    Fool me once...shame on you.
    Fool me twice...shame on me.
    Fool me three times? Obviously neither you or your #3 are mentally healthy enough to own a gun.

    I used to hunt, but it just never really did anything for me. But hey, if someone else wants to freeze their ass walking around in the woods stalking bambi, I'd be more than happy to eat some of the venison...

    And this was husband #1 I speak of. Husband #2 was the cheater .. Coastal is #3 and I stop with him! Thank GOD #3 was my lucky number!!

    Husband #1 and I were married not to long after highschool. Yes he had some issues and the gun enhanced them. people do buy guns for wrong reasons EVEN if they have NO criminal back ground. It can happen and it does happen. And as we can see it is getting worse .. and its time we make stricter regulations so that even the half sane can't just buy a gun to intimidate others!
    Sorry, I didn't know you were married before husband #2, I thought he was husband #1. (Damn, I think I need a scorecard) Well, I hope you and Coastal never get divorced or I'll have to start calling you Liz.

    Like I said, "Maybe I'm the one that's na´ve", However, all the people that I hunt with and all the gunowners that I know are much the same as I. Safety is paramount, you don't pull a gun unless you intend to use it, and you practice your skills as much as you can.

    No.
    The Vulcan cannon is an F-18 gun. Not Star Trek related.

    My most favorite memory of it is getting a brand new bright yellow bus to shoot. The thing shoots about 100 rounds a second, with armor piercing incendiary rounds. About one of ten is a tracer. You roll in at about 500 knots, align the heads up display aiming symbol and fire, arriving over the target at about the same time the rounds do. I remember seeing the bus just explode.
    Some things are fun.

    I guess that is the difference between a country boy having a gun for hunting vs. a city boy having a gun for "protection" .. it is all in what you need the gun for. Interesting you never hear of a hunter snapping and going on a shooting spree for innocent victims ... yet it seems all these "crazy" non-criminal city shooters are NOT hunters. Maybe that is why they should be stricter gun regulations.

    I like ground venison as a basis for chili, too.

    You think I haven't thought this through?

    Guess who's gonna hang back and "comfort" your women while you and your gun buddies are bro'ing it up out in the woods?

    I've shot a crap load of guns in my life... mostly growing up.

    my dad was the hunter. Took me a few times.. Standing there in the woods for hours. It was cold and gorgeous and there was no way I was killing anything.

    Re: Do you own of have you ever shot a gun?

    I've never touched a real gun.

    I've killed mice with glue traps & snap traps, squashed bugs, but I've never seen the need to shoot any of them because I don't like bullet holes in my walls.

    You continue to surpise, but we also get an understanding why you moved to Florida.

    4. Have you ever shot targets?
    5. What kind of gun(s) have you shot?
    1. No I don't own a gun
    2. No, I've never shot an animal, and I don't think I could. I don't have a problem with other people hunting as long as they eat what they kill, but I just like animals too much to pull the trigger myself (and yes, I realize that, as a meat eater, that's a bit hypocritical).
    3. No I've never shot skeet. I had the opportunity but I was young and small and was afraid of the kickback from the shotgun.
    4. Yes I've shot targets, but it's probably been 12 years.
    5. AR-15, .22 rifle, British Enfield sniper rifle, Lugar handgun. There may have been a couple more- my friend and his buddy had a whole collection that they brought to the range with them and I don't recall every single one that I tried.
