    My first gun was an H & R .410 single shot. Not bad for birds and bunnies. The youngest boy had to use it with punkin balls for deer. Anyone else remember their first gun ?

    Western Auto Revelation 100. 22 cal. single shot. Its a Mossberg 320. Bought it new in 1964. It was around $12. I was 14 years old. I still have it and shoot it a few times a year. Still very accurate.

    First was a Daisy BB. Then a .22 single shot bolt. It was the first firearm in our home and I must have been 13 or so.

    Other than my Daisy BB gun, my first gun was a Stevens/Savage .410 bolt action single shot. I still have it and use it for squirrels.
