I totally missed the "or" in the thread title and read it as "Do you own someone in your household..." :lol: It's late and I'm stupid.

As far as the firearm goes, I no longer own any guns because the wife doesn't like them.

Real men may trade there wife in for a gun but NEVER the other way around! ;)


I still own a couple from my hunting days. I have not fired them in probably a decade.

Not anymore, when i was a kid my mother owned a 22 rifle, but sold it.


I wouldnt mind getting a 9 or 10 mil handgun, a good high power rifle and a combat style shotgun. But have not take the time to buy them or get the permits for them (which would be no problem). Generally I have found other items to spend or save my money on

Yes, shotgun self defense pistol and three dogs. I want to get a taser but they're illegal in New York.
If I were to get in the mugging business, I would want a stun gun. They would make mugging so much easier and safer, walk up to some one and boom they go down, you are free to take their wallet, watch and other valuables, and you dont have to worry about a murder charge

Not currently, though I used to. Lately I've been considering getting a CHL.

No. I don't want that kind of things in my house, especially now when me and my girlfriend are expecting our first child. Firearms belong in the hands of police officers, the military and hunters - not amateurs like me who has no use for them.

No. Though My wife and I have gone shooting a couple times and enjoyed it, so it's not out of the question that we might in the future. We simply have too many other things to spend money on at the moment.

Unless your victim has a heart attack.

Born and raised in Michigan. Of course I own a firearm.

.357 magnum, six-shooter. I've never pointed it at anyone with the intent to shoot/kill, and I hope I never do.
