First gun - CO2 pellet pistol when I was 4 (one of my earliest memories)
First shotgun - .410 single shot when I was 8
First Remfire - .22lr Marlin when I was 9
First Center fire - Winchester 30-30 lever action when I was 10

I had a really good childhood

I had a single-shot .22LR and a single-shot .410 when I was in my early teens. My first centerfire rifle was a Winchester Model 94. I bought it while I was in the Army at the PX at Ft. Lewis, WA. I still have it and it shoots great.

First rimfire - Savage 93 .22 mag got it just before my 16th birthday.
First centerfire - Mosin Nagant for my seventeenth birthday. Pickin' it up next month.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

Yes I still have them taught my kids to shoot with the Rem. The seals failed on the Daisy so I bought the kids there own BB guns at 8

first rifle ever was a Colt M4 22lr, first center fire rifles was a model 94 winchester 30-30, and first shotgun was a Rem 870 express. I was 17 when I got the 22, 18 when I got the 870 (now at the bottom of a very deep lake) and I got my 30-30 a few weeks before my 19th bday.

My first was a Stevens Model 15 single shot .22 at 15 years old that I bought with my own earnings.
My first shotgun was an old Dunlap 12 ga. single shot bought from an old lady up the street for $3.00.
My first centerfire was a 7.65mm Argentine Mauser and I guess by that time I was about 16 now almost 68.
