      Remington 550-1 .22 bought at a local pawn shop for $50.00. Yeah, I still have it and use it. No telling how many thousands of rounds have been through it.

        I wonder how many of us will say the same thing, my dad bought me a 870 wingmaster in 12ga.

          Remington Model 41 Targetmaster .22, inherited from my great-grandfather. Though I don't shoot it often I still have it and if I am ever blessed with children I will teach them to shoot with it.

                  I saved my money for 2 years from age 6 to 8. to buy a .22 for 4-h rifle shooting. Dad took me and signed the papers but I paid the old boy behind the counter in wadded up 1$ and 5$ bills. picked up a Made in USSR toz-17, he threw in a box of shells and some ear phones I still have, plus a cleaning kit.

                  I still have it, had it out after rabbits a month ago.

                    My first was a single-shot, bolt action J.C. Higgins rifle (actually made by Marlin), ourchased at Sears-Roebuck in Kansas City in 1962. I remember the price; $21, because I had an after-school job and earned every dime. I sold it to a close friend and used the proceeds to purchase my next rifle, a Marlin 39A lever action .22.

                      Mine was a Savage .17HMR and it was a gift from an old boyfriend. I'd never part with it, ever. I use it all the time, mostly for target practice.

                          Mine was a Browning A-bolt .270 that I bought from Gene Taylor's in Grand Junction CO. I was working for them at the time so they gave me a pretty good deal. I still have it and hopefully will pass on to my son.

                            Marlin model 30 A.S. in 30-30. Bought it with my own money when I was 9 years old and like 357, I handed the money over the counter and dad signed the papers. They threw in a box of ammo. I still own it, still own my first shotgun and pistol too.

                              Mossberg youth 20. My uncle bought it for his wife to go deer hunting, but she told him there was no way she was hunting, so he just gave it to me.
