Brian Smith here from Tullahoma Tn. 75 yrs old. married to the same girl for 56 yrs. Man I love that girl and glad she has put up with me for all these years.
My first introduction to shooting anything was at Christmas in about 1947. I got a cork gun for Christmas. Man I loved that thing. I was 7 yrs old. It came with 3 corks. I shot and shot and shot. I was able to get good enough to be able to shoot the round decorative bulbs on the Christmas tree, when my mother put a stop to that. It was my first adventure ever with any kind of shooting. I have been hooked ever since. When my cork gun broke (Wonder what that thing would be worth today) I begged and saved pennies for a yr before I got my firsts BB gun. I was in shooters heaven.. smile. Been shooting something ever since. Saw my first air gun in about 1958 when My uncle brought home a pumper in 20 cal. Just in the last 5 yrs I been more interested in modern air rifles. I have had most of the better spring guns. Just thinking about seeing if I can squeeze into PCP out of my SS check. My dear wife say aww just go for it. Did I say man I love that girl?? ;o)
I’m a big Ted fan. Glad I found the site and thanks for letting me in… Brian Smith Proud NRA member…
