Hi, new forum member checking in.
I'm in my 40's, am married to a wonderful woman (17 years) and we have 5 fantastic kids. My wife and I are both avid gun-owners, shooters, and we both have our CPLs.
As a child, I grew up with plenty of guns in the house (my dad owned a gun store at one time too) and have always enjoyed firearms.
My wife is a range-master/range security officer at a local shooting range/tactical training center, and her marksmanship is, well, she's like Annie Oakley. I can't compete. (Though I will never stop trying!)
I joined the forum primarily because I have a legal question (which I'll post in the appropriate section in a minute) - I did spend a good deal of time reading through the archives looking for an answer, but couldn't find anything, so forgive me if it's there and I missed it.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
