    First gun was a 20ga stevens single shot, me and my brother both bought one. They were the same gun just had different finishing in the wood. We would squirrel hunt every day we could get in the woods back then.

    First owned was a Marlin model 25 Glenfield .22 bolt action, a gift from Dad on my 11th birthday, he bought it used, think he later told me he paid $75 for it.

    First I purchased was a Taurus 92 9mm, blued, paid $279 at the original Buds Gun shop on Industry Rd in Lexington on the other side of the street from where they are now. That was when Bud Wells actually worked there and if you came in fairly regularly, he would call you by name. It was a lot more fun going in there back then, and he had much better deals....

    Still have them both.

    I bought a Marlin model 60 when I was 14. Met the old guy in a neighborhood saloon to conduct the deal. Things have changed a *LOT*...:D

    Old single shot .410. My barber had let me use it growing up, when I got older I gave it back. Walked in his shop one day, he had it in there for sale. I bought it right then.
