    A Life Long Hobby

     I grew up in a home where guns were not present.  My mothers side of the family were all hunters, as had been my mother.  I took a firearms safety course before my parents would allow me to have one.  I saved up my money and my parents bought me a Mossberg...

    Canadian Target Shooter

    I like to take my Norinco copy of the M-16 to our target range-Fun to shoot. I also like my Tokarev 7.62 X 35-although I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it.lol. Don't get a lot of time for practice due to the seasons and work etc-maybe when I retire.
