There seems to be two types of people in the gun owning world: those who talk about it, and those who keep it a secret.
A lot of folks will tell you that you shouldn’t tell people that you own guns for personal security reasons, and I can sort of agree with that, but I’ve become the “out” gun owner in my circles, and I’m okay with that. Here’s what we had to say about it in episode 122:
Yep. I’m the gun nut, and I’m pretty okay with that. By being the gun nut, I’ve been able to help a lot of people make educated purchases because they know I’m someone that shoots a lot, and I’m safe and sane, so they’re comfortable approaching me and talking shop. Maybe it’s the gunblogger in me, or maybe I’m just transparent enough that I can’t stand to have my favorite hobby be a secret, but that’s who I am.
So, are you “out” as the gun nut? If not, how do you support gun rights and help grow the shooting sports?
