Now that sounds like a good topic to go along with your first caliber topic. BB and pellet guns not included of course.

I actually still have my first gun which my dad bought me when I was 12 to go dove hunting and it is a single shot Stevens 410. I havent fired it since 1983-4. Being the first day of dove season I should go test it out.

What was your first ever gun?

My grandpa gave me his Champion too, but in a 12. It wasn't until he passed away though.

My first real rifle. It was stolen when I was away in boot camp. Found it again many years later in a pawn shop. It's a factory sporterized .303 British Enfield.

My dad gave me, my brother, and my mom Remington 1100s when I was 8. Won a lot of money shooting clays with it. Still my bird/clays gun. First gun I bought myself was a ruger p94.

Savage single shot .410. I still remember going over to the Western Auto in Olney with my dad to buy it. That was 42 years ago and that little shotgun still gets a workout.

Lol...We got a lot in common. H&R single shot .410 for Christmas in '84. I was 11. Still have it in great shape and it's now my sons. He shot it last year for the first time and I think he's hooked. Going out Saturday to make some memories!

J.C. Higgins (Marlin) .22 bolt action, purchased at Sears in 1958 with money I had earned from my paper route, shoveling snow, cutting grass, etc. Still have it. My kids all learned to shoot with it.

H&R 410 single shot. My uncle bought and dad cut the stock down to about 6" long. First time I shot it killed a rabbit and got a bloody nose. I was 3 years old. Still have the gun. It hasn't been shot in years.

My first shot gun was a Sears & Roebuck 410 single shot, but had a 3 shell clip. Love that gun.

New England firearms single shot .410 I got on my 7th birthday just before dove season started in 1994. I didn't do very good that year but still have it and always will.
