    Mine was a single shot shotgun (I can’t even remember the brand) but I remember it was called the silver hunter. Super cheap is the only reason I bought it, didn’t have any money then I just wanted to buy a gun when I turned 18, I believe it was $129.99 at the bargain barn in Jasper. That thing would just about kill you every time you pulled the trigger. I tried finding them online and I can’t find them, I remember it was made in Turkey though. What was all y’all’s first purchases?

    edit: it was a TR imports silver eagle 12 gauge youth. I can’t find one that looks like mine but it’s stainless, all I see now is blued.

    Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 at a gun show when I was 15 with my own hard earned tobacco cash. Up until then, my Dad kept me in pretty good shape on guns. I just HAD to have a Blackhawk. It's been an expensive, but increasingly wise addiction since.
    From the time I was about 4yo Dad was taking me to the gun shows and buying fine peices. I was raised in it lol. We still go to most of the gun shows around. 90% of the guns I had before the boating accident came from gun shows.

    Some type of Mauser 7.62x54. $60 found out it was stolen and gave it back to owner. First real legal purchase was a model 336 30-30. Loved that old Mauser. Thing would shoot. Killed two deer first day I got it.

    Remington 870 Youth Model at 12.

    Mowed yards, raked leaves, plucked golf balls, and saved up a lot of Birthday money to buy that gun. There were no guns in our house until I bought mine.
