A lot has changed in the world since we ran a questionnaire like this one six years ago. There has been one economic meltdown and two gun buying booms – or maybe just one long boom. It’s an election year. The shooting sports have changed, too, as zombies and wild pigs spread across the land. Once we gather your answers and publish them in the July issue, we’ll have a picture of who Field & Stream readers are as shooters and gun owners.

To answer a survey question at random: Longest shot I ever took at an animal?
B. 100-200 yards. It was 125 yards at a very large wild pig in California with a CZ bolt action .30-06. The guide told me to imagine a football right behind the pig’s ear and shoot it. Whatever was behind the imaginary football was some very vital organ, because the pig fell over instantly.
