Friend and awesome gunchick Jennifer shares the story of how she became a gunnie and asks the rest of us to do the same, so here goes.
My story is actually a non-story. I grew up around guns. They were no big mystery to me. My first memory of actually shooting was at Scout camp, when I was 8. Dad had a rifle and a shotgun while I was growing up, and I was probably 5 or 6 when he went on his last elk hunt, and before he left, he taught me a couple basics about guns. I got the gun I truly learned marksmanship on for my 15th birthday. I started buying guns for myself when I was 21, and it's been all downhill from there.
That's basically the story, for what it's worth.
