    Remington 514 given to me on my 10th birthday. I'm almost 67 years old and this has been a treasure since the day my father gave it to me. He told me in no uncertain terms that I was to take very good care of this rifle. I feel like I have kept my word. You know it is old when an inexpensive .22 rifle has a walnut stock on it. Back then they never even thought of any other kind of wood for a stock. No serial number either. I own 16 long guns and this little .22 means more to me than all the rest put together. A 57 year old, one owner, single shot .22 rifle in NRA 95% condition or better.

    My first .22 was a Remington 550-1 that was given to me when my Great Uncle Scotty passed away. A few years later I sold it to my brother, then realized my mistake and asked him to let me buy it back.....that was 20+ years ago and I haven't parted with it since.

    Bob & Wife: Quick questions: You obviously have a lot of guns NOT being fired for many months. What type of oils etc, do you use to keep them from getting rusted over their storage time?? New guy, Thanks Bob

    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.

    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. :(

    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."
