    Just curious what you consider yourself to be? a handgunner, a rifleman,

    or a shotgunner? Me I shoot all, but am really ahandgunner at heart.

    I shoot more handguns and rifles than shotguns, but generally I like anything that goes BANG!

    Well, since I currently own 5 handguns, 1 rifle and 1 shotgun I'd have to say I'm mostly a handgunner. I about handgunned out - I can't see myself buying anymore except for a specific purpose such as a Kel Tec or Kahr for CCW.

    Next up on the acquisitions list are more rifles.

    While I do a little of everything, I consider myself a Handgunner most of all. I like my pistols full cap, and my rifles black.

    Ancient words of wisdom.

    Pistoleros are always poor.
    Shotgunners are always rich.

    Riflemen are lazy, they shoot laying down.

    I consider myself to be a handgunner. I almost (recently) broke down and got an Ar-15 though. I ended up backing out and purchasing some home audio eqpt. Does that make me an audiophile with a handgun problem?

    Rifleman first. But I tend to put more bullets through handguns.

    Well, how bout..student of all, master of none? What would that be, General Gunman?:D No choice for that so couldn't vote.

    In terms of priority of arms, I would think that Rifleman is the biggest priority since its the most versatile. Handgunner next for emergency purposes, with shotgunner being last since its the least versatile arm even if it is extreemly effective in its narrow niche'. (flame suit on!)

    Best to be versed in all three types, but beware the man who only owns one gun.

    No, that means you merely had a momentary lapse of reason. Report back soon that you've aquired your AR...:D

    Well, I'm much better with longarms than with my handgunning.... however I'm gonna say I'm a handgunner who is just REALLY good with a rifle.

    I shoot pistols much more than anything. I just seem to enjoy them more. I have a number of rifles and usually take one to the range each trip just to keep "in practice". As far as skill Goes I rank it like so...

    Pistol/Revolver - SLightly Above Avg.

    Rifle - Competant but You won't see me winning any competitions

    Shotgun - A joke...a total and complete joke. :uhoh:

    Mostly handguns here but slowly starting to lean towards rifles as time and money permit.

    I like shooting rifles the most. I actually shoot handguns more often. I'm working on improving my shotgun skills.

    Shotgunner.

    I'm currently fascinated by EBRifles, C&R rifles and revolvers, wait - 1911s too, and then there's...

    but I've spent by far the most time in the field with a shotgun in my hands. I'm still always thinking when I'm shooting rifles or handguns; a shotgun just flows to my shoulder and follows the bird. It's natural, like drinking a glass of water.

    I can't wait 'til Jeff Timm's statement comes true for me! :p

    And Edward, Edward, Edward! Least versatile? :eek: :confused:
    I don't see it that way. Jacques' son has the gout, I suppose. Fortunately, we can have 'em ALL. :D
    {edited to add: and please understand that I'm just telling you my view; I always seem to get along with other Heinlein fans}

    Handgunner with a strong interest in rifles. At the moment, don't even have a shotgun, though sooner or later another's bound to follow me home.

    Mostly a handgunner nowdays (I teach judgmental shooting and gunfighting tactics to law enforcement agencies), but I used to shoot a LOT of trap, and have hunted with rifles and shotguns since I was a kid.

    If you can hold it and it shoots, I've probably shot it. :D

    Currently my rifles hold sway over me so I voted for that.

    Does anyone else go back and forth like I do rifles to pistols? I never have been into shotguns much though.

    I'm handgunner because the chairman of the new acquisitions committee (a.k.a. wife) do not want rifles and shotguns in the house.

    I like shooting rifles more, but my state won't let me own any of the fun ones.
