Gun

Recommended Posts

It may not be my country, but fortunately it is not up to you to decide who replies to what thread - that is a job for the moderators and unless you are undercover then you are obviously not one. While the OP may not like the replies the fact that people are replying keeps the thread alive, and so far he has not asked for it to be closed.

I am allowed to give my opinion that what the OP is doing is, at the very least, not in the spirit of the law. He is using his wife to get his hands on a firearm. His wife seems to have managed perfectly well without one in the past, but for some reason she now needs protection - I'm sure there is a story there. I believe that this way of obtaining a firearm is irresponsible, and I don't think that irresponsible people should be allowed to have guns.

No sir, I am not a moderator on this forum.

But I am mindful of simple forum courtesy.

Although the OP has not asked that the thread be closed... he has stated numerous times that he does not wish to debate "gun control" issues and feelings in this thread. With that in mind, I would think you should respect his wishes and get off your bandwagon!

As I said before, start your own gun control thread.

Perhaps you should read the thread before replying. The OP clearly states, I should have all the legal documents done by the end of this week to own a gun in my wife name.

Perhaps it is you who should read the thread (carefully), and quit substituting your words for his.

I think you understand me. The main point is that I can not own a gun but my wife can. So the logical step is to buy it in her name. The application has been done in the local city and is now gone to Bangkok for approval. It should be back next week. With the official gun permit we can purchase the gun and I believe that we are supposed to register it again in the local city. It’s all nice and legal.

In respecting the OP's wishes, this concludes any further "debate" on the subject, from me.

Well, that's one thing we can all be thankful for.

You never answered my question about how you obtained your all-knowing skills.

I don't care what the OP's wife is thinking...I just want to know what MY wife is thinking.

I need a little help here.

'This is typical in all the hundred or so threads about guns since the beginning of Thai Visa. Anyone that looks will find them all cluttered with anti gun babble from those who in all likelihood are clueless about Thailand, Thai Society, and what goes on outside of beer drinking and whore mongering at unregistered sleezy little bars where they can pay some poor economically disadvantaged individuals to listen to their unwanted opinions and feel superior for doing so.'

Not superior or clueless about Thailand (is that the point ?). The OP seeks to procure a gun in his wife's name to "provide security to his home", and that's ok if the wife protects the home and the OP has no intention of using the gun, since his wife is the licensed gun holder, (i.e the gun is secured at all times and under the supervision of his wife).

Is that seriously, really, what would happen ?

Otherwise it's a manipulation of the regulations to get hold of a gun by devious means and hence the questioning of the OP's request on the method of buying a gun in Thailand.

Outside of the 19th century Wild West there is good reason for "anti gun babble" as witnessed by the mass shootings in USA, UK and elsewhere even with some kind of gun control.............. something we should all be considerate of :o

I don't believe that I claimed to know what the OPs wife was thinking, and assuming that your wife is Thai also I wouldn't do the same with yours either.

Probably right.

just my tuppence.........if guns are so expensive here then how the hel_l do all these kids in gangs afford to buy them and where from ??.....ive read about and seen on the news reports of lads in there teens and sometimes early teens and at school still being involved in shootouts or been caught in possesion of 9mm autos etc at police checkpoints.

i dont see why some people here are so anti gun owning here for home protection as there are a lot of bad people here that own guns and many bad people breaking into houses with knives so if someone wants to protect themselves then good for you....i for one wouldnt like to have 3 guys break or try to break into my house carrying knives or clubs etc......i would like a chance.!! and for those who say move to a safer neighbourhood ..ok i will....are you gonna buy my house so i can do just that.if onlylife was that simple.

Your claim that I am substituting my words for his is nonsense. In each case where I have quoted the OP I have cut & pasted his words - this is easy for anyone to see. There is always the temptation when providing a weak argument to try and prop it up with wild acquisations and this is what you are doing here. Withdrawing your 'services' from the debate seems a far more sensible approach, because the only place your posts can go from here is name calling.

You are correct in this instance, and I retract my statement.

An unfortunate use of words, in the OP's opening post.

Nonetheless, I still feel that the "anti gun" rants are out of place in this thread.

Done.

Guns are expensive if you buy them legally because of the taxes paid on them. There are also a lot of weapons which are owned and traded illegally - they are substantially cheaper. In my area there is military-type hardware available which I understand comes over the Cambo border and is sold in the villages.

For information, what is the average range of the average gun average people may own?

For example, I practice shooting in my backyard, I miss the target, at which distance my bullet is still lethal ?

Yeah......Im getting so carried away and excited by all these interesting and excellent posts :D so I'll probably buy a gun magazine (legally) when in Ubon nest time. :D

Not that my wife plans to but a gun legally in her name (with my money) :o ...............

but if we have any burglars/bad people threatening us one day.......... I'll try to show them some pics from my magazine and hopefully they'll run away :D

If the threat of attack really is sufficiently high enough for you to deem it necessary to have a gun in the house, i would say moving home would be one of the simpliest decisions of your life. Might not be practical, but with what's at stake, how could you not?

I want a gun for home protection. A copal of rounds in the air will scare off an intruder. Shooting an intruder would be of last resort.

This one statement alone tells me that you have NO experience and or training in the proper use of a firearm.

My friend...

Go buy it...if you must.

A wheel gun, not a semi automatic.

But please seek out professional training prior to using it.
