Saturday morning plinking

Unlike urban areas where guns can be a big deal, in the rural West people grow up with guns, respect them, they’re part of the culture, and thus no big deal

These handguns belong to a friend who grew up in southern Utah, where I am now. One of the guns belonged to his dad and has probably been fired 500,000 times. He has a rifle that his grandfather owned. Like I said, it’s part of the culture – and a big difference between urban and rural culture.

And it seems odd that two of the handguns on the table would get you arrested in California for possessing (because of the size of the clips) while you can walk down the street in Utah with it in an open holster with no permit and that’s completely legal. Our gun laws are a crazy, contradictory mish-mash.
