    Can't remember what age, but the first gun I owned was a New England Firearms Youth 12ga, the first 22lr I actually owned was a Savage Mark I Single shot, I still have both and will pass them down if/when I have children.

    A Winchester Model 67 single shot that I bought from Sears for $10 with money earned from picking cotton at age 12.

    Dad, with Mom's grudging assent, bought me a Marlin 81-DL for Christmas when I was around 11, which would have been the early 1950's. Still have it today. Already passed it on to my son & I expect him to pass it on to my grandson. Dad wasn't into guns (only owned one L.C. Smith SxS in 16ga.), but he could see I was after proving myself trustworthy (I guess) with a Daisey BB rifle. Was the terror of the frog pond on my cousin's farm. Hank

    My first 22 rifle was a Remington 511 Scoremaster. Bought it used for $3 when I was a kid.
    My first shot gun was a Stevens .410 single barrel, modified choke. Dug post holes to get that when I was a kid. Still have it.

    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.
