It is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. Guys are joke around in here about guns and stuff, but I am sure they take it more seriously in the real world. I do.

These threads always get my attention, and I love seeing photos and descriptions of well built machines like these. I've always liked the look of the Glocks, and I have never ever read a bad thing about them (as a product).
Note that I'm not 'freaked out' by guns in a 'liberal' anti-gun way - moreso in a "Jesus, I could kill someone with this" kind of way. And, my 'fascination' with them is definitely as a collector and in appreciation of well built tools.
Yes, you could take someone's life, but you could also save someone's life. That is how I look at it. You walk into a laundry mat and 3 guys are raping a girl. What do you do? Now what do you do with 15 rounds of 9mm in your hand?
Guns are serious business. Think about it though, the last time you were speeding or not coming to a complete stop at a red light, did you think to yourself "wow - I could have killed someone today" ?
Respect, training, comfort, and responsibility are needed for gun ownship just like they are needed for driving a 3000lb missle 70 mph that wont stop for 150ft.
