As a gun owner what do you do with or how do you use your guns? Are you a shooter or collector? Are you a hunter or target shooter? Is your focus SD/carry/personal protection or just shooting?

If you are looking for a gun are you looking for a pristine NIB gun or a shooter?

Let us know what you do with your guns. Also include what you would like to get into, like 3gun or Trap or Collecting Milsurps

I will start it off
I prefer to spend time at the range plinking and practicing SD. I like to hunt but do not get out as much as I would like to.
I would like to get back into Skeet, I shot a lot while I was in the Marines I would like to get into 3 gun. but I would like a nice AR for that.

So let us know what your guns are used for.

Hunting, plinking, HD/SD, collecting, 2A. I'd also love to get into three gun but I'm not currently aware of the rules of how those competitions work.

Nearly all of the above.....collecting, hunting, competitions, and recreational shooting. Although I have a CCW, not much crime where I live, personal protection isn't a real concern.

I'm more of a shooter than a collector. Most of my shooting is training related, though I do enjoy .22 plinking as a stress reliever.

I'm a mixer. I'm not so much into antiques as just old ones. Having a nice one permanently on the wall is not as nice as having one with history that you can take to the range every week. I also like the newer designs. The contrast between the older and newer styles is fascinating to me.
I do not hunt, but I like having the proficiency to shoot, just in case I might need it. I've been in a couple of local IDPA matches, but I haven't had time lately due to work. I'd like to get into 3-gun eventually.

I would like to get back into 'shape' as a rifleman in terms of military (CMP) match shooting. In practice, this is hard having little kids and money and time constraints. I use my M-1's as backyard plinkers at ranges <100 yards.

I have started hunting deer having never been raised to hunt as a kid. First time out was last year. I didn't get one but had a great time anyway. I'm giving it a go again this season.

My wife and I are both NRA and ISRA members. We keep a pistol for home defense, but we live in pretty quiet area. I have a type 3 FFL, but can't afford many goodies. I also have a CWL not good in my own state.

Although I am a passibly good shooter with rifle and pistol, I have never been worth a darn with a shotgun; I would like to teach myself to be a better clay shooter so it's something I can do with my girls when they are bigger as a sporting activity.

I would like another (or five!) M-1's. I take fair to middling care of my weapons, and have a couple nice ones, but I don't fret over NIB status as that takes to fun out of it for me.

And the most shooting I've done of late has been off my back deck w/ a second hand Crossman 1377 air pistol from a garage sale---and I enjoy the heck out of THAT, too.

I first got into guns because I liked rifles (especially with a historical connection) and figured I'd also own a couple handguns.

I've evolved into more a pistol shooter, and few of my guns have any historical connection (if you stretch, the modern S&W 1911SC, and Charles Daly have a connection because they are 1911s, and of course there are the 2 blackpowder replicas, the lever rifles, revolvers, and the SKS).

For type of use, I don't hunt but I guess my guns are for a bit of everything else. Target shooting (plinking, no competition, but I may eventually get into one of the shooting sports), self defense and collecting. While few of my guns are collector items or in collector condition (some are), and there is little rhyme or reason behind what I have (I don't collect mil-surps, rare guns, all wheelguns, etc.), I do buy many of my guns without a needed niche to fill but just because I want them (a type of collecting).

New or used, pristine or "shooters"? Yes:D. I've bought used collectable guns in collector condition, otherwise collectable guns in "shooter" condition, garden variety "work" guns used (like my SIGs) and I've bought plenty of new guns as well.

I'm primarily a collector and target shooter. While I have no problems with hunting or hunters, I'm not a hunter myself (don't believe in shooting anything with a face, except in self-defence).

For me right now it kind of goes like this (in order of what I'm doing the most), .22 plinking, trap and skeet, long range target shooting (informal), hog hunting (just started that this year) and a little bit of pistol shooting just to keep my skills up. I also like WWI and WWII pistols (especially WWI as there were some funky designs back then) and I've collected a few of those.

