A comment in another thread got me thinking. Someone commented about wishing they still had what sounded like their first gun.  

Do you still own your first gun?  If so, what is it and how long have you had it?

I'll start. I do still have my first gun. It is a Remington 870 20 gauge youth model. I was probably 10 or so when I got it and so I've had it for about 22 years or so. I plan to pass it down to my son.

No. Lost it in a fire. Old marlin 22 that my grandpa gave me.

Yes. A Ruger 10-22 that I got in 1981.

Still got it.

Going to give to my son when he is old enough.

Nope was destroyed after being used in a suicide

I own the first gun I bought with my money but not the first one giving to me.

First one I bought is a Rem 522 Viper that I have had for 15 years but, it needs a lot of work done to it to function reliably.

First gun I ever had was a Marlin bolt gun in 22 mag but I don't remember the model.

Yes, GP100 I bought when I was 32.

That was my first as well, my brother eventually broke it and I just never fixed it.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 11:53:14 PM EDT

Marlin 336 30-30
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 11:53:20 PM EDT
Yep, Marlin 881 bolt action.  Shitty trigger, but stupid accurate.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 11:54:12 PM EDT
Yes, my Dad gave me a Winchester Model 60, IIRC, .22 when I turned 15. He was 15 when he got it.  It'll be my sons when he's actually matures and is responsible enough.  

I've never sold or traded a gun.  I have some that never get shot, but I just can't bring myself to sell them.

My Dad got me a Savage Model 5 (bolt action, tubular magazine .22) when I was 10 years old.

When I was 18, I acquired a Ruger Single Six .22.

When I was away at college, my mother gave them away just to spite me and my Dad.

Yeah, she was a real peach.

ETA: When I finished college and started getting paychecks, I bought a new Single Six. When gunbroker.com came into being, I found two Savage Model 5's and bought both of them.

Just to spite my mom.

Yep. Ruger 10/22.

Yes, a Stevens single shot, breakdown, 410 shogun that my Great Grandfather gave my Dad when he was a kid and my Dad gave it to me when I was 6.

Killed a lot of squirrels with it in my early days.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:03:28 AM EDT
Dad bought me this when I was young lad and I do still have it.

Remington model 572 Fieldmaster

After that I acquired a cheap, beat up Marlin bolt 22 and used that for most of my gopher killing needs...always thought this one was "too nice to use."
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:04:12 AM EDT
I still have the first gun I bought for myself, a gen 1 Glock 19.  A friend in college got me into shooting and I decided I liked that model enough to be my first purchase.

It's not the first gun I ever shot though.  My dad took me out as a kid and taught me to fire a .22 rifle he'd had since he was a kid.  I have both of those, still.  I don't fire them though; he didn't keep them up and I got them after he died.  They're more sentimental items than firearms for me now.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:04:59 AM EDT
Yeah, my dad's Steven's Crackshot Junior .22 and his Winchester M36 12g. I still have them.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:05:57 AM EDT
Yes I do. Marlin 60.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:06:01 AM EDT
yes, an ithaca lever action single shot .22lr that my dad gave me...
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:06:43 AM EDT
I do also have the first gun I bought when I turned of legal age. Remington 870 12 gauge.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:06:44 AM EDT
Still have mine. Actually it's at my parent's house its a crack-barrel H&R .410.  Dad bought it for my sixth Christmas.  Has a broken firing pin though.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:06:48 AM EDT

I still own all guns I have bought. Came close to selling some of them, but figured out a way not to!

I am not in the business of selling!

All I own work and have a purpose!

Yes!   I was five years old when my dad gave me his Hamilton and Son model 27 22cal rifle that his Dad gave him when he was five years old.  Im 63 years old now, so I have had it a long long time.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:08:29 AM EDT
Yes, a Mossburg .22 single shot bolt action.

Parents got it for me in the 60's with trading stamps.  I put a little Weaver scope on it then, and it's still working fine.  The rifle is still a little long and has too much stock, but I still use it for squirrel control.

Yes, it's a Remington 510X that my dad bought when I was 8 or 9 in about 1972. Camp Hahn, the Boy Scout summer camp at the Lake of the Ozarks, got new 22 rifles and auctioned off their old ones.  Dad bought about 10 of them for 5 or 10 dollars a piece.  We cleaned them up and fixed anything that was wrong with them.  He kept one with just incredibly beautiful wood, let me pick another to keep for myself and sold the rest. I still have both of them.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:12:50 AM EDT
Yes it's a Rossi Model 62 SAC .22 pump.  
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 12:13:02 AM EDT
Yes, Marlin Golden 39A.

First I bought myself? No, sadly. Rem 788 in .243 that I paid for myself and filled out the 4473 myself when I was 12. Mom just had to sign the thing.

Sold it when I was 32. Wish I hadn't. Crazy accurate little rifle.

Remington 410 pump (Have no idea what model it was)

Next bad move was selling my Browning Sweet Sixteen youth model, my second gun.

We are all young and foolish at some point.

Yes. A Mod 67 Winchester .22 LR single shot. My Grandmother bought it for my Dad when he was 13, in 1936, he's 92 and the rifle has been mine since I was a kid. Most accurate .22 I own.
