Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
I grew up shooting my dads winchester mod 06 gallery gun. One of the most accurate guns I have ever shot to this day.
In 59 I was 17 and decided to buy my own which was the Remington Nylon 66.
I still have it and shoot it regularly.
I have now gotten enough of them to give one to each of my grandkids when they are old enough. I gave one to a granddaughter and one to a grandson on their birthdays this year.
9 more to go.
One of the toughest guns ever made and extremely accurate and seem never to wear out. I used my 66 on my beaver and bobcat/ coyote trap line and when I went in the service my younger brother took it over and used it until I got home in 66.
I have no idea how many thousands of rounds this gun has fired but it still a tack driver.
