    I Have 3

    Since I live alone, I thought it was a good idea to buy a gun for self-defense. Thankfully, I've never had to use it for that purpose. I do go to the range and practice once in a while. I keep my pistol on my nightstand just in case, not loaded of course but the ammo is always...

    I am an outdoorsman, a hunter,

    and over all a simple country gent. I see no problem with anyone owning a firearm as long as they are responsible with it. Whether for enjoyment, collections, or for good old fashioned hunting shoot safely.

    I have 2 Mauser 98ks.

    One which was a sentry rifle that has the SS emblem on the stock. That one is in a glass case. I am looking everywhere for a Gewehr43.

    I grew up shooting and hunting.

    Having firearms in my home is normal, and a part of life for me. It is no different than the silverware in my kitchen drawers--they are there and they are used. I have passed on my love of shooting to my son as well. He is a great shot and handles firearms safely. I have...

    Most of my guns were handed down to me by my

    father and grandfather. I have three shotguns, two rifles, and a pistol. One of my rifles, a .22 caliber, was retrieved from the bottom of a pond. A tornado in 2002 placed it there. It was submerged for many years. I was amazed to discover that it still worked.

    I've always loved guns,

    when I learned to shoot I loved them even more. I'm for gun regulation not gun eradication, you should be able to protect yourself if you want, but just because one psycho shoots innocent people shouldn't mean the rest of the class gets punished too. furthermore someone WILL...

    A common arguement I hear is "why do you need

    that/why do you need so many guns?". Well, for me personally, 3 of my guns were inherited so I have great sentimental value, and where I live, the police are 2 and a half hours away so it's common sense to own something to protect yourself.  One of my favorite hobbies to...

    Gun Control?!?!
