For high powered rifle it was an old WWI 8mm mauser, a 1916 Danzig. That thing was super accurate especially for it's age. I also had an old single shot bolt action .22 and what was so old I think was the very first model 16ga single shot.

I got an Indonesian made BSA copy Air rifle back when I was 14 years old.
Shot my one and only bird at 50 meters - It was a sparrow I think - and it was a lucky shot I think. Never shot any bird since then.. no duck, fowl, turkey magpie etc.. none.

First rimfire rifle Slazenger (Lithgow made) still have it
First Semiauto Rimfire RUger 1022 <-- Must give it up on Government Gun Grab in 1997
First Center fire rifle Ruger 77MKII in 243 WIN rebarreled to 308WIN two years ago
First shotgun Remington 870 <-- must give it up on Government Gun Grab in 1997

First rimfire Pistol Ruger MKI
First centerfire Pistol ParaOrdnance P14-45 <-- must give it up on Government Gun Grab 2001
First revolver SW686

Beside the Gun Grabs, I never sell any of my gun yet, and I hope never will have to.

Sure! In that case my was a break open "Marksman" Canadian Tire break action air rifle. Very Happy

After the M1A, next gun I get is going to be a one year anniversary gift to the next girl I manage to have around that long. So it might be her first gun. Laughing

Yes Dan, that's exactly what they did.. they take away your gun. Okay they did give you "compensation" with money, but how much did you treasure your memory? How do you measure the costs for all improvements and time spend tuning it and adjusting it so it is just perfect?
Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad
They call it "Gun Buy Back", me, I call it "Gun Grab"

Hi everyone... My first shotgun was an H&R Topper M48 in 20 ga. Still have it... My first rifle was a Rem 788 in 308 with a Tasco 4X scope - package deal at the Smitty's Grocery in Phoenix, AZ - 1979. I bought it for javalina and mule deer. Still have it also. I restocked it with a synthetic and put a new scope on it but I still have the original birch stock and scope. My son uses it every year. Very accurate gun for under $100.00 when I bought it.


Side note: I don't think I could stay in a county that "takes" my guns. Heck, I have trouble with the gun laws in this county.

My first rifle was a Japanese POS. Igot rid of it before I realized that I could have made a great custom rifle out of it. I got a 22 rimfire pump 16A. After that it just kind of expoded into the guns I have now.

First rifle (other than BB-guns) was a single-shot Remington 510 Targetmaster 22LR that my Dad bought in the late '40s and passed on to me (still have it and it still shoots great). First centerfire was a SMLE .303 British that I restocked and scoped (long gone now and was glad to see it go!).
