    Double barrel 12 gauge, (or 12 bore as we called 'em in the UK) when I was 12 years old. Went clay pigeon shooting with my dad and had a try. Really didn't find the recoils to be that bad, but that's because they made sure my stance was right and pretty sure it was probably light loads.

    Missed the first clay. Hit the second.

    My Uncle (mom's brother) had a Remmington .22 auto. He took me out shooting my first time with it when I was about 7 years old (1967 would have been the year). I loved to go ballistic on pop cans and empty the tube magazine in just a few seconds. My dad would have taken me shooting, but he didn't have a firearm of his own at that point. He used his dad's guns to shoot and hunt with.

    My parents did however buy me a Sears bolt action .22 for Christmas in '68 or '69. I still have it and have recently replaced the tube magazine. Marlin made the gun for Sears so I think it's basically a Model 25.

    If memory serves me, it was a J.C. Higgins, bolt action single shot .22 rifle. Of course that was back in the 50's, so my memory might be a little hazy.

    It was a six shooter cap gun that I got for my 10th birthday. At that time you did not need a permit to carry this open or concealed. That was a time when the 2nd amendment was never in dispute by the "do gooders". Ahhhhhhh, the good old days!!!!!!!!!!!

    My dads old S&W 32-20 revolver he carried as a police officer in the late 60's early 70's. It used to tick him off when we went to shoot because my mom could shoot it more accurately than he could.

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
