    i dont know the place but was just told by another guy i know they'll teach anyone , its a business.. and its common to see young kids there learning

    but thats the end of my contacts all the rest are north of beirut or in the zone to the east and i would not send anyone there . hadath is nice ( when i was there)

    Jbeil thats a real historic place , Phonecian i think .. John the baptist Church is there ( i was playing tourist and stopped there once , wish i had of seen more but you know what them buses are like , they'll go without you if you stay too long)

    Jbeil is also known as Byblos where the greeks first translated the early Bible and why i went there, part of my education .. wish i had more time but , had to head to jordan and the border area's , more importnat things about than my interest in the early Bible sadly ..

    Hahaha you got every single clue right Jack.
    Double D, I wouldn't think that's a good idea for me, seriously, someone who lives in Jbeil and goes to downtown Beirut where all the bad stuff happens, drugs, mugging and such, isn't such a good idea just to learn about guns, I mean seriously I don't wanna get that much information and turn into a pro..

    dou2a cheers , i'm hoping to get back that way and spend time there instead of playing the games i was last time , go to more restaruants , meet more of the people and attend some of the scholarly places .. and understand your reluctance to travel to beirut too , just the harrassment alone is a put off , but i was "packing" when there and with some serious folks , ( the folks here would never understand the BS you folks go through just to get about in many area's there , its not ignorance , just they've never seen that level of restriction ..)

    but next time i'll just play tourist and even try some fishing

    ( Farouq's family have fishing boats )

    no need to be pro ... just good enough to know what your doing and be able to defend yourself if needed is enough

    your family Maronite ? they have do have a thing about offensive weapons , in my mind not everthing is offensive , the walther would be defensive in my mind .. but each to their own idea''s

    and shooting is a great sport !!!, you may only ever shoot at ranges , thats ok , i hope thats all you ever need to do ever .. ;)

    cheers mate and good luck what ever you do ( and with your studies eh! )

    Welcome to TFF.

    You should SERIOUSLY take a training course. It's only one day out of your life, and could easily save it or anothers. Firearms are NOT toys, nor are they to be taken lightly. Owning one carries a great responsibility.

    At the very least, check out some of the on-line stuff.

    No offense, but your posts leave me wondering if yer ready for handling a firearm, let alone owning one.

    dou2a;

    I appreciate the effort but I'm not willing to go through all that for some weapon knowledge :p I mean seriously, I'm only 17. I've got my finals coming up, this is my senior year, I've got more stuff to worry about than learning about guns.

    Don't dismiss Jacks offer so cavalierly. It's not necessarily just about firearms knowledge. These could very well be contacts that could help you for the rest of your life. I know it's tough at 17 to see things like this, but you have a long future. Take some help when you can get it.

    I'd say Blessed rather... good folks all over and been lucky to meet a goodly number

    folks willing to stand up to whats wrong and fix a few wrongs when they can

    Brother Nabil , even though not a soldier has withstood bombings a kidnapping , a stabbing and they are currently rebuilding the church after a mortar bomb was wired to blow when the bell was rung and it had to be remote detonated

    he's as tough as any SF operator and a never ending smile for all , the world could use more like him , he'll go to the occupied area's and help anyone , Christian , muslim , whatever.. what we all should try to emulate , he's a better man then me ..

    and folks if i may

    the young gents reluctance to travel through the cordons around beirut is a smart move , if youi have never seen it its hard to explain , that many factions with that many checkpoints and often shooting at each other from the checkpoints

    its not just a hassle

    you really do take your life in your hands just to go shopping

    and his priority is his studies?? i think it sounds good

    the middle east is a very different world and unless you have been there and lived in it its hard to comprehend , the folks dont talk about the troubles there , that in itself can get you killed , the kids being diplomatic as all folks there learn fast , or pay the price ..

    you learn to read between the lines .. what is unsaid is often the point of the entire conversation ..

    cheers
