Default What was your first?

What was the first rifle you ever fired or which one did you learn to shoot with?
Mine was a Winchester 9422 XTR in .22lr. My Dad and I shot those dirty ol' Remington Thunderbolts at our backyard "range." We shot at tin cans and whatever trash we could scrounge up.

I figured most people started with rimfires.
I still have mine to, it has killed many squirrels and other things.
Thanks for the responses.
