This. In my state just about everyone hunts and is appropriately equipped.Very good read, and I agree with his points.
No gun or NRA stickers on my vehicle; no “keep honking, I’m reloading” stickers, either. It's pure “grey man”. And I rarely come directly home from a gun shop...it's usually the first stop if I’m running out.
My neighbors probably know I have firearms, as they’ve seen me leaving in hunting clothes more than once...but that’s not uncommon around here. None of them, however, know...how large my firearms & munitions collection actually is. And none of them likely ever will.
I feel really sorry for anyone who follows me home. There's only one way in or out of this place and I have family on both ends and in the middle. And no one on this street plays around.No one ever bothers with me. I drive a '99 Jeep Cherokee XJ, all black, safari rack and tire on the top, 35x12 inch tires, lifted with fender flares, a deer catcher on the front with 4 spotlights. There was a day when I looked good, but felt bad. Now I look bad, but feel good. No one in their right mind bothers with me. If they're not in their right mind, well then, we might be able to have a conversation!
