Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
My first rifle was a Sears 25 auto (High Standard A1041) as a Christmas gift from my dad in 1963 (I was 12). Loaned it to a friend in 1968 and someone stole it. Always wanted to relace it, and last week I did, from a seller on GunsAmerica. This one is identical and in perfect condition. Found another at a local gun show, and now have 2. With 4 grandkids, I think I'll find a few more to pass on.
