If someone were to handle you a pistol (a black, semi auto, with adjustable night sights of course) would you have a pretty good idea how to dissemble and reassemble it?

Army vet, former corrections officer and former gun owner, I would love to get my hands on a semi-auto handgun. I'll tear it down, put it back together and tear up the target with it. :-)

I miss my M-16 and 40.

I would keep it together and start shooting it. :P

With out a doubt. Large frame autos are almost all built on the same pattern. Small and pocket autos are all different though and some are a pain in the rear. My mouse gun is almost a 3 hand job to strip.

Not necessarily. Most are. But not all. Also, while revolvers fire the same, they load very differently.

As you know each weapon is a little different

That's why i said more or less. you'd at least have an idea. You know what a slide is, the frame etc

I could figure it out. I'm better with rifles, but disassembly-reassembly is my bread and butter.

I probably wouldn't even know how to shoot it.

Why's it gotta be black and not chrome, stainless steel, gold, etc. That's racist ;P

I wouldn't take it in the first place. I don't like guns.

so if you get robbed at home you won't call the cops?

I would if I needed them. Yes, they have guns. But they're not leaving them at my house & I don't have to mess with the gun.

Seems silly to me. You're not anti gun your anti certain people having guns.

I'm just anti gun for me and my house.

I wouldn't advertise that too loudly. It just paints an enormous target on your back for burglars.

That's kinda silly jmw. I really hope you're never burglarized because the cops won't be be able to do anything other than document what happened.

Maybe. But we kind of have a reputation in the neighborhood. We're either always home or the whole neighborhood is watching our house when we're gone.

Unless the neighbors are armed, I wouldn't count on them being much help.

I'm just saying it's very unlikely for our house to get broken into. Between the neighborhood (location & neighbors) and someone being home most of the time, we're not an easy target.

Almost definitely. My family reloads ammo && we are always going to shooting range && cleaning the gun afterwards.

It's a good start. The Mosin is a fun gun.

I would. I can take apart and reassemble an M-16 and a Colt 1911 blindfolded.

Nope. I have never even touched a real gun. I would like to learn to shoot though.
