    As a kid; one of our springtime rituals was to carry squirt guns when it got warm enough and we all had spring fever. My favorite squirt guns were all copies of German Lugers, which I admired so much on TV and movies. Even as a squirt gun they point well and became my favorite style of squirt gun. Haven't found any pictures of myself with any squirt gun and when I grew up the real Lugers that I always admired became too expensive and I sort of gave up on owning one. Then in 2001 I inherited a Luger that an uncle had brought home from Germany in 1945. Made me wish I still had one of those Luger squirt guns so I could photograph one of my childhood toys with the real thing. A few years ago I came across a Luger squirt gun on E-Bay; bought it and got some pictures of some of my toys from then and now..... My Luger "collection" is now complete, LOL..... IMG_5525.JPG

    Nice Lugers.....but you need the companion "Luger cap gun" to finish the set.

    First picture of me with a gun in it. This is also the first time I ever went hunting. The girl in the picture is a friend from small kid times, and her dad is the one that actually shot that doe....we just took a photo op lol.

    Never really took pictures at least not shooting, if I did have any they were lost in the 2011 flood.

    Scientists are still unsure if it's the high altitude or volcanic soil lol.

    Every time I see hunters wearing warm weather clothing, I've got to admit I'm a little jealous (he says as he just finished snow blowing 5", and 3rd snow in a week.) lol

    Nice pictures!

    I remember dad working with me on that. About the only gun lesson I had from him. He taught himself to shoot, started with a 10 gauge at age 5. New jeans to grow into and a tee from the Shriner's circus. Those were the days before the women ruled the house. o_O

    When I got my first rifle at age 10, it wasn't a big deal. At least not enough for a picture. We were a free country in 1956.

    There are pics of me with my first deer. Before that I’m not sure. My mother has all the old pictures and I dare not ask to see any of them for fear of starvation before the photo albums get put away. I do have a pic of me with my first revolver killed buck at age 16, and first turkeys at age 17. I shot a whole lot before that so who knows what pictures my granny snapped or mom got when I was a youngster still learning.

    August 1977... I first shot the old single shot .410 when I was 10 up in the pasture of our family’s ranch. I can’t recall the make, it may have been a Stevens...

    Then I sat patiently by the garage waiting for a mourning dove to land by the bird feeder after season opened on September 1st.

    Sadly, when one finally landed I was so excited to get my first dove I completely missed it and peppered a sparrow with 7 1/2 shot instead. The dove flew off unscathed and I never forgot the feeling of remorse for killing something I didn’t intend to. I’ve avoided needless killing ever since. (Hunting edible game or pest/predator management? Not an issue. :thumbup:)

    Stay safe.

    Not much has changed to be honest. 1972 I think.

    That looks like a big 'ol '62 Chrysler, with a 3 body trunk. Great for drive-in movies. lol
