Default Sears bolt action 22 single shot

The very first rifle I shot and learned fundamentals with was a Sears single shot bolt action 22 rifle that was one of my Dads rifles. He still has the rifle and it has been over 40 years since i've shot that little rifle? Guess I need to see if Pops will loan her out again for some plinking

A Marlin Model 60. Eventually, I'll get one just for that reason.

They are selling for nearly twice what they cost brand new now, I will never sell it!
My first gun as well. I was born in 56. At 18, I purchased my 49 for $18 at a Holiday Gas Station.

These are going for $250 at gun shows these days.

Mine was a .22 bolt action. Ashamedly I forget the brand. But I still have it. I was around six or so.

Shortly thereafter it was a Ruger 10-22, which I also still have.

First centerfire was my issued M16 in Boot Camp, I believe. I don't recall shooting centerfire before that.

Back in about 1958 when I was 6, My dad taught me how to shoot along with my brothers. It was a Mossberg Mod.46M(a), .22 bolt rifle. I still have that rifle today (in the photo) and love to take it out once in a while to take me back to simpler times. It will still put everything inside of a dime at 25 yards.

The very first rifle I ever shot was .270 that belonged to a neighbor. I was probably ten or eleven & I forgot to hold it against my shoulder & when it fire it landed on the ground behind me. My first firearm that was mine alone was a Heig-Eiber .410 shotgun made in Spain.
