Just a simple question. I know guns are used for a lot of different reasons, just wanting to see what's most popular.

I'm with the others. Need to add "it is our right" to the poll, then add the selection of "all of the above" ... then I can answer accurately.

Why, need a reason; its our right.

This is like asking why guys like to fish or tune their cars.

I frankly don't have an express reason why, but its a combination of all the above minus hunting.

Add an "All of the above" option and I'll click that.

Ditto. All of the above.

I own rifles for hunting, protection and sporting purposes.
I own shotguns for hunting, protection and sporting purposes.
I own hand guns for protection and sporting purposes.

And as a big bonus, I own all of them because it really pisses off the anti gun, whack job, liberals.

I'm not saying you need a reason just curious. I think if I owned a gun it would be for all 4 but primarily would be used for hunting and protection while hunting. I'm all for the good guys having more guns than the bad guys though. I think a basic shotgun would be a good start for me. I can hunt about anything with it I guess. I have too bad of a temper to have a concealed handgun, think it would lead to more harm than good but have no problem with ya'll packin.

You got me thinking now. Are there any other members on here that don't own a gun? I guess I just assumed if you were over 18 and on this forum you had at least one gun, but I guess that was wrong.

I grew up on the water, not in the woods so I never really needed 1. Most of the hunting I've done has been on private property with a friends gun. Back then keeping things legal wasn't much of a worry, but now that I can get in trouble I'm going to get the proper permits, licenses , ect.

All of our guns were lost in an unfortunate series of events. :rolleyes: I do however believe that gun ownership is an important right that should be exercised by all qualified/responsible Americans.:thumbsup:

I picked hunting, but only because I enjoy it more. I carry one or two on my person all the time and have a couple spread out in my house for protection. I have a couple that I guess you would say I collect because I will only rarely ever shoot them I just really like them so I'm keeping them. As far as sporting purposes, I don't go to ranges or anything but I will go out plinking with a 22 or whatever I happen to have a couple extra boxes of ammo of and just shoot whatever crosses my path in the wods like magnolia flowers, pinecones, bee hives, bones, and well whatever else I feel like shooting that day. I don't do that too often but by a kid a red Ryder BB gun when he's little and you hook him for life
