Default How long have you been shooting for?

I am sure this question has been asked, but how long have you been shooting for? What or who got you into shooting?

I myself began shooting when i was very young. My dad claims when i was 5 years old i loved tearing up soda cans with the 22. I would sit in his lap and plink away. Whats your story?

I got interested in shooting in March of 2010. I bought my first gun in August of 2010........and I'm not young! I'm a newbie when it comes to shooting but I sure do have fun when I shoot. I have many years of lost time to make up!

BB guns and .22 rifles (supervised, of course) since I was about 6, handguns shortly thereafter. My dad and his friends shot something pretty much every weekend, so I did too.

I was about 4 when I first accompanied my grandfather shooting rabbits out of his lettuce patch, I started on the pesky little bastages when I was 6 with my dad's .22.
