|Glock: Rich man's gun|
My limited income source have forced me to limit my gun collection. My financial situation turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I can’t dream of buying more guns, but I do buy a lot of (shotgun) ammunition and practice shooting.
Many of my firearm friends are in buying mode only. I have a lawyer friend who buys a new gun worth Rs. 50,000 after every six months but rarely fires them. Having a large collection of firearms and not regularly using them is like an impotent person having a large harem of fine girls of diverse backgrounds.
Another friend of mine is a Glock collector. Glock is richman’s handgun in Pakistan. It costs around Rs 300,000. This Glock guy keeps his gun locked in his house and never carries them, thinking what if some on robs him of his expensive gun.
A landlord friend’s house was once robbed. The robbers took all their fine hunting weapons (Remington, Churchill and Beretta) along with other loot. This friend now keeps a loaded AK-47U in his entrance lobby.
Then there is my ex-boss and now a friend, who edits an English daily newspaper. Good ex-bosses endup becoming ex-employees’ friends. He keeps one handgun and carries it everywhere except where law prohibits. He is also a regular at Lahore pistol range. He claims to know his weapon like the back of his hand. He is the only person in my firearm friend’s circle, who has a practical approach towards weapons.
To me the people, who buy a weapon but don’t keep it in ready-to-use position, are wasting their time and money. Attribution: I got the idea of this post after reading a similar post at lawyer with a gun.
