I'm a 60 year old who purchased a gun for the first time, not out of fear, but I don't like the idea of not being able to purchase a gun if and when I ever wanted to do so (if it comes to that). I am amazed at the fun I am having at the range and learning about guns and shooting. It also doesn't hurt to know if I have to protect my family this is a nice option to have. I'm looking forward to being an accurate, knowledgeable shooter and responsible gun owner. Forums like this will help me achieve that goal.
