I always thought the reason the bangers stopped fist fighting and knife fighting and started shooting was because they lived in the city. They never had the chance to shoot a gun, to kill a squirrel or quail, or pheasant.
Once you know what a gun can really do you have a lot more respect for the finality it can inflict.
We must of had 15 different rifles in our gun cabinet. We used to go out as a familplinkingin beer cans and bottles. My Dad had a hand held trap launcher for shotgun practice.
We were all good shots.
