    Yeah, used to shoot every week :awesome: Only tiny .22s though.

    Aside from that, a glock and a beretta (i've fired) ... but i've seen a whole range of assault rifles (oh, and i've fired an l85!).

    Just incase any of you care, here's a bunch of pics of things i've shot:

    (these pictures are the result of google, not actual pics!)

    Yeah, I was about 10. I was at a caravan park with my friend and we went into the woods and found one, though my other friend threw it away. We reported it to the police who then cordened off the area and asked us individually to say where we saw it, but I dont think they could find it.

    Yes. I was on holiday. My cousin kept it with him to shoot any burglars or wild animals. He shot it once, nearly hit a bird and then his father took it away from him!

    Haha no, he works at a sort of concert hall as a steward, which hosts lots of political conferences. Apparently it was for the Labour conference they'd had there recently or something. He sent me a couple of picture messages of it... it was a very odd thing to look at. It surprised me how big they are as well.

    Yes, my grandad is a farmer and lives out in the sticks in southern Italy.
    So he kinda needs them for his job.

    Yep, fired an AK47, M16, .44 Revolver, Colt SAA, a few other handguns, Uzi, 12 gauge shotgun, MP5 SMG, H&K USC.

    .44 Handgun was probably the most fun to shoot. That thing is ******* POWERFUL, the kick on it is incredible.

    Yes (armed police, museums and so on). But if you mean seeing an illegal gun 'on da streetz', then no.
