    Smith & Wesson M1000 20 gauge autoloader with a 26" skeet-choked barrel. Perfect gun for bird hunting the New England fields and forests. With a good dog, that gun put a lot of fine dinners on the table!

    Raven .25 Auto......$40 cash if memory serves me correctly.

    That was about 32 years ago.......still have it, never shoot it. Terrible gun....cheap and unreliable in a weak calibre.

    As soon as I could scrape together the cash I purchased a S&W Mod 36 Chief's Special. Still got it too.

    1955 Stevens/Savage Model 311 SxS .410 in 1955 and is now retired to my safe. This gun was not fired between late 1955 and 2008. It was fired at a family reunion in 2008 along with many of my fathers guns that he left to family members. I had not seen many of the guns since I left for the service in 1953. The guns brought back many fond memories of my childhood. Yes, I am an old f-rt.

    First gun I bought as soon as I was old enough to buy one, was a Ruger 10/22. I loved it and still have it today. The 2nd gun I bought, again as soon as I was old enough to buy it, was a Ruger Redhawk .44 mag. I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it, but it was a gas to shoot!

    First gun you purchased

    First gun was given to me by dad, a Winchester model 250 lever action. Still have it but rarely shoot it because the front sight is cracked. The first one I bought by myself was a 10/22, had a green laminated stock. Sound ugly but it wasn't,t at all. Several years later a friend talked me into selling it. I wish I had more smarts back then! I miss it.

    First gun you purchased

    My first was a "US Rifle, Caliber 30, M1 gas operated semiautomatic shoulder weapon," as the Manual described it - Serial # 875177, Bayonet # 521. Unfortunately, I no longer have it.

    My first defensive caliber weapon that I purchased was a Ruger Police Service Six .357 Magnum revolver. 4" barrel, blued, with original wooden grips. I still have it, and it is still in like new condition.

    Well Im going to go all the way back to my childhood when I saved my chore money and bought the daisy bb gun. The joker cost 20 bucks at the time and the red ryder was more expensive so went with the entry level model. Loved that thing so much that I bought my son the same model when he was old enough
