This. After re-reading his posts, I'm convinced he's not in the US.

I'm 19...I asked to get a shotgun when I was 12 to start shooting clays...MANY people said I wasn't ready for guns etc. etc......

I got my shotgun on my 13th birthday and whatta ya know...I shocked everyone by being responsible....You can act as crazy as ya want but when you pick up that gun, carry it like your disarming a careful and make the right choices...

through shooting at a young age I learned to be responsible in other areas.

If you want a gun, educate yourself about them first and realize the potential they hold.

Not sure anyone here knows much about legal gun ownership in Costa Rica.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

FWIW- Moving Firearms, Guns, Rifles, Shotguns or other weapons to Costa Rica
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

To make it easier, I'm not an US resident, neither I'm under the jurisdiction of the laws of the US. But a diufferent country.

In Costa Rica you're required to pass a psycological test every three years, to own and keep a weapons license. And the course for weapon handling is called firearms manipulation course. Also, Basic Police training course teach you the same. Always, as long as you're costarrican resident. And yes, I've to check on a determined weapon first before trying anything. Last years we had a couple of troubles regarding AK's (thanks for the war, Reagan) which are common almost everywhere, and smuggled Five-Seven. Actually, AK's issues are common headache for our local authorities.

Default What does an insane person look like......

Just remember that guns and poisonous snakes have something in common. You must have total respect for both or you will end up DEAD.........I won't show you my photo so you'll have to figure out on your own what they look like.......

I feel for ya makarov. If only we had sanity tests for politicians there would be so much less problems in the world.

If your language skills are any indication, Makarov, you seem perfectly stable to me. My opinion about gun ownership is that almost everyone should have a firearm. More guns, less crime, period!

The more people around us who are armed, the less likely someone will commit a crime. The fear of a wild west shootout is just poppycock.

Follow your Costa Rican laws and then buy any gun that floats your boat.
.45acp, .40 S&W, 9mm, .38 Spl, .380 acp, 22lr
12 gauge, .223/5.56x45mm, 30-30 Winchester
