If someone has a firearm that's dedicated to recreational use, then yeah, I'd call it toy.Are race cars toys? sure they are for enjoyment but they are far from toys. Guns weren't made for enjoyment even though they can be used for that purpose but they are far from toys.
Well said.If someone has a firearm that's dedicated to recreational use, then yeah, I'd call it toy.
I have a shotgun that was designed for trap shooting, and that's all I use it for. I don't hunt with it, I don't use it for self-defense, it's only for recreation. I also have handguns and rifles that only come out of the safe when it's time for fun at the range. They're toys.
Does that mean they're treated with less care and respect toward safety as guns intended for serious business? Not at all. But if I want to decorate them or pimp them out with doodads and add-ons that I would never put on other guns, I'll do that because they're toys whose purpose is to entertain me.
