Do you own a gun?

Postby Phoenix6570 » Mon Apr 13, 2009 7:10 pm

A few of my friends were talking about guns and gun laws today. More so about the changes to gun laws making people less likely to own one. So I wanted to see other peoples stance on it.

Don't own a gun, but plan on owning one in the future. I go shooting with a few friends from work. It's pretty fun, just gotta borrow a gun from another.

I own one but don't particularly like em. I'm all for right to own. The one I got is a hand me down I got when my dad passed away.

My nephew influenced me to buy a gun. I'm really not into it but I decided if I am going to own one I am going to do it right and get a concealed carry permit. I seldom/never carry it with me except when I travel. In my opinion guns laws are much too lax. Everyone should be required to pass the background checks (mental, drug use, alcohol) and go through the classes and range tests before permitted to own a gun. Just my opinion and I respect others opinions.

I've hunted and shot sproradically all my life, depending on what my friends at the time were into. This year, I decided to take up shooting as a hobby. An older guy across the street took me to the range several times and showed me the basics. I bought a Savage Mark 2 .22, and I go to the gun club to practice. I'd like to do more hunting, but since that's not something I grew up with, it's hard to jump in. I have to admit, I not only like guns, I like guys who like guns, so I'm hoping to shoot a wide variety of loads. :o

Never owned a gun. My dad used a 22 to kill a rat one time in our attic. There's something so manly about having a gun in the house! :mrgreen:

I dont own a gun atm, but defiantly plan on owning one in the future. I enjoy going out shoot, and would love to go hunting one day.

That being said, I also think we need to have gun laws in place.
