    Pretty self-explanatory...

    I'll start. I'm a pretty young guy, all things considered. I'm a college student in the murder-rate capital of the US: Detroit. A while back, I was introduced to a radio political talk show host and filmmaker named Alex Jones. At first I thought he was a total nut, but I soon realized how well-informed and correct he is about the dire straits that the world is now in.

    After learning about the corruption in our government through events and controversies like Operation Northwoods, COINTELPRO, MKUltra, and Fast and Furious, I realized that I may have to use my Second Amendment right as it was intended by our founding fathers. So, I purchased a Mossberg 500, Savage Axis 30-06, MAK-90, Ruger 10/22, and Glock 19.

    I first purchased guns because I realized our government is corrupt. What about you?

    Me thinks that while your question is well intended it is, also, unsophisticated and naive. (That's NOT an insult, only an observation!) :)

    Why do I own guns? For the same reasons, now, that I did 50 years ago: Planet Earth, Satan's realm, evil men everywhere, and the incessant ongoing inability of mankind to equitably and morally govern itself. This is, 'Why' I own guns.

    (Unfortunately for me, and others like me, both evil, AND stupid men own guns too. As if daily life isn't already thrilling enough, you've got to be able to survive each of them.) :freak:

    Personal protection and that of those near and dear is a personal responsibility.

    Because of a shoulder injury, I have a hard time throwing bullets accurately at 3 times the speed of sound.

    1. For work
    2. For self-defense
    3. For hunting
    4. For a hobby
    5. For a connection with family and fellow enthusiasts

    That pretty much covers it.

    All of the above, but mainly for the enjoyment of using my toys to put holes in paper targets.

    Wow, 1st post and a thread with a topic line like that.

    well, being as though you're new and all, I can forgive you for not knowing about the tragic boating accident, and why all I have left are memories:crying:

    Growing up watching westerns. Playingg army and cowboys and Indians.

    I was fascinated with the Military.

    Tradition with family.

    I just enjoy shooting holes in paper. The mechanics and smell.

    Everything about them I guess. Even cleaning them.