I'd like to get into 3 gun and high power rifle competition shooting. I'd also like to get back into IDPA. The 3 gun and high power rifle is something that I've always thought about doing, but it always seems like the locations are too far for me to go to regularly and I have no one to go with as no one I know is interested in either.

Well, back in late 60's and early 70's I was just classified as an "informal
shooter"; using my weapons [including high power rifles] for range use
only, with shooting distances averaging from 50 ft. to 300 yards. Then,
in the mid 70's I became a professional LEO; and the requirements then
shifted a bit, shooting mostly handguns both informally and formally. As
crime increased [starting in the late 70's for my area], I looked to the
self loading semi-auto pistols as the weapon of choice. As the crime
increased, I added a home 'D 12 gague shotgun to protect my family
and assets. Now, with crime being at an all time high two years ago
I added a .223 caliber Colt M4; to fend off possible multiple attackers
or home invaders.

Now retired, I still do a "fair amount" of shooting; trying to stay on top
of my game; but also expecting the unexpected. Overly cautious? Most
likely so, but up too the task of protecting myself and loved ones~! ;)

I'm a history buff. That's what got my interest in collecting guns started. I have a C&R and have collection guns from various times in history.

I also keep a few guns for home defense of course. A shotgun and a couple carbines stand guard. There are some handguns available. I have a CCL so I do carry a concealed handgun on my person.

However, my first gun was a 22LR Marlin when I was a teenager. It was used for shooting paper targets and that is what all my guns are used for. I love taking the old Mausers, Enfields and Springfields out and punching paper at 100 yards. I love ripping up the black at 50 yards with an AR and a reddot or an AK with a 30 round mag. I love punching big .45 cal holes at 15 yards with my CCWs. My various 22LRs still get the most use in the back yard 25 yard range.

I've done some competition shooting in USPSA (http://www.uspsa.org/). It was loads of fun shooting cardboard tombstones or metal poppers in plywood shoot houses. I really loved it and want to get back into it, but gas and ammo prices interfered with the fun of the two hour drive and back every weekend.

No hunting guns for me though. I do all my hunting at the local supermarket, armed mainly with a debit card.

I"m a mall ninja. All my guns have gizmos and gadgets attatched to them, and are are in tactical black or stainless...no blued for me!


However, I'm a hunter as well, and enjoy target shooting at least once a week, so my guns do see plenty of actual use!

I am from a Military/LEO upbringing. I have a respect for firearms and have been drilled from day 1 on safety which I continue to impart on all who know me. I enjoyed hunting when I lived in the country but most of my current enjoyment comes from the semi frequent trips to the range for target practice. I'm always running SD scenarios through my head. It annoys the soon to be wife. I thank my father for helping me develop my situational awareness from an early age. It is something I constantly work on as one can never be too aware. I shoot what I buy...no king's or queen's of the safe...its an 'autonomous collective' here.

There is a long military tradition in my family. Nearly every member of the family (male and female) has either served in the military or was/ is married to one who served/s (although most served).

Most of my interests are in military firearms for training, collecting, and just shooting for pleasure. This is a primary reason for ownership.

Many of us hunt. The wife and I enjoy hunting and are passing it along to our kids. So we have a number of hunting rifles and shotguns as well. We do not hunt with handguns, although I tried it once, just didn't ''feel right''. We also bow hunt.

Home defense/ self defense is entirely secondary to the above purposes although we are quite well prepared in that regard. This is something that just comes with the terroritory.

There is a long history of defending civil rights in our family. My mother who recently passed was a big champion of civil rights before it became the ''cool'' thing to do. She learned this from my grandfather who was well known for treating blacks equally in the South during the 30s when it was very unpopular to do so. That is another of the primary reasons for gun ownership.

Collecting. I am not much of a collector but a collection seems to have found me. The FIL is a big collector and it seems to have rubbed off a little. Like SD/HD I think it just comes with the terroritory. I don't really care about having a NIB 1892 .45-70. I just buy what I like and what I can afford and am patient enough to wait for a good price.

