Population of Australia: 23 million

Number of long guns bought back in Australia: 650,000

Cost of buyback: $500 million

That's $769 per gun - it's an average so let's assume some owners were like Chuck and got thousands for their special weapons.

Population in USA: 319 million

Number of guns in USA (includes handguns): 357 million

There are no good numbers on handguns vs long guns but let's assume long guns are 50% since that's how the sales break down as you look back over the last 5 years. So assume 180 million long guns and if you want to do a buyback of all long guns in US then it will cost you:

$138,461,538,461.54 

That's $138 Billion Mike.  And that leaves all the handguns in place.

Good luck with that one.

I was at the local mom and pop gun store on Saturday and it was jam packed with people.  Usually it dies down for them after firearm deer season but it isn't slowing down at all.  I was still in and out in 30 minutes.

I picked up a Ruger 9e, I'm taking my wife Friday to get a .380 or 9mm of some sort.

The size is right but it's too nice for her. It will look like shit within a month.  

As with everything else in her world, she wants the best but wont maintain it on her own, any flaws that come up will never be her fault.  That's how she rolls.

I'm not going to teach her anything about it since she has a hard time listening to me.   The local sportsman's club has a woman's only deal on the weekends so I'm pawning her off on them for a few Sundays.   

Its taken me years to get her to finally do this.

LOL really? Who cares what it looks like. One of my fav rifles I used to field had a busted rail on it where I had to literally bash an ACOG off it.

Hey Mike, question for you on the taxing of ammo or elimination of "assault" weapons.

See the photo below.  One of the rounds below is standard for an M16 / M4 (standard issue for US military) and one of them is standard for a hunting rifle.  Which one should we eliminate?

TRICK QUESTION. Need to see if there is a NATO headstamp to know which is military. Military and civie versions of both those calibers.

If you eliminate both then there is no longer a sports hunting industry.  The point is, the longer one is actually for a .30-06 which is one of the two most common caliber for deer and other larger game hunting.  But it's also more powerful and more likely to pierce body armor.

Chuck of course is right, the .30-06 was used in Brownings (BAR), Springfields, and other rifles. My Dad has two old .30-06s that he used for hunting, one was a Japanese rescue that my Grandfather picked up in the war and one was a US surplus.

Who cares?! A pristine gun is just a gun that is never used. 

I owned a M&P Bodyguard for all of 72 hours. That was a mistake. 
Still liking the Shield for a daily. Although that 938 is tempting.
