Hi Friends
 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…
