shot a .410 when I was somewhere in the 7-9yo range I think...

I think once I hit 10 or 12 I really started shooting trap etc...though.

I was 42 years old when i shot my first gun.
I grew up and lived most of my life on Long Island in NY. Moved to Tampa Fl for a few years. Never even had the thought of shooting a gun.
Moved to WV. Nuff said

West Virginia is the only state where you need a firearm in order to get a drivers license.
