Grew up in a small/tiny town in TX. Lived & worked all over the country, chasing the dollar - most moves involved changing jobs. Learned to shoot before I started school. Guns all over the house when I was a kid, most loaded. Guns all over my house now - the only ones unloaded are in a safe. Taught my daughters to shoot while they were in grade school, & about gun safety. I mostly enjoy handguns of all sorts, with emphasis on personal protection, self- & home-defense. I'm a news junkie, & try to keep involved with politics & things related to personal freedom & 2nd Amendment issues.
