G&A Man on the Street: What is the Single Biggest Reason You Became a Gun Owner?

Whether used for personal defense, hunting, collecting, competition or just a fun day at the range, gun culture is American culture.┬áJust like the great people in this country, guns come in all shapes and sizes. Each has unique features and the ability to accomplish specific tasks — and they all have a story to tell.


Some people started hunting and shooting at a very young age. Others buy guns simply to protect themselves or their family. Some picked up their first gun in basic training with a drill sergeant screaming in their ear. But they all have one thing in common — every gun owner can tell a tale about the memorable day they brought home their first firearm.

The editors at G&A set out to find out what is the biggest reason why NRA members became gun owners.
