The Green Gun Nut
Welcome to the Guns Section. "Guns" is my little stake in the
for freedom and especially freedom
of the individual. International civil ownership of
weapons/firearms is one of the most significant freedom issues to face
(IMHO). I believe that the right to defend yourself is more
important than freedom of speach, since without the former the latter
cannot be ensured.
may also voice concerns over freedom of speech and the free press and
concerns about minorities of all colors shapes, sizes and beliefs.

About Me and GunsIn
the mid 90's I got involved because the guy I bought my beer supplies
from was a hand gun nut. He quietly communicated his unhappiness
and I started to learn about the issue. Eventually I found
Skeeter. I hosted the NFA web pages for a while (2 years?) but
someone else did the development.
I stayed fairly active up
through the passage of C68 (Firearms act) wrote some letters etc.
Then I kind of got disgusted and left the country (there were other
motivations) though I stayed on the CFD list and tried to keep up to
date then finally disconnected... defeated. Maybe a couple of
years ago I got re-subscribed to CFD and recently GunNutz.
of my personal interests are towards black powder, not that I have any
at the moment, just that's where my interest is. In addition I
have not had or felt the need for any firearm in my home for 25
years. I've never felt physically threatened to that point though
I have been threatened, not surprisingly (or physically), by petty
I do now own two handguns, a .38
revolver that is about 100 years old (really) and my grandfathers .32
ACP. I'm mildly interested in getting another revolver but more
interested in reloading. I'm thinking at the moment of a .357/.38 and
an accompanying lever action shooting the same cartridge. From
that platform I hope in my dotage I'll be able to cast bullets and
generally putter about with loads and bullet shapes sizes and weights.
interesting for me is the muzzle loading & black powder variety of
guns. The Breach loading Sharps I just discovered in the paper
cartridge and 45-xx black powder cartridge variety looks pretty darn
nifty. My beer supply buddy showed me a cap and ball muzzle
loading revolver and that's high on the list also.
On top of
those interests I am an international kind of person. If the
government gets to oppressive here I'll probably just move somewhere
else. I'm well enough off that I can do that, though not without
some sentiment. I get the idea that the U.S. is a safer place than Canada the 2nd
amendment thing doesn't end the struggle of course but it's a
I mention all this because I'm not in
this fight for myself. I'm in it for others who will lose and
can't leave. My dad fought for freedom and I think it would be
darn cowardly for me to just turn my back on my fellow Canadians after
Things you can do.
