    Think I was 24. Bought the S&W 44mag for hunting purposes mainly. Didn't really know what I got or what I was doing. Damn near blew my thumb off learning the hard way by placing it in front of the cylinder when trying to sight it in, ouch. Never forget the look on the sheriff's face when I went to registered it.

    i shot my first firearm when i was 10-12 i think, it was my dads .357 snubnose, man was it fun, but man was it tough for a 12 year old kid to hit something with a gun like that! but i didnt really get into handguns until about 6 months ago (age 20) let me tell ya, it sucks being ready to buy your first handgun and not being able to because your not 21!

    I am getting my first one this year.(hopefully within the next month or so) I grew up around guns and was always shooting my dads .22 colt revolver. I remember when he got a 6 shot revolving pepperbox that would shoot a .45 or a 410. that thing had a derringer grip on it and was a beast to hold onto. he would alternate the loads and hand it to me. I never new if I was going to shoot the .45 or the 410. surprising the 410 would kick less then the .45

    Plinking at targets from the back porch along the treeline with my Dad. I was about 6-7 yrs old. This is one of the things that has stuck in my head all these years.

    I was 16 when I bought my first handgun. It was a Ruger .22/.22mag convertible, single action Blackhawk. I've still got it 42 years later!

    I shot a gun for the first time in 1989, when I was 21, at the academy. I cannot remember what gun it was; back then, we shot a large variety of 9mm handguns made by Beretta, Glock, SIG-Sauer, and Smith & Wesson. Ultimately, I chose a SIG-Sauer P228 as my duty gun, which I still have, but I do not use very much on the job. Because I often work plainclothes/undercover, I prefer to use a SIG-Sauer P230/P232, which I have been pocket-carrying every day for almost 20 years. The first firearm I purchased was a new SIG-Sauer P230, in .380 ACP, in Los Angeles, January 1990.

    In my opinion, carrying a P228 on the waistband screams 'COP', and I do not like inside-the-waistband carry.

    Still, I like the P228, and shoot 650 rounds a month, and qualify with it 4 times a year. Otherwise, it sits in a locker or drawer or glove compartment.

    I also learned to shoot a Remington 870 shotgun and Heckler & Koch submachine guns and Colt assault rifles, yet I do not like or use long-guns very much, and I only qualify with the shotgun.

    I wanted to be the Lone Ranger, so on my third birthday, my Dad got me the Lone Ranger's twin cowboy pistols made out of metal (I thought they were real) complete with the black double holster. My Mother says I slept in them.

    This is a pic of me wearing them on my 3rd birthday:


    My Dad let me hold my Grandfather's old 32 S&W revolver when I was 5. He said I asked to hold it again everyday for the next two weeks. I got to shoot the 32 when I got older.

    The first handgun I ever bought was a used Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 for whitetail hunting. The first new pistol I ever bought was a Beretta 92fs. I have had a lot of handguns since, but I still pull out that old 32 now and then.

    I grew up in Maine. We always had guns in the house, for hunting & sport, primarily. They were accessible to me at a young age, but I was "educated" on when I should & should not touch them. I was given free reign & was pretty responsible, I suppose.

    I shot a lot of squirrels with a .410 single-shot and a .22-cal fixed-sight target revolver early on. Also had a lot of fun with a 7-shot Mossberg 20-gauge pump and a .357 Dan Wesson revolver--but it wasn't until recently that I got the chance to shoot a semi-auto handgun.
