    Benelli M1 Super 90 - bought when I was 18. So, 7 years I've had that. All my guns so far I've bought new or lightly used, so I think it is also probably the oldest gun I own.

    Got this 1871 Beaumont-Vitali in my youth:

    The gun I've owned the longest is a Remington 788 in 22-250 that I had since I was about 15 or so, which makes it 30 years now. The oldest gun I own is an 1868 3rd Allin conversion 50-70 Springfield Trapdoor.

    Actually oldest may be a mil surp 91/30 Mosin for historic age but leaving that aside my oldest regularly used and non mil is a Mauser Obendorfe .22LR rifle - a heavy rifle with excellent feel - in fact with a chamber dia of 1" or so - I am sure it could well stand pressures from .223 or better if re chambered! It dates back to 1920's and have owned it for around 24 years.

    14 years. I bought a Marlin .22lr at a local sporting goods store when I moved out of my parents place at 18 (grew up in a no-gun house).

    My father gave me my first rifle a 1898 springfield 30-40 krag when I was in the 6th grade. This was 1960. It was bigger than I was. I had to lay it across a stump to shoot it using cast bullets and light loads.

    Been shooting for years and years in various ways.
    But our oldest guns now are our plinkers .22, .17, that are about 4-5 years old.

    I own a 17 year old Sig P220, and a 19 year old .22 Iverson Arms rifle.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    My oldest gun was bought 6 weeks before I was born by my father. It is a Fox Model B 12 guage double barreled shotgun. I will be 62 in December so will the gun. Both my dad ( now passed on) and I killed our first deer with that gun.
