What was your first gun? Do you still own it?

My first gun was a Glock 26 and I plan on keeping it forever. 

I had a single shot 20 gauge shotgun for deer hunting when I was about 8 years old. Sadly i do not still have it. 

Stevens single shot .410 from when I was 5yr old and its in the safe. It has been used for several youngsters to fire their first shots since then.

Yes 12 gauge Mossberg 500 Mariner, such a great shotgun.  Bought it 15 years ago and still shoots great

I still own my first bb gun (daisy), rifle (Marlin .22), and shotgun (Mossberg 20ga).  

I got them at 4,5, and 8.

Rossi Pump 22 Magnum ( Winchester copy).


Still have it.


Was really young when got it, can't remember what age.



Then next Stainless Ruger Single Six 22/22 Magnum.

Still have it, and the box.

A Lorcin .380 I bought from a friend of a friend of a friend for $80 when I was 18. Most of it is at the bottom of a pond now.

I just bought a new Single Six to shoot with my sons.  They are awesome for teaching handgun fundamentals and they are incredibly safe (for the sake of the children).

Mossberg 500 when I turned 18, 20 years ago. Still have it and keep it clean.

Springfield XD40 - sold it

Kimber Solo w/ laser, still own, but have a real hard on for a Chiappa Rhino 2" barrel .357 lately...

 

20 ga S&W model 1000

Got it as soon as it was legal for me to junt

Had a single shot .410 and a Marlin .22 bolt action rifle as a kid.
 

First gun I ever bought as an adult was a SS Colt 1911. That was in ‘91 and I believe I paid $850 for it. Which seems crazy to me given the magnitude of price increases in other things (milk for example) since then. I no longer have it. I had to sell it during some hard times in my early twenties. 

Glock 17.  Keeping it forever

Glock 27 had it almost 10 years. Never gonna get rid of this little ol faithful 

Remington single shot 12 gauge I hunted with when I was growing up. It's at my parents house

Whoooo Hoo! I get to participate!

The new Springfield XDM Elite 9mm 4.5" barrel

Ken206 hates it and I pick it up Thursday! 

At 18 I bought a used Franchi 12 gauge.  2 3/4”   It’s an improved cylinder only, you can’t add chokes.  I still use it twice a year to go dove hunting and occasionally will shoot skeet in the back yard.
