    I can't remember if it was a .22 or a .410 if memory serves me right it was a single shot .410 I learned to shoot with (not counting bb guns) then a Henry Lever Action .22 was my own first real gun. I wont' tell you how old I was as I doubt I was walking yet

    I started with a .410 Iver Johnson shotgun that looked like a lever action, but it was a single shot and the lever broke the action open. Started shooting rabbits and squirrels when I was 6-7. My first rifle was a .22 bolt action and I cannot for the life of me remember what kind it was or what happened to it. My brother has the .410 and he is a big lib, but not anti gun. I know he has not shot a gun in decades so I hope that one day he gives the .410 to me.
    My next shotgun was an Iver Johnson 12G single shot with a full choke and 30" barrel. I still have that one and use it for turkey every great once in a while. I will say that gun made me the duck hunter I am today. When you learn to hunt em with that tight of a gun and a single shot at that, you learn to make every shot count.

    About 9 years old and it was a Remington 1100 12 gauge, a Marlin .22 and a Ruger .22 pistol. We were on an old abandon Japanese air strip on Guam. I loved my Dad. Thanks for the memories.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Leaned to shoot in high school

    I was in the 10th grade in 1963. One of our required courses at the time was ROTC. My high school had a rifle range in the basement of the building. Once a week we would spend an hour shooting a single shot 22 short bolt action rifle of some unknown make. It was great fun. I have been shooting ever since.
