I was 17 when I bought my first gun. It was a single shot 16 gauge shotgun and I still have it.

I am proud to live in a place where no one owns a gun. I am against guns. I have never seen a gun let alone touching it

I'm 13 and I don't have a gun. No one who lives at my house has one either.

I inherited my grandfather's 22 rifle in my late 20s. I had some friends take me out to a shooting range to learn ho to use it. It has been since passed down to my nephew.

I was about 13, we used to take our 22's out to the farmers field and shoot gophers. (collected 5cents a tail, which just about paid for our ammunition)  (If we timed things right, we could get to the farmers house just at lunch, and his wife would give us lunch :) ) Gave it up about 5 years later when the city surrounded us.

Don't own one unless you count a pellet gun I've owned since I was about seven (does that make it an antique now?), but most of my friends had .22s, and when we could afford it we would pool our nickles and dimes to buy a box of shorts.  Quick walk to the American River canyon and we were entertained for the day. 

Fired my first fun when I was about 4.  My father (what was he thinking) let me look at his loaded revolver and I promptly put a bullet thru the wall. 

And the Navy taught me how handle the M-14, the M-16, the M-60, the 1911 colt, and the 3.5 rocket launcher.  I have no desire to own any of them.

I don't own one, but I've fired them at gun ranges before.

As gay and liberal as I am, I'm still from the South.
