I like to clean & oil them - that's kinda Zen to me - but when that's done, I put them away.
That's just like the way I feel about computers: I have several of those, most in mint condition, all I do with them is updating them...

There's a fine line between 'collector' and 'hoarder'...
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 2:02:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
several, and i use it for sporting reasons, and if necessary, self-defense.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 3:02:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess you've never really used it for self-defense... Am I right?
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 3:02:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
For the record: I didn't put that pic in my question.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 3:23:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have a few. Mostly I just keep one in each of my trucks. Between hunting, and some of the houses I roof, I can be in some pretty secluded areas.

Do nerf and star wars toy guns count?
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 4:36:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, and can't say I've had the need for one either.

There have been several occasions when I'd have LIKED to have had a handgun, but since I don't like the idea of prison food or being forcibly sodomised, I'm rather glad I've never been properly tooled up.

^What he said, except for the 'Nope' at the start.

There are several around the house at strategic locations. I don't expect to ever have to use them outside of target practice.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 6:37:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but my mom has a revolver of some sort. She use to work on the police force, and so was aloud to use a gun. She still goes to register for her permit once a year though.

Has it occured to you that guns at 'strategic locations' will also be accessible to an intruder?
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 6:41:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
My strategic locations are under my bed and in a gun safe.
I think I'll be fine.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 6:44:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
OK!
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 7:09:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Naw, it's all illegal and stuff.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/14/11 - 7:39:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
My Dad has guns in his closet. Dunno what types, and he never takes them out of the house. I personally have no guns. I have daggers though.

I bought my first when I lived in Arizona. Before I got it, I got harassed a lot. Not so much, after...

Liberal gun laws haven't exactly gained in popularity in Norway after 7.22

Not in my possession no.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 10/15/11 - 12:56:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, primarily for making smaller groups of holes in paper at increasing distances. I'm more of a rifle guy though.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 10/15/11 - 1:57:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've never really had a desire to own one. I do find the types of guns and their capabilities and their histories interesting though.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 10/15/11 - 2:03:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, and even if I wanted to, I couldn't, due to some unjust laws and inaccurate labels made by people who do not deserve the jobs they have.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 10/15/11 - 4:13:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Has this anything to do with you having a diagnosis, tric?
I know I shouldn't be allowed to own anything more lethal than a plastic knife, but because the various data bases are not coordinated, even certified loonies can buy weapons...

No, the girl wants to take up target shooting, so I have been thinking about getting something to do that with. Unfortunately, the guns I prefer shooting and that feel right in my hand are generally a larger cal round (.40 or .45) and are more expensive. We'll prolly get a 9mm, because the ammo is cheaper.
