    I don’t generally reveal what I own or how much ammo. I may discuss the subject on line under a screen name. One day my father in-law brought up the subject of conceal carry in Wisconsin because he new that I had the permit. It wasn’t long afterward that he TWO hand guns and his permit. I think he’s trying to tell me something. But as a rule, when I carry, I don’t discuss the subject, never tell. Unfortunately I had a fiery crash in my kayak. Damn those boating accidents.

    I share with trusted friends only in person.

    Pretty much sums it up.
    A lot of my relatives, Cousins, Aunts and uncles don't know too much, other than we hunt and such a bit.

    Couple guys at work know but they are also CPL holders as well.(inner circle)

    Depends on the person really. Most people around here know I have guns. How many I have and what they are shall remain a mystery, except to a certain few that share my level of passion for all things that go boom. I will admit that I enjoy posting pictures of my new toys, but all of those that I've posted about have since been lost in a boating accident.

    My wife and daugher know. One of my brothers knows. A couple buddies from church know. I don't avoid the subject, but it doesn't tend to come up around people I am not close to.

    I will rarely post, but will read (and hopefully learn) a lot
