First pellet gun: crossman co2 pistol when I was about 13
First rimfire pistol: Walther p22 given to me by my dad when I was 18
First centerfire rifle: ak47 I bought when I turned 20
Technically the single shot lever action .22 passed down from my grandpa to my dad and then ultimately to me was my first gun but my dad is actually still holding on to it along with an old Ithaca .22 repeater. Eventually I'll be putting it in my safe.
Rossi 20Ga single shot for my 12th birthday
Ruger 10/22 for my 13th Christmas
And a Winchester model 70 in 7mm rem mag for my 15th birthday. Still have all three and not planning on parting with them anytime soon!
My dad gave me a Winchester 62A for practice/fun and a Steyr 6.5 x 54MS for hunting when I was 14.....40 years ago.
My kids along with a lot of other youngsters learned to shoot with that ole Winchester.And when a bunch of us get together it still is the one that most sort of gravitate twds.Don't shoot the 6.5 nearly enough anymore?Shopnut
