    Not likely to be any pics because it would be illegal here, I would make the wooden parts too. I've always thought about making a sten gun or tommy gun or some classic piece of firearms history.

    I remember going to a museam down in the republic somewhere and they had weapons from the free state's independence struggle with the brits and I couldnt believe the size of some of the really old revolvers, I dont know if they were webley revolvers or what but they were massive bits of solid metal looking things and the shells which they fired looked massive too.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but weapons used to be very big and heavy. Warriors must have been extremely strong to be able to wield them in battle, and, accordingly, must have had to train extensively. Just another thing we lack in our society: Skill with weapons.

    I am Southern, and it's part of Southern culture, really. I have nothing against owning a firearm. I enjoy shooting a more organic weapon (I have an affinity for bows), but I'm very sound sensitive, so I do not personally own a gun. I grew up around them, though. My stepfather hunts, and my father and stepmother both carry guns for self protection.

    True I guess, I know that I've seen weapons in museams and I wonder how anyone could have used them and reached the conclusion that they had to be some sort of Mr Universe or ultra strong types.

    I've lived all my life and never seen anyone in possession of a firearm except police who have strict rules about when they can draw their weapon. And if a police officer merely draws their weapon, they have to explain to an independent body, why. It makes for a peaceful civilized society where it is easy to build trust.

    To live under a foreign flag with a gun culture, with as many guns as people, exporting guns to the world, would indeed be a foreign experience.
