Rossi pump action .22 for my 13th birthday.

First rifle I bought myself? Hard to remember but I think it was a Russian SKS in 1992.

20ga Winchester 1300 from Walmart. Got it when I was 12 so I could go trap shooting with dad. It's still in the safe, now in use as a home defense gun.

Springfield Model 15 .22 single shot rifle.

Purchased it for $15.00 in 1975 (age 15) from the grandson of Gennaro "Jerry" Angiulo, head of the Boston branch of the Patriarca Mafia family.

Hid it in the crawlspace in the celler. Snuck it out to shoot cans out in the woods.

My next door neighbor grew up in North Boston and was friends with him. She and her husband would take my mother and father and us kids over to "Uncle Jerry's" place for cookouts in the summertime.

My brother gave me his Winchester 1300 for my 18th birthday. I also learned not to do a PPT at Big 5 that day, after a 22 day waiting period.

I had other guns prior, but my very first gun I bought new was a S&W 586. I bought that gun on my 21st birthday. My very first gun was a Daisy lever action bb gun, I was 5years old.

Besides a pellet gun at 5 years old, mine was a Rossi .22 pump when I was 8 yrs old that my parents bought at a local dept store in 1978. Still have it, my friend's son put about 400 rounds through it on monday and it works great.

First rifle was 10/22 when I was 10, still have it. Man I fell in love with the smell of spent gun powder. Still brings back memories.

I bought a brand new Ithaca Model 37 Featherlight 12 ga. for $130 from Central Hardware in Indianapolis. Actually, my mother had to go along since I was 15. I guess that made me a Straw Buyer.

Still have it.
