    Father-in-law's Ruger Mark I, five years ago. When it was passed down in the family to me on its way to my oldest son, I took it to the range with some buddies who are in to shooting, and it has been downhill from there. My son has his grandpa's gun, and I have a new one (Mark III) just like it.

    Dad's Savage .22 LR. I shot that for over 5 years before my parents bought my first Anschutz Model 64. From there an Anschutz Model 1407 and eventually on to bigger calibers.

    Rifle = My dads Ruger 10/22
    Pistol = My dads Bersa 22. It was a Walther PPK clone. I don't think they even make them anymore.

    Rifle- My uncle's 10/22 at the age of 12I still remember the first coffee can I plinked :). I also fell in love with my bolt action Marlin XT-22r within 2 hours of owning it when I bought it earlier this year, its a tack driver for sure :)
    Pistol- I caught the bug firing my best buddy's Glock 36, and dabbled with a snubby .38sp, and a S&W .357- but my favorite firearm is certainly my SR9c. Fits my hand perfect, conceals well with the 10 shot magazine, and serves nightstand duty with the 17 shot mag. I love the thing more every day

    An Ithaca single shot .410. Dad gave it to me for Christmas when I was ten. I still have it and still shoot it.

    My father's first gun was also my first gun. I remember it well... a Savage 24, .22 .410 over-under. Still get it out from time to time now. Always remember your first.

    My first was a Remington 521T bolt action .22 that my dad bought for me for Jr NRA competition in 1960. Lymen peep sights and a glass job on the stock. I am fortunate to still have that rifle today.

    My first gun given to me, for my 11th birthday, was a Marlin Model 60. I still have it.

    The first gun I shot was a different Marlin Model 60, one my Dad still has.

    Winchester Model 67 (single-shot .22) at age 6 in the late 60s. Still have that gun; taught my kids to shoot with it. I've bought and sold many others, but I've got a soft spot for that one.

    I lived in big cities most of my life so I started with a revolver ( long guns came after I moved to Texas. ) which was a Ruger SP 101 357. Still have it and use it at the gun range with my 380 - 32 - 22 as often as I can.
