Well my buddy just bought his first gun from Bud's. I've been working on him to buy a gun for the last 2 years or so. When we first started talking about guns and the 2nd amendment, he was of the mind that it was to protect hunting. Obviously he was influenced by the antis but in general wasn't interested in guns at first. I told him right off the bat the 2nd amendment had to do with protecting us from the gov. and for personal defense. He understood it immediately and became receptive to gun ownership.

He just bought a new Italian made Beretta 92FS. He is stoaked!

I'm posting this to encourage others to talk to their friends who don't own guns. The most effective way we can influence gun rights IMO is to "convert" someone. Once they are a gun owner, they (should) become more aware of gun issues and are more likely to vote for people who are on our side.

Now its time to work on my other friend. He wants a gun but can't "afford" it. time to make him see that your first gun is the most important investment you can make! :13:

Congrats to your friends first gun.. The first is the most important. Mine was an RIA 1911 tactical in .45. Now I'm hooked and my Local Gun Store is loving me. :gunsmilie:

Am I the only person who thought this was going to be about a little thenodnarb jr?:)

Even better, I'm assuming a junior would be gun guy, converting an adult is a lot harder. And even though it's not a GOVERNMENT MODEL, he still gets a thumbs up for a government model.

Hearty handshakes all 'round!

Good Job OP, I converted a co worker at work. I sold him a Sig P229 for a steal. Now he is hooked, and also spoiled and wants me to sell him a 1911 for the same kind of bargain. Lol.

Thanks. He's already admitted that this is only his FIRST gun. I think he wants a 1911 next. :43:

Oh, and thenodnarb Jr. is still a couple years away. But rest assured he/she will be :63: by grade school.

I thought of that, but he wants a shotgun. I can't blame him. If I see a good deal an a used 870, i'll probably pick it up, and sell it to him. Well, I need a pump myself, so maybe if I see TWO good deals :D

Hows that mosin shootin for ya?

I have not shot it yet, only been to the range once since I met you and that was a .22 day. Next time out I am going to take it, it has a nice bore so it should do fine. Well if you see 3 good deals on an 870 let me know, I am in the market too.;)

I took my friend to BLM and let him at it with all my toys. He had a blast. I've been trying to get him to buy a gun ever since. He's saving up. Can't wait until he gets his own. Another one converted.