All of the above, i have a good supply of parts on hand to build all most anything. the guns i am building now are 1911's.
I buy parts year round from retiring gunsmiths and current makers so i have something to do with my down time.
The shop i work at is a restoration repair shop, so anything i find i practice on rebuilding everything i can. there's more time in them than money. I won't pay more than $100.00 for a project but when i am finished it is back to as new factory condtion or better. i shoot everyone of them i build or rebuild.

THRers and their guns, what do you do with them

Some of everything you listed I like, do, have done, or have a interest in, except collecting mil surps. There is a very few of them I care much about. 1903-A3's or some of the mausers do, and are exceptions to that rule, and do interest me.

I have a Curio and Relic collecting license, so I have many older, historic, collectible firearms.

I also have a concealed carry license, so I have several rigs for that purpose. I believe that defending our Liberty is one of our responsibilities as American citizens, and our Constitution guarantees that right to us.

I love to target shoot and practice marksmanship. That is what got me started with this hobby in the first place. I love trying to get the rounds in the bullseye at 100, 200 and 300 yards. The art of the rifle is my passion. Nothing can touch the accuracy and overall effectiveness of a well-made rifle and skilled operator, in my opinion.

I also am an ardent 2nd Amendment supporter. I'm a member of the NRA and the Texas State Rifle Association.

Regarding the post:

Numerous have not seen the light of day in awhile (safe). Others I shoot as often as I can. The important ones a couple of times a month.

Just purchased a Kel Tel su 16 ca 223 that I plan on shooting at least 100 rounds before the end of the month:)

Did I need this rifle :what: Not according to some;)

I suppose I fall into multiple categories.

I deer hunt with Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Bow, Muzzleloader. I usually hunt more with the bow and muzzleloader than anything these days. I gun hunt but most of my vacation time is spent in the early seasons and I just hunt Saturdays and holidays in the gun season.

I am a daily carrier of a concealed handgun. I have gone through periods where I didn't spend a lot of time at the range, but in the last year I have gone at least twice a month up until a couple months ago when I joined the local gun club. Now I'm there usually twice a week on the handgun and rifle/shotgun ranges.

I am also a target shooter in that I like to poke holes in paper and tin cans with .22's just to pass the time and I enjoy shooting my hunting rifles in search of the one hole group.

I would like to get into shooting trap. Have only done it a couple of times and was not very good at it. Would like to learn. I'd also like to get into IDPA or benchrest competition one day but right now with work and the kids I really don't have the time to invest in competition.

My primary reason for owning guns is because I live in a place where the earth can move and all of societal infrastructure can fail. I'm told by the county and the American Red Cross that I should be able to take care of myself in terms of food, water, and medical for at least 3 days.

Glaringly, they never talk about police services disappearing, or suggest that I get a gun.

But having lived through the Loma Prieta earthquake, I'm here to tell you that as a part of your urban survival kit, you'd better be set up for home defense if you live anywhere near a fault line, because it would have been real easy for things to go real bad from that earthquake. I'm talking Katrina bad.

Yes, that's right. I've had a deep, gut-level feeling since 1989 that something like Katrina could happen to an American geographical area. I might have been one of the few people in America who wasn't surprised by Katrina. (Saddened, but not surprised.)

At the moment I own mostly pistols, and I mostly use these for target practice just to make sure I can hit what I'm aiming at. It is on my list to get a shotgun, but first I need to figure out how to store it safely given that I have small children in the house. I'm also beginning to look into self-defense shooting courses, now that I have the time and money to pursue that interest.

I'm not a collector and I don't consider myself a sportsman where it comes to guns. I own them out of practical necessity.

If CCW ever came to my county, I'd get a license and carry a gun when away from my home, and in that case my self-defense reason for owning guns would be even stronger than it is today.

Thanks for asking!

