    quite possibly. I'm not even sure i would give me a licence, but my kids think i'm nice. And they are very discerning. So's my wife, but she hates the gun, she says having it under the pillow is giving her a crick in her kneck, but better sfae than sorry eh.

    You can own a rimfire .22 pistol if you are a member of a target shooting club.

    Cripes! I didn't know that people could own hand guns here!

    Got to say that I wouldn't mind owning a gun. Purely for self defence though.

    6"- jasus that must be tough, I'd say just getting up the kerb is a challenge. On the plus side, you'd be very useful for cavity searches.

    The Guards already have sufficiently armed units. so they are armed, or at least the ones that need to be.

    try rob a bank or something similar and see how long it takes for armed guards to arrive !

    Just for target shooting?

    Are you allowed them in your house?

    Yes to both, providing you have the proper security in your home such as a safe and I think..a monitored alarm.:)

    indeed not(cough cough), you need a better reason than that to get one, so go off and think of one first(a fear of large rodents is a good starting point)

    Thanks man. For some reason I thought that hand guns were totally illegal here.

    only if you hold them sideways when shooting, wear a tracksuit and saying things like "put a cap in yo as5 beatch", otherwise, it's all good.

    Why in the name of God should they have guns? As if they don't abuse their power enough, imagine how much worse their attitude would be if they had guns.

    At the end of the day, there are already guards with guns and they are the only ones who need them.

    Since most of the Gardaí don't have guns but you do, did you ever consider becoming a superhero? :pac:

    I already am- I'm "Sarcyman", always there when a smartar5ed, irrelevant, annoying, mildly humerous post is required. Just shine your torch into the sky, swishing it to form an "S", for sh1te, and lo, I will post:)

    I will sleep better knowing you're out there doing what you do, because you're the hero Ireland deserves but not the one it needs......or something.

    A big one with two barrels that goes bang, bang. I use it for pest control. In the past i have had pistols and semi-automatic rifles, but when the kids came along I got rid of them in case they mutinied and turned them against the missus and me. I reckon we can face them down if they keel-haul the shotgun seeing as they would only have two shots, and the missus is quite large, so capable of absorbing a fair bit of damage before faltering. I'm fairly skinny, so i would be hard to hit, especially in the dark.

    Anyway i've never seen a garda without arms........
