    I thought I was young at 15, but I see several 14's here. First carry was a Colt JR. .25 auto in 1954. Didn't get a CCW till 1990 when I opened a jewelry shop - I wanted to be on the good side of the local LEO's.

    Let's see, grew up in an almost rural part of Michigan, say I started shooting long guns in my early teens, so ~ 30 years for that, and got into handguns in the late 80's/early 90's, so 15+ years for that.

    I started when I was 13 (39 yrs ago) with a friend's BB gun...My Mom wouldn't let me have anything until I took the NRA marksman program. I got my Cert of Competency at 16 and was out hunting at that point in time... I got into handguns on my 21st B Day (bought my own) and it was onward from there. I then got into full auto weapons at age 25 and onto my FFL and Class3 at 30 Yrs old......Been around the shooting industry retail, wholesale, and privattly ever since I can remember..

    The first handgun I purchased was a Walther PPK/S back in '80. I bought a Colt Combat Commander in '83. Had some work done to it by a gunsmith in Savannah when I lived there and added Pachmyr grips and some low-profile night sights. My first semi-custom handgun.

    Rifles are a different story starting back in the early '70s.
