Very first was a Daisy ducks Unlimited pump 177 pellet/bb gun. Probably 6-7 years old.

A Marlin model 60 was my first conventional firearm.
Then a JC Higgins 30-06 was my first centerfire.

It was a bolt action Remington .22. I can't remember the model. My brother ended up with it when I went into the service.

The first rifle hasn't happened for me yet. I've shot some but never owned one.

My first rifle was a Sears .22 bolt action with a tube magazine. It was in 1960 and I was twelve years old. I had mowed lawns for an entire summer to buy it. In those days you would buy .22 shorts because they were the cheapest and oh yeah candy bars cost a nickel too. Sometimes I would splurge and buy some longs and on rare occations buy a box of long rifles. All the bullets were lead round nosed and were so greasy that they picked up lint in your pocket. I guess I've been shooting for a half century...hmmm CD

My first rifle that I bought was a 30/30 savage bolt gun with the 3 round mag. Took plenty of deer with it.

Default First Firearm

First firearm was a Stevens semi-auto .22lr. Still got it too. It has taken more game than any rifle I have including deer.

Started out at around 4-5 yoa with a Daisy I believe it was a Red Rider Model? BB Gun. My Grandpa advised when I learned to handle it safely then I would get the 22 Single Shot which around 6or 7 I received the 22. Then graduated to the Fox Double Barrel 20 ga he gave me to use which I still have today. Later It was a Savage Model 340 223 Remington and then a Marlin Model 336 in 30-30. And on and on and on. The addiction began in full force from then on !!!!

seedy, i remember those prices myself and yes they were waxie as can be, come to think of it i just happen to know where there is a couplle of boxes of those shorts right now, just might have to take some out the nex time i go. I kno i probably shouldnt, collectors items some say but they were made to be shot and at our age why not the next person that gets them wont appreciate the value they hold in memories.
