    Ruger P95 series
    Beretta 9000S
    CZ
    Makarov

    Those are just the ones that have an MSRP of $500 or less. Of course a decent gunshop (in a non-draconian state) will be selling the pistol below MSRP.

    The sparring equipment is the right choice here simply because you avoid the "it'll be like both of ours, but we'll keep it at my house" situations you get if you pool on one item.

    A couple of weeks ago a CPT here killed a robber with an SKS. He came home int he mid afternoon and his house had been broken into. He noticed some of his guns were gone and grabbed his SKS. The robber actually lived two streets down and came back to get more loot. He was shot and killed by the CPT. No charges filed.

    AUGUSTA - A man who police said broke into a U.S. Army officer's south Augusta house to steal guns was fatally shot Wednesday by the soldier living there.

    Errol Lavar Royal, 29, of Augusta was pronounced dead at Medical College of Georgia Hospital at about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday. Augusta police said he resided with his parents near the burglarized home in the Pepperidge subdivision.

    Capt. Barre Bollinger, an Iraq war veteran, told police he returned from work about 3:30 p.m. and found his house had been ransacked, said Richmond County sheriff's Investigator Thomas Johnson.

    Bollinger told police he entered his bedroom and noticed some of his guns were missing.

    He grabbed his SKS rifle - a weapon similar to an AK-47 assault rifle - and called 911, Johnson said.

    "While on the phone with 911, he sees the suspect approaching his back door. Because he believes the man now is armed with his stolen weapons, Mr. Bollinger fires at him three times," Johnson said.

    Royal was shot at least twice in the stomach area. A search of his residence produced two guns taken from Bollinger's house, the investigator said. The search also turned up some marijuana.

    Neighbors told police that Bollinger, who is stationed at Fort Gordon, generally works from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but occasionally he returns home early.

    There were no plans to charge Bollinger in the shooting, police said.

    plus fucking plus.

    and if you guys can't afford to buy your own fucking guns, you've got no business looking at anything not chambered in 22lr anyway.

    hell, we go shooting together fairly often, and it'd be more cost effective than renting everytime.
    i mean, yeah, we'd probably eventually...wait, nvrmnd-- i'm the only one of the three that can actually accurately fire a gun, so I'll probably eventually buy my own or buy out the other two's share of the gun.

    we're college students. we have more important things to blow $6-800+ on. like scotch.
    mmmm. scotch scotch scotch. i looove scotch.
