I am 19 years old. I am growing up in a generation that is taught that anything that is dangerous is a bad thing and that people everywhere are out to hurt them, and that they have to be sheltered from the world to be safe. I try to swim upstream from this crap. My parents have taught me to see the world for what it is, and nothing more. I have been around firearms all my life. Growing up there were two loaded long guns in my house, a M1 carbine and a Model 12. My mom hated them but relied on them when she was frightened. I respect and fear guns. Treat them as if they are loaded and never play around with them. The only thing I can do is help teach my friends and people around me that guns aren't dangerous unless you are careless with them. (2 negligent misfires last month here alone.) My father has given me his old Colt Trooper and the families 39-A. I have bought a shotgun and carbine. I love the discipline and recreation of firearms. The discipline of long range target shooting and the recreation of a .22 It's something that all young men/women should experience. We need to have better education of firearms. Too many people don't know anything about firearms. So, anyway enough philosophy. My question for all you younger (under 21) shooters. What do you carry and posses? I carry what I am allowed to carry by law. A flashlight and a knife. (Olight M20 and a Zero Tolerance 0200) These are my long guns. (Mossberg 535, Marlin Golden 39-A, CAI WASR-10) Btw, thanks for this site and all of the things I am learning from it!
