There were no guns in my house when I was growing up. My parents were not anti-gun; they just did not have much experience with firearms. I remember that my mom would not let us get toy guns because she did not want us to get in the habit of pointing a gun (even though it was fake) at another person. I think one of her aunts or uncles entrenched gun safety rules with her as a very young child when they took her shooting a couple times.

I didn't get into firearms until adulthood. My dad and I took a gun class together and we've both been hooked ever since. My main motivation was self-defense but then I found that I really enjoy target shooting. We take dad-daughter trips to the range a few times a month now and my mom seems interested in coming with us sometime soon.

From as early as I can remember, my dad had a Remington 1100 and a Marlin model 60 in a fun rack on the wall. They were right in the kitchen and since the 1100 is older than I am and he bought it new I'm pretty sure it was there when I came home from the hospital the first time. He still has the same guns plus a 16 gauge double barrel that was my grandfather's on the same gun rack. He did move it to another room though.

No guns & no rules when I was growing up. Except my brother, Army Reserve (enlisted at age 16), but he did not own any. I did have a M1 in ROTC but it stayed at school.

When I turned 18 I bought my first (a pistol, a Erma Luger 22lr), a year later my first rifle. (a AR-7 22lr)
