    Mine was a single shot shotgun (I can’t even remember the brand) but I remember it was called the silver hunter. Super cheap is the only reason I bought it, didn’t have any money then I just wanted to buy a gun when I turned 18, I believe it was $129.99 at the bargain barn in Jasper. That thing would just about kill you every time you pulled the trigger. I tried finding them online and I can’t find them, I remember it was made in Turkey though. What was all y’all’s first purchases?

    edit: it was a TR imports silver eagle 12 gauge youth. I can’t find one that looks like mine but it’s stainless, all I see now is blued.

    A Ruger 10/22 I bought from my best friend. It has been back and forth over the years and I am the present owner.

    First I bought was a Taurus PT-99. Dad bought me my first two. One is a H&R 12ga Topper single shot and the other was a Marlin 336 in .35 rem. I still have all and shot them all still today.

    Glock G32 gen 3, midsize 357 Sig. LOVE shooting that round, but too expensive now. Not sure there is such a thing as a Glock safe queen, so guess it's title is gun safe patriarch now
