I am not a tacti-cool type of guy. Heck, I live in rural Western Pennsylvania, and don't own a single item of cammo. I don't own an AR-15. I don't own a Glock, or any other firearm not comprised of steel and wood. I don't own a Cold Steel Commando Ninja shovel. I have never played Call of Duty -- as I matter of fact, since getting regularly beaten by the kid when she was eight years old I sort of avoid video games. When I do discuss guns in public, I don't focus on how many rounds it holds, how fast I can fire off those rounds, or in anyway allude to how badass guns make me. Instead of trying in anyway project any sort of law enforcement or para-military image, I sorta try to go the opposite way. Tony Lamas instead of jump boots; Levis and cotton shirts; and, yes, I'm one of the old guys that still wears a leather bomber jacket in the winter, although Pennsylvania has also forced me to buy a Carhartt. Outdated? My wife says so. Stylish? Not according to my kid. But . . . my gun interest doesn't raise eyebrows or worry my neighbors. Rex? Yeah, he collects guns, but he's a good guy. See . . . I "collect" guns. It's a hobby (people say), not "he's obsessed with guns". I really think that wearing cammo (unless your are actually hunting) and web gear and a cultivating the military or law enforcement look (once more, unless you are a cop or in the military) damages the public perception of gun owners, and make us look like wanna-bees who might not be completely mentally stable. I know that we all have our "costumes". My boots and leather jacket are as much of an affectation as anything I've mentioned here -- I just don't think it raises as many eyebrows. What's your costume?
