yeah,,guns are fun even if you live in cali where they try to suck all the fun out!
It's much easier to be a gun enthusiast if you live in a rural area that ISN'T in California. Now that I live in the big city I have some extremely PC concious aquaintances that can't understand why I like to shoot for recreation. I always tell them,"It's just a country-boy thing" (not that city folk can't enjoy shooting).
When I was 9 I started shooting on an NRA competitive smallbore team after being selected to try-out while taking an NRA gun safety course. That was one of the funnest things I have ever done. I shot for a couple years until I got too heavily involved in athletics in middle school. Today, I regret straying away from competitive shooting. It was probably the only thing I could ever consider myself the best at. I never entered a competition where I didn't win first place by a large margin. The problem was, the cool kids were playing conventional sports and at that time I, of course, was heavily influenced by that.
