    I'm shocked gun ownership isn't higher than that. Maybe it has to do with me living in a rural area, but out of all of our friends and family, I only know of one household that doesn't have a gun of some sort.

      Same here Poppy, only one family doesn't have any guns. Everybody else has at least a pistol, and the rest of us have a variety of pistols, shotguns, and rifles. I've got two pistols, a shotgun and a rifle, [and a 4WD, but that's not what we're talking about, hee hee], and have another shotgun, rifle, and pistol that is at Mom's house that I will inherit at her death.

        I think it is a big time rural vs urban result. Dealing with average Joe / Suzy citizen as I work in an Urban area for 26 years, I see these stats as being fairly accurate.

        Like you guys, most of my friends and family own a gun. But I think that is simply we connect with like-minded folks.

          Don't know about you guys but if I got a call out of nowhere from a pollster and they asked if I had any guns there would be a big NOPE as the phone was hung up. I bet I'm not alone with that thinking and that screws up the results as well.

              I wouldn't answer that question or any question for that that asks what I own, even if it would be whether I buy liquid or powder laundry detergent. If I am in a mood, I will mess with pollsters and try to present myself as the biggest dirtbag, pervert, idiot, or whatever comes to mind or attempt to engage them in a conversation by answering their questions with philosophical questions about their topic.
