I have always been Pro-Gun and grew up in a family of hunters...never saw the need to have one of my own until I had coons kill my ducks and weasels killed 2 of my hens! Now my pellet gun just doesn't cut it! My DH is not a hunter so...I guess it's up to me!
No I've always been pro gun, but had 4 baby skunks in my back yard 3 wks ago, took the 12g shotgun and missed twice (what a douche!!!). Then the next evening they came out again and got my little boys pellet gun it's a high powered one and shoots about 700ft per/sec and killed all 4 with 4 shots. So you don't always need an actual gun but then again you can probably buy a .22 for about what I spent on the pellet gun.
