    Not the one Uncle Jack gave you, the first one you bought.

    Mine was Ruger 9mm, had it about a year then traded it in for a Beretta .380, traded that in for Beretta 9mm, traded that in for another Beretta 9mm and still have that one. After that I've kept everyone I bought.

    Still have the first gun I ever bought. I still have all the guns I have ever acquired. Like them all so I can never figure out which ones to sell.

    Nope.

    And if I had all the guns I'd ever bought, I'd need a bigger house.

    If I didn't sell & trade, there'd be no way I could have enjoyed the hundreds of guns I've had the pleasure of owning. Every so often, you find a real keeper out of the crowd. ;)

    Tamara,

    did you really say "hundreds of guns"?

    Cslinger came really close to selling his first. Ruger P97. Money was low but I talked him out of it. That gun has been good to him and it (like anything first) holds a sentimental value.

    On the other hand, we did trade quite a few guns over the last couple of years but the first one stays.

    Still have it. A model 28 I bought new at the end of 1973, right after I turned 21 and could legally purchase a handgun. Paid the princely sum of $129.95 for it at a sporting goods store.

    No.

    I have a problem of constantly selling/and or trading them in for something new ....

    Does anyone know of a pill that might cure my disease?!?

    Yep, Ruger SP101.

    Unless you count the Crossman 770 bb gun which has been passed down to the lowercase L's.

    Nope. My 1st gun was a POS Taurus 380 that I sold to help pay for my 2nd handgun, my P7M8 (which I still have) :D

    Yes , Inland M-1 Carbine purchased 1974 when I was 13 . I cleaned a horse barn for $2 hr . Pd $75 for it .

    I had a choice of the M1 or Enfield #5 Jungle Carbine . Glad I chose the carbine . I had a #5 later and it kicked like a mule .

    Yep, first pistol was a Kimber Polymer Stainless. I still have my first rifle, Sprinfield M1A. Kimber sees less range time cuz I got a STI Trojan. M1A sees lotsa range time.

    The only gun I have ever sold was my first one. Bought it when I was 12 or 13. Sure would like to have that 870 back.

    Yes.

    Actually had to have my Father buy it for me, as I was only 18 at the time.

    A Polish Radom 9mm with Nazi acceptance stamps. $125.

    I still have the first two I bought free and clear in my own name, too, a Charter Arms Off Duty and a Savage 99 in .300 Sav.

    I've bought and sold a few others since then, but the Beretta 92 that was the first gun I purchased is still with me. Of course, it does have a bit of company now....
