    On my 21st birthday I dropped into a pawn shop a bought a brand new Interarms Walter PPK/S. The background check declined me the first time, because the agent at the other end of the line couldn't do simple math. So the shop owner called them back and said, "Ummm, guys, today is her 21st birthday." They finally cleared that up.

    I don't have it anymore. In fact, the whole gun didn't last that long; the ejector cracked and locked up the whole slide when I was practicing while waiting for my permit to come in. After it was repaired, I sold it.

    My first firearm was a Ruger LCP. Regretfully, I no longer have it.

    Ruger .44 magnum Super Blackhawk. Bought it in 1984 for $200. Fun to shoot. Too bad I lost it in a tragic boating accident.

    Being a bit thick, I had a brain-jangle and envisioned this when I read your post.

    Mine was a S&W .38 6 shot snub nose. It was stolen in a burglary of my home and I then got it back about 10 years later with the serial numbers filed off. I wanted to get it re-stamped by S&W but they said I needed a letter from the police department. The police department told me I did not need a letter, so it never got re-stamped. So, I can't very well sell it, and I don't dare carry it, so it sets loaded in a gun safe.

    My first gun was a Mossberg 500 Shotgun, I still have it but I hardly shoot it. I bought it because I went shooting with a friend a couple times and he convinced me a mossberg would make a good 1st gun.

    An IMI Uzi 16" 9mm w/ folding stock. picked it up about a year before the Clinton ban. Managed to sell it just after the ban but before they started making them here.

    Pretty good profit on it, but I really miss it. :(

    It seems boating misfortunes have claimed several quality firearms. I think my next hobby will be diving.
