Any other liberal / far left marksmen out there? I grew up back east where guns were pretty much non-existant except for the police. I never even
thought about owning a gun until I had been living in CA for many years and had gotten used to seeing guns and ammo for sale in every "sporting
goods" store and even in department stores like Sears, Kmart, Wal-mart, etc. (yes, I know that some of the big dept. stores have since changed their
policies in CA). Anyway, at the advanced age of 40-something, I decided that us lefties shouldn't be completely defenseless if/when the
survivalist/militia wackos decide that its Armageddon time. So I bought a rifle and went to the local rifle range every week for over one year. By
that point I was getting pretty good and decided to purchase two other rifles (still no handguns). At this point I'm now good enough that I'm
attending some advanced training classes ("Precision Rifle", "Tactical Carbine", etc.) normally taken by law enforcement types.
Just curious if there are any other lefty marksmen out there or if I'm a true "Army of One" (to borrow the US Army's marketing slogan)?
