>be kinda suicidal
>actually buy a gun
>not suicidal anymore
This happen to anyone else? Just curious.
Plenty of people improve their depression by doing fun things.
Now go shoot your gun and remember, if you change your mind about the suicide thing, please play the "botched auto erotic asphyxiation" game instead, it leaves less of a mess for the cleanup boys, isn't going to make you a hamburger face if you fuck it up, and lets your mother pretend she raised a pervert instead of someone who didn't think he was loved.
Good man that's great, let shooting and guns become your hobby. Hobbies are great for working through depression. I mean yeah my life can still suck sometime, but I haven't been full-on suicidal since I've been a gun owner. You'll notice a big improvement in your happiness after a while.
This as well. Plus if you do end up removing yourself (please don't) do it clean and without a gun. Not only do the guys that clean you up have less to do, you won't add to the gun related suicide statistics that are lumped into all gun crime statistics thus fucking over other gun owners.
Have fun bro, enjoy being happy.
This too, but if you do decide to an hero, climb to the top of a 3 or 4 story building, anchor some razor wire to something solid, cut enough length to hang over the side of the building half way down, take the end and loop it around your neck a few times, then superglue your hands to the sides of your head, take a running start and leap off the side of the building.
When they find your body it will look like you 'sperged out and tore your own head off with your bear hands.
>Being dissatisfied with living
Also, using a gun to kill yourself only gives metaphoric ammo to the gun grabbing agenda. Don't fucking do it, familia.
>Being a psychological mess
Only wimminz get to be unhappy pieces of shit, anon. Shitposting is the patrician's therapy.
Yes, i was a little scared. Im not even depressed anymore.
If I was gonna kill myself with a gun I wouldn't use dogshit ammo like that.
Also what gun you get op? Also like others said, I remember hearing in a few places(even ones outside of here and not in gun forums) that shooting is a great hobby too get out of depression.
I started shooting sports because I was depressed.
My parents were worried I'd shoot up thr school or kill myself, when it was actually the opposite. Going to the range twice a week helped relieve stress. I found sporting clay shooting and long-ranged shooting helped calm my nerves and was actually really relaxing for me.
Even now, cleaning guns or plinking off my back porch is relaxing. My family thinks I'm some extremist right-wing survivalist because I love going innawoods for a couple days at a time, or go to the range once a week. In reality, it's just very relaxing. I've just started ignoring my family and doing what I love.
It's hard not to be dissatisfied with life, the way the world is currently.
Overall the economy may be doing well, and overall unemployment is down, but people aren't holding jobs for very long. It doesn't help that Saudi Arabia is deliberately fucking the West over by pumping non-sustsinable levels of oil a day. This is causing massive lay-offs, very little international shipping, and is effectively killing the Canadian dollar.
American coastal cities are seeing big hits as well.
We're also living in a time of political strife, where the left and the right are going so far in either direction that this hasn't been seen since thr American Civil War. People hate the government, Europe is going to shit, Canada is going to shit, and should we follow their lead we'll go to shit.
This guy gets it. My job is in jeopardy because of the situation you mentioned and all anyone can talk bout at work is 'Do you think we're going to get laid off?' It's bringing me down man. I didn't leave the house all weekend because all I can think about is saving as much money as I can before the income goes away.
Maybe do a little self reflection and zero in on the cause of the depression. Make plans to change it, namely set some goals and work towards them, you might find somethings you enjoy or never thought of along the way. Or if the cause is a bit out of your hands, set some different goals in life that you look forward to work towards.
Hell, if I had cash and my career went to shit, I'd like to hike the large US trails on both the east and west coast.
Nothing that the Saudis do is economically viable. Half their populations lives off welfare which gives them the equivalent to a $80k+/year job. The amount of oil they're pumping won't last too long if they know what's good for them. The sad part is that we don't have the balls to stand up to them. They can keep this up for years, ruin everyone's economies, and not give a shit.
Saudi Arabia is either on welfare, or works for the state. All other jobs are handled by foreign workers like me.
Working in Saudi Arabia for 6 months as a white, bi, and most importantly non-Muslim was fucking scary. I was treated like dogshit by everyone, even kids.
Honestly, I hope they burn. They're in full-retard mode, and if they keep it up they won't make it to 2022.
