My uncle thought me the fishing, but my grandad was a hunter.
So when I was about 12, he thought me to shoot 22 cal rifle.
Two years later I was taking his 8-57 (mauser / zastava) scoped carabine, and was shooting targets (plinking) in the woods, 12 gauage Berreta shotgun, and pistol.
Sometimes I would take the guns without asking, turned it back in the locker, cleaned after use, but he always turned a blind eye on it.
Probably, he was doing the same in his youth. So he was kind of approving.
Now in my mature years, I am in target shooting.
Although I woud like to hunt, I have spare to time to adjust for hunting season. So, target shooting at range, only. whenever possible.
