Ruger Single six 22/22mag started shooting it at 5. Dad let me take it out to the hills since the age of 10 and eventually gave it to me. Still have it and shoot it about every other time I go to the range. Most accurate revolver (with mag loads) I own. I'll have to post what it prints at 25 yards.
"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off!" - Dirty Harry
My first real gun was a Single-shot .410, My dad gave it to me when I was 12. Im not really sure what kind it is becuz its 40 or so years old and is worn down. Of the small arsenal I have built up over the past 2 years, Its one of only 2 that is TOO IMPORTANT to me to keep outside of our Gun cabinet.
Wow. Last response to this thread had been fourteen months ago!
Since I do believe in the resurrection of the dead, I guess that I'll chime in too. First was an Eastern Arms (which I'm told was sold by Sears & Roebuck) 20 ga. single shot shotty that I bought from an uncle in about 1958/1959. Still have it:

No pics right now but i still have my first gun, It was a Winchester 1200 12g 28" BBL. My grandpa bought it for my father when he was 16 and he gave it to me when i was 16... Probably killed more SD Pheasants then any gun ON EARTH!

I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
My first gun was a remington 870 wingmaster with non ribbed barrelI was 8 . It was a 12 gauge it would kick the fire out of me . It got recalled in the early 90's can't remember something about bad barrels.
