    dont remember the modle but was an ""OLD"" remington single shot falling block that my grandfather gave to me and later took it back when i went in the service. :( :( my brother and i shot lots of rabbits and squirels for the table with it. while i was gone a worthless cousin talked him into selling to him for $10 cause it was to old and worthless !! it i could find that worthless punk would skin him allive over an ant hill !!!

    My first was a savage model 24 410/22 O/U. Was a great squirrel gun back when I was a youngster in the sixties and I still use it today. I nail a squirrel with it a few years back at about 80+ yards. It was running a tree line on the edge of a hay field, he stop to take a look around big mistake!

    My first .22 was a Winchester Model 62 pump action "Gallery" gun. My God that gun was accurate... I literally shot thousands of rounds through that gun, and never once recall having it malfunction. I got it used when I was 12 (1972) and owned it up through my 30's and was stupid enough to trade it on a Ruger Mk II pistol, that I had to sell because of layoff two years later. How I do wish I had that rifle back sometimes...

    First .22 I ever shot was a Wards Western model 38 at the age of 8 (1968) it belonged to my Grandfather. I still own that rifle. :)

    Ruger 10/22, got it for Xmas during the late 70s or early 80s I believe. Still have it, won't get rid of it. May mod it a bit someday, but it kicks butt right now as is so I haven't felt he need.

    Revelation (Western Auto) can't remember the model #, but it's a Marlin mod 60 semi-auto. My Mom & Dad gave it to me in 1966 for Christmas. Still have it in the safe along w/ 42 other assorted firearms. Matter of fact, took it to the range last Friday and it still shoots great. 3" groups all day long at 50 yrds. Never a FTF or FTE and handles just about any ammo I ever put thru it, and its a bit more accurate then my 1968 Ruger 10/22....I think it cost around $65 back then....
