LOL I wasn't quite that young :)But yes they did a very quick flip flop didn't they. Yes I got a 22 for my 12th bday,that I still own:)<quoted text>
I was shooting squirrels outta hickory trees when I
was 6 y/o, like dogs I can't ever remember not having a gun around but times, they are a changin', and fast.
I saved for my 1st deer rifle & not the swat rifle that seems to make the headlines now,but a ruger no. 1 .243 that I had for yrs.
Ama bit cityfied now(unfortunately),but yes I have always owned & kept firearms also, in fact the only time I haven't ,was when I was in the Military lol lol .
Yes I I have priced some stinger 22's recently & almost lol when the guy told me the price & a 3 weeks wait:)
I will admit I have not loaded much ammo in about 5 yrs. but if I ever go back to shooting more ,I guess I will have no choice.
I have lee loaders because they were purchased whenever we bought a new barrel for contenders. I had NO IDEA until recently what some of that stuff is going for? also have odd shotgun gauges. so it was always easier to make a few.
Last thing I pressed was .410 shells for my "house" firearm, a rem 1100,modified a bit ,shortened barrel ,pistol grip,almost everything else is kept in a safe at a friends business.
Happy hunting . Rick
