The first rifle that I actually saved up the money and bought was a Winchester model 100 in .308. Took my first buck with it that fall.... must have been about 1963. My first pistol was a Colt Frontier Scout with both the .22 LR and the .22 Magnum cylinders. I bought that one from a friend at college 1969. I still have both of them and still shoot the Colt occasionally. I need to dig that Winchester out and put some rounds through it.
