    Actually, it is a Firearms Forum. Minor technical difference.

    Why do you ask? :confused:

    "This is my firearm,
    This is my gun.
    One is for Freedom,
    The other for fun."

    I thought it was "this is my rifle, this is my gun..."? Pyle?

    I think the OP must mean:

    Why don't we have more "9mm vs. 45acp" and "Glock 26 vs. Highpoint C-9" threads?

    Or threads like "If you could be any gun, what would you be and why?"

    One of the Marine Corps sayings (quoted by a Marine):
    This is my rifle
    This is my gun
    With this I kill people
    With this I have fun.

    An aside: years ago a "gun" was a firearm without any rifling. Today, almost anything goes.

    The word gun was used when referring to a cannon. The correct name for the big things that go boom on navy ships is gun's. Like he said a gun did not have riffling. Things have changed

    Really? Tell that to the M-1 Abrams.

    Now, which is better, the AR-47 or the AK-15? And if I had to have one which would it be? Or maybe the Mossberg 870 or Remington 500 shoty... And then, would you use fine birdshot or the largest buckshot for home defense!?

    Or replace them all with a Mosin-Nagant -- the best gun ever made for everything ever since the Soviets stole the Makarov pistol and ammo from the Germans.
