    Well, first came the Daisy BB rifle,
    followed by some kind of pump up pellet rifle.

    The first "real" gun was a Remington Nylon 66 in .22 LR,
    followed by a single shot 20 ga.

    I no longer have any of them.

    It was a Sears-Roebuck, Marlin-made .22 bolt action rifle made in the late 40s or early 50s. My mom gave it to me when I was 10 or 11. :cool:

    I had to be careful of the bolt unscrewing itself and the slide safety would come off just by tilting the rifle, but I surely had fun with it and learned a lot by using it.

    Mine were a Sig 228 and a Mossberg 500, bought at the same time. I swore to the wife those would be the only 2 guns ever purchased.:evil: Now 40 guns and 5yrs later. She is still with me, and I tell her that they are "for the children."

    My first gun was a Marlin 22LR bolt action rifle when I was a kid. I loved that rifle. Wish I still had it. :(

    My first handgun was a CZ75B 9mm. I love that handgun and I still do have it. :)

    I was taught how to shoot on a Ithica Model 49 single shot. The first gun I bought is a Colt Woodsman Match Target in 1968. I still have both.

    The first gun I shot was .32 Webly & Scott Revolver. I have no idea what happened to it. It was my brother's and he does not know where did it go. Probably rusted into its demise.

    The first gun bought was a .32 Rossi Revolver, and someone stole that as WELL!:fire::fire:

    Then I did not buy handgun for a while and focused on other weapons, until in 1992 I bought .357 King Cobra pair, in black 6" and SS 4". Now nobody is stealing them two from me, and sneaking out alive.:(

    Polish .22lr bolt action trainer given to me by an uncle.

    First gun I ever purchased... a Charter Arms .22lr semi auto pistol that looked like a Mauser Broomhandle... I cant remember the model. It was horrible...

    Next was an Ithaca 37 16g... still have that one.

    There I go again, just half-way reading the thread titles! :rolleyes: :eek:

    You were apparently asking specifically about handguns, but it appeared under handguns/autoloaders.

    Okay, my first non-autoloader handgun was a Dan Wesson Model 15-2 .357 Magnum with a 6" barrel. It was very nice but it locked up on me. After getting it running, I traded it towards a Taurus PT 92. :cool:

    I still owned the DW when I bought my first autoloading handgun. It was an FIE Titan II in .380. It wasn't very refined in terms of fit and finish, but it actually gave decent service.
