Damn good choice on the Glock! No Glock no care!!!

this thread is getting boring, so i thought i'd spruce it up a little. just did my first mod to my 1911, and i love it. its amazing what just changing the grips does for the look of a gun.

Gun owners are the happiest people in the US

Quote:
Gun owners are the happiest people in the US

The Wall Street Journal reports that gun-clingers are not, in fact, bitter.

According to the 2006 General Social Survey, which has tracked gun ownership since 1973, 34% of American homes have guns in them. This statistic is sure to surprise many people in cities like San Francisco as it did me when I first encountered it. (Growing up in Seattle, I knew nobody who owned a gun.) Who are all these gun owners? Are they the uneducated poor, left behind? It turns out they have the same level of formal education as nongun owners, on average. Furthermore, they earn 32% more per year than nonowners. Americans with guns are neither a small nor downtrodden group.

Nor are they "bitter." In 2006, 36% of gun owners said they were "very happy," while 9% were "not too happy." Meanwhile, only 30% of people without guns were very happy, and 16% were not too happy.

In 1996, gun owners spent about 15% less of their time than nonowners feeling "outraged at something somebody had done." It's easy enough in certain precincts to caricature armed Americans as an angry and miserable fringe group. But it just isn't true. The data say that the people in the approximately 40 million American households with guns are generally happier than those people in households that don't have guns.

The gun-owning happiness gap exists on both sides of the political aisle. Gun-owning Republicans are more likely than nonowning Republicans to be very happy (46% to 37%). Democrats with guns are slightly likelier than Democrats without guns to be very happy as well (32% to 29%). Similarly, holding income constant, one still finds that gun owners are happiest.

Is it bad that I've owned my first gun for less than 2 weeks and I'm already itching for another one? The last thing I need right now is another expensive hobby but this one is creeping up on me real fast

When it hit me many years ago, I went through four different Glocks, a Desert Eagle, a 10mm 1911 comp and a Beretta. I finally found what I was looking for with a couple of Sigs. You just have to get what you want first. That's what I do with most everything I've done since.


P.S. Don't get caught up in wanting to do your own reloads and stay away from the guns shows. That's the best way not to get really sucked in.

larue and aimpoint stuff should be here friday My Sig P6 I'm picking up next week. 1000 rds of 223 I'm receiving next week. New rifle bag comes in, too. This is becoming very expensive...

Anyone recommend a good flip-up rear sight? Troy sights? I have the ARMS garbage on right now.

I have been resisting it for so long, but I think I am going to give in to the Sig this summer...

Finances and school have been holding me back...
