I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. Guess that's why I started the thread, in hopes of asking further questions from those on the other side of the equation.

I also find that odd and more common than in the past. I've wondered if some people are just trying to enjoy their rights while they still have them. I grew up in a small town and first had firearms for hunting and hunting-related practice (plinking) in those single digit ages.

I still haven't gotten a carry permit, though I plan to later this year, but I haven't really felt it was that necessary with MS's car-carry allowance. I am usually with my car/giant metal holster.

As a youth, I don't know that I ever really considered my rifles and shotgun as defensive tools; I think that thought didn't enter my mind until I started plinking with a pistol in my pre-teen years. That thought of "gun = weapon" was completely cemented when Granny gave me her little .38.

I got about 4 guns before I decided to do a carry permit.
Guns. Lots of guns. Then I got more guns. Then I got married and had a gun. Shoulda stayed single. Seriously, I've had at least one firearm since I was 12 years old

for me I grew up hunting so it was a 20 gauge at 10, picked up a 12 gauge at 18, and fired my first handgun at 20, bought one at 21, and received my chp a few months after that. I will say my girlfriend at the time took the chp class but didn't buy a handgun until she moved out of her parents house because they wouldnt let her have one. but her experience may be unique.
