What was your first?

We've been talking about your favorite gun you own, but what was your first?  How about, first gun, age you got it, and first animal you shot with it.....

1) H&R Single shot 20 guage

2) 8 or 9 yrs old

3)  Squirrell.  I think that's how every kid starts.

Poor rabbit, there wasn't anything left was there? lol

My first gun was a H & R 12 ga break-open shotgun. I guess I was 12 and I killed a squirrel for starters.

Mossberg 20 ga. bolt gun,

Mossberg 20 ga. bolt gun, handed down from my great Uncle, to Dad, to me.  Dad didn't actually "give" it to me until I was probably 20 or so.  Killed a rabbit with it.

I have a bolt shotgun handed

I have a bolt shotgun handed down to me too. Mine is a Marlin goose gun with a 36" barrel. I've killed a lot doves with it. My buds call it the mile high gun. I wait until the birds get skedish before I bring it out. Once they're flying higher, I bring it out and toast them. The 36" barrel with a full choke will reach out and touch them.

My first was a bow

My first was a fiberglass bow, age 2.  I Hunted everything that moved in Grany’s yard when I was 5 or 6.  I remember taking a few trophy toads out of the ditch and shot a couple rabbits out there too. 

Got my first gun as a high school graduation present at age 18, 7MM Rem Mag…. First and only thing taken with that rifle was a cow elk in Colorado around 2001.
