Well, a few months ago (around summer I think), my friend took me out shooting. His S&W M/P .40. I thought "Hmmm, that was fun, and loud..." Then later a group of us went camping and shot his gun again. At that point I starting thinking to myself that I need to get a gun, it's just to much fun. Now he says I'm turning into a gun nut. My first purchase was a Taurus Millennium Pro PT145 (a .45). It was a nice little gun that would let me conceal carry (when I got that). I proceeded to get my Washington conceal carry license, and worked on getting my Oregon one as well (I now have both). After that I got myself a Ruger P89 (9mm), TWO Mosin-Nagant, and a Marlin Model 60. So I now daily carry my Taurus, and only carry the Ruger once in a while. That's my brief introduction.
