used Browning Sweet 16, I was 16. Picked slate in a coal tipple to buy it.
Winchester 94 I was 7 years old, hardware store in town sold guns “1978” the owner asked my parents permission and let me put $10 on it and did a lay away deal, I mowed yards, chopped out tobacco and anything I could for a dime that year till I paid it off! Still one of my most cherished rifles
Marlin Golden 39A, bought it when I was 16 at the old Maloney's in Prestonsburg where the old Lake Bowling Lanes used to be. I think it was 79.00

I inherited a Glennfield Mod 25 .22 bolt action and had a Mossberg bolt .410 that I received for Christmas at 12 or 13.
First gun I bought was an H&R "Topper" mod 88 in 12 gauge at age 14. Cost me $48 at K Mart. Weighs about 4-5 lbs and has a stout jab when you drop the hammer on it! I forgot about it for years after getting a Mossberg 500 at age 19 then with age comes nostalgia and I still hunt with all the guns mentioned except the .410 which I traded in on a Browning A Bolt .
Remember when we could just walk into a western auto or local hardware store and just say I want that one. Hand some cash over and walk out. Good ole days

Many many years ago was a store in town called Stokelys army surplus.
In the store they had old wooden barrels jammed full of old used army
rifles from ten to twenty dollars each. I picked out a Mauser-98 bolt action in 30-06 cal.
I gave 15 bucks for it. It was a pretty good shooting gun well as I remember.
first one I bought with my own money was a Glenfield 30-30
