Other than my BB Gun, it was a Birthday Present, 12 Years Old, a gently used Ithaca 22 single shot lever action a friend of my dads gave me. That plinker and I have have been together a very long time and its still in good shape even though its no longer what you would call gently used, its had thousands of shots fired through it since it became my #1 Gun. Ive only really purchased one gun in my life and that was an Ithaca Featherlight from my then Brother in Law, all of the rest Ive inherited through the years.
The poll is interesting, almost half of us got our first gun given to us as a gift of some sort, thats a pretty memorable and awesome gift and sadly one of the first things our Gov has tried to stop us from doing. They have turned a very honorable and wonderful tradition into the first time a kid gets labeled and marked by their gov as a dangerous gun owner! Isnt that special!