I am primarily a hunter and my main interest is in hunting rifles. I also have a small milsurp collection and enjoy the history associated with these guns. Sd/shtf is very much a secondary consideration. I have a few of these types of guns, but I rarely shoot them. I'm not involved in any formal competition, but I target practice almost daily.

Started out as a plinker, then self defense, skeet a little hunting, now collecting, both milsurps and older pistols, from 1880 up to the 60's on the pistols.
my problem is running out of room to stack, store and show them.
But it won't stop my picking one or two up on occasion.
Problem is I bought all the cheaper ones a long time ago, now the big $ units keep getting more expensive. the wait and see if I can get it cheaper backfired and is costing a whole lot more.
Oh well, can't take it with you.

I haven't gotten to shoot in about 3 years now because of work schedule & changes to the family unit.

So until recently, I was never much of a "gun guy" -- my wife was in a pistol shooting club when we lived overseas, and since moving to Texas we have had a shotgun for "Texas golf" (that's social trap/skeet to those of you outside the Republic,) but to be honest I lived most of my life without guns being a big part of it.

What's changed recently? My daughter started reading the Little House on the Prairie books, and decided that she needed to learn how to make a fire and pitch a tent ... and shoot a rifle. So we figured, "yes, you probably do," and joined local club and got us each CZ-452 .22 rimfires. Now we head out to the range together every other weekend or so.

It's a great way to spend time with each other doing something that's both demanding and fun. And it completely de-mystifies guns for her.

So to answer your question(s) about what we do with our guns:

Time at the range, plinking and target shooting. But that answer conceals more than it reveals -- what we're really doing with our guns is learning discipline and having fun together.

Currently, I am a gun SPONGE.

I bought my first firearm in October 2006. I grew up in NYC and had ZERO contact with guns. Upon moving to a free state, buying my own home, and starting a family, I felt I had a duty to protect my family and home the best I could. I purchased a 9mm handgun and went to the local range (government funded and run!) to become proficient with it.

A love affair was born! I had a great time poking holes in paper and wanted to learn more and more about guns. This led to learning more about self defense (CCW), the second amendment, shooting sports, and collecting.

I am currently in a phase of gun ownership where I want to try and do everything. I know own 2 handguns: one for CCW, one for the nightstand. I own 2 rifles: both generally for the range. I have a Garand on order: collecting and the history of our country have become much bigger interests. I'm trying to get involved with hunting and have been bugging my father-in-law to teach me about pheasant and deer hunting.

I handload ammunition. I write my elected officials about 2A issues. I've spoken at city council meetings about CCW. I'll spend an afternoon shooting with friends. I'll spend time at the range talking to strangers about their muzzleloader (neato!) and my AKM-clone ("where can I get one", they ask!). My wife and I go shooting. I debate and discuss issues on THR. I ask and answer questions at THR. I went target shooting with my California groomsmen the day before my wedding. I'm in the process of assembling an AR-15. I read about how guns work and why we have the second amendment.

Guns have provided me with social, educational, legal, political, and practical experiences (all positive) I never would have experienced if I had never gotten involved with them.

I hope I never have to use my guns to take another life. However, I am prepared to defend my family if others leave me no choice.

Gun SPONGE... I like that :D

Sort of describes me. I grew up in a non-gun family, had my first shooting experience in NROTC in college, and bought my first gun years later.

Today I'm primarily a collector... I'm both a history buff and a lover of things mechanical... my gun lust satisfies both urges, and I scarf up C&R's like there was no tomorrow. I love cleaning them, taking them apart to study how they work... all that stuff.

Secondly, I own firearms for self defense. It's my birthright, as an American, and a freedom not exercised is a freedom lost.

I enjoy range time immensely, but it doesn't happen nearly as often as I'd like... priorities and laziness are to blame for that.

