    Seems like half the community is divorced or has been at least once revolving around guns.

    I thought it would be the 11 traits of gun owners from the Anti's point of view:

    1. Cowboy, waiting for the next showdown
    2. Psycho
    3. Murderer
    4. Racist
    5. Ignorant, stupid plebe (bonus points if a southerner and NASCAR fan)
    6. Bitter clinger (to guns and religion)
    7. Angry
    8. Terrified
    9. Mentally defective
    10. White, Male, Christian, Conservative, Republican
    11. Compensating for small penis (does not apply to women)

    Apocryphal story: Woman, noticing a man carrying a gun, goes up to him and scornfully says, "Why carry a gun? What are you afraid of?"

    Man, nonplussed, responds, "Why would I be afraid? I have a gun."

    We've all had a tragic boating accident at some point.

    We should both be committed. It stands true.
    Orchids are growing in our garden this year.

    The OP's posting of the 11 Traits, yup, that about sums it up for us too.

    2 additional traits immediately come to mind;

    - inability to accurately use units of measure at the range...
    ...as in, " My LCP shoots "dime" sized groups at 15 "yards."
    actually means,"dinner plate" at "15 feet".

    -poor transaction memory when speaking to a spousal unit...
    ....as in,"At "$375" for an XYZ, it's an investment I couldn't pass up!"
    actually means, "$1375" for "something I wanted"

    Must be a plausible liar, as in - 'Sure, you remember that ol' thing/rifle/handgun/shotgun - I've had that for years....'

    The 11 traits were a bit flowery and what should be but not always what is.

    Lots of thugs on youtube showing off, lots of punks littering shooting areas, lots of......

    Most on this site seem to fit the description of the OP though!

    We are very civic minded!

    As in, "Let's follow those police cars!" "I'm sure if the Sheriff didn't want my help, he wouldn't have given me this CHL!":D

    Definitely something to aspire to, albeit I found it over generalized, leaning towards excessively optimistic idealism. At least I seem to know more than I care, having one gun, and hardly to never fire it. This makes awareness, safety, sharing etc. the last thing on their minds.

    Realistically, it may be tough to count as a majority, gun owners fitting those standards.

    However;

    If you add to the title gun owners owning more than four guns, you may improve the chances of exceeding a majority smoking the same pipe dream.

    Many gun owners were members of the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts!

    Or, some other right wing, homophobic, lash up!
