      Being 42 and just having bought my first handgun, I guess I'm a late bloomer.

      However, I guess that means that I just have to shoot more to catch up to all of you...

      I did not grow up with guns around us...the grandparents have them and did "the boys" but they were kept a secret from us girls (women).

      I'm pretty sure I was 4 first time I fired a gun.

      there's a wicked cool custom near where I am currently at. It is tradition that when a baby is on the way the father or grandfather is to go out and purchase a rifle, he presents it to the baby BEFORE the child is even named.

      I am adopting this tradition, as it's simply awesome. thinking about some sort of bolt action 22lr or something, nothing absurd. kids are a long time down the road for me though

      I forgot to mention I am now 67 years young, and still have the model 38 S&W. Still shoots great.

      Had my first rifle when I was in my teens. Winchester .22 single shot, bolt action. Sold it to buy the .38.

      I was into weapons (primarily shotguns and rifles) at an early age. My first pistol was when I was 18, a S&W Model 15 Combat Masterpiece courtesy of the USAF Security Police. I really enjoyed that revolver and have bought and sold who knows how many since.

      I got a security job days before my 21st birthday, and the boss told me if I had a gun, I could get more work, so I went and bought a Taurus 83 in nickel. A total POS, and if they were all as bad as it was, I wouldn't have gotten into the hobby. I soon got rid of it, and bought a Dan Wesson Model 15-2, and I was a happy guy.

      I got into handguns when 2 people were murdered at a mall in suburbia by where I lived. These people were stabbed to death in a bathroom because one of them looked at the murderer wrong and for bumping into the murderer. Killed for something so senseless. At that point, I decided that it is going to be me or the bad guy and I took the necessary steps to make sure it is me.

      For my 18th birthday my dad got me a Sig. p220. I love the gun, it's a hell of a thing - huge and powerful. I've never felt comfourtable carrying it concealed. Since then (I'm 22 now), I've owned a walther p22 and a Kel Tec P3AT.

      I grew up around guns and qualified with pistols in the military, but I wasn't really "into" them. After I retired and started looking around for a hobby, that's when I developed an interest in handguns. I have one right now and a couple of more on the way.

      My Dad was a LEO. It sort of runs in the family that I started in my early years.

      I got a 10/22 at 9. Lern ed to shoot paper really well by 11 then started shooting squirrels and rabbits. By 15 I had a Rem 700 .270 and moved up to deer and hog hunting. At 18 my dad gave me a Ruger Security Six .357. Got pretty proficient with that shooting mainly .38's. At 19 I joined the USAF and scored Expert Marksman buying my first semi-auto at 21 a Springfield 1911.

      I remember my buddy was huge into guns in High School. He brought Guns & Ammo Magazine to school all the time. I let me borrow one for a study hall. It had a Beretta 92FS on the cover and I instantly fell in love with it. I was about 17 years old. I swore one day I would own one. I have 3 handguns now, which none of them are the Beretta 92 FS. Oh well, someday.

      At 10 I got a Ruger Security Six .357 4". It was a fine pistol and I wish I never sold it. At 18 my dad gave me a Colt Commanding Officer's Model .45. I still have the Colt.

      I guess 51 isn't so bad.
