I always try and get along with everyone, and i think that ive done a pretty good job. I dont consider advice trolling. The only thing that ive said to you is,just ride the thread, enjoy the thread and dont be petty about the little side conversations that happens to every thead on this forum, they always get back on track. Nobody had a harsh or negative thing to say until you started jumping down peoples throats for a "few" posts that didnt pertain to the topic, its not that big of a deal,but now the thread has a negative atmosphere because of it. Everyone has different agendas but if im new somewhere i dont wanna tarnish a good first impression by instantly jumping people,especially credible senior members that have been here for a while. So chill out,pour you a drink, and lets move on.

OK- please pay attention.

To responders- you DID get off topic. For side discussions, please use private messages. Or start another thread. Hijacking- even unintentional- is impolite. You ALSO ignored another Mod that attempted to get you back on track.

To the original poster- yes, the thread did go off topic. Several folks did apologize to you. In your frustration, you were starting a flame war, and going off topic yourself.

I do NOT want to hear about who started it- but it will stop here. I am leaving the thread open, since it IS a good topic, and most folks DO have a fond recollection of their first gun. I know I do. If you want to post, great- but about the first gun.

Mine was a single shot .410, couldn't tell you the brand as its LONG gone. My dad had the stock cut down to fit me because I was still in grade school. When we went bird hunting, I toted it alongside my grandad, dad, uncles and older cousins. It's kinda funny...they wouldn't let me load it until we got back to the truck AFTER the hunt, at which time I got to light off a few shells.

Man, that seems like a long time ago....
