    Nope. I generally don't put anything personally identifiable out there for the world to see. The might be a picture or two of me on facebook, but I didn't post them.

    I suppose I might. I don't usually take pictures of all of us (wife, kids and me) when we go to the range but it is good quality family fun.

    Not sure what the potential drawbacks might be but reading the thread I have seen a couple that I had not considered before.

    By the way, PM me and I'll add you as a friend if you want me to.

    Yes, because I have several students on my FB page. We also post instructional videos from time to time, and I even have a few of my son being taught how to shoot. I don't see it as an issue, it's never me pointing AT the camera, and seeing as how it's my vocation, it doesn't seem that out of line.
    Don't frisk me, I am the weapon.

    For those who think posting here is any safer than on facebook.

    I agree completely. There are photos of me shooting at a range. No gang banger style - holding the gun sideways or pointing it at the camera, but proper technique at a shooting range.

    Too many people are paranoid of what photos may exist of them. It's nonsense.

    It's fairly obvious if you look at my FB page that I am pro gun, although I have never posted pics of myself shooting. If any of my friends don't like it, they are free to not look.

    Paranoia in the gun world sometimes makes me laugh and shake my head.......

    Doesn't it seem a bit funny that those of you who voted "no" did so because of possible legal and privacy issue's?

    You do realize all that you post in forums such as this can be found quite easily and traced right back to you and everything about you, right?

    I can understand not posting things like this for professional business reasons for some people.
    But in all honesty I believe the more we make our hobby something to be weary of and hide from others....the more it becomes taboo for the ignorant. If we make it a hush hush darkened basement kind of activity....then it becomes something evil to those we need to educate IMO.

    I voted yes and have absolutely no worries about possible ramifications for doing so. Like others have said.....it's no different than talking about and posting pics of my other hobbies.
    If I was some tin foil hat wearing nut job who went off and shot up a Mall......then yes, all I've posted will be used against me.
    However if I use my gun in SD against someone who meant to do me severe bodily harm...... Then I'll let my lawyer handle the rest since I'm still alive to defend myself in the future. ;)

    I distrust FaceBook so much, I am no longer on it. Their privacy policy keeps changing and now, friends of friends can view your "private" photos and messages. It's just NOT worth it.

    No good will come of those types of photos being on FaceBook. If you are just dying to share them, maybe you can put hen on Flickr. At least that you can control (some). Even then, someone could download the photos and re-post them somewhere else.

    Then again, this type of question is just begging for the type of debate that surrounds the "OC or not 2 OC" debate.

    Right now, there seems to be more "gun related" news. Some good and some not. It may be possible that the antis are just waiting for enough of the "not good" news to accumulate, to jump out with a good "I told you so".

    While I am for openness in expressing 2A views, I ask that you do your best to keep in a positive light.

    I have a few gun-related pics on my profile, but as has been metioned here already, my privacy settings are set so that only people on my friends list can see them. And I am quick to ignore most friend requests. hehehe

    That said, those pics HAVE cost me once. When I bought my AR 15 I took it (along with a bunch of other stuff of course) out to the desert with the family and some friends to shoot it. We had a great time and posted a few pics on fb. It ended up causing some upset to a family in the church I am the pastor of, who ended up leaving the church over it.

    In the end it wasn't the end of the world; they found another church nearby that was good for them, so they weren't unduly affected. It did make me reassess how much firearms stuff I put on fb though!
    You know what? In my opinion, that was their issue, not yours. You are within the law and it is your life not theirs. Better off without them, IMO!
    I know that sounds harsh, but seriously, if they are that afraid, W/E about guns, it is no loss on your part.
    Personally, I think it is pretty cool!

    I voted NO for the same reason I don't have a FB account and have an unlisted/unpublished phone #; I am very private and do not allow many people inside my perimeter.

    Before I was married again the only photo of me taken in 10 years was on my drivers license, and I let my hair and beard grow long before it was taken so I did not look like I did everyday.

    I voted yes, and I have pics of my kids and myself shooting. I am a mom, and for me it is something we all really enjoy and I am not embarrassed or ashamed of it, so it goes on when I feel like putting them up. The only flack I ever got was from my mother who is an anti and thinks I'm nuts for wanting a gun. I now block her from seeing pics when I post them.

    I think as a woman and a mother it is good for others to see that people of ALL kinds enjoy shooting. I don't advertise that I carry, but I am a proud gun owner/2nd Amendment supporter/NRA member/etc. I also am a stay at home mom so I have no job worries and I do have all my pictures set to friends/networks only.
