I'm 26, guessing I'm among the older crowd in this thread. Never could imagine that.
I'm actually new to firearms. I always had interests in guns, but never had the opportunity to try it until last year. The time shooting was a 1911, and I knew I was hooked. I think I can say that video games also helped me all these years to keep the interests.
I currently have a custom built AR15. It's been working great, and shot a couple of hundred rounds through. I'm in the process of figuring out doing some plinking. I figure it'd be more fun
