Answer . According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, there were about 215 million privately owned guns in 1999. The NRA estimates that half of all American households (total US population is 294 million) have at least one gun owner. Numbers vary, but estimates are 70-8…0 million gun owners with 200-250 million guns. There is no way to give a definitive answer. There are millions of guns in the U.S. Some estimates say 80 million households have guns, but since there is no national registration, there is no real way to know. ( Full Answer )
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
Could you be a little more specific? Do you mean for what reason or do you mean how do you shoot it?
Forensic testing. Bullets fired from the weapon can be matched to those found at the crime scene. Shell casing can also be matched up. However, if the gun wasn't fired, it would be close to impossible to prove that it has been used to commit a crime. That person has obviously never heard of pape…r patching,using a rifle of revolver,or cleaning your gun...Creativity triumphs over technology anyday... ( Full Answer )
hundreds every day!!!. Sigh. More BS hype. According to the FBI, in 2005, there were about 16,700 murders in the U.S. This includes murders by all types of weapons. 16,692 divided by 365 days is only a little over 45 each day, and that includes all types of weapons. In 2006, the number of murders i…n the U.S. was just over 17,000. In 2007, it was a little under 17,000. That is NOWHERE NEAR "hundreds every day," and that includes murders from all types of weapons. People should post facts that can be verfied, not crap that they hear. besides i like cheeeeeze ( Full Answer )
This question continues to come up, with great regularity. In most U.S. states, there is no registration, regardless of what anybody tells you. "Register you gun" is something people say because they have heard it on TV. There are 3 or 4 states that require registration, but the other 46 or 47 state…s do not, and there is no federal registration. So, in the vast majority of the U.S. there is no such thing as registration. ( Full Answer )
They were easier to carry.. They were only used as a second firearm and never a primary weapon. It is their last line of defence.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
Generally speaking, yes, if you mean a US resident. Federal laws say "undocumented immigrants" cannot own guns. You probably want to check local state law to be sure there are no restrictions.
$300-$400 depending on condition and action-type.. I bought a used Beretta for $350 that is Double Action Only . It is probably not as valuable as a full Double/Single model. I really enjoy my Beretta.
Unless stolen before making it to a retailer, they all are when bought. --- Firearms are not registered when sold by retailers (FFL dealers) unless they are required to be registered in a particular state. And the registration is usually done by the local police department in those states. F…FL dealers record the buyer's information from form 4473 in their "bound book" and then they are obligated to keep these records for as long as they remain in business and keep their federal firearms license renewed. Gues it all depends on what the OP meant by "registered" ( Full Answer )
Depending on the weapon, magazine, what "one handed" means to you, it could vary from 10-100 or more.
1. There are currently 140,000 registered firearms sellers in theUnited States (source: Arming America, Origins of a National GunCulture) The statistic information above should be explained further.According ATF publication "Firearms Commerce in the United States:Annual Statistical Update 2014", the…re were a total of 139,244Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) in fiscal year 2013. This numberhas been steadily climbing since 1996. However, the number oflicensees peaked in 1992 with 284,117. Furthermore, the term "seller" is not accurate. The number citedincludes licensees who are not considered "sellers" of firearms;collectors of firearms and manufacturers of ammunition. The statewith the largest number of FFLs is Texas, with about 10,500 FFLs asof fiscal year 2013. ( Full Answer )
Handguns were used in the first world war extensively because they were easier to wield in trench warfare. Since then they have been primarily issued to troops who for confined space reasons would have trouble carrying a rifle. For example Armored crewmen, transport drivers, clerical personnel. Su…bmachineguns are also commonly issued in many armies for these reasons. ( Full Answer )

None. When made, 99.9% are legal, no matter where made. Just because it's against the law for YOU to own it doesn't make the weapon illegal. Technically the above is correct however as guns are not required to be registered in all states it is impossible to say how many are owned legally. Guns th…at are owned illegally are obviously not registered so there is no way to know how many there are. ( Full Answer )
no not really but it is possible :p . Left handed people use "right handed" guns all the time since there are very few left handed guns. . Most of the issues are related to magazine release, slide stop, safety, and ejection....but some guns have a left hand oriented grip or stock. . What type of …gun are we talking about? What type of shooting sport? ( Full Answer )
1n 1994 @ 246K people had FFL's. Thanks to former President, Bill Clinton and the Congress of that era there are now less than 50k people with FFL's. Not all of those ran a "store".
In MOST of the US, there is no requirement to license or register guns. If they are not registered, there is no way to know how many there are. in 2004, it was estimated that private citizens in the US owned 192 million firearms- the number is higher now.
How long is a tape measure? (My favorite mother-in-law question). Point is, much more information is required, and likely only a rough estimate will be found on-line due to the lack of opportunity to visually inspect the pistol. Rough estimates of market value can be found by surfing sites on …the www, and try to find your model. Average out 4 or 5 listed prices & that's about as close as you are going to get without a visual inspection from a dealer that is qualified and experienced. '56 Sport King owner ( Full Answer )
The most current year that data is available for is 2005. In that year, US manufacturers produced 1,088,827 handguns. Not quite 3,000 per day. That does not count handguns that are made outside the US and imported. Nor does it count handguns that are legally made by a private citizen for their own u…se, nor black powder type firearms.

You can use any gun in Modern Warfare 2 for the sleight of hand perk. Every gun you use the reloading is going to be faster so it really doesnt matter. However i personally like the scar-h
It depends on which gun it is. Some smaller models holds as few as 6. Some larger models with staggered magazines hold as many as 15 or 16.
