Remmy- I feel your pain (Gee, who said that?
) When I was 20, I was an Army 1LT. Controlled enough firepower to remove large parts of a small city- but could not go to a store and buy a freaking box of .45 ammo to get in a little extra practice. I have a 14 yr old granddaughter that has been my shooting partner for 4 years- and to be legal, I have to have written permission from her mom in my wallet.
Hang in there- better days are coming.
