Every hunter or shooter remembers his or her first gun like it was yesterday. For a lot of us, it was our gateway into the sport, or the sign that you had committed interest. So, as the title asked, what was your first firearm, under what circumstances did you receive it, and when did you receive it.
I'll go first, It was a Remington 870 Wingmaster 20ga with a 28" VR barrel, and a 20" smoothbore slug barrel. I received it for Christmas shortly after I turned 13, it was my gateway into serious hunting, letting me chase everything from rabbits, squirrels and turkey to whitetail deer. My gun cabinet has grown in a big way but that shotgun still fills a special niche.
