Gun control advocates view videos like this one with revulsion. It’s not just the porno movie music that sets them on edge. Whenever they see civilians running around armed to the teeth, they wonder why. What possible reason could a non-military person have for dressing up in camo and a bullet resistant vest and running around shooting stuff? Maybe they’re preparing to attack! I might suggest that the gun grabbers’ relative lack of firepower adds to the frisson of fear, but that would be wrong. After all, they have the ATF and FBI to protect them from gun-crazed militia men, right? Anyway, what the anti-gunners fail to understand is that guns are a wonderful hobby . . .
Nothing takes you away from your troubles like holding a gun. You can’t think about the kids, money, domestic argy bargy, work, your health, nada. You have to focus your mind exactly on what you’re doing, to the complete and total exclusion of everything else, lest you shoot yourself or the wrong person. Magic!
Model railroads have nothing on guns. There’s an endless supply of toys—I mean, firearms, ammo and related gear—to consider. Purchase. Test and evaluate. And then throw into that box in the basement that your wife keeps threatening to put out with the trash.
That’s assuming the male of the species is reading this. If you’re a woman—and you know who you are—[safely] messing around with guns is an excellent way to show men who wears the ballistic pants in the family. Do we care? Not we do not. At the risk of seeming sexist (perish the thought), the only thing sexier than a woman who knows her way around a gun is . . . nope. That’s it. OK, a sexy woman who knows her way around a gun. I mean, where’s the bad here?
In the course of running this website, I’ve had a specific goal: to entertain and inform TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia whilst keeping the site as an open portal to gun world for mainstream gun owners or potential gun owners. Our numbers are still pretty good: 10k page-views a day. But I want more. MORE? More.
So tell it like it is: are your guns a hobby, a vice, a means to an end, the fourth great passion of your life (after spouse, family and dog), or some combination therein? Is the guy in this video nuts? Are you? And then send your non-gun buds a link to TTAG. Who knows? It could be the continuation of a beautiful friendship.