But basically, I'm a gun SPONGE. If I see a gun I like, and I have money, it's mine :D

THRers and their guns, what do you do with them
As a gun owner what do you do with or how do you use your guns? Are you a shooter or collector?
I'm a shooter, attempting to collect on a check-by-check basis.
Are you a hunter or target shooter? Is your focus SD/carry/personal protection or just shooting? I'm a target shooter, HD guy. I'll be an "all of the above" when I move to VT in '08

If you are looking for a gun are you looking for a pristine NIB gun or a shooter?

I'm a deal-hunter by nature, which leads me more towards shooters than lookers.

Let us know what you do with your guns. Also include what you would like to get into, like 3gun or Trap or Collecting Milsurps

I will start it off
I prefer to spend time at the range plinking and practicing SD. I like to hunt but do not get out as much as I would like to.
I would like to get back into Skeet, I shot a lot while I was in the Marines I would like to get into 3 gun. but I would like a nice AR for that.

So let us know what your guns are used for.[/quote]

I hunt small game, upland birds, deer and starting last year, turkey.
(Have yet to bag one.)

I really enjoy going to the range with friends or my son and just plinking away.

I carry & MrsTwigg carries so we pratice drawing from concealment and firing.

I also collect, I like old guns and some milsurps. Taking 'em apart & puttin' 'em back together's part of the fun for me.

I love the challenge of getting an old gun and making shoot better than it did when I first got it.

First and foremost I am a collector. I have firearms that fit solely collecting and have still never been fired by me. I have others that are for hunting. Finally, I have my self-defense arms. But, if someone told me I could keep but one or two in each catergory, I don't think I could narrow them down.

Cosmoline
August 19, 2007, 08:21 PM
I tend to keep a small number of firearms but I cycle through a great many. I've probably owned well over a hundred in the past seven years. But I usually only have four or five at any given time. Recently I've settled into a small arsenal that seems to suit me best, though it's not sexy by any means. I do as much shooting as I can, with a mix of shooting for practice and shooting to work up loads or calibrate some crazy new sighting system or other. I haven't done as much hunting as I used to, but I'm hoping to have time to change that.

competition (HP, tactical rifle)

i've long since given up buying pristine NIB guns as nobody makes a gun i really want. i build my own ar15s from pieces parts and have respectable smiths build my bolt guns.

my current project is an uber-light ar15 carbine. no steel except part of the barrel. no aluminum except the carrier and stock. everything else is carbon fiber. i'm hoping to get under 4 1/4 lbs. with an aimpoint.

I grew up loving guns and hunting. And I just plain loved to shoot. All the time. We were dirt poor, so it was a struggle to keep in BBs.

Now I live in the big city and have can buy pretty much anything (within reason) that I want, but no time or place to go shooting (well, indoor ranges...or ranges in general--I miss the "woods").

I like the idea of being able to provide for my own food, I like to collect them, I like to build them, I like the sport of shooting, I believe in the need to be able to protect one's self, and I believe that an armed citizenry makes for a more honest government.

All the guns i own and use are for hunting in various ways. I've used just about all of them at some point in my hunting career. My dad, brother and I own several remington 870 shotguns and 700 rifles as well as quite a few other brand rifles and two ithaca over/under shotguns. All mainly used for small game to deer hunting.

I've now acquired reloading equipment from my uncle and soon to be getting into that and doing some serious just for fun shooting as well as developing loads for hunting.

Mainly hunting and target shooting. Self defense isn't why I bought any of my guns, but they can all be used for it. I'd rather not shoot anyone, but I'd rather kill someone else than me or a loved one end up on the news in a body bag.

Well I grew up in a family that wasn't about guns. I joined the military and the affair began :p Right now I mostly own for self defense, target shooting and plain fun. I have a CHL so I carry practically everywhere I go. I have never hunt so I don't even know if I like it, probably will but right now I only have a 22 LR which I used for plinking and fun basically. I still want a bigger rifle well caliber but right now I'm still putting money in the piggy bank for that.

And in some time I would like to begin my daughters in the affair too :D
