    Savage Model 3B bolt action. Shoots straighter than I ever will! Killed many snapping turtles and soda cans with it.

    First Shot... a Nylon 66

    First Owned... A Browning Challenger III. Bought it on my 21st Birthday back in 1984, stupid state rules for pistols :(. Still have it, but my last gunsmith recommended putting her up as she getting to be a collectible. Still functions flawlessly and will leave her fang marks from the slide on your hand if you aren't careful. :) LOL

    Been lurking on this forum a while. Thought I would join the party and chime in... Remington 572 BDL. Pretty nice gun for an eight year old kid. But at the range I still would rather shoot my mom's 512X. Guess I was a bolt gun fan even back then. ;>

    Oh and the first .22 pistol came a while later. A Ruger Mark II when they were first released. The target model with a 6 7/8" bull barrel. I got so mad trying to disassemble it the first time (hit the gun with a @#$@# hammer?) that I ended up selling it shortly thereafter. I sort of regret that decision now.

    Glenfield Marlin Model 60. Put about 500,000 rounds through it and sold it to a buddy who is still shooting it I think.

    Bought an anniversary model and kept shooting.

    I learned how to shoot with my Grandfather Remigton 572 Fieldmaster, made sometime in the '50s. My Dad gave me a new 572 Fieldmaster for Christmas in '85, I was 16. I then later inherited my Grandfathers rifle. They sit next to each other in the safe and enjoy regular exercise.
