    The first .22 I actually owned was a Christmas gift for 1959, a Colt Scout revolver. I still have it.

    Mine was a 1934 Mossberg Model 10. Dad bought it from a family friend and banned me from going into the basement for weeks while he carefully repaired the cracked stock and cleaned it up for my 11th birthday. It is a single shot bolt that shoots shorts, longs, and long rifle. I still have it today. I bought a Nylon 66 a few months later from the same man who sold my dad the other one for $30 that I earned mowing yards. I still have it as well and they will be with me forever. My 10/22 and Rossi are more disposable, but I have a hard time letting any gun go once I aquire it. If I have children, they will inherit them, but I am not just going to sell them to some stranger.

    I tend to have a hard time letting them go as well. Probably cuz they've been aquired slowly over the years and low on the need to buy priority.

    When it's hard come by, we appreciate more.

    My first .22 was an old 1906 winchester pump action. Not sure of the model # it was a gift from my grandpa when I was 13. Best little .22 I have ever shot. To bad we lost it in a house fire back in 93..

    Marlin Model 60, squirrel & other woodwork on the stock. My 60 on the other hand is having problems with a broken/ worn extractor pin so it's been double feeding. I gotta get it fixed as soon as I can! I got it for my first x-mas with my dad when I was 10 and I hope to pass it on to my kids, if/ when I have ONE someday. lol

    A Rohm RG10. Shoots 22 short. Gave I believe like 20 or 30 bucks for it. Its a gun all I can say not anything impressive by no means. Not a Ruger by no means.

    17 pulls, into the propwash...
    My dads first .22 caliber rifle was a 1962 Marlin 60, that my ganddad bought him at age 12.

    He passed that on to me when I turned 12, and it became the first .22 rifle I ever owned, or claimed as my own anyways! I feel very honored to say the least. Pretty classic first .22 tho i think! What could be a better "first" rifle for a pre-teen! I still shoot a few hundred rounds through it every year!

    My first 22 lr was passed down from my dad. It's a Remington single shot. I'd have to dig it out of the safe but I'm pretty sure it was made in 1906. I'd be hard pressed to count how much game it's taken.

    I rarely take it out anymore. I've been enjoying my Henry.

    My first .22 was a Marlin model 60 with a dime sized scope that IIRC, cost me $32 brand spankin new at the local Co Op...still have it. It's taken many a squirrel and rabbit. Still shoots great.

    I picked up a new scope and thumbhole stock from Boyds to give her some attention...have yet to finish the stock! Maybe this winter.
