Wink Are you the 'gun guy' or 'gun gal' in your neighborhood?

Chickadee's comment about having a cleaning table in the drive way with neighbors visiting prompted me to consider how well that would go over in our neighborhood. Probably not so well. Not that we live in a liberal area, duh - it is Georgia, but in the immediate area I'm kinda known as the 'gun guy.' I attribute it mostly to some of my Facebook activity. So, are you the neighborhood gun nut?

Only to the teens that want to date either of my daughters. Right when I tell them "you see how she looks right now? She'd better look just like that when she comes home".

I try not to advertise the fact that I'm a gun owner, I prefer to keep a low profile.

I agree with Chuck. I'd rather they didn't know. No stickers on my truck either.

nonononono.gif No overt stickers. There's one NRA sticker on the inside that is hard to through the tint. Other than that, none.

Not even an NRA sticker. I will confess that I've got a Kimber hat though.

I don't advertise anything I do. Having said that I know half the cops in my small town and they know I shoot. I've even frog lubed a couple of their service Glocks for them. They are great guys. Just people doing the job they love.

We have a close neighborhood. We're not the only gun owners, but we do have the most (of the ones we know about anyway). There is an active duty Ranger living next door - he may have more guns than we know about...

We try to go camping with the neighbors right next to us at least once a year - that's when they find out what we've added to our collection.

I don't mind the neighbors knowing about our guns, but absolutely no stickers on any of our vehicles.

Besides "Ole Man River" that lives behind me and runs inside like a fat kid to a candy counter when he see me cleaning my guns on the patio...
Nobody knows a thing about my firearms.
My own mother didn't know until my brother told her a few months ago.
