I personally prefer muscle powered weapons to firearms. I just love pulling back a 100LB compound bow and smashing an arrow through a solid block of two by four. I got 5 Crossbows and 3 Compound Bows of various poundage, I just love using them. While nowhere near as practical as a shotgun in a self defense scenario, I do not live in fear of some guy armed to the teeth crashing through my front door. And even if that did happen, he would find a broadhead released from a 260LB crossbow to be exceedingly deadly.
I plan to start an inventory of firearms soon, it is on my "to do list". I am even considering selling off most my wardrobe to accommodate my outdoor shooting hobbies. I had a firearm license in England but got rid of my weapons when I immigrated to the USA. I am starting from a blank slate here which is fun. I have my eyes on a Sig Sauer P229 for the time being and plan to invest in at least 2 or 3 top of the line hunting rifles. Also have my eyes on a Mossberg shotgun - for clay shooting and home defense. Of course, I intend to continue purchasing the latest and greatest bows and crossbows that come out yearly.
I am also interested in big bore pellet guns - check em out if you guys get a chance
In terms of hobby, clothing is way way below my outdoors activity interests. I like nothing better than being decked out in camos and being on the firing range or archery range. Clothing is fun, but shooting is way more fun. If I could do both, I would be happy, so I will try not to get rid of all my Tom Ford suits or Hermes jackets.
