    My father gave me a crash course on gun safety when I was in about the second or third grade. He told me the do's and don'ts about gun handling,(always checking to see if the weapon is loaded, pointing the gun away from people, cleaning etc..) and let me shoot at a target with a 22, and he then gave me a bb gun. I've always been comfortable around firearms and the proper use of them. Even my mother and little brother know to properly handle a firearm as well, so it's feels normal to me.

    No, but if I ever move into my own place, I may consider it, but it's 80-20 no.

    Does an air rifle count?

    Yes. I have a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum pistol. Stainless Steel, 4 inch barrel w/a rubber grip. Very nice, and it's registered. I plan on getting my wife a .38 snubnose and I'd like to get another Mossberg 12guage shotgun sometime down the road and probably a 30/30 rifle for hunting. If we hit the lottery I'll go ahead and get a Glock 40cal just for fun.

    No...

    and guns are for "Guns are for self-defense, hunting dangerous and delicious animals, and keeping the king of England out of your face"
    those problems they havn't been major issues for me yet

    I don't own a gun myself, but my family has a few relatives who live on some property that they've owned for over 100 years, and some guns that have been stored away over the years there. There were a couple of 22 caliber rifles that none of them cared to have, so we own them.

    Yes. One revolver, one (sawn-off) shotgun, one (hunting) rifle. My dad's always been a pretty avid gun collector, and he's built and modified quite a few in his time as well.

    Yes, several. It comes from being raised in a family of hunters.

    However, my compound bow is my one true love. [face_love]
