      Haven't had a buy-back in Texas yet. When they do, I'm sure all the thuglets, criminals, gang bangers, outlaws and general undesirables will sell their guns back, allowing me to sell off the contents of my gun safe down to a .22 LR and the above mentioned .410 shotgun.

          Speaking of "buy back" programs, I understand that New Zealand isn't "buying" many weapons.
          I believe, last I read, there are several million firearms the government made illegal.
          Seems they've only had like 650+ "sold back" so far.
          Guess they lost them!

            There are probably about 1,000 or more visitors who check out this site daily, and who read our comments in this "Other" forum during their visits.
            When I post a comment, I am thinking of them and not just the person I am addressing.
            They are the "WE" to whom I refer to as waiting for an answer from Bubba and others about whether an armed citizen should feel comfortable without a spare magazine for his carry pistol.
            This thread started out as a comment on the virtues of having an AR-15 for home defense, and I steered it over into "how much is enough" for concealed carry, a reasonable extension of the topic.
            I fail to grasp the reluctance of some to share their opinions in this regard, but prefer to discuss buy-back programs in other countries.

              It could be the fear of ridicule, which now runs rampant on this site, and probably discourages new members from commenting freely on topics of interest.

                Personally 99, you have driven me to not giving a rat’s behind what motivates you to think about anything ! Your hang up on this particular thread is the cause of whatever problem you think I may have. But you are right, I do have a problem, and it is you !!! If you would post 1-2 topics that ‘were’ of interest for new members, that certainly would help ! To others on the site, I apologize for this post, but when I am attacked, I have a hard time crawling into a corner and shuddering !!!

                  "... To others on the site, I apologize for this post, ..."

                  You owe no one an apology.

                  I'm of the opinion that "99explorer" delights in causing discontent and discomfort.
                  Whether I carry an extra mag or not is completely inconsequential to the subject.

                  His reply #65 and #66 are merely attempts to brow beat (bully?) me.

                  1) he (she? xi?) doesn't give a red rat's rear about the 1000's (?) who visit here daily. If so, he wouldn't be such a giant hemorrhoid.
                  2) it isn't his "duty" to steer ANY thread in any direction, that's illusions of granduer and happens quite often with nobody's help.
                  3) his assumption that the thread was about "the virtues of having an AR-15 for home defense" is totally out of context.

                    If the cops can have it? I and You should be able to have it to. End of Story. That's the whole point of the 2nd Amendment. Level playing field, so nobody tries to grow to big for their britches and get all tyrannical on ya. So that they will remain RESPECTFUL and COURTEOUS.

                      I am surprised a buy back location has not been robbed. Hey, they have cash, lite security and they get a pick of some possibly good firearms.

                        John Dillinger got most of his guns, including Thompson submachine guns from police buildings.

                          An AR15 might be a bit much against the average thug robbery/rape/murder attempt......
                          but when is having the odds stacked in your favor a bad thing?

                          Fighting fair is a myth.

                          However, the AR15 and others, sure seem to rile the politicians, that would try to enslave us.
                          The fact that they don't like them (more probable that they fear them).......shows they are just the tool for the job (keeping good men free).

                          Gotta think big picture.

                          Our Founding Fathers did.
                          Doesn't say in the Bill of Rights that you "can keep your deer popper"

                          Don't care how the Fudds try to spin it.

                            ....“Gotta think big picture”.... !

                            Ya know, when we try to imagine what drove the colonists to leave their home lands for a perilous ocean journey to heavens know where and to what ends, there had to be darn terrible reasons involved; oppressive landlords, squaller, lack of rights, not to even mention the tyranny of Lords and most of all Kings !! With that realization, it would take a real imbecile not to understand that the 2A was implanted into our Constitution for the sole purpose of protection from what those colonists were fleeing ! Those who do not understand the importance of this issue, will never accept the true reason for the 2A being not for self defense from the common man, but from those who had power over them ! That terrible oppression was paramount and not forgotten in the writings of our founders and should/must not be forgotten by ‘we, the common man’ of today ! But there are still those who do not accept this as fact and that such things could not happen in today’s world. All we need to understand is the huge growth of government from those days to what it is today, the power it has over us, to confirm the need for this most important amendment and it’s total protection !!
