    Ive created a monster

    Last spring I took my brother in law shooting. And he fell in love with the sport. So he bought a 22 pistol to see if he would really enjoy shooting more and he did. A few months later he got a ruger 10/22. And now just purchased a Smith and Wesson m&p9c. And soon he said he will be looking for a 12 ga shotgun. This is within the last 6 months. I think Ive created a monster folks. Have fun and stay safe.

    he-he, me too. I got my brother to go shooting with me less than 2 years ago, he had 1 handgun for the house.
    Now he's closing in fast behind me for who has the most toys!

    And this is a bad thing? Remember monsters need hobbies too, it keeps them from eating the local population.

    Now, if he will go create one, and each one of those will go create one, and so on and so on, mathematically speaking things will be looking better for us shortly.

    You didn't create a monster. To me a monster is one who uses a gun to do evil. You planted an oak sappling and it has taken root. Remember to help it grow strong it should be well nourished.
