Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
Glenfield Marlin Model 60. Put about 500,000 rounds through it and sold it to a buddy who is still shooting it I think.
Bought an anniversary model and kept shooting.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that. Shane

We recall the case of the Shoshone war band which showed up complete with one 30-30 rifle per man the week after Pearl Harbor, and simply wanted to have the enemy pointed out to them. "We hear there's a war going on and we want to go fight it." Jeff Cooper
