    My first 22 I woned was a M&P 15-22. I know it isn't as classic as some of the others listed. But I love it. My 9 Year old son loves it too. Hopefully, one day he will post on a forum somewhere about having fond memories with poppa shooting the little black gun that could

    A Sears single shot bolt action that was an awesome shooter. I regret getting rid of it to pay bills in my early 20s.

    My Grandpa gave me my first .22 It was a Wards WesternField pump with a tubular mag. It shoots short, long or long rifle. I stll have it. I took it out and fixed the breech on it a couple of yrs ago. I quit shooting it because there was movement in the breech. Didn't know what I was doing but it went back together and works! So it is back in the safe, not worth much but will never be sold.

    For me a full stock Mossberg 151M, the first series with a brass magazine tube. It is/was capable of hitting 12 gauage shot shells at 75 yards with ammo it liked. Still have it in the safe.

    Still have and shoot it. Has shot a bunch of squirrels. Next one was 45 yrs later-a CMP 40x. There were a couple of 22 handguns in the interim.

    I was around 12 years old when I made my own .22 and that was the first .22 I actually owned. (My folks never found out about it.)
