Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
My dad and I went canoeing out of Ely, MN in '68. When We got back to the outfitters (Bill Rom's Canoe Country) they had a sweet little Colt Huntsman behind the counter. My dad looked it over and we walked out the door with it for $45. This was the first firearm in our house. I was 17 at the time. Years later my dad offered it to me for that same $45. Dad has gone but that Colt is still in my safe. It'll probably go to my son-in-law when I'm gone.
