as you could get. I took the kids to the range for some firearm safety lessons and target fun and it completely changed her view about firearms. It's just a fun thing to do with the family.

    Hard to tell them apart at any distance:

    Every time I see this threads title it brings to mind a certain scene from South Park...
