Tell me about the first time you shot a gun /k/. I want to relive the magic of it all
Niggas sweatin me round the block and they didn spect nuthin when I pulled mah 22 piece
bix nood mah dindu
Loaded a round into the mosin I blindly bought in a private sale.
Cocked it.
Got a little kick, but wasn't too bad.
Was pleasantly surprised at what it felt like.

I was hooked from there. I haven't been hunting really and have only shot a couple birds here and there since then, but I've spent about $7k on guns since then, always with plans for more when finances allow.

Can't you just infer what they meant like a normal person ? You do have to "cock" any gun before firing. There's just different ways it happens

>.410 shotgun from when he was 12 years old

That was my first gun. This ancient single-shot Winchester. I remember my dad taught me to fire when I was three by sitting me down in his lap and helping me hold the gun because I was too weak to even aim properly.

I was afraid to pull the trigger because loud scarry noises but once I did, I was hooked.
Dumbass where the hell do you think your at?

tfw I have never shot a gun....
Shit, I can't even remember the first time I shot a gun, but I was five or six.

Shooting my dad's 870 at 8 wasn't a bright idea, though. I don't remember being too phased by it though, I just didn't shoot anything bigger than a .22 again until I was 12.

Years later, I'm shitposting about my favorite calibers on a Mongolian calligraphy forum and anticipating my next purchase, which will be this week.

I fucking loved it
>This is a fishing rod.

I was twelve.It was in Arkansas, with my father, shooting the Marlin .22 that I had gotten for Christmas.

I miss that gun, /k/. It was left behind when my crazy mom decided that she was tired of living with my father and that the best thing that she could do was pack herself, me, and my dog into her 72 Super Beetle and move us to Washington State.

All in all 10/10 experience looking back at it. The next day we did this simulator thing with chalk rounds, pretty fun.

Flash forward 3 years or so, I have my CHL and my first gun. Thankfully I have a few close friends who are very knowledgeable about firearms, and have taught me a lot. About to inherit 32k from an aunt I never knew, so I'll probably build an AR or buy something fun.

First time I've ever shot a real weapon, weapon was the Finnish RK62. It got pretty fucking cold with the lighter march garments after all the sweat had dried up from the march to the gun range and it was probably 20 degrees below Celsius. Shooting felt great though, I've always wanted to shoot a gun and have been meaning to start shooting as a hobby at some point. I like guns as mechanical pieces as well. The smoke off the gun in the cool air and the smell of gun powder in the air was kinda neat.

She's got a little collection of airguns, understands some good fundamentals like magazine changes, cover, controlled pairs, and stuff like that.

But she doesn't know that she's gonna be the owner of her own real guns by next Christmas.

First time I ever shot a gun

>At friends house out in the country

Pretty unexciting, but there was another time shortly after I went over to another pals house just out of town and I shot his 20 gauge. I remember thinking it kicked a lot but liking it, and getting EEEE for the first time.

My father and I had a "Man Day" when I was 11 or 12. We drove out into the country. He let me drive for a little while, have my first taste of beer, take a drag off a cigarette, and shoot his 20 ga. and a 10/22.

He died not long after that.

I'm glad we had that time, though.
I'm sorry to hear that, anon.

After that I got really into shooting and guns. Cousin is now a heroin junky.
Seriously don't remember the first time I shot a gun. I do have a picture of the first dove i killed but I've had a 28 gauge semi auto for as long as I can remember. Now have grandfather's gun collection in my closet. My closet has more guns that clothes in it.

Libtards never fail to amaze
Your ol' pops has good taste. I picked up a 1969 BL-22 from an old guy last year. Hadn't been fired in over 30 years and was in the original packaging inside the original box that it shipped in. Immaculate condition, could only find two tiny dings in the wood stock. What gorgeous, fun rifles they are. I hope you pass yours on in the same fashion if you ever have a son or daughter.

He used to be Anon. We would go out to Okeechobee to go riding on ATV's and he owned a Predator 500, thing was fast as fuck. So I'd ride with him every time, we'd listen to Rob Zombie, Metallica, all kinds of shit, and go out for a fun day of riding and muddin'.

