That was over 30 years and 52 guns ago, but I still have the Bulldog, and it still shoots straight. It's good as a coat-pocket piece in cold weather.
Actually, my first "pistole" was a water pistol, a "squirt gun", when I was about 3 years old. I never was lucky enough to own a super-soaker, though.

My first was a beretta 92. Tis is still one of my favorite pistols to shoot. I find I am more accurate with this gun than any other gun I've ever owned.

Smith & Wesson Model 29. Bought it in 1978. My sentimental favorite wheelgun. However, apologies to Harry Calahan, it is NOT an EDC gun. First auto was a Springfield Armory 1911, purchased in the 80's. Sold it when I got a Colt Series 70 Mk.IV.

My first pistol was a Hi Standard HD Military. I wish I had never gotten rid of it, but college expense overulled keeping it. First center fire - Ruger Security Six .357 magnum. Smarter, I held on to it.

My first was two six shooter cap guns. The first real pistol I ever fired was a high standard hd military. First one I ever bought was a Jennings 9mm. My most prized today a p250 sig that my son traded his sauga shot gun for to give me for Christmas. And next most prized in high standard hd military.

That was my second handgun, still have mine too and it's the most accurate handgun I own.

This is the first pistol I ever shot, my dad still has it, the first I ever bought myself was a Ruger Mark II, wish I still had it, needed money and it was the most expendable. First centerfire Ruger GP 100 357 6" stainless.

Heritage rough rider .22. Not such a great gun, but it was accurate and cool. I was 15. I've only owned that one, a Rossi .357 snubbie, a Smith 65-2, and my current, a SA milspec 1911.
