Hi, my name’s Kevin Creighton, and I’m a shooting sports enthusiast gun nut.
It started at a young age, shooting a .22 rifle with my cousins on their farm outside of Calgary, Alberta. I kept it under control during high school, but I quickly developed a reputation as “The guy who knew a lot about guns.”
It wasn’t until I started college that things started to get out of hand. I hung out with my friends at the gun range, shooting West-German surplus PPK’s, Smith and Wesson 42’s, and then things went downhill: I shot my first heavy duty revolver.
I went from there to shooting my father-in-law’s guns that I inherited when he passed away. Once I shot a one-hole group with his old Smith and Wesson K22, I had to have MORE. I bought a CZ. Then a P3AT. Then another CZ, and before your know it, I had a locked cabinet in my bedroom dedicated to nothing but guns.
I started to spend time outside of the house with people who shared my addiction, talking about split times and acceptable use of cover. In search of bigger highs, I found myself craving weird, exotic guns with no sporting purpose whatsoever. I wanted more. I had to have more.
Things came to head when I realized that this was a good thing. That’s when I learned to relax, and love my sport. Liking guns and shooting guns is no stranger than liking golf and playing golf (actually, when you consider that the point of golf is to hit a ball with a crooked stick, chase after it and hit it again, shooting makes MORE sense than golf. Plus it’s a LOT louder. I digress…).
That gave me the courage to stand before you today as a card-carrying member of the NRA, IDPA and USPSA.
My name is Kevin Creighton, and I like guns.
