My Dad was a bird huntin' nut
So I can't hardly remember when I first started shooting?? 4-5 years old or younger?
The first shotgun was a 410 single shot,I wish I could remember the manufacturer? It had a plastic stock?... I graduated from the 410 when I was 8 or 9 years old to a Rem 1100 20ga.

I shot Dads 22 rifles until I was about 10 years old,when I bought my first 22 rifle a Savage Westpoint that I purchased at a True Value Hardware store. First deer rifle I bought when I was 11 years old was a Remington 742 woodmaster chambered in 30-06 from walmart 199.99
I delivered a lot of newspapers for those two rifles

And my first revolver 22 H&R sportsmen 999,a Christmas gift from my parents when I was 12 years old.

It was a bolt action, single shot .22 rifle, and I do not remember who the manufacturer was. My uncle got it as a kid in about 1925, he gave it to my cousin. When my cousin went into the Army in 1964 he gave it to me. I gave it back to him in about 1975, and he still has it.

Good accurate rifle. Killed a lot of squirrels and rabbits with it.
