I recently saw a picture on somebody’s Facebook page. In it was a girl holding a gun. Her sister had taken her to a firing range for her birthday. This struck me as odd and got me thinking.

Have you ever fired a gun? What was it like? Do you own any guns?

No, never. Nor do I want to. Guns should only be owned by police, military, and farmers.
Agree 110%

I've fired a lot of water pistols!

Now that sounds like my kind of gun, lol.

I don't own a gun and never will, but I have been to a firing range and my brothers had air rifles (for clay pigeon shooting) when we were younger, so I have fired those too. It's a skillful hobby, so trying to hit a target and improve your aim and dexterity is actually fun. Overall though, I'm not a fan of gunlaws of other countries, and see it as something that can get out of hand.
Yes - fired a shot gun, a 9 mm and a point 22. Don't own any guns...but I think it is a skill one should learn in today's world - unfortunately!
No I haven't.
No I don't own one.
Why on earth would I have fired a gun

Perhaps to shoot one of my ex's would be the only reason I could possibly think of.

No, I do not own a gun though one of my ex's did and I was very happy when he handed it in as it was under the bed and he had a very nasty temper and would totally lose it in a rage.....

That doesn't sound safe!

Nope. I've never even held a gun. I wouldn't mind giving it a go though.
Yes , most definitely. I was reared on a farm, later as an adult I farmed as well. At times I used a firearm everyday. At other times less often. It was as necessary, as soil, sunlight, tractors and water.
Yes. Great. No.

Was in Army Reserve, & taught 9mm Browning pistol, F1 sub machine gun & the remarkably accurate 7.62 SLR (rifle).
Was interesting experience, but that's all.
Would NEVER own a gun in 'civvie street', interests me not one jot.
Yes I used to shoot .22 rifles and air rifles on weekends and the occasional weekday. I did this through the local shooting range and we only shot a targets - I would never shoot an animal or person.
It's a fantastic experience and a fun sport I'd recommend it to most responsible adults and even children over 14 to try at a supervised sporting shooters club.
I do not own a gun and I highly doubt I ever do but if I did I would store it at the range - it would never see action anywhere else.
Yes, in my teens, in the bush somewhere & hit 3
empty cans, sitting on the dead log, That’s it.
It was a .22.later my (now) husband later handed it in, to the police, & it was cut up into little pieces. Back in the ’90’s we flew over to Harare, Zimbabwe 3 or 4 years in a row, with the Qantas rifle club, whe’re he’d go shooting at targets on a rifle range, with the Zimbabwean police rifle club.
They too, would NEVER kill animals.
Nope. Never have, never want to, can't imagine what would ever make me.

Oh! Rice, maybe if your life depended on the ability to fire it???

Yes, at a supervised gun club range. Didn't like the feel of the recoil and not interested in doing it again. It was a once only experience but not for me.
Yes, I have fired a gun, but in a shooting gallery.
