    Mossberg 500 12 gauge. I shot a 12 gauge for the first time at 9 years old, on a dove hunting trip we took as an early birthday present (September), it knocked me on my ass and I loved it so much I had to have one. I got it for Christmas that same year.

    Yes indeed it was/is. Already have at least 500-600 rounds through it too. But just to take away some of the surprise, I've only been 18 since July/2011 and only had my firearms license since October.

    I bought my girlfriends right before I bought mine since I wanted to make damned sure I had it for Christmas, turned out I had enough left for mine so got them both the same day. Haha

    Mine too was a shotgun I got for christmas when I was 13. A remington single action 20ga sparton. I loved it but traded it for a 1917 carcano carbine a few years later.

    First gun I ever bought myself was a Colt Cobra .38 Special with a 2" barrel........40+ years ago. I recently traded that gun for a Ruger GP-100 Stainless .357 mag.with a 6" barrel.

    Mine was a .410 single shot from Western Auto. Wish I still had it, but the ex got off with it.

    Mine was a marlin bolt action 410(model 59). I got it when I was 9. My stepfather bought it from a pawn shop for 45 dollars. Just loaned it out to my brother in law to let my nephew use it. It will be my sons when hes old/ mature enough.

    New England Firearms single shot 22 in the youth size. I won it at a DU banquet in a greenwing drawing. Also won a pocket knife that I still have. The gun is still an amazing shooter and I have several thousand hours behind it and no tellin how many rounds.
