My dad is a cop and his Glock 23 was the first real gun I ever shot but he never got me into shooting or hunting. I owe that to my best friends family who just recently took me deer hunting in November where I got my first deer. But my great grandpa gave me an old double barrel .410 that was officially my first gun when I was 13 as a birthday present. Killed lots of squirrels with that lil gun and still have it to this day

Some guy shooting a snub .38 and 9mm behind a landfill people went to shoot in johnston , RI and I surprised him when I said "Hey " and he almost shot me spun around real quick and drew down lol I was like " whoa whoa " .

He said " jesus kid , don't sneak up on people shooting guns " and then asked me if I wanted to shoot a couple rounds and I said " Sure"

.38 spcl smith was the first gun I ever shot that day I was 10yo and the second was the 9mm same day and I had an empty 50 rd plastic ammo tray hopping from the first rd of the 9mm till the mag ran dry . At one point I had it 1 1/2 feet off the ground

It was over , I was hooked. My dad HATES guns even though he was a military man

My father was a hunter/shooter...I've been doing the same since I was a kid. I'll never forget the joy in his face when I shot my first deer.

When I was about 7 I saw 'Saving Private Ryan.'

I fell in love with the history and those brave soldiers. I was also fascinated with the multitudes of weapons they used and their uses. From there I began researching WWII history (weapons, gear, battles, etc..)

From there I branched to other wars. WWI, Korea. Vietnam...then at 12 I got my own gun and began to shoot clays/hunt.

Guys love machines...some have their cars...I have guns...how they are put together and function fascinates me and I respect them on a whole new level for what they are capable of if used in the wrong/right hands...

During the Revolutionary War, the same guns that fed families, drove out an oppressive government. Just fascinating.

Well I always thought guns were cool because of game but were scared of them when my uncle would have them around. I was raised by women who scared me off of guns except in games. Then I joined the US ARMY and loved guns more than I can say. And then a crazy Texas born and raised buddy in the Army started getting me into rifles other than the M-4 or AR platforms.

My buddy and I bought CVA Kentucky Percussion single shot pistol kits when we were 15 or so. Lovingly built mine and convinced my mom to get me some caps and black powder. We shot those things hundreds of rounds. Got a .22 rifle, then an 870. Hunted ducks and geese through high school. Got to college and joined the ROTC pistol team. Went to the US intercollegiate championships in '80 at the Air Force Academy. The rest is history.

I still have that CVA kit gun
