I've shired shotguns while taking my hunting license (which is sitll current even though I haven't shot a gun since I qualified, so I should not be allowed to actually go on a hunt before some serious practise and a gun of my own so I can get some ractise that makes sense)

Frustration about that; a shotgun costs a minor fortune. A Gun safe (which , apart from being a good idea, is mandatory) is affordable, but I don't actually have anywhere I can put it (and have it comply with requirements for 10 cm / 4" or penetrating bolts) without it also being in the way and a serious eye-sore.



Odd, when I was at summer camps as a kid, we were able to shoot rifles/shotguns, but never hand guns.

Out of curiosity, where are you that you're required to have a safe?

Most European countries mandate a lockable safe for firearms.

On the other hand, every time I tank Iron Juggernaut on my Paladin I wish I had Heroic Leap, Charge and Intervene :/

Well, to be fair, 2 points in favor of this (from a definatly pro control guy).
1) Weapons are so prevalent in the US (in general) that it is safer to know how to handle them and be around them while learning, than not learning in most cases.
2) There genuinely ARE parts of the US where having a weapon, and knowing how to use it, is actually necessary for survival (granted, mostly its areas where you also need to have you own watersource and know how to build a fire in case your heating system fails etc..)

If it helps, Worldie, I have had an offer from the same person (several times) to take me to a gun range and teach me how to shoot.

I usually decline. "In an emergency, I can figure out how to not shoot myself, but as I do not plan on owning a firearm, I really do not see a need for it."

"But if you knew how to shoot properly...!"

"It wouldn't compel me to suddenly go, OH I WANT A GUN!"

In fairness, if you don't know how to fire a gun properly, you're probably more likely to injure yourself than the animal or person you are aiming at.

Precisely. And I'm pretty clumsy, so I prefer to not tempt fate, training or not. Don't get me wrong, I do see the value in knowing how to, but a firearm is one thing I have no plans to ever own and/or permit in my residence or vehicle (loaded or not).

I'm very pro gun. I own quite a few weapons.

But, I'm also very pro gun control.
It's a messy topic, and people around here don't understand how I can be both, because the US is (in stereotype) a land of extremes when it comes to issues such as this.

As for a success:

I purchased, and linked what will probably be the last weapon for my current PoE character. Having a weapon of this magnitude has taken the clearing of end game content to an almost lulz ezmode in most instances, and I'm not even in completely "end game quality" gear yet.

Not too young, I would have been... 10-12 or so, and we were only shooting .22's.

The guns were kept under secure lock at the range, and we were all taught an extensive class on gun safety before being allowed to use them. To be perfectly honest, it was probably safer letting us use those guns that it was letting us carry pocket knives or use saws to cut firewood.

Work related: Finally tackled a nasty bug that has been haunting our application for several months now but did not want to be taken down.

WoW related: Gave someone new to wow (she got her level 87 hunter from her boyfriend who is also in our guild) a good time by showing around some raids. We first did our weekly "dragon hunt" (Sarth -> Malygos -> Ony) with several guildy's at the same time, just because we can. After that we had lots of spare time so we went Blackwing descent aswell. It was her first time there and she greatly enjoyed it ^^ Feels good to show new people around like that a bit ^^
