My first gun was a M16. I did not own it but I got to shoot it, sleep with it, and take it everywhere I went.

Browning auto-5 light 12

Lots of good times spent with stepdad, uncles, cousins, and friends taking upland birds with that gun. It's still as beautiful as the day I got it ~20yrs ago

It got confiscated by the police when they arrested me, and I got a letter in the mail a year later telling me that I had to go pick it up or they were going to throw it away. They gave me all my ammo back too (a few thousand rounds, which still fired), which surprised me too.

It's still my dad's. He won't let me have it till the day he dies. lol. The USP is pretty accurate when I use it, though the true-dot sights tend to make pointing the thing a little harder than with the Python. I shot a .40 USP expert with adjustable sights and found it easier to put rounds where I want them.

Marlin Model 60.

I saved up my allowance for a few weeks and my dad and I bought it at Best Products. It was the early 1980's. I still have the rifle, and recently put a Boyd's stock on it.

Sorry for the cruddy cell phone pictures...

My first long gun was a brand new Remington pump action 270, given to me by one of my uncles when I was 12. It is now with my sister & her husband. I traded her for my dad's 1973 or 1974 20ga Ithaca featherlight SG.

My first hand gun was (is) a Ruger P89DC. Purchased in 1993. It was stolen from my home during a burglary in December 2008, and recovered 2.5 years later......apparently not fired much (if at all) while away from its home, but it was evidently carried alot judging by the wear to the finish.

My first gun given to me was a pumpmaster BB gun and still at my Dads house.

My first handgun I bought was a springfield XD 9mm Service model.
My first rifle I bought was a stag arms model 2t 5.56. both purchased about 7 months ago but only got to shoot them for about 2wks then deployed cannot wait to start shooting again.

future plans:
mossberg 500 tactical persuader
colt or Sa 1911 70 series or Mil-spec I don't like front strap cheackering.

The 5" is a performance center with a 1:10 twist rate to stabilize 700 grain bullets. You probably won't see this one sale. Although not as pretty as I think, it's quite a shooter. Some how I wanted a full underlug =]

My first gun was given to me when I was 8 in 1980. It was a real Belgium Browning 22 that had belonged to my Grandfather. I still have it.

Not till I to older did I realize it was a very nice firearm.

My first gun was an AK-47. It was all down hill from there . Seemed like every month a new gun was finding a new home in my safe. Congrats on the new firearm.