But, anon, at least now you are depressed with 15 guns
>I'd rather be depressed with the music and A/C pumped in a Ferrari than outside on a rusty Walmart bike being splashed by richfags in Ferraris
Honestly I think a big part of it is that we build up the idea of suicide in our minds and once you have an easy route a lot of people just go
and go on living. Of course not all but once you have the power to take life in your hands you suddenly get an idea of the immensity of that power and ultimately how significant and precious life is.
Long range shooting takes the physical and mental benefits of meditation and adds in an elemne tof measurable competition.
The breathing cycle, the mental focus, the shutting out of all the worlds problems and focusing on a single target hundreds of meters away. Conrolling eveything about your body and taking into account every variable to achieve perfection.
Its very zen. I have never fekt more relaxed then i do when i walk away from a long day of shooting things in the distance.
I can imagine thes emphasis on control and mental discipline would be great for people suffering from depression.
>go to range
>not suicidal any more
Guns are awesome.
>mfw this whole post
Damn I'm this guy, and now I feel like an asshole. I legitimately thought that anon was joking.
If you're going to kill yourself with a gun kiddos, do it right. .50 AE or go home.
It was about three years ago.
Took six months intensive rehab and surgeries and then almost a year of out patient stuff afterwards.
>use something greater than a .22
I've never been suicidal because I know the loving nature of Jesus Christ. There are many times where I have been distraught with heart ache and not known what to do, but the Lord always guides me through.
Also, if you're struggling with depression or anger, you should ask a trusted friend to hold onto your guns for you.
Was super depressed at one point, attempted suicide, a few years later get my first gun, have a great time, month later buy second gun, month later buy my 3rd gun. I went from depression to hording fast.but I love the guns and community, I like making a bug out bag for fun and plan on never using it, I like having a survival rifle and plinking with it. Guns saved me nigga.

>mfw most of my family in the area works at/in association with the local oil refinery and are already seeing hour and pay cuts
>If you do kill yourself, please don't make a mess!
>cares more about drywall than another human being
I fucking <3 this meme, right up to don't give gungrabbers any more "ammo" or some other equally gay saying.
>too rich for my blood
.22 suppressors are pretty inexpensive even with the tax stamp factored in. Certainly less costly than your collection. And arguably the best NFA toy you can get.
>lets your mother pretend she raised a pervert instead of someone who didn't think he was loved.
Damn. Almost makes me what to call my mom after six years of not speaking to her. I need a drink.
I was in my room.
Shot myself with a sig .22 pistol and it was directly in the side of head (like pic kinda), I flinched really hard at the last moment.
which is what lead to the bullet only cracking the skull and launching splinters instead of penetrating into the brain.
I was 100% totally conscious for a few minutes but couldnt barely see because of blood in eyes, and i couldnt move at all, so i had a few minutes (felt like eternity) before i blacked out.
A family member heard the shot in my house and ran upstairs, called 911. they came fast and i had emergency surgery.
i dont remember the entire week following me entering the hospital. i just remember being in the hospital totally disoriented and unable to see out of my one of my eyes, and unable to feel half of my body.
my girlfriend told me that i wouldnt stop asking her to kill me every time she saw me but i dont remember that or even seeing her at the hospital.
you really should pick a larger caliber and make sure you dont flinch. flinching is what leads to not actually dying as planned.
>I was 100% totally conscious for a few minutes but couldnt barely see because of blood in eyes, and i couldnt move at all, so i had a few minutes (felt like eternity) before i blacked out.
Do you remember any of your thoughts from the moment you pulled the trigger to the point where you blacked out? Like did you try to move your arm so you could try again to end the pain?
My thoughts were exclusively "fuck im still alive, okay this will be over fast now" and a major adrenaline rush type of feeling. like extreme fear and extreme excitement.
i couldnt tell at all if i was moving my limbs or not. i was totally numb to all sensation of touch / movement.
The best way to kill yourself is to grow old and die peacefully.
The best way to turn into a miserable vegetable is shooting yourself (even with bigger rounds), there's no guarantee it will kill you.
>ever using a gun to kill yourself
Lazy ass faggots
>Shot myself with a sig .22 pistol and it was directly in the side of head
What happened to your gun(s) afterwards? And are you still hasguns or prohibited from owning/purchasing now?
