I like the challenge of trying to beat my best. The challenge of improving. I also get a thrill out of being able to control something so damn powerful,

Why do you like firearms/guns?

Very simple...security, stress relief, and sport.

Default Well Im not the biggest guy...

On my block by a long shot! (Pardon the pun)! But God may have created Man
...But Samual Colt made them equal! As long as I have the right to "carry" and
protect myself, even the baddest "mo-fo" that crosses my path has met his
match!!

I am not an engineer, but I find it interesting in the mechanical aspect. With some many different platforms in the world and the ways offered to get a piece of metal to land precisely on target.

(The truth, when I got married to this one over 31 years ago, she offered me a challenge that I could not refuse. She was not going to allow any firearms into our house. Because she does the dishes now, one could say she lost.)

I started dating this hot chick once. I mentioned how I missed shooting. She got all pissy and told me that I shouldn't be allowed to own firearms because people only do bad things with them like rob stores and kill people. (I was in the ARMY as well). I tried to explain to her but she wouldn't listen. So I kicked her the hell out of my house.

I grew up in a country that does not allow civilians to legally own guns, the only ppl that have guns back home are the criminals, and I lived in a bad area, with a large heroin problem to boot. I have memories of kicking broken needles and burnt spoons out of the way in order to have a kick about in the 'local park' (LOL and I use that term lightly as it was more tarmac then grass). I've been mugged with fists, knives/screw drivers (stabbed 3 times in my life) and worst of all with a needle full of blood (and trust me on this, I would rather a gun pointed at me, that can only kill you....one scratch from a needle with god knows what inside it and the very fabric of your life could be destroyed).

Anyhow, all that being said, I don't carry a gun to hunt. I like the knowledge that nothing will cause me to be in a situation like that again. My first line of defence is simply to avoid areas like that (if you look for trouble you usually find it), after that will be my ability to talk my way out of most situations but I will never hesitate to defend myself or mine if need be.

I can't remember who said this but I think it was on this forum someone once said....

"I carry a gun because I can't throw a rock at 1200 fps" I love that line!!

I like trying to hit that darn red dot, the smell and getting away from the everyday routine.
