  •  If I had a farm, I'd own at least a shotgun (3+ / 0-)

    Predators can and do go after livestock; a friend of mine has chickens, and he and his brother had to deal with a couple of mink getting into the hen house.  My uncle had bears occasionally getting into his corn, and though he never had to shoot one, he found that firing into the air was a great deterrent.  

    I don't own a gun because I don't need one.  If I did decide to move to a farm, or I married someone who had a working farm and already owned one, that would of course change.   I still wouldn't own a handgun, though, and I would never carry one around with me.  I know my limits, and at my age it's way too late to retrain myself to be able to use one effectively in a crisis.
