New member.. and recent lurker. :)
I grew up next to a gun collector in Northern California in the 70's. Learned all about reloading and casting bullets. And I saw some of the coolest early 20th century colt revolvers that I think you'd ever have the good fortune to see.
For almost all of my adult life I haven't really felt any need or desire to carry. The last 6 months however have seen a rise in crime and political activity that caused me to:
Get a CPL
Get NRA membership
Teach my teenage children about the proper respect for guns too.
Looking forward to learning all I can from you all. Thank you in advance for your patience as I learn my way around here and hopefully ask very few silly questions.