No one knows exactly- US law, and most state laws do NOT require registration of ordinary firearms. In 1994, a survey estimated that roughly 16% of the adults in the US owned at least one handgun. That would equal roughly 49.6 million persons that own a handgun. My personal belief is that the number… is higher, since gun ownership has increased sharply over the past few years. ( Full Answer )
You shouldn't. It will break down the gun oil since there are solvents in it.
Many homes have guns, though mostly in rural areas. There are also a number of people who posess guns illegaly as well as those who have a legal contract to own one. Added: (in the US) Gun ownership is a Constitutionally protected right, and since no law requires gun owners to register their fir…earms the answer to this question is impossible to determine. There is no way to know this statistic. ( Full Answer )
This question is hard to answer because it needs to be more specific. Are you asking how many operating types of handguns? Such as revolvers, semi automatic, single shot, muzzle loader, etc? Or are you asking how many models, of all guns, of all companies ever? Or another type of question altogether…? ( Full Answer )
Each law enforcement agency prescribes what sidearms may be carried by their officers. California agencies furnish handguns to their sworn employees, and these are usually a single brand and model. However, many agencies permit their officers to purchase and carry their own handguns, so long as they… meet the agency's specifications. Therefore, there can be considerable variety in what you may see in California officers' holsters. That said, the most common and popular police sidearm in the United States is the Glock pistol in .40 caliber. ( Full Answer )
Laws vary from place to place, but in many places, handguns that meet minimum energy levels CAN legally be used for hunting. There are handguns that were specifically made for hunting, such as the .454 Casul, .460 Ruger, .500 S&W- as well as the single shot pistols that use rifle caliber ammo. I dee…r hunt with a .357 magnum revolver with a 10 inch barrel, and it is more than adequate for Eastern Whitetail deer. ( Full Answer )
500 rifles and pistols were produced, a rare find. I'm looking for a set so if you know someone who is looking to sell let me know.
No- because that is in a database not open to the public. However, a law enforcement officer CAN access that information. They will want to have the firearm in hand when they do it, in the event it IS stolen, they will return it to the rightful owner.
More people are killed by firearms in the USA than by motor vehicle accidents (40,000)
Your question asks for an opinion. My opinion is that they should. When private possession of firearms goes up, crime decreases.
A 40mm handgun would fire a bullet the size of a golf ball. No such critter. There IS a .40 caliber handgun (about 10mm). There are dozens of larger caliber handguns than .40 caliber. They include the .41, .44. .45, .455. .460, .475, .500- and several others.
He used two types handguns. One is a 1873 Colt single-action Army revolver, commonly referred to as "Single Action Army" or SSA. The other is a .45 Caliber Modified Kimber Gold Combat II semi-automatic pistol. He carried two of the Kimber guns.
Since smuggled means brought into a country illegally and without knowledge, how do you think that number would be known?
2 different pistols that use 7.62mm ammunition are the Czech-made CZ-52 and the German-made Mauser C96. Many other pistols use variations of the 7.62mm round, but the two listed before utilize true 7.62mm rounds.
Standard issue to FBI agents today is the Glock model 22 or 23 chambered for .40 Smith and Wesson.
One of the largest, based on sheer mass and size is the aptly named "Pig"; or the M60. While not the largest "hand held" gun ever, it is among the largest hand-held, single person (not crew served) weapons that had been in common use. If your looking for length, the Lhati L-39 is the longest single-…person weapon in use with a military that has the possibility of being hand-held. ( Full Answer )
With out a doubt yes.I use this or carb cleaner from cnc all the time to clean my many firearms.They take away the carbon build up with ease and then I follow with a good gun oil like rem oil.
Hundreds. They are generally separated into revolvers and pistols (anything not a revolver) But then it becomes complex. There are different types of revolvers, such as single action, double action, top break, tip up, swing out cylinder, etc. There are single shot pistols that are top break, and bol…t action. There are double and single action pistols, and even fully automatic (machine pistols). There are shotgun pistols, small caliber pistols, ones that will fit in a vest pocket, and some that have scopes and a bipod. There are antique black powder pistols and revolvers, and pistols with frames made of plastic type polymers. The study of firearms is a VERY broad subject. ( Full Answer )
350 handgun? This isn't ringing a bell. Please rephrase the question with a specific make and model of handgun you're interested in. The calibre really does little to determine the going price, except in cases where the cartridge is unique to one or a very limited selection of firearms.
Thosands- although not as many as the muskets that were used. There are no specific numbers of firearms available.
L. Richards was a maker of antique flintlock firearms, such as their No. 6 pistol. Unfortunately, they are fairly rare, and there is no public records database for MOST antique firearms. Sorry.
We do not know an exact number, since there is no licensing of gun owners on a national basis. It is estimated that roughly 1/3rd of all households in the US own at least 1 firearm. The percentage will very sharply by location. New York City- very rare. Rural Tennessee, very common.
Depends on the handgun. There is no one number. I have some that hold 1, some hold 15.
There is no 25mm handgun. That is the size of an automatic cannon that is mounted on an armored vehicle.
\n. Possible. Not all powders, not all handguns. I use Unique and Green Dot shotgun powders for .38 Special and .45 ACP. The real key is to get a good reloading manual and FOLLOW IT.
No exact record, since there is no requirement to register guns in MOST of the US. One estimate is 312 million owned by ordinary people.There are an estimated 200 million legal guns in the United States.
Police most often use the 9mm Glock 17 or the .40 S&W Glock 22. The glock 17 magazine holds 17 rounds (+1 in the chamber), while the Glock 22 holds 15(+1).
