    It was a single action .22 revolver. I bought it while I was still in college and kept it in my dorm room. Would have probably been kicked out of school if they knew I had it. It was a cheap one. It only cost about $25 new. If I recall corrrectly the name on it was Buffalo. I had it for a year or two and something broke inside the mechanism. I took it to a gunsmith but he said he couldn't get parts for it and Colt parts would not fit it. I never got it fixed. I don't remember what I did with it. That was over forty years ago.

    Savage Stevens 87a tube-fed semi-auto, obtained 5 years ago.

    It was one of the last items left in my father's formerly large (>200 firearms) collection. The action was sitting in a room, so I bought the cheapest stock I could find on eBay & built it up. It shoots great and roped me in to collecting. Bad gun!

    Lithgow model 1 single shot when i was 8, got that and 1 box of ammo and told that would be the last box i'd ever be bought, had to shoot bunnies and sell the skins to get more, and the local butcher bought a few off me if i made it there first thing.

    good days..

    First .22 was a Winchester 190 with the cheap scope. I had a lot of fun with that rifle.

    Next .22 was either a High Standard Military Trophy pistol or an Anschutz 1413, I don't remember which.

    When I was a kid worked for my dad and uncle all summer like a dog doing construction. Deal was any gun I wanted...
    Reality was October came around they took me to sears and got me a JC Higgens single shot .22 . Still have that POS as a reminder "Trust No One"
  8. New to forum. Does bring back memories. I bought from my Grandfather around 1964 a Remington Model 511 that he bought for $12.50 about 1942. I paid him $10.00. He used for killing hogs, it was kept in the corner of the hog cleaning house, open to the wind and rain all year long. Sill have it and the paper tag that hung on the trigger guard with the price penciled in. Told me he bought it and all the ammo the hardware store had as WWII was coming and he needed it to kill hogs!

    My Father's first .22 was a Remington Model 510 which I still have. I think he paid $5.00 for it (second hand) about 1936.

    Long time ago!

    I never owned a .22 until two years ago when I was 53. It's a Winchester 69A that my mom gave me. I now have 18 .22 rifles, and in the last two years I've had about 30 go in and out my door. Talk about a late bloomer.

    That would be a Reminton 550-1 semi-auto. I still think it is an awesome 22. You could mix shorts, longs and long rifles in the tube and just keep shooting. Would cycle with cb caps also.
