Reading the "What was your first gun?" thread was surprising to me since so many did not get their first gun until they were an adult. My step dad was a cop and my dad owned a chain of gun stores and wrote for Outdoor Life, plus I grew up in semi-rural Idaho so I had a gun with me since the age of 7. It's weird to think about not ever owning a gun until adulthood, but I am thankful for those people since they are desperately needed in today's society. Did you grow up with guns? If not, how did you get interested in them?
