if we shot a 3 shot group with accuracy of < 4 MOA (1 inch at 25 yards) we earned a nifty little badge.... the guns had good peep sights though, i don't think i could have done it with open sights

Not sure I remember.

I'm guessing it was likely a .22.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 10:11:19 PM EDT
I'm not sure of of the guage, but it was some kind of shotgun. Unfortunately my instructor didn't properly school me on holding the gun, and instead of holding the buttstock against my shoulder, I held it against my bicep.

The bruise was very large and colorful.

The .222 out of my Savage 24v.. I dont remember how old i was, I vaguely remember shooting it. I am guessing 5 or 6. It was before second grade, because the summer between 2nd and 3rd I started shooting in the sub-junior class for smallbore.

Haha... Walther p38 was the first handgun that i ever shot too, Grandpa brought it home from he war. I lve its history but it is the most inaccurate son of a bitch i have ever shot, obviously its just this paticular gun because a friend owns one too and it is plenty accurate. But that fact that it was so worn is almost scary

Some sort of bolt-action .22, and the first handgun was a single-action revolver of the same caliber. I was pretty young at the time, I remember being pretty scared of the recoil before shooting it. But alas, I was hooked after I tried it. The supportive comments of my instructors were very reinforcing. Those were the days.....

Mine had less than 100 rounds through it before I became the owner, last year. It is in excellent condition and shoots like a champ. Just gotta watch out for that brass.

Yep. Dad got it about 1940. He and Grandpa taught me safety, marksmanship, etc. I was successful the first shot when I took it hunting (rabbit). Very good memories. Still have it, still works great.

My first shot was with my Dads M42 Winchester .410 when I was 10-11 years old. I thought it kicked bad, but I quickly got past that perception. My first shot with a handgun was with a cheap impoet revolver my Dad kept in his semi truck when he was on the road. It used to be you could by this particular model mail order from ads in the back of magazines like Outdoor Life for $12.95

I don't have either of these guns of my Dad, but I do have an example of each. I use the M42 quite a bit, but I've never fired the cheap import . Not a gun I'd buy, but I don't care to dispose of it either.

Long gun: Mossberg .410

Pistol: .44 mag. I was around 22 years old. Three of us we were shooting off of the back deck of my buddy's house in MI. He had a 1 gallon milk jug hanging from a tree branch, about 70' out. I was 3rd to shoot. Having never shot a hand gun before, let alone a
.44 mag, I prepard them for a lack luster performance.

First shot spun the jug. Heyyy, not bad huh, I say? Beginners luck they said. Second shot cut the string the jug was suspended on. Needless to say I handed the .44 back with pride. Knowing full well my beginners luck was all used up.

22 single shot ba, my Grandad knelt down, and I used his shoulder as a rest, I was probably 4or 5, that's all I ever wanted to do after that, was go shooting. He was retired, and lived about 2 miles from our house, he would take me every chance he had, and if we couldn't go, we would sit in the backyard, and shoot a daisy red rider at grocery sacks as targets. AHH the good ole days. My Grandad was a great man, and the best shot I have ever seen, he was raised in a time, where if you missed, you didn't eat, He never had a large bore rifle, only 22s and shotguns, I would love for him to see my collection, and be able to take him shooting, an AR would blow his mind ...............boy do I miss him.
