      I would say moving is a wise choice either way.

      set for what? You can't openly brandish these weapons in the street. You live in Orlando, not Khandahar. Mickey would be pissed.

      Looks like you have close to $10,000 worth of guns (AK74 not making list?). That money could be spent on a new place where guns won't be so "needed." A wise man matches his spending to his priorities.

      How did you get all of the guns you own? Do you shoot your guns regularly?

      Moving is easier said than done but it appears to be something that you should seriously consider doing.

      ... As well as working on your spelling and grammar.

      So how is this relevant on a forum for semi-auto handguns?

      Hey toolboxluis do you have anything else to say for yourself ? I realize there may be a language barrier but that obviously hasn't stopped you from making posts.

      You said that there have been multiple shootings and murders that have taken place close to your home and all in a span of 5 days, do you have any info to back that up?

      You said money is tight yet you own multiple guns (estimated at $10,000) and I would imagine you are putting ammo through those guns. Are you still on SSD or are you working again?

      At the very least, how about posting a picture of your AK-74 ? just to show that you're not entirely FOS. I've seen other pictures that you have posted so I know you can.

      I am not calling you a liar but I am skeptical due to your irresponsiveness.

      Grammar aside. . .

      I don't know where in Orlando he lives, but this is from the police blotter posted for The Orlando Sentinel yesterday: "Detectives on Thursday arrested a homeless man, Gaston Jones, 22, in the murder of two women on Hudson Street and Bolling Drive. Jones faces charges of first-degree murder with a firearm. Deputies said the murder was drug-related." All in all, I think I'd move. And it bears no relevance to the forum at all. Better served in the "Vent".

      OK, all week there have been a lot of shootings going on. I found out today that two girls were murdered last night in my neighborhood. The night before, my best friend's next door neighbor was shoot on the back of the neck and is paralyzed from the neck down and has to have a respirator for the rest of his life. Also, 3 nights before that, there was another murder. This has all happned in the last 5 days and all less than 1/8 of a mile from my house. My best friend told me that if he had the money, they would leave Orlando,Florida and move to another state. Thank GOD I just got a used AK-74 on Wednesday night. This baby's magazine is loaded and ready, and so is my AR-15. If anything happens I am ready and set.


      I have made the attempt to edit this post by making some grammatical and spelling corrections and used this wonderful thing we call sentences in order to make this post less painful to read. I am not a miracle worker though.

      Like everyone said, you'd got a ton of cash invested in guns and obviously have to feed them. Move. I'm sorry your neighborhood is going to crap, but it appears to me that if you got rid of some of your possessions, you'd be able to fund a move. Your priorities are not in the right order. Getting more guns, especially something like an AK (when you have an AR that can serve the same purpose) that serves no use to you out on the street, is just plain dumb. What are you going to do, walk around with your AK everywhere you go? I suggest you read this thread by another member, spacedoggy. Had to sell collections but lesson learned He and his wife have health problems and cash is short. So what did he do? He sold his guns to pay for his health care. He is an example of a man who has his priorities straight; health and family's well being over possessions.

      It depends on the neighborhood folks... "Orlando-bashing"... Sheesh. I just moved from Windermere, FL, a few miles from Tiger's house. to Longwood, FL, a few miles from Chris Demarco's house... Both considered "Orlando" in the big picture.

      The shootings, rapes, drugs, etc... are centered mostly in Paramore, and Pine Hills, FL, just outside downtown. Every big city has it's Paramore and Pine Hills...

      Most Paramore/Pine Hills residents do not own their homes, so that makes moving easier. That said, the rents there are a bit below everywhere else... And government subsidized housing is hard to come by in nice neighborhoods... Those who DO own in Paramore, usually are the 3rd, 4th, 5th generation owners of these homes, which are quite unsellable. So moving for them is tough. They do NOT have a mortgage, cannot afford a mortgage. Most do not work. And if they do, it is below poverty, or below the table.

      Most of the gun owners in Paramore did not buy their guns from the local range and/or FFL. Most of the pet owners in Paramore have their "pets" tied up in the front half of the house, so as not to destroy what's left of the back. These pets are most commonly named "Turbo", "Diesel", or "Mako"... or "Ganja".

      The vast majority of "Orlando" resides outside of Paramore and Pine Hills. I haven't heard a siren in my neighborhood in years. Kids ride bikes up and down the street to the local park to play baseball, soccer, and swim in the pool... There are walking trails thoughout the community, and people use them at night. Not one rape, murder, or other violent crime in as long as I can remember...

      If you're going to slam your neighborhood, and bitch about the crime, make sure you specify the NEIGHBORHOOD... Not the whole damn city...

      I like this city.

      40,000,000 tourists a year agree... although I avoid THOSE areas too! I just like the fact that those 40,000,000 visitors pay my taxes every year... I don't have to.

      Jeff
