The only thing I can shoot in my backyard is my airsoft pistols. ; D

Go get your NFA trust done, build some suppressed rifles or handguns, wait for a thunderstorm and you too can shoot in your backyard!

I love that movie, and a classic line.

I've always been more attracted to the darker guns, personally

Beware of the dark side of the force.

It was a transition. I've always been a city boy, and now I live in a rural area where everyone can rebuild their tractor with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver, dig a well, or build something. As I'm an attorney, I get a lot of Green Acres comparisons.

I was born a city boy, but was never raised as one. I now live in a rural area, but am not a property owner and never want to be. Too much responsibility and I'm not interested whatsoever in responsibly, never have been. I live close enough to designated shooting lands, I'm very happy where I am, and also..... Love, love, love my airguns!

I think this is the ticket. Steel guns are much easier to bond with than polymer. But the benefits of a polymer gun are so compelling that I'd rather have several guns, some being steel, but most being polymer.

I like and trust my XDm45, I appreciate my Kahr CM9, but I really <3 my Smith & Wesson SW1911Sc!

Plastic grips are bad enough.
