The first gun I ever Shot?
Honestly, I got a Daisy Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas when I was 6. Became a big game hunter in the back yard, down the alley and my uncles farm. Black Birds, Starlings and the like. Then at 7 or 8 My Grand Daddy let me shoot an H&R Single Barrel 20 Ga. Shotgun at a Corn Cob on a fence post. From there, my addiction began!!!! I recall how the shotgun had considerable recoil (Kick) as they referred to it! But a year later didn't even feel the recoil when shooting my first rabbit!!
Grand Dad always told me: Show me a boy (girl) that is in to shooting, hunting and fishing and I will show you someone that is less likely to get into trouble in their life!
