    First

    My first handgun was a Berretta 92f 9mm handgun which I used when I started working armed security in San Francisco, CA. I bought this pistol in 1993. I still have this handgun and will never part from it as it holds memory of my first handgun.

    Mine was a Ruger Single Six in 22 LR. Killed a lot of squirrels with that gun. Wish I still had it.

    CZ40P. It was 3-4 years ago, when I first joined the DC board, I found it on here, PM'D the guy, who happened to be at his computer and called me right away. Within 20 minutes I was heading to an ATM, then drove about 1 1/2 to meet him in a parking lot and check it out. I got it secondhand from F2F because I was under 21, was legal to own/buy, just not from a licensed FFL dealer, and I fell in love with it when I checked it out, and it just so happens I had enough cash in my bank account when I came accross the ad. I regret selling it.

    Smith & Wesson Model 10 Heavy Barrel, purchased used, for $75 in December of 1975, as a Christmas present to myself. Was originally shipped from Smith & Wesson in June of 1971. It still sees heavy shooting use.

    1985 I was 18 and bought a 7 1/2" stainless Redhawk. I blame it on a couple of Bob Milek articles.

    My first purchase was last year. Taurus Judge. I wanted a wheel gun as I knew it would always go bang. I bought into the novelty of the Judge. I am still happy with it and it is my nightstand gun.

    I guess it depends on whether we are talking about guns I bought, or guns my grandpa gave me. I have a little .22lr that he gave me for my fifth birthday; it's a mess right now, but I will get it fixed up some day.

    First gun I personally ever bought was a Remington 870 HD in about 2004.

    First pistol was a Springfield XD40c bought in 2006.

    My first firearm purchase was a Taurus 617 revolver. It was a straight up carry gun and served it's purpose well. I got the stainless variety and liked the fact that it held 7 rounds of .357 mag. I ended up shooting .38's out it more often than not and sold it to pick up a Mil Spec Springfield 1911.

    Kimber Ultra Compact, but a divorce forced me to sell it.

    It looked similar to this.

    Mine was a blued Colt Python with a six-inch barrel, in 1980. It's in the safe right now.

    Cool

    A .32 German Mauser semi auto and a Colt .45 Model 1917 revolver given to me by my father when I turned 18 in 1964. Traded the Mauser and some cash for a .45 Government Model in the late 60's and the .45 Model 1917 and some cash for a S&W model 19 in the early 70's.