He started drinking again and I haven't heard from him in about 8 years. Shame.

It was a ruger mk2 at a pistol range when I was 15 with my conframation mentor at a church my parents went to.
Then steped up to a star firestar which which I fucking loved. After I tried an old .38 smith and wesson ww2 era revolver which was also sex in the hands but I couldn't hit shit with and then finally a glock 23 which was kinda flavorless but I out shot the nra instructer owner.

Great time.
Actually I'm 513 Cincinnati. But I could throw a rock and hit the river. Lots of family in Somerset.

My father is an old-school type. When I was young, he would always take me out deer hunting with him, just waiting until the day that I could get my license and hunt with him. When I was 11, right before I was able to attend Hunter's safety, he took me out on a hunt with him. It was near the beginning of the season, but cold as all hell. We had posted up in a homemade camouflage hut my father had built, just waiting and waiting. After some time, we finally spotted a small herd traveling across the field adjacent to the tree strip we placed the hut in. Like always, my father handed me the binoculars and told me to keep a sharp on on the buck in case it wasn't a clean kill. So my father shot, and the buck and his menagerie of does took off in a scramble. I kept my eye on the thing and was fairly certain that I saw it bed down. The both of us set out to track the big fella down. We saw the blood and followed it to where I thought I saw him bed down. Sure enough, he was there. The buck was trying straining his neck and clawing at the ground with his front hooves. When we got a little closer, he stopped and just stared at us. My father pulled out his sidearm of choice, a Ruger Super Redhawk. He looked at it for a moment, and then handed the pistol to me, explaining that my time to learn about shooting and hunting was coming up soon so I might as well knock out two birds with one stone and have a little experience with ending the hunt as well as shooting in general. I explicitly remember being surprised at the weight of the thing. I had seen my father with it many times, but never really took heaviness into consideration. He told me to take off my gloves to shoot it. The metal was extremely cold in my hand. He helped my pull the hammer back, and told me it would be loud, to hold tight, aim carefully, and to not be scared of the recoil. So I took aim at the deer's head, looking down the sights and wavering ever so slightly.
I felt a tinge of remorse for the animal because it was just frozen there, staring at me as a mentally prepared myself to shoot this (now quite intimidating) gun. I could feel my father's stare from behind me and decided it was then or never. So I squeezed the trigger, went momentarily blind and dead, and looked around at my father. He patted me on the shoulder and took the Redhawk back. We both looked on as the buck struggled some more and bleated. I vividly remember his legs sticking up and twitching wildly. After about 10-20 more seconds, it finally stopped moving. My father asked my what I thought, and I told him I honestly didn't know. Of course, when we got back to the house later that night and I slept on it, I realized that it was an amazing experience and that I absolutely could not wait to finish my safety course and ask my dad to try out some more. Ever since then, I've been hooked. Thanks for listening to my story, /k/.

I'm not sure how old I was exactly, talking with my dad about it we think about 7+/- surely under 10.

my father gave me a beautiful Remington single shot .22 rifle. we went shooting in an old family junk yard, bottles, cans and some paper targets. the thing I remember most was he had me take the first shot, I had no idea what to expect, that was very exciting. that was about 40 years ago and I'll always remember that day, I love my father very much.

Half a mile out of town in the country. Shot some 12 gauge shotgun and it kicked my 8 year old ass like a mule.

Never turned me off guns though. My earliest gun memory is watching my dad shotty a giant toad and watched it explode into a pink mist.

Good times.

Was alot of fun and even for a class full of SJW liberals everyone of them had a smile and admitted how fun it was.

Nice. How long ago was that?

We did that stuff in middle school during the 90's. We also got to shoot black powder, throw tomahawks, and do some other shit.

A different time though. I used to trade Guns & Ammo magazines with my homeroom teacher in 6th/7th grade.
that was 2012, I was suprised considering our teacher was such a hippy but she didn't even tell the school we were going shooting, Just a field trip .

