The one I've owned the longest is a Winchester model 94 that my Dad gave me in 1970. The oldest gun I own is a 1910-15 area Stevens model 44 Ideal in .25 Stevens Rimfire. This one belonged to my gr-grandfather, and I even have almost a full box of Stevens ammo for it.

My wife and I have a WWII Japanese Asikara rifle. I belonged to her grandfather who brought it home from there. It still has the Emperor's insignia on it, but it was rechambered for 30.06. It had been his hunting rifle for many many years.

My oldest is the XD-40 I have, was re-introduced into firearms and target shooting last year, as well as Conceal Carry, and the bug bit pretty hard, and viola, new hobby for me.
Is actually my favorite gun as well, It is an old SxS in 16 ga and was bought used for my grandmother to use when she turned 12 years old. Which puts it coming into our family 60 plus years ago. Internal hammers and ejectors tells me it was a high quality gun for its day and it shows that SxS points and balances as well as some very exspensive trap guns I have handled.
My Smith & Wesson M-76 and Military Armament Corp. M-10. Both purchased in 1975.
