My first wasa Crossman 760 airgun with a Daisy 4x15 scope. My first real firearm was a Harrington & Richaedson INC. 410. Still have both of them to pass on to my kids.

My First Gun

My first gun was a single shot .410 that my grandfather bought me. It was mail order and I don't know the name brand, but I think it was made in Brazil or somewhere like that. It's at my dad's house so I can't look at it to see.

First guns

1. Flobert breech loading 22 with an octagonal barrel &... often got "breech flash" in yer eyes so it was mostly a conversation piece, seldom shot.
2. Remington bolt action single shot 22... you could shoot a wart off a frog's ass at 50 paces if your eyes were good enough. Hell, I couldn't see the rear sight now... sold them with a bunch of others 'cause my ex-wife didn't like guns. I sure do miss her... the Remmy, I mean.

My first gun

Daisy 22 bolt action. That's right, daisy made a 22 rifle. It was a piece of shit, but it went bang and got me hooked.

I honestly don't even know what happened to it. My mom got me a 10/22 for christmas and I never touched the daisy after that. I'm sure it got pawned when I joined the army, knowing my family.

A S&W for me

S&W Model 66 357 w 4" barrel, stainless with custom wood grips. I got chills when I held that gun for the first time and I still do today, 20 years later. I knew I had to own it and make shooting it a part of my life. It is perfectly balanced and begs to have it's trigger pulled! The gun that turned me into a shooter. Thank God.

Yeah buddy.
