Is it because you just like shooting sports? Or is it for SHTF scenarios? zombies? Repelling an invasion? Economic collapse?

I need a new good reason!!

So that I can feel like I have even a moderate chance of getting a single glancing hit on Chuck Norris when he comes to roundhouse kick me in hte face for saying that Bruce Lee's foot was his one weakness.

So far, my guns have only been used for recreation. I own them for protection.

Who told you I was well-armed?

Do I know you?

(Mental note: Time to buy more guns, ammo, SHTF supplies, tin-foil...)

If I'm armed better, more familar, and better trained with my weapons than than the person attempting to do me harm then I win

+1 All of the Above. The older I get, and the further we get from being a real Constitutional Republic, the more paranoid I get.

If you're selling your guns cheap I'm sure you'll find some buyers here.

Tragically, all my wares were lost in a freak accident involving a midget, some Clorox, a shop-vac, and a butane lighter.

Horrible, just horrible.

I dont own any tanks, jets, bombers, high explosives, grenades, C4, RPG's, stingers, artillery, or BFG-9000's.


I don't consider myself "well-armed". I am vastly outmanned and outgunned.

I have worked around the scum of the United States. They would not think twice about doing whatever they had to to take what I have, including taking my and or my families life to get it.
Because I can
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:19:19 PM EDT
But I am not, there are just so many cool guns, historical guns, fun guns and I have so little cash.

Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:19:24 PM EDT
I'm well-armed in a vain attempt to over-compensate for a disproportionately small peepee.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:20:26 PM EDT
Because my genitalia are small and feeble.

Because I am a member of the unorganized militia, as per US code, and as such I need to provide my own weaponry, and weapons for those members of the militia who can't provide for themselves the tools of war.

Because I am a free man, and I will die a free man.

None of the above.

I'm an art collector, and firearms are the highest expression of the industrial arts.

I'm not well armed, I'm highly cultured.

Dirt-poor Iraqis are better armed than most of us.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:37:07 PM EDT
1) Home/self protection (a few)
2) Target shooting
3) Action shooting
4) It's a collection...you can't just stop at one.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:37:17 PM EDT
I like shooting.

It is relaxing.

It is fun collecting.

It's my money.
