From quirky pieces to rifles that aim with military precision, there's a type of gun on the market for everyone. Before you make your next firearm purchase, it's important to know which gun is best for your personality. You can choose a gun based on performance and feel, but having a weapon that perfectly matches you will make you feel even more empowered on the range.

Throughout our gun and personality quiz, we will place a little focus on your knowledge of weaponry. However, we really need to know more about you as a person to pair you with the perfect piece correctly. While your best friend might be better suited to pack Glock 19, you might be the type that needs something more substantial in your hands.

The way you respond to our questions about yourself will make sure that our sights are properly aligned on the exact sort of gun that would enhance your natural tendencies and your everyday needs. You might not need a gun for personal protection, but a versatile piece designed to scare the coyotes off of your property could work for you. 

Clear your mind, take aim at your target, and click the button when you're ready. Then, we'll tell you which gun you could be. If you were a gun, of course!