I shot my dad's .410 the other day. 2 3/4" shells of 7 1/2 shot. Had more kick than I was expecting, and I've shot 12ga.
Mine was pretty boring. I went to a summer camp when I was in 5th grade or so and, having a rather large interest in military history, signed up for the riflery course. They were .22s. That was it for a while, because my mom wasn't that big into guns around the house. Probably partially because my older brother used to be completely batshit insane when his schizophrenia was bad, but he hadn't been bad since I was two. My dad, on the other hand, really did like guns, and used to hunt a lot. Still has his rifle he first got in 1967 when he was 12.

This all changed when my mom, who used to train cops on how to deal with people with mental illnesses, read something by Dave Grossman, I think. She got really scared about the criminal mind at that point, and really wanted to get a gun for protection. While that didn't last for long, it opened the way to having guns in the home. A couple years after that, my dad ended up taking me shooting. Then, when I turned 18, he got me a Ruger American in .243.

That's pretty much that.

my dad who never did anything with me or taught me anything decided he would try and 'bond' with me by taking me into the woods so i could shoot his pistol with him
i was dumb with guns but he was asshole about them(like i didnt know trigger discipline so what he did was grab the gun out of my hand and yell at me)
he insisted he put my ear plugs in too and they werent in all the way so every shot it hurt my ears

Was going to call BS had you said you got off scot-free. I talked with a BRfag recently, and he said that you *can* kill in self-defense, but it's nothing like here in the States where it's an open-and-shut case, usually.

How's the Mossberg MVP? The magazine wiggled a lot when I held one at my LGS which turned me off of it but it was cheaper than the Ruger gunsite and I otherwise like the design. Worth picking up for a hog gun?

Was pretty fun. Recoil was stronger than I expected and I limp wristed once so the gun jammed, but I didn't flinch or anything.
Going back tomorrow!

Can you guys recommend some good shooting gloves that keep warm while not getting in the way? Because it's supposed to be -20C tomorrow and the range is outdoors.

It was a warm summer day in 1998. My father took me, my older brother, and his friend John from California to go on a fishing trip. It was a get away from the city and his failing electrician business.

A few a very fruitful morning fishing run on Crystal Lake. We caught some sizable fish that I thought was "the fight of my life." Lost more hooks that day because I did not get the process of "trolling motor fishing."

After a hearty breakfast my father decided to take a nap and my fathers friend John decided to show us his BB Guns and a Marlin .22. He taught us general basic weapon safety and set up last nights beer cans as targets. My older brother made short work of the Commie Miller Cans from Commiefornia. John hated California but he loved his job with the DoD in Monterey.

When John handed me the Marlin .22, I had to stand extremely awkward to balance myself. John corrected my posture but my little 8 year old arms couldn't hold the Marlin right so I could stand properly. We settled on me sitting criss-cross applesauce style and a plank to handle the rest.

My aim was true on my first shot and I nailed that Red Commie Miller Can from Commiefornia near the top. The sound was so rewarding and I was so excited I picked up the rifle and turned towards John to show off my newly learned skill.

John never cena coming as my second shot grazed the left side of is right knee.
did you buy him the beer? this is important.

Not yet, but going back tomorrow and Sunday to shoot more. He will get his beer!

>he didn't wear ear-pro
I had been playing with toy guns for years. Nerf, airsoft, you name it. I remember distinctly the distinctions when I first fired a real gun.

It wasn't like the faux-recoil I pretended to experience when shooting imaginary bad guys in my backyard. It wasn't a slow, methodical you could anticipate and control as it unfolded. It was a sudden, lightning-strike jolt. The quick jerk was nothing like the fake recoil I had simulated with the toys.
Of course the noise is a surprise. If you've only seen guns in action movies you're expecting little pops and pew-pews. Then you get the tremendous thunderclap of a real firearm. Just like the recoil, it was more sudden and more violent than vidya games and movies portray it.
For some reason I was surprised by the smoky, chemical scent of spent gunpowder. Once I got that first whiff, I realized how rough and dirty guns were.

To sum up, I learned guns were messy, loud, angry, shouting instruments of oily,metallic, industrial, flaming death. It was pretty cool.

