    I have a HK USP Compact 45 that I bought in 1999. It was actually my third gun.

    My father gave me an old S&W 38 (don't remember which model, well worn), which I traded for a S&W 6906.

    Had that a couple of years before trading for the HK.

    Not really fond of the DA/SA now, never carry it, just sits in the safe.

    All guns bought from 1974-1984 are sold off.
    Ruger 10-22 bought in 1985 is my oldest.

    A Winchester 94 in 30/30 purchased new around 1975 from a department store called Ann & Hope. Price less than $100 I recall. Carried for years in Maine on hunting used by my self and two sons. Still sits in the safe hasn’t been fired in 20 years or more. Most of the bluing around the receiver had been worn away by hand carrying they the woods.

    I still have the first gun I bought. Mossberg 500 from 1982. Bought it brand new from the Eielson AFB Exchange near Fairbanks, Alaska. My first duty base.

    I've had a super blackhawk in stainless, 7.5", and hogues for about 6 years. I've shot it a lot with the stock laminates and the hogue and despite the aesthetics im never going back. Besides, rubber isn't nearly as bad on stainless.


    Ruger put a new barrel on it when the silver souldered front sight came off the old barrel, and the threaded it not quite 100% and canted the front sight to shoot straight. Looks silly but shoots super great. I'll never sell this thing.

    My oldest is a single-shot Remington .22 Model 514. I received it for Christmas in 1964, when I was 10 years old and still have it. Second oldest is a Remington 870 that I bought new in 1979. I have another .22 and .410 that I inherited (and are much older), but those don't have the sentimental attachment that my own guns do.
