    I have pictures of me shooting skeet, and training others. Not so much anything else.

    Given several other factors, my facebook status really isn't going to help or hurt me in a court of law. I potentionally have enough against me anyway just with my family history.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    I would rather not post pictures on facebook, but it is an easy way to keep the in-laws up to date without having to actually talk to them.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    I would post pics of me shooting. My facebook pictures can only be seen by people I have added to my friends list and all of those people I actually know personally and they are not surprised with pics of me and guns.

    Although I suppose mods or something on FB can see the pics but who cares really. I dont have anything to hide nor do I care what others think of me or my lifestyle.
    When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    The fact that I'm an avid shooter is a given so I see no harm in posting pictures of me shooting... as long as what I'm shooting is legal!

    I post them in my FB all the time. They're all of me shooting legally and being responsible. Most are competition so there are range officers present too.

    They're set to friends only but I really don't care if other people see them.

    BugDude doesn't do MyFace or SpaceBook, or whatever they're called. If I haven't talked to people in X years and haven't kept up with them, then there is probably a reason. My wife does it to share pictures with our family. Seems silly to me...of course, she thinks the things I spend my time on are silly too. Go figure.

    i have gone back and forth with this question... pro-cons... i still don't know the right answer... especially after reading this.... but someone answer this question...

    I'm a college student who will be looking into starting the SCCC (students for concealed carry on campus) the college i attend is in detroit and a rough neighbor hood. So i will automatically be know as a pro-gun person.... What does it matter if my friends see it posted online, or see me talking about it face to face?

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    That right there's an admission of guilt.

    Another admission of guilt. Whatever the hell DC is, probably a chronic disease you get from using drugs.

    Send all your guns to me and turn yourself into the authority's now and make a plea deal.

    I would say "no." I think facebook is a scam set up by the government to monitor all you gun nuts.
