I shot a gun for the first time ever over Thanksgiving. I had my hunter’s license when I was 10 or 11, but never shot a gun. My Dad wanted me to start with a 22, but I weighted around 80-90lbs and figured it would knock me over so I declined. I’ve never hunted because I just don’t enjoy deer meat enough for me to want to kill one.
Shooting a gun was fun. Not the power of the gun going off, I actually found that scary, but the enjoyment of hitting a target. I used to shoot bow & arrow as a kid and always liked it and shooting a gun was less work and fast results. Plus you can’t say “blat! blat” it a gangster voice with a bow & arrow.
