There's different kinds of gun guys.
Some are collectors. They never shoot their collectible guns.
Some are hunters. They shoot to sight in their guns before a hunt.
Some are recreational shooters. This includes guys that shoot IPSC, USPSA, 3 gun, etc...
Some are pro 2a guys. They will buy a gun simply to preserve their right to own a firearm.
Just because someone buys guns to collect, doesn't make them any less a gun guy than any of the others.
