Had a Sears single shot .22 that I shared with my brother as a kid, so it was half mine. When I grew up, it was a .38 Colt Cobra--nice!

Default H&R Model 732 .32 Revolver

Bought it at All About Sports in Cincinnati circa 1979, this was my first handgun. When I took it to TargetWorld and fired it for the first time, it felt like a cannon to me at the time.

Traded it years ago --- should've kept it. It would've made a great carry gun!

Due to the crossing of both state and national boundaries and threats of sanctions against Team Santa Claus by Hilary Clinton we regret to inform you that we will not be able to repeat the previous gift. All gifts of slingshots and bb guns are being reconsidered currently. Santa is very thankful for All donations of milk and cookies and regrets any inconvenience these changes may cause!

Default My first gun

It has been a long time, but I remember it was a .22 caliber pump with a hex shaped barrel with hammer.
Paid $45 for it NIB.
Can't remember the brand, but probably a remington.
Believe you me, $45 was a lot of work at 20 cents an hour working farm work.

Teas Williams Model 3T 22lr semi-auto.. I had just reblued the steel and painted the aluminum/alloy a few weeks ago.

There are some parts I want to replace and I want to refinish the wood again; I used old varnish that is bad.

Remington #6 rolling block .22 single shot Rifle was my very first Gun. I went rabbit hunting with it and carried LR .22 Hollowpoints and bird shot rounds. If we were lucky enough to walk up on a rabbit, I got first dibs at shooting it and if I missed, Dad shot it on the run with his Long Tom single shot 12 gauge. I am 62 now and I was 7 then!!

Default What was everyone's first gun?

BSA Air rifle, then a hand-me-down Lee-Enfield .303 British, still have the Lee-Enfield plus 5 more in different configurations. Favorite is the No 5 MkI.
