    First Gun Love

    Ok ya'll I was thinking about this today and I wondered if anyone else had the same thoughts. My first gun was a CZ 75 compact in 9mm that I bought about five years ago. Since, I have owned and traded many guns, but currently have a full size Para SSP, Kahr CW9, Bersa Thunder, and the CZ. All of my guns were purchased for a specific use, Para for home defense(okay, it was because I think 1911s are cool) Kahr for summer carry, Bersa for my wife uh... now ex wife. I have owned plenty others XD, Glock, etc. but I always feel most comfortable with the CZ. It is the most accurate 9 I have ever shot and it just feels right in my hands! Does anyone else still own their first handgun and if so is it still you favorite?

    I inherited some guns that I still have. The first serious gun that I bought in 1958 I still have. It was Hi Standard model 102 .22 cal target pistol with adjustable weights on the barrel. I still have it but don't shoot it much. It is very accurate. Hi Standard built the only American pistol to ever win an Olympic event as far as I know. It does not like some ammo and won't cycle it. Federal standard velocity 22s seem to work most of the time.

    I too have loved too many guns to really state a first love!

    I guess back in my earlier UK shooting days, before the crapolla hit the whirly thing - my real fave was my M27 Smith revo. Thank heaven I managed to find another a few years ago. I should add too maybe a Mauser Obendorfe .22 rifle - a heavy but dead-on accurate rifle - and perhaps the one rifle I hope to never relinquish.

    In truth tho my first ''love'' was actually an air rifle when I was still a teen. A Webley Mk III tap loading under-lever in .22. Many a squirrel and rabbit might be looking down right now ruing the day they got into the sight line of that one

    These days I am polygamous - love every darned one.

    I still own the first firearm I ever purchased...a six-inch Royal Blue Colt Python. Is it still my favorite firearm? In some ways, yes. But I value others more today for their utility. It (the Python) is still, however, my sentimental favorite.

    My first love was a long gun a 20 guage Mossberg 500. My dad bought it for me when I was about 12. He even had a gunsmith cut the stock down to fit my shoulder. I never would have sold it but it got stolen.

    My first centerfire handgun was a Ruger p-944 that I never really fell in love with but can't get my self to sell it because it was my introduction into the handgun world and the first gun I carried under Missouri's ccw law so it has some sentimental value. My 642 is a true love. It's my always gun.

    My first love was a Martial Colt Single Action Army my father had, that's now mine. Shipped to the US Government inspector on 24 December, 1884.

    I have an old Star Model S 380. It was my first pistol and is still my most accurate shooter, I think because it's the only single action I own right now. It has a really light trigger. I'm almost embarrassed to admit to the fact I still use it to range qualify when I renew my CHL. I always shoot a perfect score with it.

    I guess I should graduate to a 1911.

    I'd have to say No. My first gun was a Hi-Point C9. While I never had any problems with it, I definitely didn't love it. My 2nd gun is one that I still really like and I wish that I hadn't sold it. It was a XD9 4". Even now, everything gets compared to it. Need to pick up another one sometime.

    I have had many tools. But the first pistol that I really could hit the broad side of the barn is my Colt Gold cup. After the first time I had it at the range I was in love.

    When it comes to guns, I can't help but be polygamous.

    My first love, was the first handgun I ever shot. My dad had a 1911 and I myst have burned up at lease 100 rounds during my first time at the range.

    Even though I have many different guns as well, my Wilson Combat 1911's are my favorites.

    My dad had plenty of guns when I was growing up but my first love was a HR Single Six .22 I got for my 14th birthday. It's now hanging in the doc holiday rig in my fathers display case in his living room. He and I have a community gun thing.
