.22 lr single shot

Post  Jim Erickson on Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:43 pm

When I was about 7 my dad bought me a single shot .22 for shooting grouse when I went deer hunting with him. I loved shooting it, but it had a trigger issue and would go off on its own. Dad took it to a trusted friend/gun smith and said it really wasn't repairable. Then when I turned 14 I used my paper route money and I purchased a .30-.30 marlin lever action for $80. I still have it. I love that gun. I can nail anything under 50 yards. It is ok at 100 yards, but then I tend to prefer a different caliber and more accurate weapon.

.22 lever

Post  ResistTyranny on Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:53 pm

When I was 6 or 7 Dad took me plinking with his .22 rifle. Had years of gun safety lessons at home and lots of instruction with a .22 pellet airgun but that was the first time I got to pull the trigger on a firearm. Save up Christmas and birthday money and lawn mowing money for a couple years and bought my own .410 a couple years later. Took my first deer with that shotgun on my second hunt.

Like you, I never grew up around guns and never imagined myself ever shooting one or being in the military. First gun I ever shot was a friend of my Recruiters up in the mountains of NY....a musket. It knocked me on my ass and bruised my shoulder but when my Recruiter saw I had disintegrated the target, he knew I'd do well on the range and I did. High shooter and Expert marksman every year of my service lol. I wanted to be a sniper but obviously due to my gender it was a closed MOS for females. I was talked to about joining the competition shooting team though. I've been hooked ever since and have shot with practically everything from vehicle mounted to some very 'modified' crazy guns that friends had cooked up in their garages shops lol

I recall shooting a pistol and rifle of some sort as a child (7 or 8 ) at Bible camp...no idea what they were. I've been around firearms all my life, my uncles, my father, and friends. But I believe the 'bug' bit me when I was able to save up and get a Ruger 10/22...think I was 16.

Thats how i have been, I never even handled a weapon growing up.(No BB's gun, pelet gun, nothing) Went into basic, and i've been shooting 39-40/40 since.

The first gun that I ever shot was my Grandpa's 300 Savage. My shoulder hurt, but I hit the target. I was about 8 years old.

My first other than a BB gun lol, would be a .410 pump that my dad got me when I was like 8 it got stolen tho. Would give a lot to have that thing back! First rifle was a .22 followed soon by a 30-30. It's all been uphill from there! I love my guns

Marlin 30-30

Post  dhooksc on Fri Dec 28, 2012 12:44 am

First shot was with my dad's Marlin 30-30. He still has that gun. Won't even sell it to me even though he hasn't shot it in 30 years.

Ruger 10/22. First pistol was a CZ83 or Star 9mm. Can't really remember. I really enjoyed shooting the 22, but shooting the pistols is what made me fall in love with shooting.

Grew up around guns, reloads and competition shooting. Like most, my first gun was a bb gun, but graduated to a .22-250 and a 30-06 at 13. Since then I've shot so many different guns it's almost hard to name them all. It's definitely turned into a bit of an addiction.
