Oh yea, many times. First gun I ever shot was a pump action double barrel shotgun..... I was no older than 10. My father taught me how to shoot. I didn't learn to reload and proper technique of caring for one until I got much older.

Yes, My dad taught me when I was a kid.

A teen, not a little kid. lol
Was he a hunter?
He was a hunter when he lived in Deadwood.  Once he moved to Cali, he was more into fishing.  But, he belonged to a gun club, and that is where he taught me.
My granddad was a deer hunter. And I have his old rifles. One is a double barrel. But never shot them or any gun.
It's a lot of fun at a gun club.   I could never hunt. I love animals too much.
Like you, I could never kill anything. I love animals and hate looking at cars with deers on top during deer season:(
Thankfully we don't see the deer on top of cars here.   How sad  :(
Sickening:(

No.  Nor do I want to, because I've never been able to aim anything else properly.

Yes.  I own a weapon and I have my conceal carry.

Yes, and I'm very good at it too!

Just didn't enjoy it. Guns ain't my thing.

answered Dec 1, 2016 by hnygrl (302,000 points)
Probably not mine either tho cousins want me to go to the range and try out their new Glocks :)
SO LOUD!!!! Even with ear protection it was just so dang LOUD I jumped every time someone shot. Although I was fine when it was my turn...something to think about.
Lol, losing my hearing is not in my game plan hehe;)
Oh no, there's ear plugs AND the over-the-ear thingies both. I just didn't like the noise the guns made. At all. It didn't affect my hearing in the least. Just...jarring...
Yes realize that but jarring sounds are too much ;)

Does a BB gun count? If so -then yes lol

A lot of my family are hunters but I didn't grow up around guns. Eventually I'd like to get my C&C

Yes, I have - many times. A while back, my friend owned several guns and we'd go to the shooting range for fun. My hands are small and I had problems firing this big revolver of hers - I needed two fingers to pull the trigger and I could barely hit the target. But using her little 9mm automatic, I was a seriously good shot. My mom used to joke that we should put my shot-up targets on the front door to deter burglars.

Shot at tin cans with an air rifle when I was young, my brother went to a gun club where they shot at clay targets

 thankfully my country doesn't allow for serious weapons

I fired assault rifles when I was in the military.

I shot assault rifles at the shooting range.

I had to do it in three different positions - in the standing position, in the foxhole position and in the prone position.

The assault rifles were only equipped with the common traditional iron sights to help the shooters to aim at the targets and to shoot at them.

I dislike the conventional iron sights, as you always have to align the front sight with the rear sight onto the target for an accurate shot.

Whenever I have to shoot at a shooting range, I always prefer to use a sniper rifle, which is equipped with a zoom lens sniper scope that allows me to be able to see the target very clearly, even at very long range/ distances.

You can hit a lot of targets with ease with normal assault rifles with iron sights, but it is definitely much easier if you were to use sniper rifles with sniper scopes instead.

If there is a new type of rifle optics technology available for me to use, I would certainly want to take advantage of it as much as possible to help me to be able to aim much more accurately and confidently.

In other words, I always prefer to use a new high tech weapon that can dramatically increase my marksmanship skills than an old-fashioned weapon that is antiquated and unable to help me to hit my target accurately.

That is a disturbing thought. But experience is always a good teacher.

Lord yes, hundreds of times.  My dad was avid bird hunter when I was young so I went with him.  I hunted a lot until my 30's and just lost the desire for it.
