I've had my 22 pistol since I was a kid. I used to shoot with my dad all the time.

But as you all know just recently I've been getting back into it and starting to aquire new toys.

I had my .22s when I was in college, but was never around to shoot them,

It wasn't until this year that I joined a range with my dad and started going regularly.

Still need alot of practice especially with the .45 handgun

2 years. First gun that i got was a Desert Eagle IMI 9mm when i was 16. My pops gave it to me as a way to make me grow up. Now i own an HK USP Compact, and a Walther P99 and the Deagle. Haven't fired the Walther and the HK yet. Also, i usually go to Outdoor World in Gurnee to go shooting. Can ya guys list a place to go besides Gurnee? Another question. On my Deagle, it has a clip with 17 rounds, and another with 13. Isn't there a law where a clip is only supposed to hold 10?

As soon as I learned about life & death, and where hamburgers come from, I was taught how to handle a gun. My Step-Dad and I went out with a half dozen different weapons, and he let me shot as many shots out of each as I wanted... the whole time demonstrating and talking about safety, and how you only aim at something if you intend to fire. I think the biggest gun we took was a 9mm. All in all, it was the BEST way to educate a kid about firearms. He could've left a loaded pistol out in the open without having any worries about myself or my brothers getting in trouble with it.
