My wife asks me why at 62 did i start becoming interested in guns. I had an interest for a long time (since the 80's) when I lived in NYC it was near impossible to even have a gun in the home. When i moved to Texas in 90 I thought about it but because my kids where toddlers then, I kept it in the back of my head. In 2012 I decided to go into it, before my right to do so totally disappeared. So after an initial two hour range session with a good RESPONSIBLE friend. I decided i wanted to have a firearm. I picked a Ruger SR40C (My buddy is a big Ruger Fan I had the opportunity to shoot his wife's .38, his LC9, his SR9 and his SR40C (The SR40C was like love at first shot) so after a basic and a Texas CHL class and 12 hours of range time here i am , i have been carrying for about 11 months now.