>The best way to turn into a miserable vegetable is shooting yourself (even with bigger rounds), there's no guarantee it will kill you.
I've always wanted a visor/mask to paint a smiley face on
>cant be metal
Got a question /k/, a couple years ago I admitted myself to a mental hospital. Was incredibly suicidal at the time, decided to play it safe and called 911, they took me to the mental hospital. Because it counted as self-admittance since I called in myself, the hospital said I could decide when I wanted to leave. I left after 3 days because I realized I wasn't batshit crazy like everyone else in there, I was just being a crybaby faggot.
Would I be allowed to get a carry permit or even purchase a gun? This part on the ATF form worries me:
>Have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective (which includes a determination by a court, board, commission, or other lawful authority that you are a danger to yourself or to others or are incompetent to manage your own affairs) OR have you ever been committed to a mental institution?
What has me confused is the footnote about being committed to a mental institution:
>A formal commitment of a person to a mental institution by a court, board, commission or other lawful authority
>The term does not include a person in a mental institution for observation or a voluntary admission to a mental institution
The police escorted me there because I called them, but the mental hospital deemed it a self-admission. Does it not count as a lawful authority admission because I'm the one who called myself in? I can't into legal phrasing.
Sweet, thanks anons.
I work at a liquor store and I'd like something to carry for protection. This dindu keeps stealing from our store and others in the area, and last year he bit a liquor store owner in the arm. Considering he's crazy enough to do that, I don't know what else he's capable of.
>lack desire to be happy
>think guns are cool
>realize that I can't responsibly own guns if I'm constantly thinking "fuuuck i just want to die"
>acquire desire to be happy
is pretty much how it went for me
This is a little garbled, but I get it.
That's my (you).
I have a family history of suicide, everything from playing 2 way range with a cop (lol, my uncle had loaded his Mossberg with gunshow blanks), to biting off her own tongue by falling on her chin while literally in a straight jacket in a mental ward.
You can't save everyone, I'm a fairly happy guy, but now and again I can hardly get out of bed because of depression, and every (legal) antidepressant I've ever tried just makes it worse. I may kill myself some day, though I honestly think I can deal. But even though I value my life and have reasons to live, the idea that someone could save me by drugging me until my personality dies and keeping me in a safe environment is abhorrent; I'd rather be able to choose die than be denied that choice.
If you're going to end it all, the least you can do is be considerate of the survivors.
Especially when a breathplay accident is so easily faked.
Sorry for ranting, but go fuck yourself.
I go just to the range for some group therapy now. Whenever I'm feeling down, I just put some holes in paper. There's some science to it. Shooting gives me an adrenaline rush. When that wears off, I get an increase in endorphins. And endorphins make me happy.
>funs are a panacea
>realize Big Pharma is secretly the largest fun control lobby
No lol you were never actually suicidal to begin with. You used not having a gun as a reason why you couldn't kill yourself. You told yourself "ugh if I had a gun I'd just blow my head off right now." Then when you gained the ability to actually blow your head off, you realized you're too pussy to do it so now you've convinced yourself you're not suicidal anymore, even though you weren't to begin with.
Wimmin's shoot themselves in the chest when they anherorine because their so fucking vain they don't wanna hurt their looks buy blowing thief face out(also because sometimes shooting yourself in the heart can kill you better than one too the head.
Remember guys, there are easier, less messy ways to end your life. Specifically helium. Get yourself a canister of helium, a roll of duct tape, some rubber tubing and a cpap mask. Assemble that shit, breath sweet release.
Yes. Heaven forfend someone keep their personal problems from becoming impersonal components to a political agenda that affects tens of millions of other people.
I'm sure you're fun at parties.
In a similar situation to this anon, but it was against my will when I was still a minor. Apparently it's an automatic five year block and I have a year and a half to go. It's California so how fucked am I and what chance do I have to possibly challenge it and get my right back sooner?
Fuckin same. I work for Baker Hughes and the market hasn't been this shitty in decades.
>mfw I passed up a screaming deal on an AK last week because I need to save money in case I get laid off
i started getting into shooting and collecting after i could walk again. no idea if i am "allowed" to own guns still, but i have gone into gunstores and picked up stuff more than once since.
