My first firearm was a single shot Jennings 22 rifle that belonged to my great grandfather. My great grandmother bought it as a Christmas present for him some time in the mid to late 40's. The first gun I ever bought myself was a Remington 700 30-06.

First rifle was a Marlin 60, I was 17 and bought it for around $40 from one of the customers. First shotgun was a Mossberg 500, bought that at 18 from a co-worker. First handgun was a Beretta .380ACP I bought from a buddy. I was probably 23 or so?

I still have all 3 of them, and I still own all of the guns I have ever purchased.

First gun I ever bought was a Ruger GP 100, stainless steel, 6" barrel. My son drove me to pick it up. I was so excited I wanted to ride home with it on my lap.........but I couldn't. My new baby had to ride home like a second class citizen in the trunk of the car.
