2 years ago my mom and dad bought me a 17HMR!!! This is not a deer gun it's a gopher gun. This is not my first gun. This is my third. When I was 6 I got a BB gun. When I was 8, my dad made a gun for my uncle but I used it for 3 months. Then I got my 17hmr. Now this summer I finally get to used it after 1 year. So I am so happy=http://=http:// Now I have to wait for winter to leave.
