I like all of them. They are all so inspirational and have some true meaning. I think my favorite one would have to be “Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician."

I have guns and guitars. I enjoy shooting as well as writing music.

Thanks for the insight.

I have a Rueger security 6 double action and a Mossberg 12awg 3 1/4 inch magnum pump shotgun. They protect my 6string classic guitar, 6 string steel string and my 12 string guitar. I love to play guitar and don't shoot while I'm playing nor do I play while I'm shooting.
