Iíll have to agree that itís how you are taught. For 32 years the Air Force beat it into me that my pistol and rifle were my weapons. Remember this one:

ďThis is my weapon this is my gunĒ
ďThis is for Killing this is for funĒ

Iíll be honest with you no matter what we call a firearm be it gun, weapon, bang stick, or whatever the media and anti-gunners will spin it to sound bad. I really donít think itís a problem, but thatís my opinion and opinionís are like A** holes,,, everyone has one.

You say it your way and I'll say it the way I was taught before you were born youngster. Not everything you see in movies is verbatim. Oh, that's right, your with the Office of Special Investigation.... does that mean you ride the short yellow bus because your special? Donít forget your helmet.

The anti's would be rabid even if they were called "peace tools". To Hell with 'em, they can kiss the hind end of a mule. They will always be anti and I can't change them and they won't change. (Unless maybe they're mugged or something. ) Terminology doesn't matter to those whose minds are made up and enthralled by their agenda.

No matter how semantical we want to make the argument, a firearm (in general) is first and formost a weapon. They were not developed to punch paper. They were not invented to put food on the table. They were invented to kill and maim an enemy. All the other uses came along later. I would venture to say more rounds are expended each year outside of the original purpose, but most of those rounds are fired in preparation for killing.
i somewhat agree with this...but then again...as the use of firearms has evolved be it rifle, gun, crossbow, whatever...shouldn't the terminology used to call it? yes orginally it was a weapon primarily but like you said now more rounds are put through them for everything else then that...plus like stated earlier like a pencil, bat, stick, car, plastic bag...the list goes on and on and on...it's just an item...they all become a weapon the moment it's used as one...until then it's just an expensive paper weight...and like i've told and demonstrated many gun-haters...the ones that have never seen a gun in person, held a gun, fired a gun...have only seen them in movies, tv and pictures...firearms are paper wieght, then i take my gun and set it on the table and say "keep an eye on that gun and let me know when it does something bad" that REALLY upsets them lol

Because the reason I carry a firearm is to kill someone before they kill me. I shoot weekly with the express purpose of increasing my lethality. I own 2 "weapons", and the only reason I carry them is to kill someone who has proven that they want to kill me. It's a practical matter from my perspective.

Wow... Slightly uncalled for especially since I was asked to be more open, but that is fine, do what you do. And I just assumed you were quoting Full Metal Jacket... My bad

It is all in the context of the particular usage.

My .30-06 M700 hunting rifle, is my hunting "rifle".

If the SHTF, then that same rifle becomes a long range take-down "weapon".

And who cares what the left leaning MSM (media) does/says. There is nothing anyone can do to influence them except refuse to use their services.

This is how I look at it.

Weapon: firearms of any type used for the sole purpose of removing scumbags from the population of breathing humans. My 308 is a target rifle until I need to kill someone at 800 yards then it is a weapon of precision destruction.


Firearms, Guns, Pistols, revolvers, what ever: The main purpose of these it to hunt, plink or just burn up ammo on the range.

Don't care what anyone else calls them That is how I use the words.

Do you have any idea what my DI's would have done to me if I called the M16 I was issued a gun? That stuff sticks. It carried over into my time as a Marine. Some didn't care but some did and they always seemed to out rank me. I'm on the other side of the page, it irriates me when people lump "guns" together. It's a weapon, a pistol, a revolver, a rifle, etc....not to the extent I would start a thread about it though.
