    A great story, Steven, and you also get the big BROO HA HA!!!! The instant I read that I thought "How is it I can easily picture my own Dad doing the same thing?" God rest him, I can still recall him telling me many such things many years after the fact.

    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.

    First gun was a rifle, bought it at a shooting range for $ 12.00 in 1968,Marlin 100G single shot 22. Thru thick and thin she is still with me. the Nikon Scope is worth more than the rifle. I checked the serial number, she was made in 1950.

    The 1st gun I actually bought myself (I had a few that were inherited) was a 10-22. Bought new at the local hardware store when I was a senior in HS, 1992. Never shot it and sold it not long after to help buy a transmission for my '72 Chevelle.

    My first rifle was a Winchester model 94 trapper, my money, parent had to do paperwork. Still have it. Never took a deer with it, but to tell the truth, I killed way more deer with my F250 diesel than I ever shot with any of my rifles. My first handgun was an Italian knock-off of the 1851 Remington 44 cal. Back then , blackpowder guns were not held to same laws as cartridge type, don't even know if its still like that or not. but at age 14 and handgun owner the die was cast...on my path

    My first rifle/gun was a Remington Nylon 66 semi-auto 22 rifle. The Brown version. Purchased in about 1963.

    The 2nd handgun I owned was a FIE (I think) single action .22 that looked like a Colt Frontier Scout or Single Six Ruger, etc. and had imitation stag grips that I had mom buy for me at an auction when I was 16 or so. I liked that little .22, but ended up selling it for beer money (or maybe for rent money-can't remember) when I was in Tech School. I was pretty dumb back then. Some might say I haven't changed...

    Belgium Browning Challenger, still New-In-Pouch with manual, and store receipt. This was among the very last before the Challenger II was introduced.
