Remington 513T - a heavy barrel nail driver. I sold it during college in the 1960's for $50 including Redfield adjustable peep sight. Wish I could get it back.

first was a Crosman 760 pumpmaster, first cartridge arm was a Daisy 2202 bolt action in .22LR.

First gun i ever bought with my own money was a 1943ish FB Radom VIS 35, and yes, i still have & shoot all of them.

pretty sure my old crosman has more pep to it than the newer 760's do, the girlfriend's nephew has one & doesn't seem to have the speed my old one does

My first gun was an old Iver Johnson 12 ga. single-shot shotgun, full choke. Wish I still had it.

Had a Crossman BB gun growing up, then when I was older I got a .50cal Flintlock, then a .40cal XD. Now time to grow the gun collection. Anyone have a Walther P22 they want to sell for a reasonable price

Savage Model 24, .22LR upper barrel, .410 shotgun lower barrel. Was about 9 years old, 56 years ago. Wish I still had it, for nostalgia's sake.

My first gun was a Marlin mod. 81 bolt-action .22LR I bought from a friend's neighbor for $25. I was fifteen years old.

I wish I still had it but it was stolen from my car when I was 20. I'd been shooting on a friend's farm and stopped for pizza on my way home. When I came out of the pizzeria the car had been broken into and the gun stolen.
