Disregarding the first one---since it's not a complete (firearm), the rest look very nice. I've been a firearm forum member for a while, and on several forums now. The term guns is starting to annoy me a little bit. I'd like the forum members here to attempt to tell me why I feel this way. My terms relating to firearms are---firearms (all firearms in general), revolver, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. Maybe there is something from way back in my rather short military career that begs of me not to ever term firearms as guns. I'm by no means an extensively educated man, but I view the term 'guns' as a somewhat improper term and maybe an English slang. Remember---this was re-enforced in the military that I never had a 'gun' but a rifle. "This is my rifle, this is my gun----this one's for killing, this one's for fun". Am I off base here? AWOL? Am I expecting too much? "Hey man---I got a gun!" OR "Listen----I've got a pistol here!" Until further notice from the forum in general, I'll continue to think of the term 'gun' as an unacceptable, incomplete, slang generalization of firearms as a whole. I thank you for any input, but the truth be told---you're either with me or against me. LOL!

I grew up shooting toy 'guns' cap 'guns', etc. So that is where I think I first got used to it...has always been that way. Even in law enforcement it is acceptable and common ex:
Officer: "send me a cover officer, I got two down at gunpoint"
Disptach: "units respond to cover 461, he has 2 out at gunpoint"
or
Dispatch: "S.O. units, have a report of a man with a gun at Piggly Wiggly...10-0 caution"

No one inserts 'firearm' in there. Maybe it is slang...when we got ready for a raid, we would always 'strap your guns on' and go...I think maybe its just the military connotation you have with it.

Besides, where I come from...we say 'Get Your Guns Up'...right TX1911?

Give 'em hell big red!

That being said, "gun" is just the vernacular, or slang. It's been around longer than any of us. In the old days, you never heard about pistol slingers or firearms slingers, but rather gunslingers. It's an over-broad generalization, but one that is deeply rooted in our history, like it or not.

I'm sorry but I find that kinda ridiculous that you would come ruin someones thread for a useless argument such as that. I think you need to find something better to do with your time. BTW, I think ATF might disagree with you about the AR lower being a firearm. I seem to remember having to register my AR lower when I bought it.

Anyway back on subject..... Those are some great looking rifles, I would love to own that AK!!

The serialized part, the frame, is considered to be a firearm by the ATF. Everything else is merely a collection of parts.
