When I saw the movie "Commando" as a child or maybe when my dad bought me my first dart gun that resembled a 1911.

It all started years ago when I opened a half way house for mistreated or abused battle rifles. Every gun deserves a good home and to be loved.

I turned 30.

I owned a Daisy 880 powerline as a kid, shot .22s at camp when I was 10ish and then never touched a firearm until I was 30 lol! I guess you can call it a quarter life crisis....

It actually started as a little kid when I was not allowed to own a gun. My folks were cheap, what can I say?

Once I started making decent money I started purchasing guns. The first one I bought was a Llama 1911 clone in 9mm. It turned out to be a POS so I traded it for a post-war, alloy frame P38.

And I'm still buying guns! I just like having them around, and I love shooting my C&R stuff whenever possible.

Add 10+ years to then and I'm teaching my sons & daughter to shoot, then friends of my children, nephews, nieces, my friends along with rifle matches with my kids, pistol matches with my kids and hunting with the kids.

My collection seems to have grown according to my age.

I remember decades ago talking to a woman that said she would only go sailing with a man who's boat was longer (in feet) than he was old (in years).

So it's my view that the Politically Correct firearm owner should have more firearms as they get older.

One firearm for every 5 years is a good start but one firearm for every 2 years is better.

Of course my collection will reduce as the appropriate firearm goes to a son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter or other relative in need.

Friend took me shooting at Angeles, I believe one was a Henry lever action 30-30 the other a Remington 12 gauge pump. Such a rush, I've gone through a couple dozen or more since then and have converted many others along the way.

Books, books, and more books. Liturature, photographs, and illustrations have taken me farther than even the Marine Corps did. Edson Range is a great place to get to learn how to shoot though

Been into it as far back as I can remember. Used to go to a lot of army surplus stores. Loved everything guns. Toys, pellet rifle, old army surplus stuff. Just always been into it. I have never lost interest in it. Buying my first gun when I was 21 was AWESOME. It's been 7 years since that day and the collection has only grown

Growing up, my parents were always pretty anti gun. Was never allowed to have bb guns, etc. Friend in college got me into shooting. Bought my first gun, a mini-14 when I was 19.

Grew up in North Hollywood right around the corner from what use to be B&B Gun Shop. First time I ever had a gun pointed at me I was walking home from a day of elementary schooling (was probably gang related). Thankfully nothing came of the incident and I never really told my parents until long after moving from that side of NoHo.

After seeing my first real gun though I wanted to know more about them but my mom wouldn't have anything of it at the time so I kept it a secret and snuck gun mags into the house (which cost me more whoopings than any dirty mag my mom found). Then 1990 came around and I was introduced to Punisher Armory and began using the comic series as cover for my growing interest in guns. Somehow my mom didn't mind the comics. : )

Funny thing is the guys at B&B were pretty cool and even though I was just a young kid they always let me in the shop to look around. Some of my first lessons on the dangers of guns came right out of that store. It was my dream to buy my first gun from them as a kid...but we all know what happened to B&B after the great NoHo Bank Robbery.

This journey started way before I was old enough to pee straight let alone buy a gun.

A bum stole the USMC flag hanging from my apartment patio over 4th of July weekend. I came outside in shorts, flip flops, a tshirt, and armed with a kitchen steak knife and my rubber/plastic M16. I realized it wasn't wise of me to run around the complex chasing him like this so I went inside and waited for him to walk past my patio again.

After waiting, and losing my buzz, I went inside and realized that if something were to ever go down I'd be helpless and totally unarmed. So I bought my first gun shortly after, a new Glock 19. I bought the rest over time and now I regret not buying more because of what is going on...

my addiction started with all my riding buddies going dove hunting and i borrowing a shotgun to shoot. Then all of a sudden 3 weeks later i get a check from uncle sam, come to find out if your parents pull SS while your under 18 you get a check as well, so i manage to get a shotgun and a 243. then it was all downhill from there, more rifles, bows, pistols ammo, etc etc etc

My father was a CHP officer and as far as I can remember back he paid me too polish his uniform brass and clean his 6" blued Colt Python , I think I started cleaning the pistol around 8. Its now my prized possession, and it looks like it was carried for duty for nearly 30 years, I was born in 63, and I believe its a 1964 model.

No addiction.

Guns are specific tools for specific circumstances.

Like a fire extinguisher for the home, they are created for a very narrow circumstance.

That is why they are specific to their purpose and not "general use"

You don't shoot for precision with buckshot from a shotgun, nor do you go into battle armed with a .38 snubbie.

Though I have always wondered what would happen if birdshot WAS used on the battlefield. Not to stop or injure enemy soldiers, but to annoy/blind/suppress them. If you've ever shot birdshot into the side of a mountain and see how wide the dispersion is... you know what I'm talking about.

Always had guns around. The neighborhood where I grew up was post WWII boom town and the neighbors had a small range for shooting .22 in their back yard. I think I was about 6 or 7 when I first shot a .22 short out of the single shot bolt action Sears rifle that was my brother's. That was back in the mid 50's. Shot my first 4I and shotgun when I was about 8 up in the mountains. Always enjoyed shooting but did not own any of my own guns until about 6 years ago.

When my cousin got back from Iraq, he took me to the range, that started it. Then I went shooting with my coworkers, that cemented it.

It started with a Glock. I had my wife shoot it and she was hooked. Now we own rifles and handguns and go shooting almost every weekend. What a great sport. The gun is loaded and i feel safe!!!
