    All of the above, and carry on and off duty.

    Same as Bud, but don't really consider myself a collector.

    IDPA and IPSC shooting. I also conceal carry too.

    I selected all too Rick but would qualify that.

    CCW is of course all but a true specific. I tend to lump in target and compo' somewhat as they can overlap but I suppose too we can say that target = plinking too sometimes . But I guess you might say CCW and IDPA overlap as well!

    Hunting is relatively minor for me but I do like to have good tools available, both rifle and handgun.

    I included collecting simply because every gun I have is in a sense and by default part of my ''collection'' and some do not get shot a whole lot, but I enjoy the heck outa having them there for when I do

    I CCW. I also shoot scenerios when they have action shoots at the club but it's not timed like IDPA. So I don't know if that's Competition or tartget. I guess it's more like training for CCW. I also enjoyed shooting bowling pins once and plan to do that again.
    I also intend to hunt next year for the first time.

    Mainly CCW and Collecting now. I didn't check other, but I suppose Varmit control would be other, since I shoot Rats and Possums when I see them but don't hunt for them.

    CCW and of course target shooting to maintain marksmanship.

    I don't hunt, not because I disagree with it but because I don't have a need or the storage for the meet. I don't compete, again not because I disagree with it but because I don't feel the need. I don't collect right now, but someday when I'm rich and famous I'll start collecting again.

    CCW, Target, Collecting and Other...

    Other would be the Remington 870 with the 18 1/2 in barrel in the bedroom. Not really a target, CCW or collectors gun. Other = Bump in the Night Gun
