    What was the first gun you ever shot & do you own it now?


    The first gun I ever shot was a Marlin Model 25 .22lr.

    It was my Dads rifle, I shot it for the first time when I was 7 years old.

    2 years ago I decided I "NEEDED" it for my collection, so I bought my Dad a stainless steel Ruger 10/22 & traded him.

    My Dad told me he thought he was getting the better end of the deal & I told him not every one gets a chance to own the first gun they ever shot!

    My first shooting experience was with a ruger standard(mk1) 22lr. My dad gave it to me a couple of decades ago and like a dumb @ss, I sold it.:( I still have the ruger mk2 that replaced it, that he gave me a few years ago.:D

    It was a Stevens single shot .22 LR. Its still in my dad's stuff, but it'll be mine some day. Still remember burning my thumb shoving ammo into the chamber. He would buy the hundred round boxes of CCI (back when they were still orange boxes) and I could usually shoot up around half before the chamber was too hot and my thumb hurt. All kinds of good times...

    Went out with a friend-of-a-friend who had an excellent collection. Started with a couple mags through some sort of .22 - probably a Ruger MK 2 - and then began my adventure shooting a full drum through an AK. Finished up with an whole tablefull of other fun toys.

    Couldn't have asked for anything better...

    Some .22-caliber single-shot bolt-action rifle that my grandfather gave me. It looked like someone whittled the stock out of a random piece of wood they found in the forest. Every time I shot the thing, pieces of the cartridge case would blow out and hit me in the face. I still don't know what the problem was - bad head-spacing, wrong caliber, who knows. Anyway, it went back to my grandfather and the next gun I shot was probably a H&R .410 single-shot.

    Great topic

    My Dad's Beretta 948 22 pistol when I was about 6, he wouldn't let me shoot the 30-30.
    The Beretta was his glove box gun until they had kids which drove Mom nuts. After we all left home she hid it from him! Earlier this year she found it and gave it me.

Its something i never forgot.

    Can't really say for sure but it was probably a Remington XP-100 in .308. It's my father in laws gun so I don't really have any claim to it but I suspect it will be mine (or at least my wife's) someday.
