    Arrow I come to you unarmed…

    …because I live in England, and by law we can’t carry firearms!

    Hi there folks. I happed upon this site purely by accident while looking up pictures of sexy guns. I’ve had an obsession with firearms ever since as a young kid my cousin took me ‘hunting’ with an air rifle. More recently I fell in love with counter–terrorist games like Rainbow Six, Swat 3, Hidden and Dangerous, Delta Force, and suchlike, especially all the detailed information on firearms and their relatively realistic portrayals.

    I keep joining and posting on guns forums, reading all sorts of indepth discussions that go way over my head and leave me searching all over the world wide web for explanations. I love it!

    I like 1911s best of all… and think I should move to America, hahaha!

    Interesting! I’ve actually looked into moving to the States, but you seem to have unbelievably strict immigration rules — and I know no–one there with whom I could go and live. Nor can I offer anything out of the ordinary skills–wise. Hmmm, problematic.

    Incidentally, I’ve always thought Tennessee looks extremely beautiful. Nice folk living there? And how fares the weather there? We have really schizo weather here in Britain on account of our location on a polar front!

    Why come ye hither, Redcoat, your mind what madness fills? In our valleys there are indoor outdoor shooting ranges and gun stores that will take your dollar bills! You shall catch the 1911 fever of which there is no cure and walk amongst us armed and secure.

    Welcome.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome to the group. Its a shame that your country is unarmed. Its my understanding that those from you country that are in the Shooting category for the Olympic must travel outside their own country to practice.

    I'm always amazed how difficult it is to immigrate here, yet 20 million illegals seem to be no problem (for politicians). Anyway, take a holiday and come here and shoot for fun! You'll want to take a big .45 back with you, but sorry.
