    I can't even imagine what it's like to grow up without guns. Everybody in my family, as far back asanybody knows, has had guns and many have done some gunfighting with them. I was 8 when I got my first gun of my own, but I had been shooting for many years before that. Of the current generation, my nephew killed his first turkey at about 4 and his first deer at 5, with some help holding up the shotgun and rifle. He currently ownes more guns guns, knives and bows than most members here and he's about 13. His sister got her first deer last year at about 9 or 10. My wife's family is the same.

    Bills going unpaid? Some other extreme?

    What are you referring to???

    I started this thread for those whom have sentimental attachment to a specific firearm for whatever reason. You obviously dont, thats fine; thanks for your unrequested point of view

    Ive had friends growing up that had families of such life style. Luckily, my parents did trust my friends parents enough that I was able to fire certain 22lr rifles and once in a blue moon a Walther 9mm. Those experiences were my first ever with rimfire and centerfire guns - thank god for that at least

    Buck Marks are endless amounts of cheap (at one point) fun! And the countless barrel lengths and options make them really intriguing/unique
