    Bought a Rem 742 ADL in 30.06 back in the early 70's. It $ucked. It was the only rifle that I could not zero in 35 years. Must have had a bad crown or something. Dumped it.......:mad:

    Remington 878 12 ga in '58. We ordered it from somewhere. I think, but memory could be way off, it was $48. Still have it, but it has a broken piece that is basically irreparable.

    I had owned other guns before this, but the very first on that I ever bought off of the shelf on my own was a 6" S&W Model 19 .357 Magnum. Bought it brand new for $225.00 the day after my 21st birthday.

    All the firearms I've bought so far are used (Most of them older than me) But come tax refund time I'll be buying a factory new AR-15 lower, so I guess that'll be my first.

    Well, I bought a paint ball gun when I was 15. Needless to say I have matured in my taste and my first REAL gun that I bought new was a SIG P220

    First one I ever paid for with my own money was a Ruger .22 Standard Auto when I was 16. Of course I had to give the money ($71 with tax) to Dad since I was too young to buy it myself. First one I ever purchased on my own with my own money. Hmmm...that's kind of tough. I'm betting it was a Ruger Mini 14.
