Im 19 , turning 20 in april

Pops taught me how to shoot with a BB gun at 10, at 11 I was outshooting all my uncles and Killing rats and racoons like nobodies business!

I know some of the older people frown upon this but im pretty sure all the young generation agrees with me, I got really interested in Firearms from videogames, needless to say, when I purchased my own first firearm, I completely stopped playing video games, nothing like the real thing!

I'm 19, 20 in June, only a little over a year to go yes!!!

Anyway, my family is pretty much non-gun, so It's just me. In scouts I dod the shotgun merit badge and shot 38/50 clay pidgeons that day, which I was told was very good since that was the first time I had ever fired a gun.

Then later when I was 16 my parents got me a standard Ruger 10/22 for christmas. I have bought a few air pistols since but am saving up for when I turn 21 for a nice Glock, screw the alcohol, you can bum that off anyone, and I don't drink, so it doesn't matter anyway.

I guess im young enough to post here. I turned 21 in March. Have been shooting for a long time. I own a couple of 22's, an AR, couple shotguns, couple hunting rifles, couple C&R's and a couple handguns through IFT's. My most prized rifle is my custom Surgeon .243 winchester rifle that I shoot in long range comps. I enjoy doing all of my own machine work and building my own rifles. In the past few years I have gotten involved in both pistol and rifle competition and have really enjoyed both sports. I have met some great people along the way.

I'm 17 and a relative gave me a Remington Model 37 about a year ago. My dad and I took it to the range a few months ago and now I'm addicted!

My parents were both in the Israeli military and later vowed to never let a firearm in their house. Lets just say I changed that.

I'm the mastermind behind all the parts coming in the mail for my dad's future CA-legal AR-15. He owns it, but I will be the one who "plays" with it.

I posted in the "New Members" section, but I figure I should post in here as well, seeing as I'm only 20.

I don't think there was actually a specific time I actually got interested in guns, as my dad had them since before I was thought of, and he made sure to teach me the ways of the responsible gun owner since I was able to talk.

I believe my first actual shooting experience was at about 4 years old, in the back yard with the .177 air rifle hitting soda cans. (actually I think they were mostly beer cans but I digress lol)

I don't technically "own" any guns yet, but the ones that are "mine" are a 20ga. pump, .22lr Marlin model 60, and in 3 more days, a .22lr Beretta Neos.

I think 28 is considered young? Pretty sure! i just started out (a few months back) and own a Ruger Sr9 and a Mossberg 500a. Next purchase will either be a .357 revolver or a .22 rifle or pistol... guns are addicting!

Depends whos paying for it. If your parents pay for it, go for an AR15 but if youre paying, go for a 10/22

If your not living in California right now, cant go wrong with a Colt, Bushmaster or a HK. Many more, but those are some of my favorite on the top of my head.

Or build your own!

Currently, I'm back in CA, gotta split my time between families 2000 miles away..., But what's the best CA-legal AR-15? Don't seem to like the top-down internal mag receiver like the Bushmaster one.

im 24

if you looked at me you wouldnt think id be into guns.
buy as honest can be i got into guns all by my self, NONE of my family was ever into guns, in fact my mom disliked em and my dad passed away at a young age, so i didnt have any influence towards liking guns, but from now on my spawn (when ever they come) will be baby ramboes! ive spread my sickness to some of my friends but none of them are as serious as me, im pretty much all alone in this hobby : ( but i love it!!

and ps i found calgunners on my own as well : )

I'm 25. I consider that young. My first gun was actually a rifle. Crossman $40 dollar pump BB/pellet rifle when I was 13 years old. I used to shoot at anything small and challenging I could find in my back yard. knock down lemons by shooting at them at the stem, shoot at flies, cigarette buds, marbles, the o in coca cola cans etc.. I currently have a springfield armory xd9 and a ruger 10/22. I just picked up the 9mm 2 days ago and have had the 10/22 for about 4 months. I'm waiting for my scope rings, bipod and soft case to arrive.

I am also 19. The day I turned 18 I learned what the California cool off period was with the purchase of my big 5 special - Mossberg 500.

I was originally pulled into the firearm realm through the Scouts. And I was pulled into the Scouts by my marine father. Thats where I learned what firearm safety really meant, as well as what being a true red blooded American meant

I am currently a member of the NRA and reaching towards my degree in political science and history in hopes that one day (which could be tomorrow if I were able to get connected to the right people) be able to protect the second amendment and our rights as free Americans.

In the last week I yet again entered the far fetched and oh-so-fun cool off period with my new DD's ranch Stag arms complete lower AR-15 assembly (still need to find an upper). And I hope that this is the second of many firearms that I will come to own.

I turned fifteen years old a couple of months ago, and I got into guns from a a friend of mine who goes hunting, and my science teacher.

Unfortunately, I don't own any firearms, mainly because whenever I've asked my mother about owning a .22 rifle, she's said that she doesn't think it's a good idea to have a gun in the same house as a teenager, despite the fact that I'm a member of a youth club that shoots every Friday. She's pro gun though, and says she might get a revolver for personal defense when I move out.
