I can understand that spartan!!
when I was younger, I joined the T.A. (kinda like your reserves) JUST so I could shoot their rifles!
(didn't last long, i'm not a lover of authority figures and got kicked out, but the shooting was awesome!)

16 ga. bolt action, 20 ga. pump, 22 semi auto, 357 mag and a pellet gun if you want to include that.
Used to hunt rabbits,squirrels and quail but since outfitters came in and bought land I hunted on
years back I no longer can hunt there. My guns mostly just set on the gun rack collecting dust.

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism
can make you narrow minded to all possibilities no matter how unconventional.

and from the other side ...

My grandfather and his two brothers all committed suicide.  And I've struggled with chronic depression most of my life.

It would not be a good decision for me to have one.

I have a cop who is the head of the gang taskforce, two sherriff deputies, and a game warden that live on my road so crime isn't a problem in my nieghborhood so mostly from animals you never know when a black bear might want to get frisky with the misses.
