    Bought my first handgun @ 41. Grew up in a family where we went deer hunting every year, and was given a ruger 10/22 when I was 16. We would go plinking every now and then. Didnít have much exposure to handguns. I remember in college actually thinking that the only use for handguns was to commit crimes.
    Married and w/ some kids Ė your mindset changes. As another post put - I grew up.
    Started realizing the importance of the 2A and taking care of my family.
    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. Albert Einstein

    "People in Arizona carry guns," said a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."
