5 Ways to Forfeit Your Man Card

3) Being afraid to shoot a gun

A gun is a very powerful and dangerous tool that is capable of turning a human being from a living, breathing creature into a wrecked pile of lifeless meat. For that reason, a gun is a tool that deserves a significant amount of respect. Not every man has or even wants to own a gun, which is understandable. But no man should be AFRAID to handle a gun. What does that say about you, besides the fact that YOU believe that you're an incompetent, fearful little sad sack who has so little faith in yourself that you don't believe you can handle a gun without accidentally hurting yourself or others? Every man, at some point in his life, should learn to know his way around a gun, if not because it's potentially useful, then just for the sake of his own self-respect.
