it's really like bowling...

People ask me why I own guns when I don't hunt. They insinuate that I only own them to kill people with.

I shoot targets. Some close, and some far away.

It's really no different than bowling... Just a smaller ball.

And I don't have to wear those clown shoes...

You should ask them why they have a brain if they don't use it.

Yeah, but I don't wear ear protection when I bowl, either. Gotta use the proper equipment for the job, y'know. Both activities can be a blast (one, literally). I can get a bang out of doing either. If you want to get into REALLY goofy accessories, try golf. Also the same principal.

Took the .338 Lapua out last night at midnight. It was 0 degrees F, no wind, full moon. Went to a spot in the boonies, that takes the Jeep to get to the target zone, and a 2 mile drive back to the firing line. Shot at just under 1000 yards. 10 rounds fired, and 7 within the 14" circle. Thinkin' those other 3 must not have had bullets in them...

I took a couple of my liberal friends with me. When we went back to check the target, I got the .45 out, and did a little instruction. Both fired 10 rounds, and I think they enjoyed it. It was hard to tell if they were smiling, or if their faces were frozen...

Had shooting muffs for all, and yes the new optics work well.

At least they were willing to go and learn... I give them credit for that!

I dunno seems like guns are kind of dangerous.........well bowling can be too I guess as some of that food they serve is mostly fried in animal fat so probably not a healthy hobby either......sides I bet getting hit up side the head with a bowling pin would hurt too.

I love target shooting outdoors and theres nothing like the smell of just fired .22s. I dont hunt either and I get the same sort of questions about why I even own guns, but its simply an outside hobby I enjoy. I just dont like to kill things. Ill eat them, but wouldnt kill it unless I was hungry and had no one else around to do it. Anyways you ought to have a gun with you on a farm whether you plan to kill something or not.

Im suprised your friends were willing but I bet they had fun. Generally the only friends of mine who are interested in shooting are those who already do it. I could NEVER get into golf.
