I am curious about everyone's experience with firearms. This has nothing to do with government gun control. Please use the Gun Control thread for that discussion. The following questions are what I am mainly interest to learn with this thread.
1. What level of experience do you have with firearms?
2. How knowledgeable are you on firearms? Is your knowledge brief, extensive, or in between?
3. Do you know the difference between repeating, semi-automatic, fully automatic, and machine gun?
4. Do you understand the different cartridge designators?
5. What are your thoughts on you personally owning or using a firearm? Please leave government policy out of this.
Please provide supporting details for each answer except question 3.
