I am from Tennessee, age 66.5, and have been in 36 states (including Hawaii) plus Denmark and Sweden.
I grew up in a small town and had a .22 rifle and a .410 shotgun at age 10 and there were ample places to target shoot, and I basically self taught myself without any gun training.
I was in the military draft for Vietnam in 1970 but my number wasn’t selected. When I look back at that time period I sometimes wished I had served but I had no idea where Vietnam was nor what had happened there.
I worked in the Nuclear Power industry in Quality Assurance for 40 years and am now retired.
I got my first concealed carry permit in 1980 and am a NRA member.
