there is no number one reason...it is more a combo...living in the country you need one....
I tried wrestling deer down but I am unable to do it. It is easier for me to get them in my truck if I shoot them.
Because my neighbors own pit bulls.
So I can commit quick suicide if I want to.
Good job at getting my off-the-top response on the poll.....
Because I can.
My reasons are many.
I like to collect guns.
I want to protect my family from intruders.
I want to protect my family and my property from the Government, should the need arise. (fear the government that fears your guns)
I want to protect my family and my property in the event of a coup d'état, should the need arise. (though this strikes me as being a highly unlikely event... Seven Days in May is a great movie, however)
Most importantly, because I can.
Too shot people named Xotoxi.
(note to self: be nicer to MountainMan)
I've always had guns...until recently. I had them when my boys were growing up, and when the babies were little, the boys' guns were my guns. They were kept in a safe and the key was on my key chain. They had a couple of shot guns, a pistol, and a couple of rifles.
When the boys left they took their guns with them, and I haven't gotten any since. My younger kids aren't trustworthy with guns in the house, even if they are locked up. At some point, the guns would come out, and the babies are lightning quick and very sneaky.
But I feel better with a rifle and a shotgun in the house. A shotgun in case anyone wants to bird hunt and needs one, and the rifle for whatever.
