    My first .22 was an H&R 9 shot revolver. Wish I kept it.

    Wow! What a memory. The first handgun I ever shot was my Uncle's 9 shot .22 H&R revolver. I was living with my Uncle one summer in Superior, Wisconsin and playing baseball. He hired me and a teammate to do some work at his cabin. He let us shoot his H&R when we done with chores. It was a great shooter. I left for home at the end of the summer and the other kid stole my Uncle's gun! We were 14 years old. Nothing good ever happened to that kid - he spent many years behind bars - and the handgun was never returned.

    Marlin model 60, still got that rifle.

    Bet I've got 50K (or more) rounds through that thing.

    Ruger MkII in SS with target sights and long barrel. Tack driver then and still one now. Love that weapon. Had one issue with it back in the days before the internet. Called them, they said send it on in and we'll look at it. I got it back in ~2 weeks with new grips and a note saying that the target grips were the problem (I installed them not Ruger) and they had fixed it and to enjoy my MkII - No Bill was included! Made a Ruger fan out of me (I was already a MkII fan).

    Don't know the model # but it was a single shot bolt action Winchester that had a knob on the rear of the bolt that you pulled back to cock it after chambering a round, it has a safety in front of the cocking knob that twisted to block it from moving forward to fire

    Ok looked it up , it was a Winchester model 67

    This is a great thread. I love reading stories about how rimfire got people shooting. I especially like the stories of old rimfires from when it seems every house had a .22 rifle or revolver.

    After my Daisy pellet rifle, the .22 rifle was my first firearm. I ran through the woods with a Remington model 66. I have the brown nylon stock.

    This H&R Model 700 .22 WMR. Bought back in 1983 and it does not have 500 rds through it. Nearly perfect. Still have it.

    My first rimfire is a Remington Speedmaster that I inherited from my brother. It's in the safe, I haven't shot it yet, but I did buy a scope for it. Someday...
    When my dad passed, I got his Walther PPK/s in .22, a Derringer .22 (High Standard?) and a Savage take apart .22 over 20Ga single shot break barrel with a leather carrying case.
    All of these were new in the early '70s.
    We used to shoot pellet guns in the early '70s in the back yard, but once in awhile dad would bring out the .22/20ga and let me shoot it. I was probably 10 years old or so. That 20ga had a lot of kick for a 10 year old.

    The first gun I bought was a S&W 686 6" in the mid '80s. (had it for a year before I told my parents about it) Back then, we could just walk out the back door and blast away as much as we could afford. Unfortunately, we started to get neighbors and the backyard shooting went away.

    My first .22LR was made by my Uncle George. He made two; one for me and one for his son that were miniature single shot bolt action rifles made to fit us as we were very young. Sorry no pics available; sad story as to why. I fired many a round through it before outgrowing it.
