      My first long gun was a Browning 22 lever action.

      My first handgun was a Colt 22 Woodsman Match Target.

      Mr. West, not every situation requires your patented approach of shoot first, shoot later, shoot some more and then when everybody's dead try to ask a question or two.

        Remington Mohawk Nylon 66 with the detachable 10-rd magazine. Should have kept it for the sake of memories, but alas it didn't like CCI Stinger and in a fit of poor finances I sold it some few years later.

              My first gun was a "Sears & Roebuck Ted Williams" bolt-action single-shoot .22LR, that you have to cock before firing. It was given to me by parents while I was in high school.
              First one I bought was a S&W 6906 9mm pistol. First rifle I bought was a Norinco MAK-90 Sporter. First shotgun: Mossberg 590 with full-length mag tube and 'marine-coat' finish.
              I still have all 3.

                My first rifle was a Diana md#34, hey dont laugh that sucker would knock a rabbit a** over tea kettle at 50 yds.
                My first pistol was a Colt frontier scout .22 complete with fancy black cowboy rig.

                No coward soul is mine
                No trembler in the world's storm troubled sphere
                I see heavens glories shine
                And faith shines equally
                Arming me from fear

                  7 years old, Savage .410 single barrel. Dad cut the stock down so the length of pull fit. I still have it.

                  First rifle was an M1 carbine. I carried it deer hunting. Never killed a deer though. I must have shot at 25 or so.

                  Killed my first deer at 11 with a bolt action M77 in .243. One week later, I got 2 more with a 1100 20 ga.

                  Only hunt now for the meat. I was fortunate enough to have a father whom taught firearm safety and carried my brother and I hunting.

                              First handgun I owned was a .357 wheel gun. Huge thing and my exhusband traded it for something he wanted (hmmm).

                              Right after my divorce I found a sporterized Enfield. When I moved back home and left my weapons behind I found it was still in mom's closet.

                              It got me started on the gun collecting. I now have a safe overfilled with rifles and a few handguns.

                              Favorite handgun - the Beretta 92F I bought from my father who got it new in 1984 and had put less than 100 rounds through it when he sold it to me.

                              Best investment I ever made.

                              Now I seem to collect 03's and 03A3's. Got 3 of them and 4 Enfields along with a variety of other rifles both bolt action and semi's.
