I didn't really shoot until I was 28.
My first-ever firearm was a Taurus Model 66, blued steel, 4", 6-shot. I bought it in 1986. Paid $159, as I recall.

Wow, that's pretty!
S&W Model 37 Airweight.
I got this, too.
$30/rifle shipping, but that's still cheap.
Thanks to everyone for their inspiring stories. They do help.
