    Yes, a shotgun. Sentimental because it belonged to my Dad who died over 50 years ago.

    Just a simple 'no' is my answer. So, I chose 'other.'

    Yes, handguns, rifles, and shotguns. Always had them around growing up too. My husband and I both have concealed carry permits. My husband usually has his with him all the time. I never carry mine.

    When I married DH, he 'came with' some shotguns. His family is from the west where it is more customary to own shotguns and rifles. His parents owned a farm and shotguns were necessary to kill predators. DH used to skeet shoot with a friend. DH's eyesight is no longer good enough for him to shoot, so he has disposed of most (but not all) of his shotguns. I think it is mainly nostalgia for him.

    My dad went hunting a few times when I was growing up, but not often and we didn't have a gun ourselves.

    I do not own guns and have no plans to.

    I've never owned one, but my dad is a hunter, so growing up, he always had his hunting rifles in the basement.

    DH and I have some and both our girls repeatedly get the "if you see a gun, don't touch and tell and adult" speech. So far they have shown zero interest in them.

    Tread carefully. The mere mention of the g-word is forbidden here.

    This is what we did with our kids. They have had it drilled into them since they were little, that guns are not toys.

    But I don't know if Spongebob is the same as a Pink Hello Kitty one.

    I had a pink .22 Sig Mosquito, but DD15 has claimed that as her range gun, so I just had to buy the purple .22 Sig Mosquito when it came out.

    Are you sure you have enough to hold the Zombie horde off until those with reservation show up to bunker down with you and ride out the Zombie apocalypse.

    We own several. Growing up my father was a big hunter. He still has his guns at the house. My DH and sons hunt and own several different types. No assualt rifles. DS13 also does shooting sports for 4H, so we have the stuff for that. they were taught very young about guns and gun safety.

    Yep, we own guns. And if you come into my house uninvited, you WILL see them.

    No, although I'm in the minority in the area where I live. I very much doubt I'd ever want to own one.

    My dad had a couple deer hunting rifles when I was growing up, but I don't remember ever seeing them in the house. He must have either hidden them really well, or kept them off our property. He sold them after going deer hunting once after we moved to GA- said it was too depressing after hunting in WI, MI, and Canada. I guess he thought the deer were too little in the south!! :rotfl:
