Guys and Gals, Please refrain from calling your guns "weapons". Weapons are items used in commiting a crime. When talking about firearms, guns, knifes, pistols, ETC.&nbsp; call them as such. Remember, how we act and talk in the public's eye, only improves our image as sportsmen and women. We try to get this point across in our NRA training classes. Sorry to ramble, but we have alot of people trying to take our rights away, and I get pretty pi$$ed off about it. Sorry, it is my $.02&nbsp; WW<br> <br> <EM><STRONG>"Something to think about...."</STRONG></EM><br>

I'll have to&nbsp;pass on&nbsp;that. I frequently refer to them as weapons. Had a 1st sgt. in the army that insisted we called our m16s weapons, stuck with me till this day.&nbsp;To him your gun was&nbsp;your purple headed yogurt slinger.He even had&nbsp;a little ditty;<br> <br> "this is my weapon and this is my gun, this is for fightin and this is for fun"<br>

<P>I AGREE!! I USUALLY SAY MY WEAPON, HANDGUN, RIFLE, SHOTGUN, ETC..&nbsp;BUT NO MATTER WHAT THE ANTI GUNNERS WILL DISAGREE WITH ANY TERM THAT US FIREARM LOVERS CALL THEM. WE CAN CALL THEM OUR PRETTY FUZZY BUNNY, BUT TO THE ANTI GUNNERS OR ANTI-HUNTERS&nbsp;WILL STILL&nbsp;&nbsp;FEEL A GUN BY ANY OTHER NAME IS STILL A GUN!!</P>
