Thread: Gun Trial before Purchase

  1. #21
    Thanx for all the good pieces of advice. I am glad to announce that I have tested the handgun in question over the weekend and found it to behave as expected.

    AK I agree with you a 100% on the pre-purchase decision and having done all the requisite homework. I knew exactly which gun I wanted with all its pros and cons. My only concern was if the piece I purchased had any manufacturing defects that exhibited only when the gun was in actual use. Ahsan Sb was accommodating enough to assure me that I would be facilitated, if that were the case. The good news is that I won't be needing any facilitation

    Generally you need not check functioning of NIB imported handguns.

    When buying from credible outlet with pro-customer approach like PARA, a video of first session would be enough to convince them into change of weapon, IF any malfunction due to manufacturing fault. This is a rarity occasion however.

    As for how a handgun behaves in your hands, or how you "feel" about it, I'm of the opinion that it's a pre-purchase evaluation by your good self that counts, and your study of the weapon intended.

    This, humbly, cannot be an obligation on part of the seller. So....they're indeed being nice to you.

    Do your study of intended weapon and ask for PARA's words on cooperation, IF handgun does not operate functionally. Enough.

    I'd be amazed indeed, if you wanna keep trying functioning handguns till you're set about one particular.

    A kaboom happened with him at roof of same plaza (early 90s)
    Then quite to try an other one lol.

    It was post payment testing, though.
    The dealer did advise me to test fire the pistol before weapon number entry at DC office.

    Even a fresh out of the plastic film pistol might malfunction. And such malfunction might not be detectable in dry fire or other inspection (at least not by me). Ihsan Sb and his crew at PARA were nice enough to accommodate me to test the pistol at my own convenience and facilitate me if things in anyway were not in order. With the current law and order situation, such a situation leaves a person like me in a fix. Do I get the weapon enrolled with the DCO (like a civilized law abiding citizen should) or do I wait, till I have had a chance to actually test fire the weapon?(which might be a bit of a while, at earliest, the upcoming weekend)

    How do the experienced gunners on this forum tackle the problem at hand?
    Well, in "golden period" ,it was pretty much the same what Leon bro has stated especially with local 30 bore pistols,people used to fire in front of the shops and Norinco pistols were considered all OK and were usually bought without test firing.
    Now, even if you go to rural area and have no one to greet you,expect a call to 15
    Yes, after reading what happened to Saiga 12 bought buy FA226 : http://www.pakguns.com/showthread.ph...Exp-01-ver-030
    We have an enormous appetite for guns but it's all hush hush all the time ,it feels like an open secret even we are allowed to keep guns legally but sadly we have that cunning "SHO mentality" in our community on all accounts and it's creeping in our culture which should be taken very serious.
    IMO Pakistani gun owners ,collectors ,hunters etc. ,well whoever owns a firearm or wants one should have a stronger voice like the American NRA.
    it should be called PRA (Pakistan Rifle Association)
    And "PRA" members should have a vote effect in country.
    LEAs allover the world cannot control crime that's why at least Home Defense licenses are issued.
    These days laws have been toughened and gun sellers mentality is "bus yeh hai lena hai to lo or itnay ka hai" due to ban on imports smugglers are having a good time with gun shops as well.
    We are forced to buy reloaded rifle bullets at a high price.
    I can go on and on... but lets call it a stop

    It's quite old topic but things are pretty much the same now as well. Exploitation of weapon dealers is on the higher side.

    Pakistan does have an association named National Rifle Association of Pakistan, but they are limited to shooting sports only. Not at all concerned with the weapon laws etc.
