I shoot for fun, but with personal protection mixed in. I was a competitive shooter (IPSC) until my knee gave out. I'm saving bullseye matches for when I retire.

I shoot because I can. Because I am a free man. A man without firearms is a slave or a victim. I choose to be neither.

I shoot because it's just fun.
Started when I was 6 and still at it. Did most of it with several different guns - Hunting, competition, plinking, self-defense.

I think it's something about the hand to eye thing... Being able to hit what you're aiming at.
Sort of satisfying to be able to still do that...:biggrin:

I shoot 1st for the fun of it. Then I do love the excitement of a Match, and last I shoot to protect myself and love ones. Being almost 60 and not being the fighter I once was I now carry to equal the odds in my favor.
