A post by Tombo and all the hub-bub over the guy carrying the gun in Phoenix while Obama was in town, started me thinking about guns.
Growing up, I was very, very afraid of guns and did not want to be near one. One day, I decided I had to beat that fear of guns so took a gun training class at Shooter's World where I learned gun safety and how to shoot and take care of a gun. Taking that class, made me lose my fear of guns (I'm really afraid of snakes too but have no plans of getting chummy with one in the near future).
I never became some whacko nut job over guns and/or gun rights but I did buy my own gun (a Glock 19)
which has not been fired in ages and I really need to get it out and go shooting. I don't even know if Shooter's World or something like it is still around.
I bet most of my friends have no idea I have a gun.
