    I'm assuming you mean center fire cartridge rifle.

    A 1943 Winchester Garand. It's still a favorite today.

    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.

    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.
