A gun that was registered to YOU. My first gun was a Colt 1911. Waited two weeks for the paper work and back ground check. Traded it for a Daewoo .223 and some cash. Should of kept the Daewoo, it's worth around 2 grand today.

Marlin model 60 .22LR. I still have it. Never shoot it, but I've still got it. Maybe I'll save it for when I have kids, let them use it. I got it when I was 18, bought it from a coworker. Dad wasn't much of a sportsman, so I got into it by myself. Now I own 9 firearms, and tons of reloading equipment. :)

Winchester 12 Guage semi-auto model 1400 (I think 1400?) was the first REGSISTERED to me. Pistol was a Ruger MkII semi auto standard. First I was ever given, non-pneumatic, was a Savage 20 guage/.22 Long Rifle over-under campers special...damn what a great little hunter for rabbits or squirrels. Fun gun.

Marlin 70, I got at K-Mart. My dad had to buy it with money I saved, because I was only 12. No registration on long guns back then, so it was cash and carry.

Marlin Model 60. Looks a popular first firearm. Sold it later to move up to a Ruger 10/22T

Sig p220. Best handgun I ever owned. Until I got my HK USP 40 that is. I wish I still had that sig. I bought another just like it, but it didn't shoot nearly as well.

On my 18th birthday I drove to Kmart and purchased a Ruger 10/22 and a brick of ammo.
Link Posted: 7/3/2002 11:55:47 AM EST
My first firearm was and still is a Fullsize USP in .45. I thought I shouldn't compromise on my first weapon. If I was to do it again, I would've bought a 1911, which insidently, was the weapon I intended to purchase. It was one of those implusive buys, not that I went wrong, it's just that I, I said I not You, can shoot a 1911 sytle weapon better. I didn't know thaty at that time. I told myself I'd never sell my first firearm.

Colt SP-1. $400 out the door the day I turned 18. I wish I still had it.
Link Posted: 7/3/2002 12:02:30 PM EST
92FS Inox. Not registered to anybody in the free state of FL. Had to wait 3 days, though. [:(] But now I have a CCW, so on my next handgun purchase, I can immediently load up, stuff it in my belt, and go home. Or to the range, or grocery shopping, or whatever. Same with an AR-15, though it probably wouldn't fit in my pants. [:P] Oh yeah, I am also determined not to move to any state in which I would have to register any firearm.

I think it was a Roy Rogers six gun. But it ran a "belt" of 50 caps. No ID required! No FFL required! Didn't even have to ask my dad for permission to buy ammo. But then again, it may have been my Dick Tracy, concealable, semi-auto with a "belt" fed 50 cap roll in the handle. Ah the good ole days.

Topper Jr. Model 410 single shot. The year was 1969, I was 7 years old. [b]And no, I never even considered taking it to school and shooting all the kids I didn't like.[/b] Maybe it was the good mom I had and the lack of Mega Death records that saved me.
Link Posted: 7/3/2002 12:26:40 PM EST
The first gun registered to me was and still is a Springfield M1A.Saved during the summer,put a down payment on it the day before Christmas and bought it the day after Christmas.Funny too because I was going to wait another week or so to have a little more money than just enough for the gun.But on tv they were playing that movie A Christmas Story back to back on Christmas Day and that made me say $crew waiting!Of course I never shot my eye out!

SIG226 in .357SIG The SIG220ST is the most accurate AND reliable handgun, IMHO, out of the box. It is rivaled only by the [Kimber] 1911, but the [Kimber] 1911 is not as reliable...SIG always fires no matter what I feed it. With proper ammunition & a little tweaking the 1911 can be made to be as reliable. Still, if I were to go to combat tomorrow I would be reaching for the SIG. Now if SIG made a firearm in SA only...boy would that be a seller!

Ruger P95 was on the first 4473 I ever filled out. There have been many since, it's like an obsession now.

Savage single shot .22. I've taken more game, shot more cans, and learned more about shooting with that little rifle than just about any other I own today. Tall Shadow

Marlin Lever action 30-30... At least I belive it was a Marlin. Back then I wasnt into firearms at all.. My dad called me and said he was going hunting and if I wanted to go. drove from New Orleans to Dallas .. walked into the gunstore and said.. I want < closed my eyes and pointed > that one. In and out in about 1 hour cause I looked around the store a bit before asking for the random rifle..
Link Posted: 7/3/2002 1:15:07 PM EST
I believe it was a marlin model 60 that I bought from K-Mart for 99$ several years ago. I really only bought it for a one time deal shoot at the range, and planned on selling it afterwards becuase I didn't think it would be worth keeping. Needless to say, I kept it :) With all my assult rifles and other fun toys, it's still one of the best shooting guns I have. It came with a cheap "non-variable" Tasco scope, that's deadly accurate. I was plinking spent .357 Mag shells with it the first day at 40 yards. I have more "impressive" rifles now, but I will always remember how well that one worked. Now, my wife really likes to shoot it, and hopefully, I can hand it down to some young 'en in my family so they can enjoy it. The first rifle I ever shot was my dad's 22 LR bolt action Winchester. He got it when he was 8 and used to take it to school so he could go hunting afterwards. He and his buddies would take them to the principal's office, and leave them there during school, and get them after. Nobody even raised an eyebrow! Imagine what would happen today! I wonder how much it would cost the average student to get out of that one!!!!! In this month's American Rifleman, there's a great artical about 22's called "The Rifelman's look at 22 Rimfires" or something like that. Now, I prefer to shoot my AR-10 .308 match grade rifle [sniper], but I will always respect the accuracy, cost effectiveness, and simplicity of the 22 LR. Badd_Bradd [frag] [newbie]

my first gun was a crossman model 760 pump pellet rifle.10-11 yrs old..my first "REAL" gun was a christmas present when i was 13, a winchester codey model 840 (i think) 20 ga. breech action shotgun. weird gun laws in Mass. if you passed a hunter safety course you could get your FID when you were 13. i was 13-14 hunting without adult supervision. i used to get the police called on me all throughout high school for walking from my house to the salt marsh with my shotgun . police would stop see its me..ask for my FID and ask me to please buy a case for my shotgun so peoeple wouldnt call anymore. got my first duck, goose, pheasant and white tailed deer when i was 13-14. unsupervised.Mass has some wacky gun laws.

P.O.S AR-22 made in the Phillipeans (sp?). It had a REAL sexy telescoping stock...... The wood was SHIT and broke in splinters after only 2 years or so.... Gee it was SOooo much better than the 10/22 I decided against!!! NOT!!!

Colt Combat Commander

The first one would have been a Daisy BB gun and it came with the stern warning, "Don't shoot your eye out." The second was a J.C. Higgins semi-auto .22 rifle (I'm talking late 1940's or early 50's here). The third (a couple of years later) was a Mossberg bolt action, 16 ga. shotgun that would kick the living hell out of you.[whacko]
