    since jekbrown was asking about which gun should he buy made me think which was the first gun owned or fired by everyone. The first one I ever shot was a Colt 1911 Gold Cup National Match, I was 8 at the time, the gun belonged to my uncle, which he bought when I was about 3, and I have the gun in my possession now. Now the gun is 28 years old and still in excellent condition.

    As far as I can remebre, it was a Ithaca Gun Model 37 Featherweight 12 GA my dad bought me for deer hunting back in NY.

    Good gun. I wish I hadn't sold it last year when $$ was so tight. Come to think of it, I wish I hadn't sold 4 of my guns then, but what can you do /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    no-name .22 at boy scout camp! I didn't know the name, and then it didn't matter, it was just fun to hit the target with irons.

    .22 rifle. I don't know the who made it, and at the time, I didn't care. It was a HUGE step up from my BB gun.

    you mean.... this?

    been there, done that... mah-duce too... AT4 still was cooler. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Mk19 was definitely a close second though. Its the infantry-mans ultimate response to the "human wave" attack. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    12ga shotgun... I was 10, standing with my dad at the edge of a ridge somewhere in Oregon.

    All I remember is squeezing my eyes shut, pulling the trigger and picking myself up off the ground. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
