Phoenix Arms HP22. Bought it a few weeks after I turned 18. I had some cash from my job at the gas station and got everthing in the picture(holster, two mags, mag holster, gun, and 100 rounds) for $90. I hardly ever use it, it works fine, but won't ever sell it because it was my first

Walther P22 if you mean paid for by myself... my mom had to buy it for me because I was too young at the time.

The first one I bought on my own was a GLOCK 22, but I bought that private party.

I still haven't bought one from a dealer on my own though... but that will change soon (GLOCK 27 coming soon).

The week after I turned 18 I got a Ruger 10/22. Black synthetic stock and stainless steel barrel, This was back in the early 90's. I even got a 25 round magazine from wal-mart for it.

Ended up selling the barrel, getting a VQ carbon one, VQ trigger/extractor, bolt buffer, chamfered the bolt, new stock, scope. It'll shoot quarters at 50 yards with walmart ammo.

Piece of shit Davis P380
I still have it, but I will not shoot it again.

I sort of don't count it.
If not counting the Davis, my first handgun was a Ruger P89 9mm.
I still have it, I still shoot it, and after thousands of rounds it still has never failed me and is going strong.

A Llama .357 with a 6" barrell. I had to buy it when I went to work for Purolator Armored Trucks. Some shithead neighbor stole it from my apartment about two years later. I couldn't prove it, but it sure as heck was him.

My first handgun was a Sig Sauer P220.
Link Posted: 3/20/2006 6:36:29 PM EST
About 2 months after my 21st. A TLE/RL.... loved it until I began to understand what a POS it was. 1911... never again, until I can spend $2000.

When most people turn 21 they get all excited about being able to go to bars or buy beer. For me I was excited to be able to buy a handgun and get a carry permit.

I wanted a 1911 but I couldn’t afford a Colt back then and besides I would have to pay extra to have a gunsmith tune it up. This was before the days of the .40, besides I wasn’t professional enough. So that left a 9mm as the only real choice. The Berettas were too expensive and besides I wanted a frame mounted safety.

So I bought a Taurus PT-99AF. Best $350 (or so) I ever spent… Well not counting that mint Enfield, or my GP-100, or that SA 1911 I bought a month or so back for $350, or that $350 I spent in that one strip club….

Anyway, it’s been a real good pistol, I’ve still got it eighteen years later. And even though I’ve carried it quite a bit the finish (blued) still looks nearly new.

Similer story, except my private party centerfire was a Sig P228 (Actually just got it yesterday).

A Browning hi-power practical. I haven't been 21 for long and to be honest I feel kind of bad about spending so much on a handgun.

Stainless Ruger Single Six, .22lr/.22mag.
Times got tough and I sold it about 10 years ago.
I've thought many times of replacing it, but there always seems to be somehting else on the top of my "must have" list.

Beretta 92FS. Bought it from my squad leader. I lived in the barracks ath the time. Kept it in the barracks for a while, then some NCIS guys almost found it when they were searching through my room because my idiot roommate started a fire. Sold it about a week later.
