    First 22 that I paid for is a Ruger Mark II with red dot and Hogue grips.

    It wasn't that many years ago.

    My first .22 was a Marlin Model 80DL. It was a bolt action rifle with a 7-shot magazine. It came with a rear peep sight and a hooded post front sight with a bead. I purchased the gun in 1961 when I was 7th grade. I still own it.

    I had a Mossberg 144 and wish I still had it! This was in the 50's and I took it with me when I was in the Army stationed on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. My second is a Remington 66 that I haven't fired in over twenty years.

    you sure that's not a full .45acp? I don't know of any 1911's that com as .22's right out of the box without a conversion kit.

    That Colt Ace is the real thing. I think there were three issues of the Ace, two before WWII and the final one ending in 1982. They are a beautiful .22 semi auto and match the 1911 exactly. Problem for me is they are getting pricey like all those Colts and I am afraid to take it out much any more. I got this one in 1982 and it is a joy to shoot.

    A Remington 510 that I traded my Eisenhower Jacket for in 1948. I still have it.
    Markings on Barrel KSS makes it Manufactured in May 1947. I have bought and sold many guns over the years but this one will be with me until I croak.
    There is no way in hell that I could ever part with it since it carries many fond memories.
    If you come across one at a reasonable price, buy it, you won't be sorry you did.
  12. mine was a Marlin 60 and still have it ,i got it when i was around 9or 10, my first gun was a remigton 20 gauge pump

    My first 22 is a High Standard Trophy. I love its adjustable 2 stage trigger.:D I bought it at age 22 at the Marine Corp exchange at MCRD in San Diego. I was in the Navy stationed on the USS Ranger CV-61 at North Island and the Navy exchanges didn't carry guns. :(
  14. My father had a Mossberg 44US with both the original peeps and a Weaver K4, that I inherited on his passing (I was just a youngster when he died.) It was as heavy as a deer rifle, but to a teen age boy who was a complete gun nut, and wanted to "bond" with his memories of his dad, it was FANTASTIC. Also, the thing was a tack driver (if you could get used to the not exactly wonderful trigger) and accounted for a vast number of squirrels in the PA woods. :) Passed it on to my younger brother when I was able to afford another .22 bolt, and so that he could have some of the same experiences with "Dad's gun."
