At the ripe old age of.....oh,never mind.......someone convinced me that guns were not the killers I thought they were and took me to a shooting range in March of 2010. I've been hooked ever since.........2 years now.

Daddy did. When he wasn't working, he was shooting or reloading. Remember being a little kid loading shells into boxes. Watching him shoot competitions.

I never had a father, i wouldnt know what he looked like if i was to see him,my grandmother raised me all of my life. I had a neighbor down the road take me under his wing, i loved that man. He taught me how to shoot and hunt when i was 10. The first gun i ever shot was a marlin .22, the first shotgun that i shot was a double barrel 12 guage, " and i pulled both triggers at the same time" o_O

"my" first gun was a daisy 10 pump bb gun and roamed the countryside with that gun. Then whenever i reached 12 my grandmother bought me a ruger 10/22, and i still have that rifle.

Well, I did some hunting as a kid with my step-dad. That had something to do with it. My father in law is big into guns...that probably had another little something to do with it.

But I think the biggest thing that has me interested in guns...

I am a big fan of history. And history repeats itself. And when....not if some parts of history do repeat...well I'd rather be armed than unarmed.