Bit short on cash this month but thanks for the offer. Maybe we could get a german /k/ meetup going sometime. Probably going to be raided and jailed for right wing terrorism tho
if only he had been using an Enfield
my friend's dad was a historical recreationist for the 1812 era and a sarge at the local old fort so one day when were were about 10 years old he took us out to try shooting his black power muzzle loader for the first time. That musket nearly knocked me on my ass and the birch tree i shot splintered out the backside .... it was fucking awesome

Fast forward to now I am 18 and own an AR15, a nugget, and as of last week a Remington 870 Wingmaster made in 1982. I look back fondly at that first range trip because it is really what got me into guns
Unless you have a Muslim or two there then raiding it would be racist even if you where openly planning a terror attack

Nobody cares, but here's my entire history of acquiring guns

>be me, 14 or 15
>shot hundreds of thousands of BBs as a kid, got my own Daisy at 7 or 8
>a lot of family owns guns, but all fudd guns and they never seem to shoot them
>dad surprises me with a Lil Pardner .410 single-shot shotgun for Christmas along with a box of clays
>I'm finally hazguns
>he takes me out to shoot it in the marsh, can't hit anything but have a blast
>to this day, when I'm shooting the recoil is there but I don't really register it
>soon after that he gives me two .22 rifles he had as a kid and helps me restore them to working order

Since then I've acquired 11 more guns, have my C&R, buy at least two guns every year. I'm 27 now and just built my first AR15 (20" HBAR A2 style thanks to stupid Maryland laws)

Thanks, Dad, for deciding I was mature enough to own a gun. It started a long and pleasurable journey into the hobby.

I've already gotten my niece and nephews into shooting and one of them even has their own rifle now. I think he's a better shot than I am, and he's my wingman in case of zombie apocalypse.
Wasn't too magical for me, for a lot of reasons. But I'll skip the life story.
>be 21
>first gun I fired was a ruger sp101, tree fiddy seven
>gf was with me at the time
>she also shoots gun for first time

Unfortunately, the range was empty, so we had the 60 year old range master watching us the whole time.

>Be 11
I lived on a farm basically my whole life, I was always shooting at shit with bb guns and running through fields of crops. One day my brother in law shows me his twelve gauge Remington Wingmaster shotgun, asks me if I want to shoot it. FUCKYES.JPG. Shows me how to load it, put earmuffs on my head and when im ready to shoot he puts his shoulder behind mine and holds the shotfun to control the recoil. I take like two minutes to actually fire and when I do the shotgun blasts the shit out of my shoulder. Never had such an adrenaline rush in my life.
>8 years old
>grandfather hands me 12 guage with slug
>"Pull it up super tight to your shoulder, aim, and fire. It kicks like a mule"
>father walks up
>"if you pull it away from your arm just as you fire, there won't be any recoil"

That was the day I started hating both shotguns and my father.
Good story.
i don't remember the first time I shot a gun.
I remember the first time I shot a 12 gauge. I was probably about 8. It was a single shot nef and I remember struggling to level the barrel. I shot a deodorant can about 15 yards away. My uncle said, "Now you've shot a cannon." That was exactly how I felt too.

i taught my 8 year old sister all the positions and techniques too and now i'm on a list and can't go to the park anymore.

He's the dad you have...

Pretty underwhelming experience all in all.
I first shot a gun 2 weeks ago. A 9mm pistol and an AR.

It was fun, but I'm 32.

The initial excitement was buried under an avalanche of disappointment that it didn't happen decades ago.
>brother gets arrested by police for gun

What crime did he commit? It wasn't in his possession, so..

Before I was born my dad got rid of all but his .22, I still don't know who's idea it was, he blames it on my mom and she blames it on him. He had an M91 Mosin from 1894, an SKS, several pistols, etc. He got the second mosin after I was born. And now I have it, hanging on my wall in my room. He's told me several times he wishes he would have never sold his old guns because he never had a problem with me and didn't realize I'd be this into it.

Pic related, my first rifle, also the first center fire rifle I ever fired, right after I shot that .22

Should also mention that me and my dad go shooting whenever I see him now, he lives in Idaho and I live in Pennsylvania so it's kinda hard to just go shootin with him.

