I own several hand guns and rifles. I haven't taken them out in 5 years or so.

I hope you coated them with oil before you put them into storage, otherwise they may rust to the 5th circle of hel*

KNIVES, SWORDS, TOMAHAWKS, PICKAXES, plus the good ol' break barrel.
The first gun I shot was a side by side 12 gauge, my first rifle was a .22 lr with a bolt that loaded through the stock. To this day, my greatest joy and utmost respect is given to break barrels, and bolt actions. A man never forgets his first time shooting a gun.

But for me, I'd only consider owning like 3 guns, a shotgun, a rifle, and a revolver.

Knives and Tomahawks are what's in for me.

Before we had our 2nd amendment rights severely infringed upon in the socialist state of Maryland, October 1 2013, the 2 questions regarding mental health were
Question 7
Have you ever spent more then 30 consecutive days in any medical institution for treatment of a mental disorder or disorders? (If a physicians certificate, issued within 30 days prior to the date of this application, certifying that you are capable of possessing a regulated firearm without undue danger to yourself, or to others, is attached to this application, then answer n/a for not applicable.)
And question 8
have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective or have you been committed to a mental institution?
Number 12, "shortened"
Did you answer yes to above, if so you are prohibited from purchasing / possessing a regulated firearm, if you currently possess contact Maryland police,
If I had to answer a yes to any of the questions I would sell it to a shop and get money for it instead of giving it to the police to be destroyed with no payment for it and possible jail time, for not knowing.

A friends wife who is schizophrenic was able to buy a pistol years ago with a dr note.

No one knows how the new law will work, it might be implemented like the marijuana tax stamp act of 1935, may have wrong year, required a tax stamp but no office to provide it was ever created, some hippies finally made a big enough fuss, and i think it was repealed and marajuana made illegal, late 60's.
The current fear in Maryland is the new law requires training proficiency license for each purchase, mandatory insurance, plus fees all having to be renewed every 4 years, the bill is difficult to read, very long, and no one seems to have been able to interpret it, it is rumored that any mental condition especially PTSD will be used to prevent ownership,
Gov fears retired military, especially ex snipers, our soldiers risked their lives for this nation and it repays them by making or attempting to make it difficult or impossible to exercise their 2 nd amendment rights.

My goal is to get out of this state, and move to one that doesn't attempt to squeeze everything they can out of its citizens while attempting to remove their constitutional rights. In any way they can, they even tax us for rain.
If you value your savings, income, property, and freedom, never vote for Martin OMalley, Maryland's socialist governor, for any office / position, ever. Government or non government.

I couldn't find anything in PA law that says you can't own a gun if you voluntarily commit yourself. You may have had your rights infringed upon.


If you have been officially prohibited from firearm posession and you have no other mitigating factors other than what you stated in your post, I would seek out a good (by which I mean legally impartial) civil rights attorney.

Be wary of any rumors spread (by anyone) regarding firearm rules as well as their intentions and consequences. It is almost always wild speculation, at best. That goes for everyone; it doesn't matter which "side" you are on.

In the UK Hunting permits can be purchased through the Post Office.
There's no restriction against people with AS doing this.

We get them in hunting stores and outfitters in Montana here. I'm an amazing hunter....I'm just a really, really, bad finder. Hunting frustrates me, the only time I can find a deer it's on land I can't shoot it on.

I have not hunted in a while as I just end up exhausted, cold and empty handed. I'm mostly just a gun collector now, as my hunting trips just become bullshit sessions with my buddies talking instead of shooting.

My country Poland has on of strictest gun law in Europe, to have gun you need weapon permit, issued by the local police Chief, but to get a firearms license you must pass a medical and psychiatric evaluation, , and even then it is not guaranteed that you will get a permit. because the final decision is made by local Chief of Police.

In Poland, the Gun premit is issued is 3.5 per 1000 inhabitants.

From what I know the most liberal right to bear arms in the world is the United States and Switzerland, From what I know the most liberal right to bear arms in the world is the United States and Switzerland, I know that in Switzerland every solider is required to keep gun in home. As for America i hear that possession of gun is constitutionally guaranteed. I wonder if this also applies to Aspies as well :D


I have a stepmother who worked in law enforcement, she said, typically, you'd have to be convicted of a felony or found mentally ill by a court in order for those rights to be null and void. Usually, if found to be mentally ill, it would only be if you were dangerous to others.

I just recently bought my first gun out of necessity of protecting my livestock after my whole life of having always said I don't ever want a gun. It's a little Marlin Model 25n, a bolt action .22.

Welcome to gun ownership
Are squirrels or rabbits attacking your livestock?

Hope after you get use to it you get something bigger. I imagine it’s wolfs or coyotes doing the attacking or maybe cougars? 22lr won’t do anything to them other then piss them off. If I had livestock and they got attacked I’d get atleast 7.62x39 and a handgun. Maybe a shotgun especially for bears.

(Just concerned and offering advice)

Lots of people hunt coyotes with .22s. My targets are fox, coyote, possums mostly and my .22 will do the job just fine. I appreciate your concern though but if you do research lots of people really do hunt coyote with .22s.

Sure you don’t mean .223? I’ve never heard of anyone hunting with .22lr except for rabbit sized stuff.

I mean a .22. It's really not uncommon for people to hunt coyote with a .22. It's illegal at least in my state and I definitely don't recommend it as I feel it's unethical but I've even heard of people taking down deer and bears with .22s, it's all about knowing where to shoot and being close.
I'm not claiming to know everything about this subject but I know that much. Google "Coyote .22" and read some stories about people hunting them.

I'm not really allowed to possess guns as I don't have my PAL at all, but my dad has a .22, 9mm, .17 Rim Mag iirc, and we have a Shotgun

.22, 9mm and Shotgun are all fun to shoot

I also have a Pellet gun, but again, technically not mine

I also have a Recurve Bow I got for Xmas a few years or so back that I still have yet to use even
