    New guy joins the ranks

    Greetings from an enormous Norwegian!

    Hi, I'm 24 years old, and come from the second greatest country in the world.
    Why is it only second, you ask? Why, it's because we have to prove that we are members of "approved" nationalized rifle/pistol clubs in order to get weapons that use technology from the 20th and 21st centurys... :-P
    Besides we have a 6 month waiting period, and then an additional waiting period while the papers are being approved.. 3 more months of loathsome waiting. And then we get to choose from a list of 19 definitive versions of a few rifles, no exceptions, and each and every one of those rifles suck in a different but equally damaging way as the other 18.
    Makes me wish I had moved to Oregon in the first place after all.


    I am now trying to decide whether to buy a semi-auto RPK-based extremely low-capasity magazine rifle (5 rounds, oh man..), or a remington 700 on an accuracy international chassis...

    We just had this rodney king-like incident in my city over here, (again...) and the police are just covering it up. The guy died on the spot.
    These are the guys who decide whether I and everyone alse gets to own a weapon or not, while they go around killing people freely by dragging them on their heads down 2 flights of stairs.

    Talk about prioritys!

    Don't you just hate that? Oh wait, you have a RIGHT to bear arms, unlike us over here in old feudal europe. So no goons belonging to any king, can come and kill you stone dead on the street.
    *mumble in dissent*

    So anyways, that's me.

    Welcome! from Virginia, US. I spent some time up in Westfjord (in September). Cold, but it has a unique kind of beauty. Specially with all of those jagged mountains that stick out of the water like dragon's teeth.

    Again, welcome.

    Cool

    Welcome to the forum, from the Suncoast. Here in Florida our concealed carry laws have eased up for the better. Hope Norway and Europe get their act together soon.
