    Dealing with predators that feed on your flock, has that made you change the way you look at firearms?

    I have a sudden urge to buy a .22 caliber rifle.

    No. I've always been pro-gun. My grandpappy taught me at an early age to respect the gun. He made me learn to load, shoot and clean a variety of firearms.

    It's more than predators, it is for yourself too [​IMG] In fact if you look at statistics, the states with the least strict gun laws actually have the least violence and death/murder by firearms.

    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!
     
  7. I've always been pro-gun. I carry a hand gun and pepper spray in my purse. We have a loaded shotgun under the bed.

    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.

    Here is a link to a good online site with good prices.

    It's my right and I intend to exercise it [​IMG] The fact that it works for predators is just a bonus [​IMG]
