    My first gun I got when I was 4 years old, and it was a Remington 870 pump 20 gauge.

    Lets hear it from you guys!

    I got a mossberg .410 pump when I was in the 3rd grade. Still like shooting skeet and birds with it every once in a blue moon.

    my grandpa gave me a Remington 1100 20ga. I didn't get my own gun till I was almost 12, can't hunt in Idaho till you are 12. I still use it for forest grouse, but use my B2000 that my dad gave me last year for everything else.

    20 gauge Remington 1100 semi-auto was the first shotgun I used. Killed some quail and sage hen with it, but moved onto a 12 gauge pretty quick.

    on a serious note

    its probably because of the recoil..i used to shoot the MOSS 835 and it would make me flinch and therefore miss ducks

    i now shoot a smooth soft shooting browning gold 3.5
