Post the first gun you ever shot and your age
8yo, shot a 4 inch .38 special in kentucky
S&W M&P-15 Magpul. It was in Florida.
Ruger 10/22, camping with my dad when i was 7. shot and hit a soda can. cherry 7 up, i think.
My fathers double barrel 12g
Looked like pic
my uncle's post-war Luger P08
I wish I lived in the land of freedom and applepie
I've been shooting as long as I can remember. My dad has a really heavy .22 that I shot from a bench with his help. I must have been four or five.
My dad got me a bb gun for Christmas when I was six. I shot the thing every single day in our backyard. He'd come out and compete with me, taking turns with the bb gun.
He gave me my first rifle when I was 12, a .22 caliber plinkster. Recently he gave me his Remington model 700 chambered in .30-06. It has a bent front sight and there's corrosion on the barrel. It won't hold zero. The stock is gouged, scratched, and chipped. Its old. It's the best gun in the world.
7 or 8 years old? Hard to remember stuff from over two decades ago.
It was some kind of 22, a bolt action that handled anything from shorts to long rifle.
The same day they let me(tricked me?) shoot a 12ga, it literally knocked me on my ass the first shot. It hurt, but I took a few more shots because that was so much fun. That was my first taste of recoil.
well when i was 15 my mom let me have this baby
Stevens 16 gauge bolt action, 6 years old. Also two old bolt action .22 rifles the same day, one single shot, one not. I don't remember the brands but they were old. Speaking on this topic, I think I'm going to buy one of those old bolt 16 gauges just to have now. Thanks OP
7, Cricket 22LR
by 8 I was popping squirrels all day with that thing, still an awesome gun imo
>14 yearold be Ausfag
>love COD and halo and guns in general
>mum contacts her crazy farmer friend and asks to let me shoot some of his guns
>blast shit with sks's, pump action shotguns, pistols of some sorts etc
>years later realise how illegal it all was
>mfw my first time shooting was with things most shooters here only dream about
It was my dad's old .22, it might be a Marlin, I don't remember, its an older rifle, semi auto, the charging nob kinda looks like the one on the SKS and I think its on the left side? Been quite a while since I've held it. I was probably between 7 and 9, don't remember.
it was a single shot .22 short rifle, i was probably 5. My brother said it was just found in the garage in our old house when we moved in. We used to drive out to farm land by the everglades and shoot at gator (totes illegal, now). I wouldn't even know where to begin looking for .22 short ammo nowadays
a m16 a2 at 17 in basic training.
6 years old
Remington nylon 11. Still have that gun and probably use it more than any other I own.
I was 12 I think. It was a litte Cooey Mohawk 75 plinker.
16, a really old and shitty m9. The last time my dad had fired a gun was 30 years ago but he decided to take me shooting for some reason. Loved it ever since.
Around 9 or 10yo, dad's old ass 870 express While hunting in MN.
Older Brother put a 3" 00 shell 3 rounds into the mag to fuck with me, and it knocked me on my ass.
Fuck you Joe
1911 with a old Aimpoint and grip mount
Can't believe there are like only like two pictures of this setup on the internet
A S&W .357 Revolver, red-dot sight.
Pretty sure I was 13 at the time, and was at a firing range in Queensland (technically Hamilton Island).
My uncle had a 460 Weatherby Magnum that he let me shoot when I was 10. Got a huge bruise from it, but got hooked on big guns from that.
Pic related, middle one is the one.
8 or 9
.38 revolver and a bolt action m1. Shortly after, port arthur happened and the old man handed in his guns.
In the process of getting my license now. It seems like i am in one of the hardest states to get a license as well.
I was visiting my grandfather in the serbian part of bosnia. It was a full auto but honestly I struggled to pull the trigger. It was damned hard.
.410 single-shot break action, while dove hunting. Didn't hit shit with it.
Got upgraded to a 12 gauge pump the next year, hit my bird limit on the first day.
I still have the 12 gauge. Either my brother or my dad has the .410. It doesn't see much action anymore. Someone fucked up the muzzle at some point, and my uncle's solution was to just cut it down a few inches without realizing that by doing so he created an illegal SBS.
I was a faggot army cadet, first thing I shot was a bolt action version of the SA80 A1. Firing a couple of mags though that was painful
Remington 514. It was a bolt action .22 my father and I got when I was around 5 to 8 years old, we're not sure exactly. that was mid to late 1970's.
I will never forget that he made me shoot it first, I had no idea what to expect so that made it very exciting. Shooting with my father is among my very fondest memories.
pic related but from a google search, I still have mine but it's at my fathers house atm.
Smith & Wesson Model 39, at the range with my dad.
He suggested I fire his 10/22 first but I really wanted to fire the handgun. Put maybe 6 rounds through it before I decided I'd rather use the .22 first.
Other than hundreds of thousands of BBs and pellets...
a NEF Pardner .410 break-open shotgun at the age of 15. Within a couple years I had 6 or 7 guns and today I have 15 or 16.
Still not enough of a pussy to complain about the "large grip."
Still have that gun too. :)
I had a Glenfield model 60. Tube mag. Loved that gun. If I remember right, 22lr was $1.25 for 50 round box ea.
