My first rifle was a gift from my grandfather, the day I was born. I have shot, honestly, since I was big enough to hold rifles and pistols. My parents used to buy me a brick of .22's and hand me an old Winchester bolt action rifle, this was what my summer breaks from school consisted of.

keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect
themselves against tyranny in Government...." - Thomas Jefferson
