I'm sure this question has been posted before, but what was your first firearm (BB-guns do not count)? Mine was a Stevens' Model 77 pump-action shotgun that my dad bought me when I passed the hunters' exam back in Sweden.

The first I ever bought myself was a Mosin M44. The first I fired was an old Swiss Rubin in .308 when I was 12. I recently just bought that rifle from my dad. I will never part with it. Sgtar15

Stevens 311A 20 Ga. S/S double barrel. starting off with a double barrel hleped alot. I knew i only had two shots, so i made those two count. I used that gun my whole life, still do. We had a trap team in high school. People got so pissed when they were using 3 inch 12 Ga. loads, and i was kicking their butt with a 2 3/4 20 Ga.

Stevens single shot. 15b I think. Got it for my 6th birthday. Turned loose with it on my 8th birthday to roam the woods. Those were the days. A new box of 22 shells (50) every weekend(thanks Dad), and a national forest out the back door to explore. Learned alot those first couple years. Still brings a tear to my eye when I think back and remember the freedom I felt. Its a freedom I fear I will never have again.

Remington 16ga Sportsman semi auto at age 11. Sweet thing and hard shooting. Wish I still had it but I gave it to my son when he turned 10. He still has it and says he will give it to his son, if he ever has one. So far just two girls but I will bet they will fight over it, boys or no boys.
