My first firearm that I ever shot was a little Ruger 22. It was back in the day when I was about 12 or so. Ever since, I was hooked, and I can't get enough of shooting of guns! I'm pretty sure that's most everybody's firs gun they shot!

.22 bolt action. Grandpa's rifle. Still have it. Good shooter. I remember the first time my Dad let me shoot his 12 Ga, after much pestering from me. Knocked me on my ass. He laughed his ass off.
Good times.

Sounds like you have one of those Mossberg 51M rifles Ace was asking about.

Side by side 12ga. Grandad told me if I was big enough to hold it up level I was big enough to shoot it. Turns out he wasn't completely right.

my first

My first was a rem. bolt action 22. Bugged my dad for a long time to shoot the semi-auto's. He always told me that I would learn to be a much better shot with less rounds going down range. After all these years I would still rather shoot a single shot. Go figure.

It is, Vaquero.

You can easily teach someone who's merely ignorant or misinformed of the facts of a subject. Moe's mom and many like her just were misinformed, once they saw the truth, they saw the light. However, some people like those whale droppings we call Washington liberals are just stupid, and you can't fix stupid.

Just yesterday I was reading more stats about the crime rates in Chicago and Wash DC verses crime rates in the real world. Unbe-damn-leavable.
If the liberals were allowed to lay on the waterboard we'd be shocked at what their real agenda is. I'd give my left nut to see "The One" share some information with the citizens of this fine nation. Ya 'spose he'd like to volunteer to try out the water board?

First gun

First gun I ever owned was a Remington bolt action .22, next a H&R 12 gauge single shot. First I ever shot all in the same week was a Kentucky flintlock rifle, and a black powder percussion shot gun thanks to the instructor at the gun safety class my dad sent me to. Also my dads .348 Winchester which gave me a black eye for getting a little too close to the scope. Was 12 years old at the time.
