I vividly remember my first gun purchase. I was 14 or 15 (At the time you could legally ride a motorcycle at 14) and had stopped at the local bootlegger's place to buy a six pack of beer and there was a broke drunk who sold me a double barreled Derringer for ten dollars. As I remember, it was a very inconsistent shooter and I believe the drunk got the better part of the deal.

For my first gun purchase. It was at a small gun shop run out of the guy's garage at the time. I think I was around 42 at the time, and what I got was a Makarov 9x18 and also bought 3 or 4 boxes of ammo that same day. The year was 1994. Maybe a year later I bought my first rifle, or should say I traded for it. It was an Norinco SKS.
