      What was your first firearm purchase?

      ~Mine was a XD40 service. The rest of my firearms were all gifts. I am a lucky guy I guess.

      It was a Model-10 S&W in 1958. I think I paid about $75.00 as it was used.

      First handgun--Ruger P89, first rifle--Ruger 10/22. I spent the first ten years trading with what was handed down/given to me before I ever purchased anything.

      Just bought my son one of those (his first)! Actually I owned one myself (Crossman 760 pump). We went out for the first time this weekend. He's 9 (almost 10) and a hell of a shot! Although Dad had to show him a thing or two about shooting accurately. I must have owned 4 or 5 bb/pellet guns as a kid. Rifles and Pistols. Funny how it never carried over into larger calibers in adulthood. My interest in guns has only recently come back (I'm 40 now). I just signed up for a 12 hour CPL course.

      Brass Eagle paintball gun. I shot a chipmunk, a rabbit, and a dove with it. They all lived. I also shot the USPS mail truck as it was stopped by my mailbox. One direct hit left the entire side of the truck bright pink. I was pleased with myself.

      Mine was a Beretta 92FS with Trijicon sights. Still have it, and imagine I always will.

      jennings 380 (oops) that thing would fire 1 shot then the mag would jam so after about 5 shots I decided it was time to put it away. When I took it back in the house I realized the frame had crack from the trigger guard to the slide. But from what I hear 5 shots was pretty impressive for these guns.

      First two firearms were gifts as a kid. My trusty Red Ryder 200 shot range model air rife.

      Next was a Remington .22 rifle that I recently recovered from my parents house after 17 years of shameful neglect. Not a single spot of rust though!

      My first true purchase was back in October. A Smith M&P9 full size. I love it. It was the first handgun I held that felt like it truly fit my hand.
