I have been a member of The Danish national guard for ten years and have
in that time had both M75 NATO 7.62mm Riffle and M62 Machine Gun with
250 live rounds in my house.

I like shooting. It's fun.

I have a (Don't know the right word) training in explosives. I like big
explosions too. They too are fun.

I do understand the fascination of guns and explosives. I just cannot
for the death of me see how it should interrest me, as an extropian,
that somebody has bought a gun. I simply wanted to say that I thought it
was off topic.

BTW. I don't think you will find many Europeans on the list, who find
private gun ownership in their countries a good idea. I certainly don't.
I know that Gun ownership and libertarianism is a bit provokative to
me. Stupid european as I am. I think I can handle it though :-) It is
worth considering at least if the extropian list want's to be seen as
