I'm 17 and my dad bought a handgun when I was three, S&W Sigma 40. He bought it after he left the Army and started working as a Correctional Officer in a small county jail where we would see ex-inmates everywhere, including church so he bought it for home defense. I shot my first gun at Boy Scout camp, a bolt .22 of some sort. I knew he had a handgun but never shot it until I was 15. Just after I turned 15 he bought me and my brother a .22 mag; and now I am getting a Mosin-Nagant for my 17th birthday.
