I am curious as too how your friends, relatives and co-workers view guns. Just out of curiousity. My brother doesn't like them and doesn't think anyone should own them. I think I beat on him a little too much when he was younger. As for co-workers, most of them own guns because they hunt. But other than that they don't talk about them. At least they own them. And my best friend is a LEO. He thinks like me. You Can Never Have Enough Toys!

My Mom is OK with .22s for plinking, but is too much of a Bambi lover to gor for hunting or heavy firepower. I recently acquired my (first) AR and on my next trip to visit I can hear her saying, "Why on earth would you need a gun like that?" and my answer is, "What does need have to do with it?" Then I'll teach her how to shoot it. My Dad is cool with guns. He just CCWs for self-defense. Of my three brothers, one is an avid hunter, another is a casual shooter, and the third knows how to shoot, but I don't think his wife will let him have a gun. Most of my coworkers are cool about it. I shoot with a couple of them. My supervisor was in my CCW class last year.

I don't know of anyone in my family that's not a gun nut. The coworkers are a different story. With the coworkers its the typical anti-gun BS.

I am the only 'gun nut' in the family. I do have an Uncle that is as bad as me. He has had to buy additional safes to fit his purchases.

Everyone in my family is cool with guns. One guy I work with collets, but never shoots.[rolleyes]
