Brian, wish I had the talent to express myself like that, and the memories to share. Would love to hear more of yours. Mostly growing up I lived in a city, with my Dad being gone most of the time being in the USAF. I remember my first gun, bought with my own money at age 16, and the parents were not happy. It was an old Stevens 12g single shot with a shortened barrel. Still have it and it's still not pretty. Would walk the bayou just outside of town and shoot squirrels, crows and snakes. That area has been a shopping center and parking lot for 30 years. Looked a lot better as fields and trees.
