I used to hunt when I was younger. Lots of fond memories camping with my dad and brothers. When I moved out on my own my apartment was broken into and all my rifles were stolen. Some were family heirlooms. Never got them back. Never got back into hunting. Fast forward I'm 35 and seeing all the news on how guns are bad and that the 2A is wrong I did the only right thing and went to my sheriff's office and filed for my CCW. I am now the proud owner of 2 Ruger pistols The 9E and the LCP2. Don't judge me I needed something I could carry at work. I've put 300 rounds through both now and I'm very happy. I have done a trigger job to the 9E it was a little crusty from the factory but now its smooth as butter. Cold butter lol. I had a 700$ budget I could have just bought a Glock or something like a CZ. I settled on the Rugers because I have never owned or used a Ruger that I didn't like and it gave me a carry and training option for that price range. I decided since I'm getting back into shooting it was time to start teaching my son the ins and outs of gun ownership and why it's important. I'm very impressed with how he's doing. I am also big into 3d printing. I'm a writer for 3dprinterchat and I own and operate several machines. I'm Always open to business so if you have an idea you'd like to see made real hit me up. Check out my Rubberband SMG. Full auto Rubberband firepower for when you need to dominate at the office or chase your son around the house lol.
