In any case, there are a lot of reasons why someone might want to own a gun. For me, it was a combination of things. It allowed me to own a piece of history and it provided me with a mode of personal protection. Plus, shooting is just plain fun.
If you're a gun owner, I'd love to hear what your reasons are. If you are not a gun owner yet but are considering it, I'd like to hear your thoughts, as well. Just vote in the poll or leave me a comment below.
