I gotta think if you make the gun that fits you and your needs, it's gotta be good.

Bucket, can you cite a case where the so-called tactical appearance of the gun played a role in arrest, charges being brought, a verdict, and/or sentencing? I wanna understand how this works...

Thanks for helping us!
No I cant but it makes sence to me though. Thats why my current 870 will never be a hd gun. I would rather defend my home with a plain bird gun with bird shot vs my now "asult gun" it makes it more like a last resort situation vs me seming like I am prepaired to shoot a guy. What would you rather have the jurry see held up in court? (insert tacticool gn with rails lights and optics here) or plain old (insert fav semi/pump wood furniture with clasic bead site)? it was just an opinion I beleive in take it how you want it.

If you are scared of the black guns, Buckethead, just say you are scared.

With thinking like that, Illinois will NEVER have a concealed handgun permit, so that law abiding citizens can defend themselves.

FWIW, people here defend themselves with AR's and AK's and all sort of high capacity handgun. Its never been an issue in court yet. Fact of the matter is, if someone needs to be shot, the gun dont matter much.

I would just use a regular shot gun with wood stock because if you do need to defend your self the cops are taking the gun for a min.

Couldn't agree more. I don't own any tactical stuff at all. I can see it now, guy is advancing on my family and I, wondering to self.....hmmmm.... Does my stock look badass right now, or, damn should have got the dark earth rails.

Lol, no kidding

I mean really, tactical..

Whenever i was going through all of my training "tactical" meant the way you and your team operated and carried out the task. Tactical wasnt describing your firearms themselves, it was the way that you utilized your firearms during assignments. Now you put a light on a gun "its tactical", you put a sight on your gun "its tactical".." hey lets put these 10 accessories on our guns,we wont really need them all but it looks badass!"

Thats not tactical
