Oh, for pity's sakes! I have boots older than some of you!
Unlike you, my boots are still in good shape
My first gun was a single shot Harrington & Richardson .410. Given to Mom by her Dad- on the condition that it would go to her first son. So I can truly say I have owned a gun since the day I was born.
And I would like to quash the rumor that my first gun was a matchlock musket....
