I didn't know you were from Indiana Rog. I always just assumed you were born and raised in Maryland. Especially, since you are such a Terps. fan. What part of Indiana?

I was born in Henry County and we moved to Florida after my 2nd grade.

My first "Assault Rifle" was my Ohio Grandfather's Steven's pump .22 with the tube feed. it shot .22 long & short.

A few years later an Indiana Uncle gave me a single-shot Benjamin air rifle. I was a beautiful gun with lot's of brass, long barrel and stock. Problem was I was too small to cock that large air cylinder that ran under the barrel. I always had to havean adult do it.

Ha, in those days 22 shorts were a penny. Funny, it's much easier to come up with a nickel for a 22 long now.

At age 10 I received a Winchester Model 12 16ga shotgun for my birthday. Of course that was the mid-50s and we lived in the burgeoning metropolis of McIntosh, AL.

Yup! And we didn't live in Mom's basement until we were 30 (Hard to do in South Florida) - But - We never imagined doing so.