Still a no funz faggot, but I will be addressing that soon enough once I have cash again.

i was 14. my mom told the police where i got gun from. police also questioned me about it.
he was also in deep shit for other things not just the guns
Eh fuck it air rifle counts.
Got a red rider when I was 7.
Dad shows me how to load it, how to use it and where the safety is.
Explains gun safety to me and tells me if I mess around with it he will take it from me and I will not get it back.
Go into the old barn, see some birds.
Take aim and shoot, hit the beam it was sitting on.
Wait a few minutes, the fly back.
Manage to hit one.
Then we went out and shot cans for a while, it was a good day.

You need to stop fucking posting until you learn to tell a story at least half decently.

And, by the way, it shouldn't start out
>Was on /k/ underage I swear I was just lurking not shitposting
>Am "18 now I promise guys" and am still shitposting
>be very proud of that fact
but why? you're not special for having not shot a gun before
was in high school (16/17?), and my girlfriend's dad took me out to his friend's field and we went skeet shooting. there was plenty of beer and a distinct lack of hearing protection. Shit was awesome!
Oh, nice! I go to Miami over in Oxford. I'm currently nofunz at school because of where I'm living, but some of my friends shoot in Cincinnati
I was 7.

Dad, Uncle, and Grampa were all Boston cops. My other grandfather was Boston cop too but that POS was no longer in our lives.

They fill up Grampa's trunk with everything they
had. We go to Sally Rock, a small wooded area in a ghetto Boston neighborhood called Mattapan.

We spent all day shooting. Mom says she can here us shooting from the house. Nobody calls the police on us. Wouldn't matter, I was with cops, but it's an inner-city neighborhood so still surprised thinking about it.

First rifle I fired was a Ruger 10/22. Forty years later I still have it. I have a little brother born when I was 28. Dad died when he was 7. That same year I made sure it was the first rifle he fired. It was my son's first rifle too.

The three of us starting with the same rifle was more important to me than them. That was the only time I ever did anything with both my father and grandfather together, our family was a mess. It also got me hooked on a lifetime hobby so was important to me.

Times changed. We brought pellet guns to Sally Rock 10 years later and the police showed up..for frigging BB guns.

Life came full circle. My son was 3 when my father died so he doesn't really have a grandfather. I've been married almost 21 years but never met my father-in-law until last year. Long story, he has several families, keeps walking away to start new ones. Came back into their lives. I introduce myself. Start talking, he invites me to go shooting.

We go. He's a bit of an ass, won't be making a habit of this. I brought my son, realize this'll be the only time he ever does anything with his both father and grandfather together. Deja vu. My brother-in-law was there too, so like me, it was with his father, uncle, and grandfather. That's OK, it'll do. We go alone together and have a much better time.

FIL and BIL are excellent shots. Wife's grandfather was a gunsmith. I married into the right family.
>The smoke off the gun in the cool air and the smell of gun powder in the air was kinda neat.
They say smell ties greatly into memory.
I'll never forget my first when I walked into an old indoor range. Shot a 12 gauge, and the smoke and smell of gunpowder hits me in the face. Hell, my brain associates that smell with exhilaration and anxiety, it's like reliving your first rollercoaster experience every time you walk onto a range.
The smell reminds me of the Army.

Every time I go to the range and get my first whiff, I instinctively feel for my helmet. I gave up thinking that would wear off years ago.
>be me, 8
>in Germany visiting family
>(dad was airforce, met mom there b4 I was born)
>uncle sells his mauser (og, used in the war) to my step dad
>step dad takes me shooting
>shoot mauser
>ever since then loved shooting
fuck this picture made me laugh so hard
probably because I was already laughing at this scene
when I was 9 or so my scoutmaster let me onto the black powder range at peaceful valley. It was pretty cool. After I got back, I found out my mom was mad that I was allowed to touch a firearm because she didn't want "implements of death" glorified in my presence.

USP in 9mm, first time firing a handgun and also my favorite handgun because of the bulky controls, made it easy to work with my big ass hands. first rifle was a mosin nagant, didn't expect it to kick as hard as it did but fuck it turned me on, the bolt felt like trying to manhandle a rusted to fuck toaster oven though
