Marlin model 60 was my first gun, an SKS was my furst centerfire rifle and somewhere between the two I bought a double barrel High Standard .22 magnum derringer as my first pistol. (I was a pizza delivery driver)

single shot 20ga

Maverick 88, 12 ga pump, 30" barrel, modified choke.

This was about, 1991... Mossberg just started making them, it only had one action bar instead of two... IIRC it was like $140...

I've been through many more since then!

Although, I wish I had kept them all That would be a lot of guns! (I stopped counting at 60)

Not counting my Daisey BB gun, it would be a 20 guage single shot breakover from Sears and Roebuck. That little plastic stocked demon kicked like a mule (at least I thought it did ). Ahh, the memories.

My first gun was given to me by my grandfather. It was a Marlin Model 90 over and under 16 ga. The gun belonged to my uncle that was killed in WWII on March 18, 1945. My other uncle told me that on the morning of December 7, 1941 him and his brother checked their trap line and nearly every trap was full. With that money they got for their furs they each bought shotguns, one bought a side by side 16 and the other bought an over and under 16 ga. Now all three of those men are gone (grandfather, and both uncles) and I can't help but think of the three of them every time I see the shotgun.

The first NEW gun I got was a Marlin 39M that my dad bought me.

I still have all the guns.

Rem 870 12gage shotgun. 28" barrel, vent rib, modified choke. I slapped on a Choate 10-shot mag tube and shot a practical shotgun match at the tender age of 17. Had never pulled the trigger before . In thise days, the matches comprised mostly buckshot and slugs, with only a few bridshot stages. My shoulder was tender after that weekend, I can tell you.

This was before I even had a driver's license, so I had to take public transport (train and bus) over 100 miles to the match, with a rucksack and a gun case over my shoulder. And - wait for it - this was in ENGLAND . Apart from a few strange looks, and a copper who asked to see my shotgun license while I was waiting for a London Underground train, I had no troubles. I'm not sure I would do this now, even here in AZ... I guess I didn't know any better in those days, or enthusiasm overrode good sense.

The match was a hoot, by the way, and set me on a path that landed me here in the Land of the Free.

Winchester 94/22 was the first gun that my Dad had bought me, I spotted it at a gunshop in the black hills and said I liked it, an hour later I was shooting clay pidgeons on a pile of dirt with it. Very handy, very fun gun, makes me wonder if Ive ever cleaned it or not though...

What they both said! What can I say, just before Klinton tried to screw everything up I felt compelled to run out and get a normal handgun (hi-cap).

Mine was a Remington Nylon-66 in what they called Apache Black (black nylon stock, chromed barrel and receiver cover) that I fell in love with when I was fourteen. Busted my ass for a year and a half to earn the money for it, then had to convince my Dad (senior Air Force NCO) that I should be allowed to buy it. Shot the shit out of it, and still collect old Remington .22s. That was like 1964.

Armscor Precision M-1600R.

It was a .22LR M16 knockoff made in the Philippines. It had a metal retractable stock and a 15-round mag. I paid $50 for it in 1986.

3 years ago I finally got around to getting my CCW.

I picked up the permit from the State PD at 10am and by 12noon I had purchased a DPMS M4gery, Glock27 (nite-sites, lasermax), and a HK USP40C.

So my first gun was actually 3 guns.

PWA AR-15, with a 20" Stainless, 1/8 barrel. Bought it a few months after I turned 18, and paid for it with cash from my first job. This was just a few months after Columbine, so I felt like everyone in the store thought I was gonna go postal.

Mine was a .22LR rifle which was passed down from my dad to me. I never really felt it was "my" rifle. So I consider my BUSHMASTER 20inch HBAR "My first" rifle. I purchased it with my own money although technically my dad had to hand him the money since I wasnt old enough.
