Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
New to TFF also...
12 years old, all the Christmas presents open, and done with breakfast. Dad walked out to the driveway, and returned shortly with a box that was too short to be a rifle, too long for a handgun. Opened it up and it was COLD, to the point of condensing when brought into the warm house. At 16 I got to keep it in my room. I will never forget those two moments in my life.
Still got to this day and hopefully will pass it to my only son when he is ready.
