    I'm thinking of buying a gun. Not to shoot myself. But to see if I can get good at it. My dad had a gun.

    I just need a hobby in my life. Guns can be fun. I only shot my dad's gun a couple times. Maybe target practice can get my mind off the way I feel, angry, isolated, and desperate.

    Hi pit. Maybe a bb gun might be a good option if you want to do some target practicing. I have a bb gun but I don't use it much. It looks very real too.

    My Dad said that about getting a gun. He went through the background check and the classes required and got his permit to carry. The thing is he did end up threatening suicide and they took away his gun and permit.

    Please be careful if you get one, especially if you feel suicidal. I'd hate to hear you're no longer with us. That being said target practice is fun even if I can't hit the broad side of a barn. lol

    you probably wont value my way of thinking but i dont think thats a good idea
    thats just escaping the problem; according to what you said about your main intentions
    and in any moment; although blowing off brains IS a very hard decision; you could end up taking it and eventually deadly harming you

    If u want a gun, get a paint ball gun. I've always wanted to get one and shoot out all those red light camera's :biggrin:

    The paint ball gun sounds like an option.

    We always had guns-clean & locked-up. I've thought about getting one but we have no security problems here, and if I tried to use it to off myself it would be a big mess. Guns aren't a sure way, as isn't anything else.:unsure:

    Sounds like a good idea, too.

    I can see how target practice can give you something to do that might help with your mentality... Why don't you give boxing a thought?

    I have a bb gun and a co2 gun and it helps just shooting at stuff. A real gun would probably be too risky. God knows that I´d do with it when i´m in rage.

    Push ups and a boxing bag are also a good way to get rid of negtive thoughts, when you´re really exhausted from working out you just lie down and feel great.

    Give it a go :D
  13. I'm not gonna TOUCH that one!


    (seriously - I do wish you good luck in finding a hobby. I think it's grand idea!)

    Try getting a bow and arrow. There are some REALLY cool ones out there and they are a lot of fun to practice. I just got one for Christmas and it's a blast!

    Haha! If you met me, you'd change your mind! I'm not exactly a 6-5 brickhouse.

    I'm 5-9, average build, and introverted. I don't even like touching people, much less punching them. I'd rather push a button to punch somebody.

    Ha, wimpy, I know.

    Oh God I'm laughing my butt off here. I've a bad cold so I'm dealing with tears and snot (sorry for the picture lol :eeew:) runnng down my face.

    Not laughing *at* you my friend, only the scenerio, thanks for confirming my fog is lifting and I can still laugh at things.

    Now for the semi-rant, eh?

    Off all the thousands of cool, engrossing hobbies out there for a man feeling "angry, isolated, and desperate" you choose...

    a gun

    You choose shooting as a hobby and distraction.

    :trampolin Now that's Comedy Central material. Pit, heard of Larry The Cable Guy? He could use that one to hilarious effect. lol :)


    BB guns, boxing, bows, arrow <---fuck that shit, I'm for the paintgun.
