So yeah. Basically I've been asked this multiple times by family members visiting from out of town. I think my parents have been telling them about me and my cousin's trips out to the mountain. I've never gotten asked this question by a fellow gun owner because I think we all kind of know there's an unwritten rule about it, sort of a don't ask don't tell sort of thing. Anyway, when I first started shooting I would actually tell them how many I had. Granted I don't have an arsenal like most of you guys have, but now I've decided that I simply will not let that information float around out there. I started using the analogy that because guns are so expensive, telling people how many you have is sort of like telling people how much money you have in your checking account. It's sort of interesting though, the people who ask this question generally aren't trying to be snoopy on purpose. After a few minutes they usually confess that they have been thinking about purchasing a firearm and sort of bounce ideas off me regarding what I thought about various models. Of course I am quite a novice but I do my best to steer them in the direction where they can get more information. Have you guys come up with a standard answer to this question?
