I grew up with firearms. My grandfathers both were into firearms too. One was an old west sheriff and passed away when I was very young. The other was younger and grew up in Utah. He had a few friends that were REALLY into firearms. So my father was raised up with firearms too.
My first recollection of firing firearms was shooting grandpa's cap and ball. I was about 5 at the time. Since then, a lot of powder and lead have gone downrange.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
