Good ol' Mossberg 500. Didn't come from a firearm bearing family so I had to establish that tradition myself. Just had a little one and will have to decide between semi, lever or bolt action .22 for his first

A Savage Model 20-V over-under, .22 over 20 gauge. I still have it and I still shoot it, though its not a very good gun.

Dad wanted to get me a squirrel/rabbit gun and found it used in the newspaper when I was 11 (1982). I remember shooting a beer bottle with the .22 in some guys back yard before Dad paid $75 for it. It shoots great, but I've had the hammer mounted selector switch repaired 3 times and the plastic trigger guard replaced once. I finally gave up and took the torch and a grinder and made a steel trigger guard for it out of a gate hinge.

My kids shoot it, but the narrow straight drop stock makes 20 gauge kicks like a mule.
People that can name all of their guns in their forum signature don't have enough guns.

Mine was a CZ52, traded it for A Chinese SKS. Sold the SKS for 350 bucks. Took the 350 and used it to move across the country. Now I'm back up to 3 guns but I'm seriously considering getting a part time job to supplemement a gun slush fund.

Sig P232 Stainless, bought it used for $200 a few years back. It's been a sweet gun but unfortunately hard times are forcing me to sell it in a couple weeks.

My first gun was a Daisy lever action BB gun I bought with my paper rout money when I was 10. First real gun was a Browning T-bolt .22 that my dad gave me for Christmas when I was 13. Still have the Browning.

Ruger 10/22. it was as accurate as can be stock, then I foolishly messed with it and gave it a custom stock and barrel and it wasn't as accurate any more. so I sold it. Lesson learned.

SIG P229 9mm, back in 1998. Bought it myself, still have it, still my favorite 9mm. Everything else I own has been a fruit of that tree.

Christmas 1955. I was such a gun nut by the time I was 5 that my grandparents gave me a BB rifle with a wire wall rack that held the rifle and the red metal cleaning kit.

I still have the kit with the glass bottles of bluing, oil and such, but the gun wore out 30 years ago.

Oh come on. This one is in much better condition than mine with its sealed bottles and nearly perfect paint, but $92 for a Daisy cleaning kit?

Marlin 81DL that I got for my 10th Christmas. I still have it 67 years later and it still shoots like a dream ... and I think of my Dad every time I shoot it or see it in my gun rack. Thanks, Pop! Love 'ya!

I got a Marlin model 99 22lr in about 1964, although I wasn't allowed to keep it in my room until I turned 16. It's been on countless camping and fishing trips with me on the back of a dirt bike, been rained on numerous times, been treated a little rough sometimes, but I always cleaned it good when I got it home. Still shoots as good as it did the day it was new. I wish I had a nickel for every round I've shot through that thing over the years.

NEF Pardner 20 gauge was my first. I still have it, although it has some very small pitting on the surface from being stored in the garage.

My first was a Stevens 311 C 20 ga. SxS .I bought it with the cash I earned on my first trap line when I was 12 . I think the grand total for the shotgun & 2 boxes of ammo was $78 at the local J.C. Penny's store.

A bolt action Harrington and Richardson .22 rifle that I received from my folks for Christmas around 45 years ago when I was 12 or 13. I still have it and still shoot it regularly.
