I am planning a trip and think it will be a smart idea to have my own weapon on me at all times while I am there. Okay, except when dancing at the wedding…
But I have no firearms training, but I assume under kill or be killed situations, Adrenaline is Boss.
Just wondering where I can buy firearms in Israel and if I need a license?

I really hope you aren’t serious. If you are, it doesn’t sound like a smart idea at all. Without training, and with only adrenaline leading the way, you’re probably more likely to accidentally kill someone innocent, and endanger those around you, then you are to actually protect yourself. Carry pepper spray instead.October 7, 2015 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #1104743always runs with scissors fastParticipant
Yeah, I was kidding. sure.
But i anyways read up on the Law in Israel, and you must speak Hebrew, be over 27 years old, have had training in using the firearm, etc. So the pepper spray is a great idea. I will order some. Bli neder..Maybe I should practice throwing heavy rocks too.?October 7, 2015 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #1104744JosephParticipant
You also need to be a citizen.October 7, 2015 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #1104745555Participant
Why don’t you try catching heavy rocks being hurled at you, this way you wont have to bring them with you. Just catch and throw back. (unless your in a car, of course).October 9, 2015 12:36 am at 12:36 am #1104746
just act your username and you got it.October 9, 2015 12:38 am at 12:38 am #1104747
(running is always the solution.)October 9, 2015 3:22 am at 3:22 am #1104748
The velocity of a bullet is given in feet per second (fps) in the United States. The 0.22 rimfire cartridge, which has a very small powder charge,and is one of the smallest bullets, sends its bullets on their way at between 370 m/s and 460 m/s. Cartridges in rifles — centerfire cartridges — propel their bullets at a much faster rate. The 0.220 Swift, which drives a very small bullet at over 1220 m/s, is the cartridge with the highest velocity.
Lets just say you are attacked by a gunman CHAS VISHALOM, can you run at 370 mph? Frankly your chance of staying and fighting is much higher since during the initial struggle, you may A) Overcome your attacker and save your own and other lives B) Even if the struggle is even, your still not giving the attacker an opportunity, however by running you expose your head and back… The average human can run at 15 miles an hr with adrenaline, which would take about 4.5 seconds for the attacker to comfortably aim CHAS VISHALOM…
So the correct answer is to NOT RUN EVER! Take a self defense course at least to up your chances of survival…October 9, 2015 3:24 am at 3:24 am #1104749
always runs with scissors fast, If you actually get the paperwork and get a gun.. excluding all technicalities it’s very dangerous for you to use a gun without training.. If you live in the Tri-State area I would recommend GUNS FOR HIRE— they teach gun safety, etc… OR youtube 🙂

You need to live here at least 3 years and be approved by a certified instructor, have a clean record and then get government approval. You don’t have to be fluent in Hebrew, but the application forms are in Hebrew only.October 9, 2015 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1104751takahmamashParticipant
You don’t have to be fluent in Hebrew, but the application forms are in Hebrew only.
There is a Hebrew test that’s administered as part of the application; one does need to know conversational Hebrew in order to pass.October 9, 2015 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #1104752
you know, ephsurewhat2, I liked you better when you were a troll.October 9, 2015 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1104753
With all due respect I am a bit of an Economic, Statistical, Analytical, Guy so that was just the perfect opportunity for some nerdy equations.. Sorry 🙁 It was too tempting.. try not to post stuff that would require a calculation, and I may Troll. 🙂
